Chris was our guide on the tour. Great at involving the people on the tour. He was very knowledgeable about the historical facts about Munich with a wonderful sense of humor. Can’t wait to go on his tour about the history of the Nazis regime. A very enjoyable tour. Thanks Chris

We booked the walking tour before we travelled. We are so glad we did, we really enjoyed the tour taking us on a lovely walk on back streets we probably would not have found. Our tour guide Matt was very knowledgable about Munich giving us a lot of facts and history. Matts delivery of the information was interesting and lighthearted.

The Tour was good, Cara is well educated Tour Guide with history Background. We discovered many parts of Munich and we learned a lot about the history of the city.The Tour Guide is so nice with sense of Humor. The Only comment/Recommendation for her is just to take into consideration that people who attend the tour are from different backgrounds/interests so too much information and history sometimes was boring and we lost concentration and if she speaks more slowly that will be great.
