This was our 4th tour with Maxine and by the time this tour ended we felt like she was part of our family of 8. Our family has traveled extensively and she is one of the best guides we have ever had. She does not just recite facts about places, she tells stories about the people involved which allows history to come alive. She carries around an iPad with pictures of places and people that she breaks out when needed. We loved our time in Munich, and feel so blessed to have met Maxine.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Linda..thank you so very much for all 4 of your lovely kind and generous reviews. It was so nice to read them and it keeps me motivated! I also felt like part of your gorgeous family by end of the 4 days...it was a lot of fun with you all especially the last day in our oversized tour bus!! I seriously hope our paths may cross again somewhere! It was a real pleasure to show you around! AUFWIEDERSEHEN! Maxine

What a fun day we had in Salzburg! Maxine met us at the train station, which was very easy to find and we took a 1 1/2 hour ride to Salzburg. We learned about the history of Salzburg, sang songs from the Sound of Music, ate lunch at a fabulous restaurant (which Maxine arranged) and shopped. I highly recommend Maxine. She is great tour guide. Very flexible and has a great deal of knowledge. Importantly, she is great at making things come to life through stories instead of just reciting facts.

Date: Jul 26/18

Highlight of our trip. We were traveling with 4 teenagers and grandma/grandpa, both of which were using a wheelchair to get around Dachau given all of the walking involved (which Maxine reserved for us in advance). Maxine brought Dachau to life through stories of individuals that lived in that terrible place. Her stories allow us to truly understand the fear and bravery that existed in Dachau. I know our children will remember the stories for the rest of their lives, and I cannot thank Maxine enough.

Maxine was wonderful. We were very jet lagged, and she did a great job showing us the highlights of Munich while adding a bit of Nazi history (which really kept our teenage boys engaged). Overall, was a very good tour and I highly recommend Maxine.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jean, I am sorry to read your disappointment regarding the church in Landsberg. This town was of course not on our original plan, I just suggested to your group for lunch as I had spontaneously taken my last group there and all of your group agreed that this would be preferable to another very tourisy location. Btw; Hohenschwangau ..(the father castle), was never mentioned to me by your group as a wish to visit. I will aim to read up on the church in case I ever go there again. Regards Maxine

Maxine was a phenomenal tour guide. Salzburg opened before us as she took us through the history, links to the Sound of Music, and restaurants. She did a great job of showing us a ton of stuff, while maintaining a comfortable pace. The other thing I noted is that she isn't only a great talker, but also a great listener. On the train ride back to Munich, she provided us with excellent recommendations for the rest of our time in Bavaria.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sean Really lovely to read your feedback...thankyou so much for taking the time to write thus. I really enjoyed the day spent with you both in Salzburg and it made me very happy to hear that your father felt "recharged with life "....I was very touched to hear that. I am also very flattered that you are interested in my artworks! Its encouraging! We now have our contact details so please to me with your idea for a commission....and we can get something started!

I visited Dachau with my 12 year old son. Maxine was punctual, friendly and sensitive to Edward's age, explaining things in plain terms so he could grasp quite difficult and challenging concepts. It was a sobering tour, which Maxine brought to life with illuminating and interesting stories. On the return to Munich she helped with suggestions to make best use of a lovely spring day in this beautiful city. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thankyou very Stephen.....I very much enjoyed meeting both of you today...your son Edward is an absolutely delightful and smart young boy and it was great to meet a kid like him! Hes a rral credit to you... I hope you will look me up if you visit Munich again. Please let me know if you ended up extending your stay in Berchtesgaden...I hope you get to Zipfhäusl for lunch!!! Have a great time there! Aufwiedersehen!! Maxine

Maxine was an excellent tour guide and we would recommend her to anyone wanting to tour the Munich area. We were traveling with two tweens (12 and 14) and she was really good with them. Asking them clarifying questions and making sure they could handle and understand the context around Dachau. She was friendly and easy to communicate with (email and in person). She had great knowledge of holocaust and many stories that brought the pictures to life. Overall, a great and informative tour

