After taking Taff Simon’s Dark History Tour of Munich, I had a much better understanding of the historical importance of the city before, during, and after World War 2, which was the period that I wanted to learn more about. Taff is an archaeologist by training, which means he has a passion for the past, is highly detail oriented, and... More

Deciding to contact Taff for my short stay in Munich was a very easy decision. All Tripadvisor ratings were five stars and the comments gave me a clear picture of what my day with Taff would be…or did it. Even after reading all the wonderful reviews with extensive details I really wasn't prepared to know how enjoyable our walk through... More

I've lived in Munich for several years and had heard about Dark History Tours through a colleague. I had some family visiting from the UK so I contacted Taff and arranged the tour. Probably the most interesting day I've had since I've been in Munich - no exaggeration. Of course, I know most of the streets and buildings, but Taff... More

As an archaeologist, Taff's specialty is the late Roman Empire/early Middle Ages. As a tour guide, he has an excellent way of introducing visitors to the history of the Nazi era. He also brings cool stuff to the tour. His huge army-issue backpack contains the most incredible artefacts from millennia of human history. Taff will tailor his tour to your... More

I went on this tour with my sister and three children (7, 11 and 14). He kept all of us totally enthralled for over four hours. We had originally asked for a 2.5 hour tour but we extended it because we were enjoying it so much. We all agreed that it was the best tour we had ever been on.... More

We only had a day and a half in Munich and basically spent it with Taff. Taff was clearly a highlight of our trip. We got off our plane and immediately spent the next 5 hours with Taff going through the Old City. He gave us a complete history from Medievil times through the Nazi era. His insights and knowledge...

I visited Munich in November of 2013 for the purpose of doing some research into a novel, in which Munich between 1910-1925 figures prominently (Nazis, of course, but very anti-Nazi). Specifically, I wanted to walk the route of the Beer Hall Putsch (which happened in /november of 1923), and also visit the sites of Hitler's earliest speeches (also beer halls,... More

My sister, who has a walking disability, arranged a private tour with Taff. My sister had never visited Munich, but I had. Even so, Taff's tour was especially interesting to both of us, because he was able to weave a story around both of our interests, especially the rise of Hitler, but also medieval Munich, where he has participated in...

On a Christmas market visit to Munich we decided to do a City tour with Taff and added on a Third Reich tour. The day was incredibly interesting, great value for money and one of the best we have ever done. Taff turned up with a full pack army style backpack from which he produced everything from roman remains to... More
