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

I was referred to Dark History Tours through a friend of a friend. From the very beginning Taff could not have been more accommodating. I e-mailed him rather last minute with my plans for visiting Munich and my hope to have a tour of Dachau. He e-mailed me back right away and let me join a small tour with three... More

A great afternoon out looking at the historical sites around Munich and answering our odd questions. The groups interest in history varied greatly however the tour kept everyone interested. I organised the tour from the airport on the way to Munich & Taff bent over backwards to fit us in.

This tour is a must for WWII history buffs of all ages! During the planning stages of our trip to Germany, I read other travelers' reviews and decided to contact Herr Simon. Our son is a history major and WWII reinactor. After gathering information about our interests, "Taff" customized a day tour for our family of three. The result was... More

We really loved Taff!! He quickly and thoroughly answered all of our questions prior to our 1/2 day Dachau guided tour. He met us promptly at the Munich train station and used the train trip to Dachau to begin sharing the history of what we were about to see. He brought us each a water (so thoughtful) and he also...

My husband and I recently took this tour and were blown away by all we say and did. Taff is ardent about what he does and it shows. The Hitler's rise to power tour brought home the reality of all we've heard about over the years. Taff even helped us buy tickets to Salzburg and made sure us rookies were... More

Taff did a hybrid of his tours--combining everything from ancient history through World War II. The hands on materials he brought made it even more exciting. This was a great tour!

Taff was an incredible guide on every level! He not only showed us amazing historical sites, but local customs and traditions. He shared such intricate historical details that made his words come to life. He is ery well spoken, intelligent, educated and FUN! I would (and have) highly recommend Taff to my friends and family alike. I'd feel completely comfortable... More

We got this for my son a history buff who wanted to learn more about WWII Germany. As I was arranging and told Taff I hoped to add Dachau at some point, we quickly added this as a destination. It was so much better than advertised. Now that is saying something given how highly he is rated. All I can... More

This tour, was fantastic. We spent two incredible weeks in Germany but this was by far our favorite thing we did. First I need to say Taff was so wonderful in accommodating us. We ended up in Munich during the major storm, because of this the day before our tour we ended up spending the morning in the train station... More

We arranged to spend one day with Taff Simon of Dark Tours but spent more due to the weather. (There was a hurricane!) Taff was wonderful. He had so much information to share and relics too. We started by walking from the Marienplatz past a number of places that were known both pre-WWII and during the war. Who would have... More
