Ten Best Logo 03 Munich Local Expert  

Mike Richardson, originally from Albert Lea Minnesota, moved to Munich for love. What he hadn’t expected was that over the next several years he would constantly live and breathe Bavarian history and culture while working as a tour guide of Bavaria’s most famous sights.  Since arriving in Munich he has worked as a professional tour guide and general information guru for tourists, other tour guides, and local residents alike.  When he’s not leading groups around Munich, Neuschwanstein, Augsburg or Salzburg, he can be seen traveling around Europe as often as he can.
