I had a great tour & experience this past weekend with Kevin. His knowledge of both Munich & Nurnberg is extensive. He customized the tour to which I saw everything I could have imagined and more. He was easy to talk to and I enjoyed both his knowledge of the local history and his conversation of current events. If your traveling in the Munich or Nurnberg area I would strongly recommend Kevin and toursbylocals! I have had many tour guides over the years but he is certainly one of the best!! A++ Thanks

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Todd. It was my pleasure to show you Nuremberg and discuss cultural affairs with you. Hope you come back to Munich soon!

This tour was the highlight of our visit to Germany! Even with the low temperatures and falling snow, we were well taken care of by Kevin throughout the day. His knowledge of Germany was impressive and we learned so much at every stop. He was happy to accommodate our unique requests and also made sure we had a table waiting when it was lunch time. He is a pro! I hope we can tour with him again during our next visit to Germany.

What an amazing day! Kevin was wonderful - the four of us were super comfortable in his Mercedes van. We started out just doing Christmas markets, then my daughter wanted to do the Sound of Music highlights in Salzburg at the last minute. Kevin immediately adapted & knew exactly what to do. I'd actually been on another Sound of Music tour years ago and Kevin far exceeded all expectations, ending us with a beautiful Christmas Market in Mondsee, where the wedding scene was filmed. He was truly great!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Brenda, thanks so much. It was an honor to be able to guide ex-Münchners for a day.

Kevin was a great guide he picked us up promptly at our hotel and was very imformative on the drive up. His knowledge of Germany and the kings was fantastic. We really enjoyed the drive up both castles were beautiful Kevin was there every step of the way. We had a great lunch and went through oberamagoff on the way home for ice cream. I would very much recommend Kevin as a superior guide. The only recommendation I would make is that we know beforehand we needed to pay for entrance to the castles.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Laura, thanks so much. It was a pleasure having your family here. I’ve noted your comment about entrance fees and will make it more clear on the tour page.

Kevin is very informative guide. We went to places that are really hidden treasures and they were wonderful. The tour is relaxing yet we went to many unique places that are full of history. Its a Sunday and we need to catch the 6pm service mass. Kevin was so wonderful and drop us right in front of the church door. Again, our deepest gratitude.

My wife and I and our three adult children engaged Kevin for two days while in Munich, Day 1 was "Munich and more" all day including Dachau, Day 2 was "Berchtesgaden" all day. He was an outstanding guide and companion for both activities. He promptly picked us up at our AirBnB, gave us back ground information and expertly guided us around all venues. At the conclusion of these long days, he dropped us off at locations of our choosing where we were able to continue to enjoy Munich. A great guide!

Kevin provided an outstanding overview of Munich, especially those locations predominately accessible by car. He tailored the activities to keep our 15 year old son entertained and touched on topics of interest to all of us. As someone who grew up in the US but has spent his entire adult life in Germany, he was also able to share some relevant cultural insights between the two worlds. We'll definitely contact Kevin during our next visit to Munich.

As a US ExPat, Kevin did an outstanding job of making the German/Munich experience relate-able to an American foursome. The tour was terrific- the unexpected visit to the BMW building was a real treat. Kevin was able to get us into central Munich in time for The Glockenspiel! It was beautiful. Our tour with Kevin was the kickoff to a Danube cruise. We learned a lot about the culture that prepared us well for the cruise day trips. Highly recommend Kevin - especially for American visitors.

Kevin definitely knows his history and way around Munich and is able to explain all things WWW2 and the relationships between past and current. Historical background seems to be his forte.Being an older couple, the pace he set was too fast to always keep up and the several phone calls irked us. Hiring a private guide to me means " private " leave the phone home ET . All said , if you can stand a quick pace , Kevin is the guide for you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Richard, I am sorry if the pace was too much for you; it would have been helpful if you had mentioned something during the tour. I do not remember the 'several' phone calls but I normally only answer the phone during a tour if there is an emergency. I do apologize.

Kevin gave us the necessary time and space to digest the surroundings and the horrors that occurred in Dachau.

