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 scanned a few of the other reviews before I wrote mine, and all I can say is "Me Too"!!! If you are reading these before you book, good for you. You've found a fantastic tour guide that will narrate and maneuver you thru the areas and events that you likely would have overlooked. Very knowledgeable, super personable, really felt... More

If you are ever in Munich, do yourself a favor and take a trip back in time on the Dark History Tours with Taff. He is by far the best tour guide around and an even better person. Both the trip to Dachau and the Third Reich tour were unforgettable experiences. After all was said and done, he became more... More

Munich is a beautiful city with great food, incredible beer, and rich history. Taff Simon told the story of Munich pre- WW1 through post WW2 with facts told in a story teller fashion. Dachau was delivered with the respect it deserved. The walking Munich tour provided details only an historian could provide. The concluding beer garden experience sealed the deal:... More

Two excellent tours! Taff does a wonderful job of making the tours an experience for the group. It's very evident that his tours were unscripted and that he truly loves what he does. It was an excellent tour from start to finish with countless facts and artifacts that really illustrate the WWII era in and around Munich. We even shared... More

I just finished a two-part tour today with Taff, our tour guide, and it was one of the best experiences I've had during my two week euro-trip. Taff was not only super informative but his enthusiasm and passion for history is infectious. If you want to really experience the history of Munich, this is the place to go. This tour... More

First let me say that Taff was a pleasure to deal with from the first email to the last! We are a family of four with 2 teenagers. My husband and son are history buffs, my daughter not so much. However, Jo, our guide was lovely and kept all of us interested. What a pleasure she was!!! The walking tour... More

This review is actually for a tour we did a year ago. I had meant to write a review right away, but an illness in the family wiped out that plan. But it was such a great experience that I've had it in the back of my mind for a year to write a review, and am ticking it off... More

My wife and I traveled to Europe for a 2 week vacation and I have to say that this tour was one of the highlights of the trip. Taff is simply one of a kind! He was highly recommended by a family friend of ours and we decided to give it a try while we were in Munich. This is... More

Taff is an outstanding tour guide. I was trying to find someone to give us a personal tour of the city during the busy Christmas holiday season on short notice. Taff was happy to accommodate us at the last minute. I explained what we were interested in seeing and he customized a 4-hour walking tour of the city for us.... More

Taft is one of a kind. Not what I expected at all. He is not a "tour guide". He is a historian, who can answer any obscure question you might ask. He was not only able to put together a unique tour based on our personal interests - but excited to do so. He took care of all the planning... More