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thankyou so much Joe for your very nice review. It's wonderful to read such nice, kind & thoughtful feedback. I hope the experience left an impression on the 2 teenagers. It can be a difficult place for young people. I hope you all got to the airport ok the next day (and your airport ticket situation was ok in the end! Sorry again for my error in purchasing your ticket! I hope all worked out. Yes! Certainly look me up next time you visit Munich!! Aufwiedersehen! Maxine

Maxine was an exceptional tour guide for us! She met us promptly at the rally point, was dressed in the Octoberfest Dirndl, and brought along a gingerbread heart necklace. We walked through the streets of Munich visiting and learning all about their history of beer - super interesting. We ended at the Beer and Octoberfest museum with a sampler of beers for the group. I highly recommend touring with Maxine and this tour - it was wonderful!

Excellent! Excellent! Maxine is extremely knowledgable about the Kehlsteinhaus and the area surrounding Berchtesgaden. She was able to relate to our 15-year old nephew who adored her. Not a small feat when talking about Nazi's former houses. Her connections allowed us to avoid huge lines. The day was spectacular, the scenery magnificent and the tour super informative. I would do it again in a heartbeat. She took us to areas off the beaten path too -- we loved it!! We would her 10 stars!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jim!!! What a wonderful review! Thankyou, thankyou! I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you, your lovely partner Joe and your nephew Michael. You were great company to spend 2 days with and it really makes me happy to read your feedback and to know you enjoyed the day trips so much.

Great great tour. Maxine allowed us to adapt the tour by going to the Zugspitze and Linderhof instead of Neuschwanstein -- and it was FANTASTIC. She knows a ton about the area and clearly loves what she does. Our 15- year old nephew enjoyed her insights as much as we did. You will not be disappointed in this tour. It is top-notch. 10 stars! Caution: If you love a boring tour with stale information you can read in any two-bit guidebook, and want to wait in long lines, this one is not for you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thankyou again Jim....it was a real pleasure!!!! You were all so easy to be with and lovely company. Come back! There's so much more to see.....and tell Joe I'll show him some great hiking trails!

Maxine was the most incredible tour guide! We were traveling with our children ages 12,14, and 17 and planning to do a walking city tour. She took about 10 minutes to assess our jet-lagged, overheating (hot summer day!) group and, with our approval, decided that it would be best for all of us to hop on bikes. We spent the next few hours buzzing around Munich, seeing local, off the beaten path sites and learning about Munich's amazing history. Maxine is smart, warm, funny, and flexible!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks again Lauren! so lovely to rad your wonderful feedback....it was great fun buzzing around Munich with you all...I'm very happy that you were all game for a bike ride on your first day in Munich..it definitely is the best way to see this city! it was a fun time with you all!

Maxine provided a great tour of Dachau. She arrived on time and new exactly how to get there via train and bus so we had no worries. Once at the camp she gave super detailed explanation of various key parts and events. We did our own self guided tour 20 years ago and we just scratched the surface. It was a moving and thought provoking tour. Maxine was super, my family really enjoyed her! I highly recommend her as a tour guide.

Our tour to Dachau was a great experience. Maxine, was very knowledgeable and accommodating to our family. She was very knowledgeable on the history of pre- WW2 and post WW2. Our 12 year old son learned an enormous amount about the details of the site and the impact this camp and others had on the surrounding areas pre/post war. This tour is a must do if you like history. It should be on everyone's to do list. Maxine makes a very unpleasant place, a place to respectfully learn and respect the people affec

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thankyou Teresa for your kind review, it's always appreciated. Regarding the religious memorials being "left out" of the tour. They are not included in the tour as these are for guests to visit on their own. As a guide we are required to cover the more important information..of which there is 12 years of Dachau history to cover in 3 hours which is already difficult to complete. The 'movie' in the visitors centre is an info loop and not part of the tour either.

