What people are saying about Bavaria

Even though the guide was in German and we knew it, we couldn't help but participate in such an engaging experience. It was very nice to see how the night guards behaved, our guide was dressed exactly as then, very good at getting the boys to participate even if not German. Fantastic! Thank you .

Marianne was great and modified the tour so we focused on what we wanted. She helped us figure out how to see additional sights on Berlin, including taking us on the Metro to the art museum and coordinating a different pick up location with the driver.

Ozzie was amazing - energetic, fun, relevant - totally made Munich come alive for our group. He listened to our interests and really tailored the tour on our input.

Good starting location. Not much info around at the hotels.

We had a wonderful day. I highly recommend this trip.
