My husband and I spent three days with Levi on tours in Bavaria. Each excursion was tailored perfectly to the subject at hand, varying from a tour of Dachau that was both informative and sobering to days spent hiking, stopping for well-timed beer breaks, and playing mini golf in the shadows of Neuschwanstein Castle. The continuous string of perfect TA reviews caught my eye when I was planning the Munich part of our vacation. After our time with The Thirsty Historian, I understand completely. Levi's passion for his job, knowledge of German history and culture, easygoing personality and kindness deserves each glowing post-tour review. Thank you for a great trip, see you next year!

We loved every minute of our time with Levi! We cannot say enough amazing things about him! He was extremely personable, knowledgeable, organized, and he was able to translate everything for us clearly not leaving out any details. Levi's plans for us always worked out without a hitch regardless of the unpredictable weather we were given...it was beautiful, rain or shine. He was a lot of fun!! He showed us the rich culture, amazing food and of course...the mind-blowingly-delicious BEER that we could not seem to get enough of!! His level of history knowledge also blew our minds and he showed us the significance of areas, buildings, etc. He made us feel very comfortable and made sure we were well cared for wherever he took us. We are sooo happy to have had the few private tours with Levi, our "Thirsty Historian" tour guide, because not only did it make our trip that much more epic...but now we have a new good friend in Munich! We will definitely be booking more tours with Levi and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a more intimate private tour with a more unique German experience!

Our tour guide was Levi. He is clearly passionate and extremely knowledgable about the history of Munich. We focussed on Hitler's birth, parents, his reasons for coming to Munich and the fascinating and frightening years of his reign. During the 3 1/2 hour walking tour, Levi took us to many buildings and plaques, historical venues and monuments which you wouldn't normally see on a regular tour. A definite must do if you are visiting Munich. Fantastic private tour and highly recommended.

Levi gave us a great walking tour of the city of Munich. He showed us an extensive overview of the main sites in Munich, especially relating to its history and World War II. Then, we received a great tour of one of the famous breweries in Munich. We got a behind the scenes look at how the beer is made, and even received a variety of samples at the end of the tour. He also provided us with great ideas for thing to do in our last night in Munich. He was a great guide and I would recommend him anyone! Very knowledgable and relatable! So glad we found The Thirsty Historian!
