Matt has been an incredible guide! Very nice to the group, he made it a very pleasant tour on the tour. He is very interested in World War II, which makes him fascinating to listen to, very predisposed to asking questions that he answered with kindness. I recommend it if you want to go to the Dachau concentration camp, it's worth it. Thanks Matt :)

We loved our tour guide! He was sincere, experienced and very knowledgeable. I felt as I was taken decades back and was able to grasp an even deeper understanding of the history of Germany.

A must-have experience in Munich. Eric was very friendly and shared a lot of historical information. We even had dinner together as a group after the tour. :)

Our guide was very knowledgeable and kind. We really enjoyed this more personal experience and would do it again.

The guide was perfect. He knew a lot about the place and was able to answer all our questions
