I had a great time on this tour. It had the right balance of history, interesting sites, and hot spots to save for later. For a fit guy in his mid 30s, the tour was not very strenuous, which was really nice because I still had some energy after the tour to continue exploring. The tour guide, Michael was very knowledgeable about the area and history and chatting with him was very enjoyable. Recommended!

What people are saying about Schwabing
The roof is open when the weather is good. Don't forget your sunscreen and hat! You travel through the most important places in Munich, sights are of course the Nymphenberg Palace and the Olympiapark (you can't do both in one day, you really need a lot of time). The audio guide tells something about the city's history.
Interesting course of the tour. Good service, but very unfriendly lady in the office. Otherwise very friendly and hard-working staff.
Mike was our guide. He was very knowledgeable & informative about Munich & Bavaria. We highly recommend him. Danke!!
