This tour was great. This was my second time visiting Munich but my official tour in the city. Our tour guide, Keith, was very knowledgeable and was able to give us a lot of background information and history as well as describing the individual landmarks we were seeing which helped us have more of a big picture about the city of Munich overall. Definitely something good to do while visiting Munich!
Excellent guide, very knowledgable and passionate about the topic. Highly recommended.
The tour was great! Our your guide,Roland, was extremely knowledgable and told the story of the third reich in a captivating way. We saw many sites that I otherwise wouldn't have know were of any importance in German history, which was extremely neat.
Jeff was super, the tour was really informative and fun and I had a blast. If you have time and interest, you should go on this tour!
The weather must have been waiting for us to start the tour at 3 pm because that is when the rain came down. However, the tour guide was entertaining enough to prevent me from wanting to not complete the tour by going into a cosy cafe or beer hall. I liked his jokes, especially the cat joke about 'Mein fur herr'. I looked it up on the Internet and discovered that there in fact a website devoted to fans of cats that resemble Hitler and one can submit a photo of your Hitler cat to this website and by Kitler type things like a Kitler T-shirt and bag. It was good that the guide made jokes or else the tour would have been too serious and one needs to be entertained when on holiday. The subject of Hitler is rather sensitive so it is a difficult tour perhaps to take tourists on and I think that the guide did a good job and held out well in the rain. He had a loud voice so he was easy to hear. He appeared to be really interested in the subject of Hitler, Nazis, and Munich during the bombing raids - was interesting to know that the Virgin Mary, the New Town House and the towers of the Frauenkirche were used as markers during the RAF and US Air Force bombing raids. I later learnt from reading about Munich that the Virgin Mary is the patroness of Munich. That is why she appears in several places in the town centre. I noticed her on the walls of a few buildings while during this walking tour. Perhaps the tour guide should mention this fact. I told my two landlords I stayed with during my time in Munich about the Htiler tour. I showed them the photographs I took of the plaques that are fixed to the one wall in the arch way of the New Town House leading off Marieplatz. One of them translated for me what the plaques said. The guide did not translate them both for us. He spoke about the one that is all about the destruction in Munich by the US Streitkrafte. The other one which he did not mention is about the mass migration of the people caused by WWII.

Chris was magnificent !!! His Knowledge was impeccable !!! Must request Chris as guide!!!! The tour was fantastic ..
Fantastic tour with Keith as the guide. I received a true education on the factors involved in the Nazis coming to power and why the majority of people succumbed with limited resistance. This tour was more informative than what I gained in the Nazi Documentation Center earlier in the day in Nurnberg
The tour was excellent! The tour guide was very knowledgable and spoke very clearly throughout the tour. we had bad luck with the rain but we went on the tour and had a good time anyway. If anyone is interested in knowing a little bit of history, this is the right tour to take!
Great walking tour, learned a lot about Hitler and that dark period of history. Our guide was excellent
Levi was a great tour guide. He took his time to answer all of the questions, and provided a great experience. It was very apparent that he was well studied in the subject, and was able to pass that off in his tour. My wife was very hesitant due to the subject matter, but she was very happy and grateful to have gone on the walking tour. It was such a great way to see Munich. Highly recommended!
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.
