Excellent tour with Alun - thoroughly enjoyed it.

This tour was the highlight of our visit to Munich. Alan is really interesting and knowledgeable and opened our eyes to so much that we would have otherwise missed. He even managed to keep two teenagers engaged for two whole hours which is saying something! 100% recommend this tour.

Very informative and tactfully organised tour, Alun was knowledgeable and keen to teach the tour. Bonus points for making sure everyone knew how to get back to their corresponding hotels at the end of the tour instead of leaving people in the lurch.

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 detailed!!!

I was extremely pleased with the tour today. It inspired me to purchase books about that period of history and to visit more museums.

Alun was a fantastic guide with a passion for this period of history. Loved it! Highly recommended to everyone!