Date: Dec 3/15

On a trip with my teenage daughter, we were looking to see the magic of Bavaria, and this is exactly what Kevin showed us. While on the castle tour, Kevin made sure to show us places to take photos, he was great at engaging my daughter and sharing enough history with her to keep her intrigued and then took us to a quaint little Christmas market. He also took us to one of my favorite stops - to buy a hand carved, hand painted nativity scene! Thank you Kevin!

Can't say enough about Kevin. He was extremely pleasant to deal with and accommodated a change in the schedule that made the day much more pleasant. He was informative and educated us about Munich and Daucau. We stopped mid day and had lunch at the Hofbrau House which was a treat! I have difficulty walking. He was very accommodating in making the walks not too long. Interesting we met a lady at the airport returning to the states on Sunday that had used Tours by Locals and also had a great experience.

Kevin was our guide for a customized Beer Tour. Kevin was very prompt in picking us up to begin our day. He was very knowledgeable about Munich and Bavaria as well as the breweries and beer that we were going to experience that day. I am a travel agent and it was a pleasure to get to experience this tour with the clients I was escorting. One of the couples on the tour told me this tour was the highlight of their 2-week vacation! I highly recommend Kevin and Tours with Locals.

Kevin could not have been better - part of our group had flight delays but Kevin handled the extra airport trip and still made time for our Munich tour - he knows so much and knows all the great places. He made history come to life every time we were with him.

Despite possible border issues, Kevin worked around all of that and still got us to Berchtesgaden, with a couple of scenic stops along the way. He even ordered a beautiful rainbow at the look out area. We saw things that large tours never cover - so very interesting for any WWII history buff! He also knows the best spots for lunch - he truly has the "local" inside scoop.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure having everyone in Munich for a few days!

We were able to cram in plenty in our tour thanks to Kevin,s skills there were lots we did not expect a dip into Austria and an extra old town visit on the trip back to Munich. By pre booking timed slots we were able to maximise our visit time. We are active and the tour was tailored to our level of ability I am confident that less active people would be catered in a different way. Thanks

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David, thank you for the kind words. It was a pleasure taking you and Helen and Ruth to the castles.

Kevin spent the entire day with our family, taking us to castles and out of the way places we never expected. Everything was seamless -- he prepared in advance, with all the tickets waiting for us and everything timed perfectly. Most of all, we enjoyed his company and rich knowledge of the area and local customs. Just an outstanding guide. It was a fantastic day - one we'll remember forever. Thanks, Kevin, for showing us so much -- and the beer garden you sent us to for dinner was superb!

Excellent full day tour from Munich to Salzberg, King's Lake, and other points of interest including a tour of a Salt Mine ! Kevin picked us up at our hotel and customized our day based on our requests. This was our second tour with Kevin. Everything turned out so well. He had planned out everything (even lunch at a beautiful Biergarten!) and we were so pleased with Kevin's knowledge and professionalism. You can't go wrong !

Great personal tour by a knowledgeable and professional guide. Kevin picked us up at our hotel and spent the next 10 hours traveling to the castle pointing out interesting points of interest along the way. He provided all the history of Munich and of the royal family that ruled Bavaria and led to the creation of the castle and other properties of King Ludwig II. Excellent !

Kevin was very accommodating at changing our tour schedule after our train was delayed. He also is clearly knowledgable about Munich and its history and provided several solid recommendations for Munich dining experiences. However, his unprofessional conduct during the tour made for a very poor experience for my family. Given his other positive reviews, I hope it was just a bad day for him and one that other travelers will not experience when hiring him.

This specialized tour was arranged by Kevin due to our requests. We wanted to go to the Dachau Concentration Camp and the Harley Davidson store! Kevin provided a detailed overview of Dachau's history before we entered the camp -- which was much appreciated as it helped us better understand what happened there. He was also a great sport at the Harley store. Along with some of the Munich sites, the entire tour was great! In all, I highly recommend Kevin and Bridget -- they are both superb tour guides!

What an enjoyable tour! Kevin took us to two towns on the Romantic Road where we were able to walk the cobblestone streets and take pictures of colorful, half-timbered houses. We especially liked Rothenburg where Kevin gave us an informative tour of the town with interesting historical info as well as entertaining anecdotes about its people. Afterwards we had time on our own to visit shops, see the church, and play on the city wall due to Kevin's expert tips that we followed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Sue!
