We had planned to do the Eagles Nest on this day but due to weather Kevin changed it to off the beaten path. We were scheduled to go with him again on another day so he was able to switch tours to suit the weather. This was why I wanted to have the same guide as much as possible so he could taylor our tours by weather and as he got to know us and our interests. Even tho it rained part of the day we had an excellent time! Loved the falconry show and I think it was the favorite of our family of 6 adults.
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. Many thanks to Kevin for making our stay in Munich one of the most memorable.

We had an incredibly comfortable, safe, informative tour from Munich to Prague. Kevin is interesting and knowledgeable and took us to several places we would never have found on our own. He made us feel like we were with a friend not a guide. He was a safe driver and patient despite a long traffic delay. I would recommend him without reservation for and tour he can do and in fact my family is thinking of going back to germany but only when he is available.

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.

We could not have selected a batter guide than Kevin. He was not only an excellent translator but was able to add to our experience by sharing his expertise on the history and culture of the region. I especially appreciated that he seemed genuinely interested in our custom tour. It was a wonderful day and made all the difference in us driving through the area versus having a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Great and endless thanks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Suzie, thank you for the kind words. It was a pleasure for me to be able to help you research your roots. Come back again soon!

Kevin is up to date on history, economics, social life and everything else you would want to know about. He is a voracious reader and explains things very clearly. As far as I am concerned he is THE GUIDE to contact for Bavaria and the surrounding areas.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the kind words, Joel! It was a genuine pleasure having you and your friends here in Bavaria!
Jennifer Phlieger AnsierUnited States
Kevin created a customized tour for me and my father while we were in Munich. With interests in history and beer, we were lucky to find Kevin. We visited several places in the Bavarian countryside that we would have never found on our own. We were also able to try local cuisine and beer while learning about German history and culture. This was a 'splurge' for us and was definitely worth every penny. If we're fortunate to visit Germany again I wouldn't hesitate to contact Kevin.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jennifer, very glad you and your dad enjoyed the tour exploring some of the hidden gems near Munich. The private tour of the brewery was definitely a bonus. Thank you for the kind words and please give my regards to Texas!

Kevin did a truly outstanding job. Very knowledgeable and extremely flexible. He connected well with our entire family. We highly recommend Kevin.

Kevin was were friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and fun to accompany. We felt that a true friend was accompanying us and thus we enjoyed every single moment of the tour. He also was very passionate & flexible. It was a long tour (12 hours) but we barely felt the time because of the so many beautiful places Kevin took us to. There is a sign in the Airport that says: "From the sky to Heaven on earth. Welcome to Bavaria". I agree. Thank you Kevin for making our trip to Munich such a memorable one.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mohammad, thank you so much for the kind words. It was a pleasure spending the day with you and your wife and being able to show you some of the beautiful alpine scenery near to Munich. You are welcome back in Bavaria any time! - Kevin

Due to a customs issue with some boxes my husband had shipped before we left the US we thought this day was DOA. Thank GOODNESS for Kevin. He helped us get needed paperwork, found the right customs office, helped get the boxes to the hotel & THEN we got on our way. With the boxes safe & sound, my husband was able to thoroughly enjoy our 2nd day with Kevin. This is above & beyond a 2nd day of excellent tour guiding through back roads. Book Kevin, you will be very happy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words, Jeanmarie! It was my pleasure to be able to remove the stress from your day. I hope that Ted's seminar has been going well and I look forward to seeing you both again in the near future.

Kevin worked very hard to design two custom tours for us and he scores a 10+ on both. Our main interest was seeing the out of the way places. Kevin knows these roads like the creases in the palm of his hand. We saw monasteries, lakes, castles and even chased cows to get a great photo. When we asked "what's that" while driving a back road--more than once Kevin stopped the car, and provided an impromptu history or agriculture lesson. He's great, knowledgeable and wonderful to spend time with. Book him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Jeanmarie! It was a pleasure having you and Ted for the two days. Very nice to have travelers who want to see Bavaria in-depth, and not just the hot spots. Come back anytime!
