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.

Curt does a great job. He loves what he is doing and it shows. While it might be easy for some to have their enthusiasm dampened with doing this everyday, not with Curt. He reminds me of my family, we have been to Disney World a few times and every time it's like the first time. Good stuff. Taking any... More

Curt was a wealth of information on both the City Tour and Dachau tour. It was really nice to explore these places with someone passionate about history. This is a man who enjoys what he does, and this is reflected in how he conducts his tours. I wish there was someone like Curt in every place I visited.

Curt did our private tour of Dachu. He did a great job making the history real with his commentary and pictures on his iPad. After the tour was over he provided ideas for things to to see the next day on our own as well as restaurant recommendations. Great guide.

My husband and I only had one full day in Munich and wanted to get the most out of our short time there. So glad we booked with Curt as he personalized our tour and made us feel as if we were touring Munich with a friend. He's a history buff with loads of knowledge to share yet it never... More

Curt and his son went out of their way to make this experience an incredibly informative and fun time! They were also extremely helpful, prompt, and flexible in coordinating the tour and following up about our experience. They truly helped customize this tour to our desires and needs and could answer almost (if not all) any question thrown their way!... More

Curt met us in an easy to locate spot in Meinplatz, and we just went from there. Curt was extraordinary amazing, and knowledgeable about Munich and... More

We spent 5 hours with Curt on a tour of Dachau Concentration Camp. Oh my!! It was five hours of extensive history. The knowledge that he has was beyond expectations. He made history come to life. He met us in town and we all road the train together. A day well spent.

Every moment was filled with history and entertainment. He is a delightful storyteller and makes history come alive. The day flew by, and we all agreed that he is the... More

Great tour of Munich customized to suit the interests of the group. Only four of us this afternoon and I think we all enjoyed the experience. Tour leader is an American who has been living in Germany for a number of years. He's a history buff with a good sense of humor. He's done his homework and I felt that... More
