Must do tour in Munich!
Dec 2021 • Solo
Ozzie brought Munich/Bavaria to life in a way you can never understand by just walking around. First of all, greatly appreciated he did not cancel even tho I was the only booking. You will need to ‘put your thinking cap on’ if you are going to integrate all the info he gives you. But came away with my greater understating than I had before, and got a chance to witness the warmth of the locals in their interactions with Oz. History, culture, religion, beer, food- it’s all here in the tour.

Ozzie has set an impossibly high bar for what I expect from my future tour guides. In four hours he taught me more than I (thought I) had learned in all of my previous trips AND school combined - and he presented it in a way that was easily digestible. Everything makes more sense to me now. Not just for Munich, but Bavarian culture, politics, the symbols used on their flags/crests, and how to navigate just about every European city.

I booked the tour at 3:00AM while fighting jet lag. I thought, "hey, if Trip Advisor is allowing me to do this on such short notice, there must be other people booked." Nope. It was just me on a Saturday morning. I felt kind of bad about this because A: I deprived him of a day off and B: I (falsely) thought maybe it would be rushed. ... Nothing could be further from the truth. He showed up right on time with that giant smile and we were off to the races.

He spoke almost the entire time and _none_ of it was wasted. Everything he said had a reason and it all intertwined in to an elaborate narrative.

I've done a lot of tours in Munich covering different subject matter. Some of those tours I've done multiple times for different reasons and I've seen the same tour done well, and done poorly. It boils down to the tour guide. I can confidently tell that if you want to do a food tour, a beer tour, a WWII war, whatever, THIS tour with Ozzie will not let you down.

Great way to immerse yourself in Bavarian culture!
I've done a number of walking tours throughout Europe and I have to say that this one is quite unique. Ozzy doesn't just tell you facts, he's created a narrative about what it means to be Bavarian. In about 4 hours he takes you through and intricate web of historic, cultural, economic and political factors that paints a meaningful picture of Munich as s city and Bavaria as a country.

I was lucky enough to experience this tour in a group with only 1 other participant, which allowed for a lot of interaction with Ozzy. Just because there were only 2 of us, Ozzy have his A-game.

I recommend this tour for anyone who is looking for some real context about the place they're in.

Ozzie was an outstanding guide. The context he provided about Munich and the Bavarian culture was very informative while at the same time, entertaining. Recommend you take this tour your first full day in Munich as it is an excellent way to acclimate yourself to Munich.

I’ve done dozens of walking and food tours around the globe. This one is in the select category of “transformational” with two others in Argentina and Porto.
Ozzie starts the tour like a ball of energy, the amount of information he throws at you is dizzying at first (“don’t ask questions, trust the process” he said), but that’s because he’s perfected the tour to answer the vast majority of ones questions as part of it, leaving plenty of time in the end for extras.
Unapologetic, Ozzie will tell you about himself and Bavaria (not Germany) on a full immersion tour, that will leave you with a good understanding of what this place and people are like. “Mia San Mia”.
I hope to see you in Porto one day.

Absolutely recommended!

Oz's tour was the first of many tours for me, and I travelled to Austria, Czech and other German cities after Munich, and each subsequent tour made me appreciate Oz's tour even more.

His style is not to just explain an attraction, but to give context to the attraction by giving a low down on the culture, history and why certain things are like this. He calls himself giving the "building blocks" to understand Europe, and I was initially skeptical, but every subsequent European city I traveled to, I found myself referencing back to what Oz mentioned, and with what he mentioned to look out for totally applicable to other cities. He also shared very local things such as drinking customs that I found totally missing from other tours (highly rated ones) in other cities. I wouldn't have known how to look for things without Oz's tour, and even some locals from other German cities were surprised that I know certain things as a tourist. He was also totally engaging for the entire duration, something that I only experienced from one other guide from Prague.

TLDR: If you have to chance, please book Oz's tour to not just understand what you are looking at, but to understand the culture and context behind it.

Awesome tour!
This is NOT your regular city tour - you actually get to understand München's and Germany's history, society, culture, politics and much more. Absolutely recommend this tour to anyone.

Oz The Wizard of Munich
Jul 2021
The Oz Tour is spectacular and a must for any first time visitor to Munich. Oz was kind enough to work on Sunday (generally his day off). We went on the solo Immersion and Bavarian Beer Schnapps Tour. I want to insure I preface this review with what a kind soul Oz truly is. Two weeks prior to the tour he called us making sure we knew the logistics of the tour, He graciously answered any questions we had before ever arriving in Europe. Truly a great host and ambassador to Munich. He made us feel at ease for upcoming trip.
On the day of the tour Oz met us near our hotel (Hofbrauhaus) and took us to first stop explaining the dynamics of Bavaria versus Germany and we drank some beer. We moved to a biergarten where Oz is a local celebrity, explaining the history Bavarian clothing and we drank some beer. We then moved a smaller biergarten (Le Clou) where Oz showed us proper etiquette for toasting (which I was tested myriad of times throughout the day) and we drank some beer. He introduced some local schnapps as he pointed out that this was a favorite hangout of Freddie Mercury highlighting his picture on the wall and we drank some beer. We moved to another biergarten where the beer was tapped from antique wooden barrels and Oz introduced us to local a beer connoisseur where I practiced my toasting skills and drank some beer. We ended the night with some great schnitzel and drank some beer.
You would be cheating yourself if you visited Munich without experiencing a tour with Oz

Meeting the local and becoming familiar with Munich City
Oct 2020
I was the only one on the tour due to COVID-19 been lifted not long ago. Oz was amazing and did the tour as if it was with a group. I learnt a lot about Munich and also how to view and navigate in Munich and any City.
It was brilliant and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Munich. It worth every penny and more.

Thank you Oz for the tour and the extended time spent together after the tour. It was much appreciated.

I wish we could take Oz to every city we visit.
Sep 2020
This was an amazing tour! Oz really makes the entire experience feel like you are visiting a close friend that wants to show you their city. Despite the weather and Covid restrictions he made sure to give us a taste of what it means to be Bavarian and a glimpse into their everyday pride. Oz shares his knowledge of historical events, architecture, modern insights, shopping, culture, customs and where to get the best food. At the beginning of the tour he us asked a few questions to know how to better tailor the experience and after 5 hours he left us with a good and comfy feeling about exploring the city on our own. I wish we could take him to every city we visit.
