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.

Curt was super friendly, full of information, and took us where we wanted to go vs being on a tour where everything is predetermined. He had great recommendations and the use of visuals just brought everything into perspective. Great tour, great guide!

We enjoyed a great tour in January, during record cold temperatures with Curt. He was very entertaining (even to out three teenagers, who are not easily impressed). He made sure we were comfortable by ducking into cafes for a warm drink or snack when necessary, and made our one day in Munich a complete joy. Great value as well. Take... More

We came to tour and visit Munich with 35 hours to see the sites, learn, eat, and enjoy the family time together. Curt not only enabled all that to happen, but he actually made us feel like he was a part of our family for that short period of time. A great day was had by all and we will... More

Curt provided a 1:1 tour of the Third Reich highlights of Munich and it was an awesome experience. Customised, lots of personal insight and opinions and a real insight into the period. I certainly recommend you let Curt take you to some of the sights in Munich.

Our tour with Curt Milburn, owner and operator of Big Hat Tours, did an outstanding job. He was very informed and helpful. Gave us lots of information on Germany, Hitler and King Ludwick II. We had a great time.
