Owner description: 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.

As a Travel Advisor, I am always in search of a guide or docent who can make my experience come alive. Curt is that person for Munich and the area around. He is passionate about the experiences he shares with you and makes history come alive. For us, we had him for the entire day and he was both flexible and attuned to our interests and needs. If the rating system was 10 stars, he would get them from us. My husband had some mobility issues and Curt was sensitive to this so that we revised the day to visit Dachau first and then Third Reich sites back in Munich. I wish we had more days in Munich so that we might have been able to take more of his tours! Thank you again Curt for a day that turned out to be a highlight in our trip!

Curt is a wonderful tour guide! We booked a private tour of Dachau, and Curt made it an easy and pleasant experience. We first started off with a historical walking tour about the Third Reich, which he had much knowledge to share. After the walking tour, we had a nice and enjoyable lunch, which he spent the time getting to know more about us. Then, we took the final leg of our tour to Dachau, and Curt made sure to take care of everything, as far as getting us there. Once we arrived, he shared his knowledge about Dachau’s history and gave us the opportunity to observe and take in various parts of the place on our own. We definitely highly recommend Curt, because he is not only very informative, he also has a wonderful sense of humor! Thank you, Curt, for giving us a great day!!!

My family took two of Curt's private tours - Third Reich and Dachau. Curt was excellent and provided great insights about the historical sites we visited. Not only do you get his insights but you don't have to worry about the logistics of getting from place to place, Curt takes care of it and you can just take it all in and not have to worry about how to get to the next stop. We took the private tour which gave us full access to discuss things with Curt and made it easy to hear what he was saying as compared to group with many participants. Thanks Curt for a great visit, come to Indiana sometime and I will grill you some corn on the cob.

We took the Munich walking tour with Curt and we had a blast. Curt is as funny as he is knowlageable. He can talk about history, food, art with the same passion. He taylors the tour to your preferences making it that much more enjoyable. We highly recommend him.

Curt is an excellent tour guide. I arranged a private tour of Dachau. He met me at a cafe and escorted me on the train, all the while providing a background and history. Curt makes the time fly with information about the Third Reich, but he doesn't inundate you with information. He is very personable, engaging and informative. I highly recommend him for anyone needing a tour guide in Munich.
