Curt’s been called “The Wikipedia of History” and he specialize in small group and private tours. Every tour is 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 Curt leads you to the bombed buildings of Hitler. Curt’s Dachau tours are sensitive and remarkably moving and his Neuschwanstein and Castle tours are great fun. Salzburg is within your reach with Big Hat Tours! Every tour is accompanied by an Apple i-Pod 3 with hundreds of photos to put you into history. Curt goes beyond any tour guide in Munich giving you tips on dining, shopping, attractions and where to stay. You can escape the over-crowed, boring and scripted tours with Curt Milburn and Big Hat Tours. « less

My husband and I were fortunate enough to take two tours with Curtis, a walking tour of Munich and Dachau. The walking tour was nicely paced, geared toward our interests, and educational. Curtis was very focused on making the tour specific to the group and consistently asked where and what we would like to see next. He is an exceptional... More

Curt was a fantastic, enjoyable and highly knowledgeable guide. We were a large ski club from the U.S., so he had a challenge in being able to keep up with and entertain such a big group. This he did very well. Our first day was a walking tour of Munich filled to the brim with much to see and do.... More

I traveled with a tour group from Chattanoonga, TN and had the pleasure of spending several days with Big Hat Tours. Kurt was our tour guide in both Munich and Salsburg. In Munich the weather was a little cool and windy, but Kurt gave us a very good tour of Munich, with lots of history of the city. Salsburg was... More

Curt led a fantastic tour for our high school group in March which was hugely enjoyed by teachers and students alike. We took the Third Reich Tour and also a trip to Dachau. Curt was deeply knowledgeable and brought the information to life in a way that was interesting and engaging to a notoriously difficult audience - teenagers! Curt's communication... More

While we had already made our way around Munich on our own, spending the afternoon with Curtis was the BEST way to learn about the city. His ability to share his love of history, humor and people as well as some of the best spots for ice cream and beer made the time well spent. He is paying attention to... More

We brought a group of second level History students to Munich and did the 'Third Reich' tour of Munich and a tour of Dachau. Curt was brilliant. He kept the students attention, and was extremely knowlegeable. A MUST for those with an interest in History!

Albeit slightly fragile from the previous evening (one too many steins) during a boys weekend trip abroad we had a brilliant day out around the city with Curt! The man is a fountain of knowledge and tells brilliant stories. He kept us engaged throughout the day (which is easier said than done) and adapted the tour to what we were... More

We took two tours, the Dachau Memorial Tour and the Third Reich Tour with Curt in February and I'm so glad that we did. Not only is Curt really easy to be with, his knowledge is vast and both tours were really interesting. We could never have seen or learned the things that we did without these Tours. Additionally, in... More
