Mat is extremely well informed, very congenial and pleasant. He showed us many historical photographs to complement the physical sights we toured. We learned a great deal. He also gave us a lesson on the underground which was really appreciated. We have no reservation in highly recommending him. Jill C.

Mat did an outstanding job for our tour to Dachau Concentration Camp. He was very friendly and knowledgable about the history of Dachau. He was very open to questions. I would highly recommend Mat as a tour guide.

Mat was outstanding. He was prepared and knowledgeable. What made him exceptional was his sensitivity to the subject matter and ability to give historical perspective. He was pleasant to be with and willingly added additional information and guidance. Thank you Mat!

We booked a private Dachau tour with Mat and it was an excellent experience. His knowledge of the history and context of that dark period of history provided more depth and meaning to the tour and seeded some interesting discussions. His easy going demeanor also helped us feel comfortable and at ease right right away. Great tour, great guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words Joseph, It was a pleasure meeting you and your wonderful family, safe travels!

First of all, when considering a tour of this type, a private guide is essential. Dachau is huge, daunting, emotional and every question leads to another. Mat was exemplary. 1) He was very flexible with our somewhat complicated travel restrictions. 2) He is an encyclopedia of knowledge and took time to contextualize all historical complexities. 3) He was patient, answering any question we had and indulging all our special requests. 4) He is passionate and compassionate, making the tour extra special. A+++

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tony, Thanks for the booking, it was great to meet you and Barrie, let me know when you've edited any articles and hopefully see you again in the future.

Mat was an excellent guide through the city of Munich. We love these types of personalized tours as we get so much additional information that we would not have learned on our own or on a larger group tour. Mat was both very knowledgeable and personal. I feel like we learned so much but also laughed and really enjoyed ourselves. I would certainly recommend Mat as a tour guide for others and would go on another tour with him if I am in Munich again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words Emily, it was wonderful to meet the three of you!

Dachau is a tough place to visit. Mat takes this tour and honors the victims memories with the utmost respect and seriousness it deserves. My 3 teens were engaged and we all learned so much from him. He was flexible with the time of the tour, courteous and respectful. We couldn't have picked a better guide. thanks Mat!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the positive response, was great to meet you and the family, safe travels!

I've been on 20+ tours and Matt is in a tie for best guide. Our Dacau tour was sobering and enlightening. Matt explained the history of all the camps and now Daucau was the the model for all the others. Matt has a subtle sense of humor..really good listener..our back and forth really allowed me to learn the essence of Daucau. Matt is an experienced traveler and can put himself in your shoes (rather than just recite a script), If you're unsure if you want to experience Daucau.allow Matt to show you

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Walter, Thanks for your positive feedback, It was a pleasure to have met you!

Mat gave us an excellent tour and we left with a much greater appreciation of Hitler's rise as well as seeing the key places in Munich where many of the actual events took place. The tour was quite well organized. As a British person who has lived in Germany for almost ten years, we really appreciated Mat's perspective (and his excellent grasp of English). He obviously has a passion for the topic, which we appreciated. We would very strongly recommend Mat for this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Nice to have spent time with you three! Thanks for the review, safe travels!

Mat is terrific! We actually booked him for two days - day 1 a late afternoon tour of Munich; day 2 a half day in Dachau at Concentration Camp Memorial. Matt is British, but is married to a Bavarian wife and has done Munich tours for a number of years. He is extremely knowledgeable (especially on Third Reich), very engaging, energetic, and has a great sense of humor. We would highly recommend him to anybody and in fact are are referring him to friends from home when they visit Munich. Brad G

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Brad, It was wonderful to spend 2 days with such a charming couple! See you next year!
