Tour: #29914, Private Eagles Nest Berchtesgaden Obersalzberg day tour from Munich, Munich, Bayern, Germany    
Date: Jul 9/18

Steve took my son and I on a day tour out of Munich to the Obersalzberg area. I drove our rented car following the route of the American forces as they made their way to Hitlers's Berghof, while Steve verbally piled on the history. Steve is a very personable and knowledgeable person. He directed us to many Nazi era sites ranging from military barracks, and sites of infamous Nazi luminaries homes, including the site of Hitler's Berghof. The tour was topped off by visiting the Eagle's Nest. Great tour.

Steve was a wonderful tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the Third Reich. He took us places we would have never known to go. Our day was both educational and enjoyable. We would highly recommend Steve as a guide to anyone wanting to visit Eagles Nest and the surrounding area. Thanks Steve!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Susan. I hope your trip to Nuremberg went well. Best wishes Steve

Date: Jul 13/16

We had a spectacular day, even though rain obscured any view from Eagle's Nest. The guide was fully knowledgeable, engaging, and shared with us the full story of the National Socailist movement in relationship to Berchtesgaden and all its sites. Of special intereset to visitors from the USA, he was able to describe the role of American forces in the capture of the area in 1945. He was also a gifted driver.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Robert. It was a shame about the weather but I am glad you got got a lot out our day. All the very best to you. Steve

Stephen's tour was phenomenal, we learned so much which made it super interesting. He was on time, new exactly where to drive to, so we had no worries there. He showed us and described to us so many cool facts and items of interest at Berchtesgaden, it was great. Stephen took us to a great restaurant in the heart of the country and the food was awesome. He kept us bust the whole day, which completely matched what he described. I highly recommend Stephen as a tour guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words Gregg. I enjoyed your company. All the best to you and your family. Steve

We did a tour to Eagles Nest with Stephen and had an amazing day. Steve is very knowledgable and was able to answer all our questions. Steve was able to show us sites that we would have ignored if we had done the trip alone... I would highly recommend taking this tour you will be in very safe hands !!! Thanks Steve for a trip down history lane it something we will always remember....

This was a nine hour day, five of which were driving. During this time Stephen filled us in on the Obersalzberg back story as well as answered our myriad questions about all things German. Upon our arrival we went from one site to another , mostly on our own, as these were little-known places but places of real significance nonetheless. This is Stephen's forté and why we enjoyed our day so much.

I took my nephew to Germany for his high school graduation present and did two tours with Stephen while in Munich. This was the second tour to the Eagles Nest/Berchtesgaden. I had taken this tour as part of a bus group when I was in Salzburg two years before, but wanted my nephew to see it for himself. The tour with Stephen was so much better. Stephens knowledge and enthusiasm made it well worth the money. We saw and learned so much more than with the group tour. Thanks for the great tour Stephen!

We had an excellent time on this tour, the guide Stephen was very well informed and was able to provide lots of extra information other than the already well known facts. We had a very pleasant day, and although, we were not able to get to the Eagle's Nest due to adverse weather conditions, we certainly did not feel that we missed out on anything as there were plenty of other interesting things to see. Thank you and we will certainly recommend your tours to others.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks. It was good to spend the day with you. I was really pleased the weather was so good for us and the views were good, given the long winter we have had here. Hope the rest of trip goes to plan. Cheers Steve

This was an excellent tour and Steve was a great guide. He was well organized, had the facts, looked after us and showed us things others would not have seen. We would have need a few days of research and at least three days to cover what we did in the one day, even though the pace of the day with Steve was excellent and we never felt rushed, in fact, it was a really well paced tour. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Greg

Together with the Third Reich Walking Tour we had the most valuable experience. Both tours were very well structured and the information was well tailored to our knowledge level. Stephen was an excellent tour guide with a friendly manner who answered all our questions, even the hidden ones, in this very sensitive field of history. The tours well deserve the 5 star rating.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the good review George. Glad you had a interesting time.

Steve did an excellent job with our tour. We were able to see regular tour sights and highlights and then experience sights not on standard tours. He gave details and took questions. We were able to see where Hitler's Berghof was located along with historic photos. We went to the underground bunkers at the Hotel Turken. Put on your walking shoes and head out on this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Nancy. Appreciate the cool review :)

We had a wonderful, fun time visiting the Berchtesgaden area. Even though we were still exhausted from our plane trip, we enjoyed every minute of the day. Stephen was very knowledgeable about WWII and provided us with so much more information than we would have known on our own. He even provided historical pictures of the area so we had a real perspective of what happened on each site we visited - making this a unique experience. We truly enjoyed our time with Stephen and will use him again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Pennie. I enjoyed our time together too and some of the chats we had. Best wishes Steve
