We are so thankful that we found Taff through TripAdvisor. Taff made our visit to Munich a more enriched experience because of what we learned and saw during our day tour of Munich with him. Taff is extremely knowledgeable and has a real talent for explaining things in a storytelling style that is very engaging and entertaining. Other reviewers have... More

Taff was outstanding . We started early and throughout the day he never did anything but exceed expectations. My son and I enjoyed his style, knowledge , energy and sense of humor. He combined information, energy and passion for the subject with an ability to communicate that is rare. Great experience , great fun and a great beer at the... More

I’ve never written an online review before, and until my tour with Taff I never felt compelled to. I travelled to Munich early September and after reading all the great reviews for Taff booked a tour focusing on Munich’s history leading up to and including WWII. His level of knowledge by far exceeded my expectations, and his passion and enthusiasm... More

My adult son and I were fortunate enough to have Taff all to ourselves for a tour of Dachau. He met us at our hotel, took the train with us and began our tour of the concentration camp. He is so incredibly knowledgeable. I can't imagine doing just an audio tour for something as powerful as this. Taff gave us... More

Taff has a historian's view of the origins of the National Socialist Party, Hitler, WWII and the perspective of these events in Munich. We had done a lot of walking around Munich and had visited the White Rose museum so we felt prepared. Ending up in Odeonsplatz was brilliant. But the overall impression I gained was how Munich had moved... More

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
