We booked a Dachau tour with Taff after reading his excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. He did a great job. One of the things I really appreciated was, before the tour began, he asked us why we were visiting the concentration camp. He said he did so because he wanted to tailor his tour to what we were most trying to... More

I actually took a tour with Taff in October 2013, so I owe him an apology for getting this review up a little late. ;) Luckily, I had Taff all to myself for a long day-tour of Dachau and Munich. It was so incredible and really brought history to life! I felt so connected to the people that he was... More

My wife, 15 year old son, and I spent many hours over two days discovering and discussing a history, a dark history that is easy to forget in some societies. Taff's knowledge and ability to deliver a tailored message to a client's interest is unparalleled. He is a remarkable person. IF I were to describe in detail all of the... More

Amazing tour with Taff. Booked it last minute and he was very flexible at fitting us in. Really would recommend his tours as his props and detailed knowledge of Munich was unique compared to the bland tours I had so far. He also had info on the ancient history of the city and added an archaeology background to it. This... More

I had the great fortune to spend two days of touring with Taff. He was incredible. He brings "props" to engage and hold interest, he even wore era appropriate clothing for one tour. He clearly loves what he's doing and shares that love of history. I only wish my high school history teachers were this interesting, I might of actually... More

My husband and I were in Munich for really one day and Taff was gracious enough to squeeze us into his schedule for a 4 hr private tour. It was a very warm July day too but he carried his large backpack of "show and tells" on his back which enhances the tour along the way when he takes time... More

We took a school group to Munich this month and Taff was our guide for the Third Reich tour. His planning was meticulous and he was really keen to pitch it so the students found it accessible, interesting and useful. The students were gripped by everything Taff had to say both in Munich and in Dachau. He is an exceptional... More

If you are a history nerd/buff and are visiting Munich, you must look up Taff Simon/Dark History Tours. I know of no other tour guide who carries centuries worth of props, artifacts, costumes and even a sword around with him to augment his story-telling. (What a work out that must be!) I had some plans change at the last minute... More

My husband and I spent a half day with Taff and highly recommend it to ANYONE spending time in Munich with an interest in the history of Munich. Our tour was focused on pre-WWII and WWII. Taff was an excellent tour guide and the time we spent with him was the highlight of our trip. We thoroughly enjoyed the very... More

Taff is a superb tour guide who will give you a real insight into the city of Munich. His knowledge and enthusiasm for history is outstanding and the day we spent in his company was the highlight of our trip. Taff tailors his tours depending on your interests and existing levels of knowledge and he delivers it in an engaging... More
