We enjoyed the tour and the guide Joyel. I would recommend it storngly at the beginning of the stay. We did take a "Third Reich and Hitler tour" the day before so it was nice to get the more cosy version as a tourist as well. Lots of nice stories, tips for shops and restaurants and sightseeing for the rest of our stay. We did not have the time for Scloss Neuschwanstein, which we would have loved to take. So we have to come back at another occasion.

Description

We provide a short, sharp and comprehensive overview of Munich’s historical centre. It’s amazing how much you can see and learn in just 2 hours when you’re with a professional guide who knows how to combine in-depth detail with concision and humour.

We'll show you the highlights – the key historical sights, the most beautiful churches and the most famous beer halls. We won't ignore the more sinister aspects of 20th-century Nazi history, but we’ll introduce you the better face of our lovely city, too. We’ll also share what we think are the best stories and the most interesting facts.

Munich is a city of many identities: the heart of medieval Europe, the beer capital of the world, the "northernmost city in Italy", the “Athens of the Alps”, a great royal capital and the location of some very tragic history. Munich has been the playground of royalty and the common citizen alike. It has inspired artists, writers, architects, musicians, scientists, more than one madman and many visitors…

Discover Munich with Jens
Jens made our day today. He gave us such a great look into Munich--amazing perspective we wouldn't have gotten otherwise. We threw 101 questions at him and he answered each one thoroughly and thoughtfully. Our favorite parts of the tour included the Hofbrauhaus, Our Blessed Lady Cathedral, and seeing the glockenspiel in all its glory. Great tour.

Thanks to Keith for an excellent 2 1/4 hour tour of the old city. It covered so much that you wouldn't have found out on your own. Interesting and entertaining with Keith quite happy to talk "off script" and answer any questions. Good value and a very good overview for anyone in the city for a short time.

Discover Munich
Our guide Iain was a walking encyclopedia of information. Covered quite a bit of Munich's history in a short amount of time. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend to any first-time visitors to Munich.
Disappointing
We've been travelling through Europe this summer and have done several walking tours in other cities. This one was disappointing. Our guide did not seem to know that much history and we learned a lot about where to shop and Oktoberfest instead. He also discussed a lot of urban legends and stories. I found it lacking in any real substance. Might be good to have a native of the city AND country leading the tour.
Chaos on a Tour
Would have given this a lower rating, but our guide Ian was a reasonably good sport, even if not providing lots of good information. We showed up for our 10:15 tour to learn our guide had called in sick. We were offered a 10:30 tour in German (what?!). Then the 10:00 bike tour - ok let's try! With the two of us the tour group was 20 - entirely unmanageable as we tried to get the group through the many traffic lights on the tour. As a result the tour guide shortened the tour and gave no real information about the city. All we really did was cycle around the city and wait at traffic lights. Bad experience.

Fabulous!!!
Just that word does not do this tour justice. Our guide was Jova. Not only was he an amazing story teller, but he was patient (when my group forgot a meeting time) and so much fun. I really recommend this tour!
Although go pee before you get to the tour platform, then there are plenty of restrooms after the 2 hour bus ride to get to the town where the castle is!
Great day trip!
This was a great day trip and we were able to see the highlights of Salzburg. As our time was limited, it was nice to leave the navigation to someone else and experience the city without the hassles of planning it all and navigating by ourselves. That saved us time and allowed us to appreciate the city. I would recommend this trip to others who want a quick day trip to see the city.
Great day trip
Iain was a great tour guide and extremely knowledgeable.
