Munich City, Third Reich, Dachau, Salzburg, Nuremberg and Neuschwanstein and other Ludwig II Castles. A tour with Curt Milburn is like having a welcoming family friend show you around Munich. Curt's been called "The Wikipedia of History". He specializes in small group and private tours. Tours are tailor-made and Curt finds out what YOU want to see. His City Tours go beyond canned, set routes. You'll see the famous sites, architecture, learn about kings, Hitler, foods and beer. Our Third Reich Tours delve deep into more than when, but why and how the Nazis came to power and you'll see the bombed buildings of Hitler. Curt's Dachau tours are sensitive and remarkably moving and his Neuschwanstein and Castle tours are great fun. Salzburg & Nuremberg are within your reach with Big Hat Tours! Every tour is accompanied by an Apple i-Pad with hundreds of photos to put you into history.

Curt's combination of historical knowledge blended with a quick, dry humor really engaged our college students. He added little bits of unique trivia that even our more experienced travelers did not know.

We will be in Munich the week of June 6. Two adults. Interested in your tours but am not clear what your tours are. Interested in the Third Reich and WWII locations in the city and also Dachau Memorial, which I see is a separate tour. Would be interested in private or small group tour. Cost for Munich tour. (see answer for Dachau tour cost) Could you provide more detail on the various Dark History Tour offerings are in the city?
