We felt that Simone was the perfect guide to lead us through the streets, churches, and markets of Munich. She was very thorough with the historical background of the city and the German monarchs. She has a delightful personality and we were very pleased with this tour.

Good walking tour of the city center / squares with the chance to taste some "gluwein " and great recommendation for dinner at a local brewery . (Lots of plazas in the Squares ..... after 3 or 4 they get a little boring ) but overall really great !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Christelle, thank you for booking my tour and your honest rating. I am so sorry to hear you found the squares boring. I guess the cold and windy day on this January afternoon did not help to make it easy to admire the city. Hope you still had a pleasant stay! Best wishes to you all, Simone

Simone made Munich come alive for my wife and me during our recent visit, and definitely increased our appreciation of its history during the remainder of our stay there. Simone is a well-informed and enthusiastic guide who bore our many questions with great poise and perseverance, and supplied us with interesting information. If we return to Munich, we definitely would ask for her services again, and recommend her highly. She is very nice to boot.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeff, thank you so much for your wonderful rating! It has been a pleasure to show you Munich in depth. It is wonderful guests like you, that bring out the best in us tour guides - thank YOU! Simone

Simone was extremely knowledgable and well organized. Simone went out of her way to be sure that we were comfortable. Both my husband and I had some mobility issues while in Munich and she adjusted her previously planned activities to accommodate us. Additionally, she was patient in helping my husband reacquire some proficiency in German. She went way beyond what was required. Our first experience with personal tour guides. Our experience was so wonderful, we will always do this in the future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your great rating! It is you, your kindness and eagerness to learn that made this and our other tours this wonderful experience. Thank you, Simone

I loved all our tours with TBL guides. Simone was knowledgeable and helpful taking us on a walking tour around the city. She even made reservations for us at a restaurant across from the glockenspiel for breakfast the next morning at a restaurant we wouldn't have ever seen but had a great view!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ann, thank you for your great rating! Glad to hear you enjoyed our tour together and the hidden café recommendation. Best wishes from Munich, Simone

Simone was fantastic. She is a walking encyclopedia of Bavarian history, landmarks, and current day Bavarian lifestyle. She is extremely cordial and totally engaged my 14 yr. old sons for a brisk 6 hour walking tour of Munich. She is also an expert on Bavarian foods and we had several treats to keep us energized. Simone even cancelled an appointment to extend our tour at our request. She seamlessly covered early history, WW 2, and current lifestyles.When we parted we felt like we were leaving a friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, a heartfelt THANK YOU for your warm words. It truly felt like showing friends my city - your sons are marvellous! I can only say thank you, I will cherish these memories, Simone

Simone took my two children and I on a walking tour of the main area of Munich. They were not as interested in the historical sights, due to the heat, but Simone was able to spark their interest with a very creative scavenger hunt. They became very interested to learn more about the buildings, the unique features and even the churches. She was able to explain in heavy detail to me when I wanted to know something and more simple terminology with them. She was excellent!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heather, thank you so much for your great review. It was a delight to be with you and your children and explore Munich through their eyes. Thank you for the time shared - they still keep the current scavenger hunt record ;) Kind regards, Simone

Simone's English is excellent and she's a great guide!Her tour included fun stories and lots of information about the history of Munich as well as daily life in Germany. She gave us wonderful suggestions for restaurants "where the locals eat" and also ideas for activities to do on our "free day". She took us through interesting backstreets and inner courtyards we never would have known existed if on our own! A terrific way to get acquainted with Munich!

Simone went out of her way to make our 3 days in Munich and Bavaria a special time. We had our 10 year old grandson with us, and she created little treasure hunts for him to keep him interested in the places we were seeing. My family came from Munich, and Simone went out of her way to help me find family places - even the cemetery where they are buried. She guides at a pace preferred by her customers, and is very flexible to meet their needs. We had a wonderful time with Simoone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Phyllis, thank you so much for your great rating. I am glad I could be a small part of your family history for a few days. Thank you for this special time. All the best, Simone

Simone gave our group of 9 a great tour of Munich. She was very helpful beforehand over email and recommended and even booked us a restaurant for after the tour. Simone was also flexible when the rain on the day decided we had one more beer in the middle and a little less tour. Got a much greater sense of the city and region than we would have done so otherwise. Overall a very good experience that I would be happy to repeat. Conor Donovan, Scotland.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donovan - thank you for your warm words! I would be happy to show you the rest of our tour on a sunnier day! Please give my regards to the groom: "Herzlichen Glückwunsch aus München!". Thank you, Simone

Simone was a fantastic guide during our Sunday afternoon in Munich. She was great about accomodating our more laid back schedule to include many beer garden spots while providing us a great history and overview of the historic city center. If you are heading to Munich, make sure to have a tour with Simone!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your warm words. It sure was fun to discuss the different beer varieties with you experts! Take care, Simone - and if you come back to Munich/Salzburg we will look at the remaining beer gardens :-)
