This is a very nice tour of a historically significant building and area which also has amazingly beautiful scenery. The drive from Munich and back is comfortable and efficient. It goes even faster with the information provided by the guide. On my tour, we were lucky enough to have Elizabeth as our guide and Martin as our driver. The tour was interesting with a good amount of free time to enjoy the Eagle's Nest and mountain area paths on your own for a while and had some good background on the area and the construction of the site. Unfortunately, the documentation center was not open and access to the bunker system was not available during my visit.

This isca must see if you're visiting munich. Elisabeth was our guide and she had great stories and history and interesting tidbits to share. The drive is just beautiful and our driver was also excellent. I would do this again but doubt I'd ever come back to Munich. 5 stars for this tour

Everything was fine except we didn't have a good weather. One suggestion we went first to eagle nest which was very cloudy and we didn'table to see anything.. By the time we return it started to clear. We didn"t feel like wasted the money still it is worth. If we go little later it would have been perfect. But we went to the town after. If we go first to the town then to the Eagle nest it would have been perfect. That was guide 's call and judgement. Our guide Ursula was very enthusiastic and gave us lot of information and history which we learned a lot.
