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.

This tour was outstanding. We were cycled via pedicab to sites in Munich where we would stop and get a brief history of different sites. We then went to the English Gardens to watch the sunset and see the sites there.

Our pedicab tour was the perfect way to spend an afternoon in Munich. We got great up-front views of historic sites and beautiful scenery. Our guide was very knowledgeable, easy-going, and funny.

A quick and easy way to see the major sites of Munich. Very thorough and informative.

I can only recommend it to everyone, it was great!!!
