For clarification, the name of the tour company was Munich Walk, this was the booked tour:
I had really high hopes for the tour after the absolute failure from the day before with a different organization. Sadly, this didn't play out. I'll bulletize this since it'll be lengthy:
1) The tour started late. 1045 show time, didn't start until close to 1100. The German language tour started on time.
2) I didn't even catch the tour guide's name she was so soft spoken. This was the 1030 tour on 26 November, for the company's benefit. She identified herself as an art historian who does this on the weekend.
3) Large group. Throughout the tour she focused primarily on 4-5 people of the 15. My 8 year old asked a question about the glockenspiel ("Did Ludwig the 2nd make the clocktower?") that had been covered when we couldn't hear (from 5 feet away) and the answer was given in such a way as to discourage further questions. This was while walking and not detracting from anything else.
The pace was also extremely quick. By the end, the individual groups were fragmenting out so much that over half didn't make it to the end. The guide actually recommended that people not come back to the central point when we were about here: https://goo.gl/maps/PLLjhffU8BB2
4) There were a lot of comments critical of how the Americans (I'm American) destroyed Munich but no commentary on why Munich was targeted.
5) Spending time talking about the American attacks on places instead of actual trivia. Bits of trivia were often wrong when they were brought up.
6) Marienplatz column was erected in thanks for all the Bavarian victories during the 30 Years War. (The Bavarians/Catholic League actually lost the war)
7) Bavaria is the richest nation in Germany and should be independent. Other Bavarian nationalist comments.
8) Napoleon destroyed the democratic Holy Roman Empire.
9) Objects in Frauenkirche misidentified, notably the cenotaph of Louis IV was identified as a monument to Max Joseph.
10) We never actually saw the English Garden. We were taken to the Hofgarten, told it was in the English style, and it was identified to us as the English Garden.
11) The statue of Maximilian von Montgelas was identified as a "statue of someone not very important" when he was instrumental in secularizing Bavaria.
Needless to say I don't think I'll be booking tours with them again. I was going to give this two stars but in looking at Google Maps we never even hit the English Garden.
I've also sent a copy of this to the tour company's email. The the political nature of overall commentary mixed with the descriptions of WW2 was a bit awkward.
