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.

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

Taff led the three of us on our first day here visiting from Boston. No big tour crowds for us; Taff is a historian and archeologist who skips the fluff and shares his knowledge very personally and intimately. The day was like an ongoing discussion about not just what we saw but Bavarian history, politics and culture. Fascinating fun!

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...
