Remarkable few hours in Munich with Simone seeing the city sites and hearing about the history of this magnificent city. We even had time for a beer in a traditional Beer Hall. Simone took us back to the airport after the tour to catch our flight to Singapore. If you have a lengthy stopover in Munich, try a walking tour ... it is brilliant.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jennifer, thank you so much for choosing my tour and your great rating! What a pleasure to have met you and your husband. Even though we only had some limited time, it was really fun to give you a bit of Bavarian "flavor". Hope you'll be coming back for more :) All the best, Simone

We had a great time in Munich. It was misty and then rainy at the end, but when on a few hours of layover it happens. We still had a GREAT time with Simone, she showed us around downtown and found some great Chocolate. Love the local one that had the purple wrapping on it:) She took us to a local place to eat lunch and it was really nice. We had a great time and Simone was very knowledge and we learned a lot about Munich! Thank you for the memories!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Barbara, thank you for choosing my tour and your warm comment! It's wonderful to hear you liked our tour despite the weather - chocolate and Kaesespaetzle always help ;) Wishing you all the best, kind regards, Simone

Simone was on time and seemed eager/pleasant. However,as walking tour progressed thru Munich she was condescending and snarky at all the high priced offerings in the market and local shops consistently. when we passed the local bakery with 5 delish items in window, and asked if i could go in, she said oh yes this is the famous bakery and one of a kind munich items. so why didnt you point that out and see if we wanted to taste? not intuitive to clients and just a history lesson. she is not private guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am surprised as throughout the day you all seemed to have a very good time. I don't recall exactly what happened at the bakery - we might have been engaged in an eager conversation or since you are into healthy eating I might not have stressed it, sorry if I did not get it right. I do mention the (high) prices but at the same time I point out the beauty, quality and specialities. I am very sorry I could not satisfy you as it is my utmost desire to deliver 100% wonderful tour experiences.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear about Jame´s experience as Simone has very good ratings and is very professional. We are sure she will consider these comments as a learning opportunity.

Simone was a joy to spend the day with. She related to us as an extension of our family. Great knowledge of the evolving monarchy as well as the early political influence of the Forces that stoked both World Wars. She had many 'local' stories to season the various buildings and areas we toured. Great recommendation for a true Bavarian lunch, in fact, I believe it was the oldest family owned bierhaus in the city. Very worth while.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, thank you so much for your great rating and a wonderful day spent with you. It was a real pleasure to show your family my city. Thank you and take good care, greetings from Munich, Simone
Simone is amazing I highly recommend her skills as a tour guide. She was with our student group of 27 for 4 days and did a fantastic job! She is organized, friendly, goes above and beyond the call of duty, relates well to youth, Simone never wavered and was also there for us at every moment to assist with every detail, big & small. Simone's knowledge of Munich was incredible. If you are lucky enough to book Simone for a tour, I guarantee that you will have a wonderful experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Father Bill, thank you so much for your kind words and the wonderful time spent together. What an experience - I'll always cherish these special moments we shared in Munich, Dachau and Neuschwanstein. Greetings to all of you in Monaco, Simone
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry that the city marathon criss-crossing through the centre made it a bit difficult to wander around freely and that the service in the beer hall was really bad that day, my apologies!

Before I start my review, a most heartfelt thanks to Simone for such an excellent tour. Our full day with her in Munich was not only very comprehensive but most enjoyable. Her knowledge of the town and her keen awareness of a group's ability and needs is superb. In addition, she has a wonderful disposition and personality which created a great group chemistry. If she were to come to my region in the States, she would be most welcomed to stay with us! We won't use any other guide when we return to Munich.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Derrick, thank you for the wonderful review and a very special day together. It was a pleasure to show you Munich in depth. I look forward to seeing you all again one day - either in Munich or California! Best wishes, Simone

Simone is an excellent tour guide! Her English is perfect! She picked us up promptly and even provided umbrellas for the rain. She was very responsive in booking our tour and customizing spots we wanted to go to. This was perfect tour for us during our layover in Munich. She is very knowledgeable about her beautiful city and very organized while showing us around. Thank you again Simone for a wonderful tour !!
I did a one day customized photo shoot tour of Munich. Simone prepared the tour very well, so that the tour was a real success. Thanks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Johan, thank you for choosing my tour and your kind comment. It was a pleasure to show you the modern side of Munich. I hope your pictures will turn out great! Simone

We enjoyed the tour of Munich very much! Simone took us to many great locations. Simone gave us historic information about every attraction that we saw. She took us to a variety of places including a palace, a Gothic and traditional church, old and new government buildings, an opera house(which has burned down three times), and many other places. We will be booking another tour with Simone if we are ever back in Munich, and highly suggest her to anyone with a layover.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind comment! Great to hear you liked my tour! I hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving. Looking forward to showing you the other castles the next time... Simone

Simone was the perfect guide for us. She answered all our needs about the city. She was knowing the city in depth. She was interesting in history, architecture, literature, arts, etc. She was also flexible for specific needs. We had a terrific time with her and we recommended her strongly. André and Marcelle.
