Description: Munich City, Third Reich, Dachau, Salzburg, Nuremberg and Neuschwanstein...
Munich City, Third Reich, Dachau, Salzburg, Nuremberg and Neuschwanstein and other Ludwig II Castles. A tour with Curt Milburn is like having a welcoming family friend show you around Munich. Curt's been called "The Wikipedia of History". He specializes in small group and private tours. Tours are tailor-made and Curt finds out what YOU want to see. His City Tours go beyond canned, set routes. You'll see the famous sites, architecture, learn about kings, Hitler, foods and beer. Our Third Reich Tours delve deep into more than when, but why and how the Nazis came to power and you'll see the bombed buildings of Hitler. Curt's Dachau tours are sensitive and remarkably moving and his Neuschwanstein and Castle tours are great fun. Salzburg & Nuremberg are within your reach with Big Hat Tours! Every tour is accompanied by an Apple i-Pad with hundreds of photos to put you into history.

I needed to arrange a walking tour of Munich for my son and family friend. After researching over a dozen options, I contacted Curt and he took care of everything. He responded to my emails promptly (usually same day, despite the 7 hr. time difference) with pertinent, helpful details so I was immediately confident he would take a personal interest... More

My family and I joined Curt on tour of central Munich last week. He did an incredible job showing us around the can't miss parts of the city. He was a perfect mix of knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and did a great job of telling the history of the city and each attraction. There is no doubt his tour is the... More

We did the Nurnberg tour with Curt largely because we wanted to see the Nazi Rallying Grounds and thought it would be interesting to have Curt help put it into historical context. He did exactly that with loads of great iPad pictures and fascinating historical facts. There is really something about seeing the various parts of the rallying grounds while... More

Curt of Big Hat Tours was our tour guide in Munich and for the Castle tours. Both were fantastic. We ended up being the only ones for his City tour so he customized it to our family's preferences. His knowledge of European and especially Germany history was impressive and helpful. For the Castle tour, he took care of all the... More

We did a half day walking tour of Central Munich, with just one other couple. Curt was knowledgable, interesting, funny and took the time to adapt it to areas that we were specially interested in. It wasn't particularly cheap, however you get what you pay for, and it was worth every euro, especially when we saw the hordes of tourists... More

We booked Curt for a walking tour of Munich, the Dachau tour, and the castles all day tour. Having Curt as our guide was like touring with a friend in Germany. He knows the history and explains things while keeping everyone engaged. Our teenage kids especially enjoyed his use of the ipad to show pictures. We were very lucky to... More

Took a 3 hour walking tour of Munich. The tour was very interesting and entertaining. Kurt knows Munich well and he's very good at providing historical context to everything you see. He obviously does a lot of research and accompanies the tour with stories, photographs, and paintings of how various places looked like through the years. The stories are lighthearted... More

Started the tour, he explained what time the Glockenspiel did it thing, not every hour, we saw several church's, he cared a iPad and had photos of how the area looked during WW2 and how the city was destroyed. We made it back to see the Glockenspiel move and then he took... More

My teenage kids and I went on the Third Reich tour. It was fantastic. Curt showed us pictures of the spots we were visiting from pre war and immediately post war so we could compare with what we were seeing. My 14 year old said it was one of his favorite parts of our entire vacation! Take this tour; you... More

We asked Curt for a private 3rd Reich tour. When we met him for the tour, he asked what sights we'd seen, what we were interested in, and he spent some time talking to my sons (aged 13 and 16). Based on this information, Curt kept the boys and their mom interested and energized. We learned a lot from the... More
