Amy P.RHODE ISLAND, United States
This was our first walking/food tour and it was great, despite some light rain early on. I was able to push my husband's wheelchair around since our Munich hotel was centrally-located. Simone met us at our hotel and from there we went around the area to food shops, the food market, and a restaurant. We even stopped by the Church of the Holy Spirit. We had fun tasting different foods that she had for us to try. I was able to do last-minute shopping for local stuff like chocolates and coffee. Thanks! :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Amy for your warm rating! It was lovely to meet you and show you and Augustin around! What a special tour :) All the best to you, Simone

Despite it being an awfully cold day, Simone made our first visit to Munich a very enjoyable one. She focused weaved the fascinating cultural and political history of the city as she brought us through some of the food highlights on this walking tour. Simone's warm, friendly personality and gentle humour really made this a lovely introduction to the city. We would happily get in touch with her again if we return to Munich.

My husband and I have only begun taking 'tasting' tours and we love them! Simone met us promptly and began our tour with a German pastry, Schmalznudel. Our walking tour was perfect. It included historical facts of the old town of Munich and a sampling of local delicacies. It was a beautiful day for a walk and we so enjoyed time spent with Simone!

Stephen EisenbergUnited States
Simone was wonderful. She took my family on a 3 hour tour mixing local delicacies with interesting historical information. Simone was pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed hearing about how she lived in Munich and learning about Munich and Bavaria's history. I use guides often, love history and really enjoy having what I see explained to me. It makes the sightseeing so much more complete and Simone performed that task brilliantly I highly recommend her as a guide

Simone was an exceptional guide! She met us at the appointed time, was well prepared and took the time to not only show us some of the incredible food "neighborhoods" in downtown Munich but to also uncover some of the incredible history that this part of Europe and Germany have seen over the past several centuries. Her approach was fun, exciting, personal and full of information and ideas that were helpful during the rest of our trip. I would wholeheartedly recommend Simone for this tour.

Simone was a GREAT guide.....she greeted us at our hotel with a German pastry to start the tour. It was our first time in Munich and the combination of history of the city interwoven with the tasting different foods and beers was a great way to start our visit in Germany. The best part of the tour was buying meats, cheeses and a pretzel from the local outdoor market and then sitting in the beirgarten with a cold beer and great conversation. We highly recommend Simone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael, thank you so much for your great rating and the wonderful time shared during our tour! It's guests like you that make my job GREAT! Thank you and all the best, Simone

She also gave us dinner recommendations. Highly recommend her services.

Simone interwove bits of history and information during stops at city attractions with the many wonderful tastes of German food while we walked through Munich.Sweet & savory treats and beer were all included as we learned many facts about city sites we would not have gleaned on our own or from guide books. Simone is a fun person to be with and carefully planned our tours so that we got a lot out of our time with her. She provided great value for the price and provided a fun and informative experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you once more for this special time spent with you and your family. It was great to share all these stories with you and I hope to see you again one day. Take good care, Simone
