I am a Tour Guide


Greetings fellow travelers! My name is Mat, a down-to-earth Northern Englishman who has had the pleasure of calling the beautiful city of Munich "home" for the past ten years. After having studied Environmental Management at the university in Manchester I was employed at a local authority level until the invariability of my everyday life led me to Flagstaff, Arizona where I worked for a non-profit conservation organization. It was also in Flagstaff that I met my (now) Bavarian wife. Our shared passion for travel and culture led us to, over the best part of two years, travel to all corners of the globe before finally deciding to settle in the traditional yet dynamic city of Munich to raise a family. Here I am, ten years later, not only am I still with the same beautiful wife but I have two beautiful children to boot! Over these years I have been working as a freelance tour guide, showing visitors from all over the globe this beautiful city and its breathtaking surroundings. I have come to find my extensive travel experience and understanding of different cultures invaluable and most beneficial in my work as a guide. I feel I have the understanding to be accommodating, open and adaptable to the individual needs of my guests. I am always eager to show visitors around the city and surrounding areas and to share all I know of its culture, quirks, and rich, varied, and often turbulent history. It was a turbulent time in this city's history that led to my interest and the primary subject of study, that of the 3rd Reich. This interest also led to training and becoming an accredited and licensed guide with the memorial to the former concentration camp of Dachau. I would be happy to customize tours upon request and having two small children makes me very family-orientated and understanding of the needs of families traveling with kids. Not only is tour guiding my subsistence but also my passion. My wish, ultimately, is to make your visit unforgettable.
