What a fabulous tour! Our night watchman was enthusiastic, playful, and a great storyteller, and he has clearly done careful research into the history of Munich. I also very much appreciated his giving the tour in English to make sure that all of us could understand. (His English is excellent.) I would most definitely take a tour with this particular guide again.

Paul was amazing. Great knowledge of Residenz and people that lived there. Good information on damage during WWII, removal of art and restoration of the structure. Since he is also a studied artist he could relate the art we saw to history and historical events. I will request Paul Riedel for future Bayern trips……“.Hands down“

Really wonderful evening with the Night Watchman on his rounds locking down the wall in Munich. Enjoyed learning about mid-evil Munich and seeing the sights. Wolfgang is a fantastic guide and really knows the history, plus he is very entertaining and enthusiastic about the tour. Highly recommend the tour.

Falke was an excellent guide. we enjoyed his company while he acclimated us to beautiful Germany. He answered all our questions and delivered a beautiful tour!

Wonderful!!! Excellent and informative and entertaining!
