We offer exceptional walking tours in Munich and the surrounding area.

We specialise in 3rd Reich and WW2 military history, archaeology and Medieval themes or can tailor a private tour to your wishes.

We are also able to offer tours of the Dachau Memorial site with fully trained, tested and knowledgeable guides.

As well as Munich history we offer a unique tour to Regensburg which focuses on Roman archaeology and Medieval Jewish history.

We believe in using all the senses so expect to handle artefacts like ancient pottery, swords, armour, uniforms, original documents and photographs.

Unlike other firms, ALL our guides have a background in history and heritage and have previously worked professionally in these sectors in roles as diverse as archaeologists, museum and theatre advisors and period-specialist film extras.

Discounts given for students, seniors and serving or ex-military/ambulance crew/fire brigade/police officers.

Suitable for history lovers aged 8 to 80.

Taff conducted an all day tour of Munich for our family, and he was great! We felt as if we were living history with his stories, pictures and props. Our boys, ages 8 and 11 loved the tour. We highly recommend it.

We booked a full day tour of Dachau and Munich focussing upon WWII Nazi history with Taff. This included our two kids aged 11 and 13. It was a tough gig to include our kids on such a serious and devastating topic. And while they did drift off into their own world during the tour Taff remained patient and undaunted... More

Excellent guide, excellent storyteller, excellent tour. Really made our trip to Germany. Can't speak highly enough of Taff. Don't think about it, if he is available ask!

I booked Taff many months in advance so that we could see as many WW2 sights as possible in one day during our stay in Munich. As I said in a previous review I consider myself well read and knowledgeable about history and WW2 and I wanted to ensure that I booked our tour with someone who was serious and... More

Taff was an exceptional host and guide. I surprised my wife with this nearly full day experience. Taff blended two tours to suit our needs and thrilled us with his knowledge, insight charm and wonderful story telling ability. We felt that we had got to know Munich over the previous two days but Taff showed us so hidden sides. Great... More

Had a great 2 days touring Munich & Dachau w/ Taff. He is an amazing historian with a ton of passion, energy, and knowledge. His tours exceeded my expectations and hands down should be the tour of choice of anyone visiting Munich. Prost!

Taff Simon provides outstanding History tours of Munich. We have used him twice in the last year and my students and colleagues have always found the experience engaging, fun and very interesting. He is professional, punctual and goes that bit further. I would have no hesitation of paying for his services again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our private city tour with Taff!! We had flown in early that morning, and he was extremely flexible about setting up a time for a tour - to make sure we weren't too tired from our flight and that we had had time to eat a quick bite before the tour. He knows a lot about the... More

My wife and I were so fortunate to have had a private WW2 tour with Taff in October of 2015. Every aspect of this tour exceeded our expectations. Taff toured us through the streets of Munich and brought us in touch with the events which led up to the control of Germany by the Nazi State. The tour was adjusted... More
