Traveler Tips

It does involve a good bit of walking at a brisk pace so be prepared for that.
Please know there is not a stop for a toilet until the very end.
An action packed few hours, this is a great tour to see some of the sites of Munich by foot, and hear some of the history.

Amazing experience
AnaMaria_M, Sep 2023
Josh is amazing. The tour was very interactive and he took the time with us. He answered all our questions and was very careful regarding our safety. Totally recommend Josh.
Highly recommend
Megan_H, Sep 2023
Very informative. Beautiful walk. Eric was so knowledgeable and an excellent story teller. Tour group size was small and easy to hear all of the details. Well worth the money and a few hours of your time in Munich.
Offensive, learnt little.
Rowena_G, Sep 2023
I would like a refund please. The guide started by saying he wasn’t going to talk as much as he did with previous tours and then proceeded to befriend other American men and make crude jokes about historical figures being urged to ‘get themselves a German wife’. It was gross. I left after 10 minutes as was learning nothing and it was just offensive.
Heavy tour with an outstanding guide
Claire_C, Sep 2023
Josh was absolutely incredible. Huge doubt of knowledge and highly respectful of the subject matter. I lived in Germany for three years and learned more on his tour than during that entire time. We were very moved by his passion and kindness. Protect your democracy!
Definitely worth your time
Josef_T, Sep 2023
Our tour guide Jake was very knowledgeable and knew how to break the ice over such sensitive subject matter. Engaging experience and definitely worth it for me and my friends who took part. Would highly recommend as part of anyone’s trip to München.
Pete_J, Sep 2023
My guide was knowledgeable. The tour was interesting. The downside was that she moved so quickly that it was at times hard to keep up. By that I mean it’s crowded in the city now because of Octoberfest. She would hurry along and people at times were left not seeing here, but just trying to watch for the other tour members so the y knew where to go. If she simply realized it’s really crowded and it’s easy to get separated, I would have enjoyed it more.
Incredible history lesson

Serious topic but a great experience
Stephanie_J, Sep 2023
Learned so much in this tour - I was texting my friends back home about it. Not necessarily a tour to get a lay of the land of the city but was a good way to learn about the role Munich played in the rise of Nazism. This was a very fast paced walking tour to hit all of the spots. Even with the brisk pace, our guide, Joshua, would wait until we were all in each location before speaking which I appreciated. Really good storytelling with visuals as well. Would recommend if you're interested in history.
Wonderful historical tour
Amanda_H, Sep 2023
This tour was wonderful - Josh was an excellent tour guide and provided an optional extra few stops to provide additional context. Would recommend this tour for anyone looking to have an excellent educational experience.

Brenda_J, Sep 2023
Josh was the best tour guide! My entire group was beyond moved on how Josh passed along the history of what transpired during this time in Germany. At times, tears were in our eyes and we came away with a much better understanding of this time in history. Thanks to Josh, all of us are wanting to learn more about the true history of this time. To Josh specifically- from the bottom of our hearts we thank you for the history lesson and you personally changed everyone of us!
Response from Host, Sep 2023

Must do tour in Munich
Ella_P, Sep 2023
This is a must do your while you’re in Munich. Scott had so much knowledge to share about Munich’s history across the years of the third reich a lot of which I didn’t know. The tour was highly engaging and went to a number of spots you wouldn’t know to go to. It was fantastic
Great food!
Jennifer_Z, Sep 2023