Maxine was so nice to tour with. She was very flexible since we only had 1 day in Munich and made the most of our time! She even ran to the book store at Dachau to purchase a book for our son who missed the tour (knowing he would enjoy it) while we walked ahead to see other sites and then ran back to meet up with us. She offered this without us even knowing about the book. Couldn't have toured with a more considerate guide! Thanks Maxine

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lovely to read your feedback Cathie. Thank you very very much. It made my day!! :-)) All the best and maybe we'll meet again. Gruesse Maxine

Maxine, our guide in Munich was excellent. This was my first "tours by locals" and I was very happy with results. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and fun, as well as being on time and totally prepared. Also helpful in reworking parts of the tour for older persons. I highly recommend Maxine and tours by locals. Thanks Maxine!

We loved our tour with Maxine. We were a group of 3 adults and 3 teens and we enjoyed the day that we spent with her! We spent the first half of the day at Dachau - which Maxine does a fantastic job of describing the process that "prisoners" were brought to the camp and the severe conditions that they endured - this is an emotional tour. Following Dachau, we traveled by train back to Munich where we saw and learned so much! Maxine is very knowledgeable and it felt like spending the day with an old friend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hallo again Jonathon....thanks once again for your really lovely review. It is really very much appreciated........I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with you and your delightful girls and wife.. I hope one day you might return to Munich so I can share more with you all.. thanks and with warmest regards to all of you all!! Maxine

This is the second time Maxine has been our tour guide and as the first time she did an awesome job. She knows so much about the locations and the information that she shares makes the tours. She suggested that we dine at one of the oldest restaurants in Europe, Stiftskeller St. Peter established 803. The food was excellent and it had a unique environment. I highly recommend Maxine and when we return we will be requesting her again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hallo Ginger!! Thank you very much for your lovely feedback about the Salzburg tour. It was a real pleasure to meet you again in Munich and be your guide again! Im very happy also that you enjoyed my restaurant recommendation. I hope very much that we will meet a THIRD time in Munich !! :-) with warm regards Maxine

Maxine provided a walking tour of Munich. We ate lunch at the famous beer garden and were served a liter of local beer. The atmosphere was so fun. She is very knowledgeable about Munich's history and she pointed out many places significant to WWII history. This was timely as we had spent the morning with her at Dachau Concentration Camp. The upbeat lunch was needed. She pointed out famous churches, historical buildings, and we ended the tour viewing the performance at the Glockinspiel! Outstanding!

Maxine met us at the train station in Munich and we took the train to Dachau Concentration Camp. She was very knowledgeable and able to provide information in an efficient manner. Although the atmosphere at Dachau Concentration Camp is disturbing, due to the horrific events that occurred there, she knew how to move the tour along, providing us valuable information, and allowing us to capture the sense of the events. She is very knowledgeable on Dachau Concentration Camp history. Highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thankyou for your kind comments...it was a pleasure to guide you for the 3 tours you booked with me. Kind regards Maxine

Maxine met us at our hotel and we took a walking tour of Salzburg. She shared her knowledge of the history of the city, pointed out famous places and their significance to the city, took us to "old town" and directed us to places for shopping later. We ate at the oldest restaurant in Europe, The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was fun. She noted other places to eat. She was very pleasant and we would recommend her to others looking for a tour of Salzburg.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again for all 3 of your lovely and kind feedback. ..I hope to see you both agsin in Munich sometime! Warm regards, Maxine

Maxine is very pleasant, well-prepared and informative. We went through lots of highlights in the city in one afternoon. She also provided clear instructions to go around and visit other places on my own, which I did and found easy to follow. She even showed me a terrific local cafe and I'd enjoyed one of the most delicious cakes ever! She is a pleasure to be with, I would recommend to anyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Winnie!..so nice to hear back from you. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed your tour of Munich with me. I also enjoyed your company very much (and those cakes!)....it was a pleasure to share my favourite cafe with you.. Thank you very much for your kind feedback!all the best! Maxine

Maxine, is the best. She was very professional, accommodating and a extremely warm person. My 20 friends, who are experienced travelers are really grateful to her. She helped us with all our detours and special requests for change in program etc. She did not bring us to any Tourist traps too. I will definitely recommend her to all who wish to go to Salzburg and the Eagles Nest. Thank you Maxine for a memorable trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hallo Vincent..thank you so much for your lovely review...it was very kind of you. I really enjoyed my day out with your group and I hope I will see you again another time in Munich/Bavaria!best regards Maxine
