Hello! My name is Jax and I'm a professional tour guide who's lived in Munich since 2016. Over the years, I worked for two of the best tour agencies in Munich as a freelancer and in March 2021, I started my own tour company 'Heart of Munich Tours'. Over the years I've received hundreds of five-star reviews across Tripadvisor, Google, Getyourguide, Viator, Guruwalk and other platforms. My free tour is also currently the highest rated in Munich across multiple platforms! My guiding style is interactive, passionate, clear spoken, inclusive, fun and at times theatrical. I always bring my tablet on tour to share old photos and pictures to bring history to life. Please note: I do many of the tours and the rest are covered my small team of amazing guides!

Tour description

Join me for a fun and informative 2.5 hour walking tour around the wonderful old city of Munich. Along the way you will learn about the origins of the city, cool king's, local legends, Third Reich history and of course the Bavarian culture, traditions and beer!

I want you to learn but put emphasis on having a good time, so I teach history through telling engaging and fun stories. This is an interactive tour, so I will be asking a lot of questions. In my experience, the best tours are when everyone feels involved in the learning experience.

The tour includes a 15-minute break, which allows you to look inside the Hofbräuhaus and go to the toilet and get food/ drink. At the end of the tour you will get a list of great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. 

During colder months I will do my best to make sure the tour is mostly undercover, so that you are comfortable and during Summer I'll keep you in the shade.

The average group size is 10 - 30 people throughout the year depending on the season and what events are happening in the city.

Although I do most of the tours myself, I do have a small team of guides who also work for me with similar guiding styles.

Important!: The tour is in English and maximum group size per booking is 6.
Do not make multiple bookings for a larger group and if you want to bring extra people to the tour then you need to ask before the tour! Don't just bring people and expect they can join. Please have some respect for us guides and the group sizes.

It is essential that you download the Guruwalk app as this is where I will send you important updates about any changes to the tour.
