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.

We would highly recommend Curt to anyone visiting Munich. My 16 year old son went on a private tour with Curt and loved it. Curt's ability to connect with a difficult teenager is amazing! Curt's knowledge and passion for the area is exceptional. We are looking forward to our next visit to Munich and will certainly reach out to Curt... More

I had a great experience with Curt. He is very knowledgeable and interesting. I'm not a history buff but he explained everything in a way I could understand. I wish I could take him with me traveling to explore every city!!!

We started our family trip to the Alps (Germany/Austria/Switzerland) last summer with a couple of days in Munich - an easy way for our teenagers to get adjusted to Europe! And the very first thing we did when we woke up after a good night's sleep was to take the half day tour of Munich with Curt from Big Hat... More

We had a wonderful day with Curt, visiting the castle Neuschwanstein out of Munich. Curt was extremely informative and very interesting to listen to. He was very organised and calm whilst looking after us, making sure that all went smoothly and we didn't have to lift a finger. He was great with my teenage children and they enjoyed his company....

We booked a Munich city tour and a Salzburg tour to make the most of our short visit and Curt exceeded every expectation that we had. He was able to tailor the tour to our individual interests and was incredibly knowledgeable and articulate. His understanding of history was impressive and he was able to impart a fresh perspective on many... More

Curt is an excellent tour guide. He was very good with correspondence prior to our arrival and he made adjustments in our tour based on the cold, snowy weekend weather. He mixed outdoor discoveries with indoor visits so we could warm up a bit. He was also very good about asking what we wanted to see and tailoring to our... More

It just doesn't get better than this. Curt who is big hat tours is easy to reach and answers emails promptly. We spent 3 hours touring the old town of Munich with Curt. He tailored the tour to our wishes and we discussed lots of other issues about German history as topics arose. He is extremely knowledgeable. We have done... More

The tour was good from start to finish. Curt’s clear instructions made it very easy to meet him for the first time. We were a small group of four, and he made it a point to understand what each of us wanted to see. The pace was good with appropriate breaks and integration of different points of interest given the... More

We only had one day in Munich and Curt's city tour allowed us to maximize our experience. The tour was very interesting and very well done. We couldn't have asked for a better way to see the city and learn about its history. Curt was very knowledgeable, with a good sense of humour. He adjusted the tour to our interests,... More

We have several teenagers with us and Curt instantly connected with them and had them engaged the entire tour. He was very flexible and we really got to know Munich in a very short period of time. Well worth the time and the tour - would highly recommend.
