Petra was an incredible guide. I had only part of a day to spend in Munich and wanted to make the most of it, but I could not have imagined how much she packed into four hours. Petra’s depth of knowledge regarding Munich’s history, culture, and customs was beyond impressive. Further, she included just the right amount of detail for this first-time visitor while not overwhelming me. Based on Petra’s ability to thoroughly introduce me to Munich, I know exactly where I will spend my time during my next visit.

Alex is a great at his job! He is so knowledgeable and kind. He really catered the tour to what our group wanted to see, and even spent extra time showing us around. He gave great recommendations for the rest of our trip. Can’t recommend Alex enough for a tour!

Martina was an excellent guide. She showed us much of the city center and included a lot of history. I was particularly glad to see the photos she showed of what the buildings had looked like after WWII.

Informative and interesting guide tour for a fair price.
