We weren’t sure what to expect, but we were very pleased and impressed. After meeting him just off the Marienplatz at Peter’s Church he started with the early history of Munich and we watched the Glockenspiel chime then went on a tour of the royal palace buildings. He catered the tour for our needs and since our hotel was close to the English garden we finished the tour in the garden and he dropped us at our hotel. He also covered a brief history or the rise of Adolph Hitler and showed us some of the sites used by the Nazi party. It rained for part of our tour and we stayed warm and dry under a plastic cover and blanket. If you are spending a short time in Munich and want primer on the history of the ruling dynasty in Bavaria, this is the tour for you. We highly recommend it.

Alun was amazing! One of the best and most informative tours we’ve done. So interesting to learn about a city from a very unique perspective.

Very pleasant and interesting tour. The information about the technology of the APP was confusing. Don't look at it on the way

The night watchman imparted knowledge and stories with a lot of esprit.
