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 thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Curt. He truly knew his subject and presented it with clarity and humor! My husband I are senior citizens, and we were concerned about keeping up, but we did just fine with the pace. I was impressed with Curt's concern for us and his kindness. He made our trip of a lifetime most enjoyable!!

We had a fantastic experience with Curt at Big Hat Tours last week. We met at the train station in Munich Germany. It was a beautiful way to arrive in Salzburg. Curt gave us plenty of information along the way and was able to answer all our questions. Moreover, he was able to relate well to our entire, multi-generational group... More

Just did a tour with Curt this past weekend and I dont think I will do any other tour in Munich with anyone else from here on out. This was my 6th tour in Munich and I decided to initially go with BHT due to the lack of other tour options on a Sunday. Going with other tours previously, this... More

I had the pleasure of taking a walking tour with Curt back in January. He's originally from the US so english is his first language. We met early at a bakery and walked to all of the areas of interest. Some of the highlights were that Curt had an iPad with him on which he showed photos of historical events... More

My daughter and I took Curt's Third Reich tour. Since we were the only members in the group Curt was flexible and gave us options to cover both historic Munich and WWII related sites. He also does a great job of using images and video from his iPad to reinforce what you see on the tour. We walked for nearly... More

We did one of the small group tours with Curt with our two teenage sons. We only had two days in Munich so this was a wonderful way to see some of the best in Munich we wouldn't have otherwise had a chance to get to. Curt is personable, fun and super knowledgeable. We had a great lunch with our... More

We took two different tours with Curt, the Munich City Tour and the Dachau Tour. Curt has a great memory with a ton of historical facts and pictures. We enjoyed both tours very much. Curt did a wonderful job.

Curt made our stay in Munich our favorite stop. We did a Third Reich tour and a Dachau tour with him. Not only is he knowledgeable but he is very personable too.

Curt is a fabulous tour guide, and I wish we could have done even more tours with him. Three of us did a private walking tour, with rain threatening every minute, and Curt showed us the best of the city - including the little known spots (our favorite is the surfing). You can't go wrong with any of the Big... More
