The man is an encyclopedia of history! He is an expert in his subject matter and he is passionate about sharing his research and knowledge. He shares the most important details as well as many significant facts that complete the total picture of what began here in Munich and continued for many years. Listening to his historical accounts as they unfolded kept us eager to hear what happened next. He surprised us with many accounts of historical events that were previously unknown to us. Awesome guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words Curt. It was a pleasure to talk to you all.

The tour through Munich with Stephen was excellent. He is extremely knowledgeable about Munich and the Third Reich. We saw many interesting sites and Stephen put everything into context for us. He brought the birth of the Nazi era to life for us in a way that surpassed our expectations. Stephen was friendly, personable, and answered every question in great detail. I strongly recommend this tour for anyone who has an interest in the early days of Hitler and the Third Reich.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Alan and Penny. The weather was good for us and it was a pleasure to show you around. All the best Steve.

Steven is a true expert in the history of the Third Reich, and can fluently discuss any aspect of the regime. He told fascinating stories about the most unassuming street corners you can imagine, and was rather funny to boot.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed our day. Thanks for the good review, I am glad you got my dry english humour. All the best to you both. Steve

It is hard to describe the emotions of the tour. Intertwined with the horror and history of the camp, Stephen showed us the town of Dachau which really added to the trip. We also were able to see the cemetery of the unknown victims which is out of the way, though definitely worth the walk.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mary. It was good spend a couple of days with you. I am please you got something out of the time we spent together. I hope you got home all OK. Best Wishes Steve.

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

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.

We spent two days with Stephen touring areas where my mother was a prisoner during WWII as well as the site of her DP camp and the camp where she was liberated from. Stephen was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and was an expert on the topic of WW II history and history of the camps and sub-camps in the Munich area. Stephen was an excellent tour guide who I would highly recommend.

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!

The first tour my nephew and I did with Stephen. It was an awesome tour and Stephen is just a great guide. We saw everything I have been reading about or watching on TV for a long time. We really learned a lot on our tour and it was all very interesting. Although it was a long tour, it was never boring and the pace was good for us. Stephen, who is the author of the books you had on our tours? I am interested in buying them and can not find them online. Thanks again for two great tours!

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

Absolutely amazing tour guide. Steve did a great job showing us Dachau and Munich. He knows the city and its heritage better than the locals. We found places that I didn't know existed. Every member of our group really appreciated his knowledge of the subject and his ability to make history really interesting. We are already planning to use Steve again when we return next year. I would gladly recommend his services to anyone!!!

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.

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.

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.

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!
