We recently took a tour around Munich with Stefan, my husband and I and our 4 adult children. To say it was outstanding is an understatement. Stefan started our tour by sitting down with us and providing some history so when we were actually visiting the sites with him everything clicked into place and we were able to relate to everything he had told us. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip and our kids are still talking about it. I highly recommend Stefan as a tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Belinda, it was a great pleasure to be your guide, and I hope to see you again on one of your next trips. Thanks a lot for your positive feedback. Best regards, Stefan
Highly intelligent and equally communicative about history, local sights, and other topics of interest. I will return to Munich, and Stefan will be my #1 choice.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Doug, it was a real joy to be your guide! Have a great train ride to Italy, and see you on your next trip to Munich. Kind regards, Stefan
Amy MattinglyUnited States
Stefan was a wonderful and informative guide. He provided us with an excellent historical background of the events leading up to WWII, the political and social atmosphere in Germany, and this history of Dachau. My entire family appreciated all he did to organize and educate us during our visit. We highly recommend him as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amy, I send you my best wishes for 2020, and I thank you very much for your kind feedback. Enjoy the concert tomorrow! Best regards, Stefan

Stefan was a wonderful guide! He was very informative, flexible, and added appropriate humor to our conversation. He was also very good at keeping 6 very jet-lagged people engaged. Would highly recommend him to anyone!!

We enjoyed our tour with Stefan immensely. It met our expectations in providing a history of Munich and Bavaria. Stefan was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and has an excellent feel for the area. We saw a variety of sites in the Old Town and had all our questions answered in detail. We would recommend this tour highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Matt, many thanks for your kind review, and have a wonderful Christmas vacation and a happy new year! Best, Stefan

Ron SteinbachUnited States
Stefan provided an impressive tour of Dachau. We hade been with him all morning on his tour of Munich, stopped for lunch and he took us up to Dachau on public transportation--probably the most efficient way to go. He took us on a quick walk through of the site then gave us time to explore the exhibits in more depth. we ended the day with a walk by the memorials built after the war. A really sobering experience that everyone she see once in their life. Stefan provided the right perspective for the site
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ron, thank you very much for your great review! I enjoyed spending the day with Rachel and you and I wish you a wonderful Christmas season! Kind regards from Bavaria, Stefan
Ron SteinbachUnited States
Stefan gave us a great tour of Munich. He started off with a bit of a discussion on Munich's history, including its role in the 20th century. He highlighted various sites with key events that occurred at those places. He also took us to a local food market where we got local cuisine for lunch. We were with Stefan for the entire day--we followed this tour with his guided tour of the Dachau Memorial. He went out of his way to make us feel comfortable. We would look for him again when we come back.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ron, it was a pleasure to guide you through the day. See you soon on your next trip to Munich! Best, Stefan

Deb YolinUnited States
Stefan was an amazing tour guide. I can't imagine a more informative tour or kind person. Was with my ten year old and Stefan was able to relate (knew more about FC Bayern/ champions and premier league football than anyone we know). He knew where to find the biggest pretzel we have ever seen, take a bathroom break and get a hot chocolate/coffee. Thank you Stefan! We hope to see you again in April if Gabe is selected to train again with FC Bayern! Will be in touch
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Deb, it was awesome to meet you and Gabe! I hope he will be selected again, and you both come back to Munich soon! Best regards, Stefan
Anna SimpsonUnited Kingdom
Stefan made our first trip to Munich and to my family, the first trip to Germany, really memorable.His extensive knowledge of history, culture and architecture was impressive.His sense of humour really added to the entire experience.He went above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable.Like, borrowing us some cash (since we didn't have any) to try some of the authentic dishes on the market where they don't take cards.Definitely recommend hiring Stefan if you wish to have interesting and memorable tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anna, thanks a lot for your positive feedback! I hope you all enjoyed your first trip to Germany! See you soon! Best regards, Stefan
Kay MorrillUnited States
Stephan was delightful. He gave us a great tour, hitting the highlights of Munich and giving us information. He was very considerate of our traveler who had a medical condition and needed to sit at times instead of standing still to listen to historical information. He knew exactly where to find the best cup of coffee. I would recommend him to anyone without reservation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kay, many thanks for your kind review! I very much enjoyed your company and I hope you all come back to Germany next year! Kind regards, Stefan
Today we took the Dachau tour with Stephan and couldn't be more satisfied. He is a very nice young man and extremely knowledgeable about Hitler and Dachau. We learned so much. We met him in Marienplatz and took the train/ bus to Dachau. He made the trip so easy. I highly recommend booking this tour with Stephan.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kimberly, thanks a lot for your review! I highly enjoyed being your guide, and I wish you a great last day in Munich and a good flight tomorrow! Best regards, Stefan
Sheila WoodwardUnited States
We had a terrific tour with Stefan. He is very knowledgable on the subject and he is an entertaining tour guide. Obviously, Dachau is not a lot of fun, but he took a difficult subject and broke it into easily understandable time periods. He kept a nice pace on the tour, and allowed us several options. We would do another tour with Stefan again without question.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sheila, it was a great pleasure to guide you through the Dachau memorial site! And I hope you found the beer garden afterwards! Kind regards, Stefan
Dara RedlerUnited States
Stefan was a wonderful knowledgeable guide for our Munich old city tour. He showed up at our hotel on time, took our interests into account and modified the tour on the fly, and answered all our questions. We so appreciated the opportunity to learn from his wealth of knowledge of history, and experience the old city of Munich. Would definitely recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dara, it was a great pleasure to be your guide, and I hope you had a wonderful trip! Safe travels! Best regards from Munich, Stefan

Stefan was fantastic! Extremely knowledgeable of Munich's history and he took us to great locations throughout the city, and showed us places to eat and drink and explore on our own time. Would highly recommend his 3 hour walking tour as a great introduction to the city upon your arrival.

Jordan HomaUnited States
Stefan was an excellent tour guide who was very knowledgeable about our Tour of Dachau, his educational background in History was very apparent and the information that was given to us was above and beyond what the museum/memorial provided. Stefan has a great sense of humor and made the tour a 10/10. We will use Stefan again the next time we are visiting Munich. Thank you, Stefan! - Jordan, Matt, Rob, Jess and Dallas
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jordan, kind regards to Dallas! It was a great pleasure to be your guide, and I hope to see you all again in the near future! Best, Stefan
