I have been wanting to do this tour for several years and finally had enough days in Munich to schedule the walking tour. It was all that I hoped it would be. Our tour guide was Sabri. He did an outstanding job and took his time answering all of our questions and enlightening our group on the rise of Adolph Hitler and the Third Reich. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody who visits Munich.
Excellent tour given by an enthusiastic, knowledgeable guide to a small group of three in late March, 2015.
It turned out that I was the only person that signed up for this tour. Not sure why; maybe it was the weather. I had Nicola for this trip and she was amazing! She really took me back in time to understand the rise of Hitler and Third Reich. Since it was just me I asked all sorts of random questions about Munich, Bavaria and Hitler and she was able to answer them all. Definitely a wonderful and informative tour!
The guide met us at the time and place arranged. He was full of information and energy about the subject! He even had a picture album with historical pictures of the sites we visited. He explained in detail the history of the rise of Hitler from his arrival in Munich to his leadership of the Third Reich. His approach to the subject was even handed and informative. This tour is a must to appreciate the surviving WWII historical sites in Munich. I would highly recommend this tour!
Levi did an excellent job articulating the rise of Hitler in Munich. Very knowledgable and highly recommended.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and as well as discussing the well known facts of the rise of nazism she had lots of interesting stories about other individuals as well. It was an easy pace and very interesting
I highly recommend this walk into Munich's darker history. A very knowledgeable guide who brings history to life.
Do this tour first before you go to see the sights! Great subject knowledge of Munich and great delivery. Expect to do a fair bit of walking.
This tour was the highlight of my trip to Germany. If your really into Third Reich history or simply curious about what happened in Munich in the 1920's-1940's then this tour is it. Our guide was incredibly knowledgable and very generous with his time. A must.
Great insight into how Hitler and the National Socialists managed to engineer their rise to the top and their subsequent invasion and expansion through Europe. Gave me a better understanding of the 'the other side' of the story. Achim was a really informative and friendly tour guide.
Very very informative, and Steve the guide was hugely knowledgeable. Very cool guy.
Probably the best tour we have ever taken! The guide was so personable and informative. He actually asked if it was okay to go longer, about 45 minutes, because he had more information to share. Do NOT miss this tour!
Great tour. Our guide was VERY knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommend this tour. Quite a bit of walking, but at a pace that most folks should be OK with. Great way to get out and see Munich. Made history come alive. Really happy we decided on this tour.
I can not rate this tour highly enough.
Our guide Levi, made the experience enthralling - this man knows his stuff! The questions that came his way were answered with authority. If Hitler and the Third Reich is of interest to you, then book this tour - I'm sure your guide will be as good as ours was
Our Scottish guide Keith (?) guided us around Munich for 2-1/2 hours to highlight important Nazi sites. He was very thorough and had a good sense of humor. 85% of Munich was destroyed during WWII, but many Nazi sites were left intact. So much of what we saw was re-built including Marienplatz where the tour started after travelling from the Munich Bahnhof. Munich was starting to get crazy because they were getting ready for Octoberfest and a lot of the activities had already started. We arranged the tour through Viator. Two of the many interesting sites were the Hofbrauhaus and Feldherrnhalle/Dodger’s Ally. The first floor of the Hofbrauhaus where Hitler started his rise to power and gave many speeches was not damaged. On the ceiling you can still see the swastikas blended into the painting and not painted over after the war. The Feldherrnhalle is where the Nazis made a memorial to the failed 1923 overthrow of the government and dodger’s ally where many Germans tried to avoid passing by the memorial which required them to salute it or be punished. Many were punished by not saluting as they passed and by trying to avoid the memorial. Felderrnhalle and Odeonplatz is the site of many Nazi party speeches and gatherings. This tour fills in a lot of information about the beginnings of the Nazi party.
I would thoroughly recommend this tour which was very informative and interesting. You need to be fit though as there is a lot of walking involved.
Nicole was a great tour guide and explained much of the history of those buildings and events that shaped early Nazi Germany for us. She also took the time to allow us short rest periods between sites, which was much appreciated since my wife and I do not normally walk this much ! Excellent tour and we would highly recommend it.
