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.

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

The Rise and Fall of the Luftwaffe tour was absolutely fantastic and definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Taff was an incredible guide around Munich and showed us the historical sites, hidden Nazi emblems, and Nazi hangouts (and the awesome surfers). This wasn't like most tours I've gone on, Taff seemed to have an unending supply of hands... More

My family did a tour of Dachau with Taff. We left Munich around 8:30 and returned at 2:30. My kids are 15 and 18. Taff is a wealth of knowledge and a great historian. So nice to have a guide like Taff to walk you through Dachau. He did an excellent job describing the conditions. He also had a backpack... More

I can't say enough good things about this tour. We asked for a combination of a several tours on the website and Mr. Simon (Taff) was happy to accommodate our request. I arrived at out meeting spot five minutes early and Taff was already there waiting, which was nice to see. He had the trains/buses taken care of, so all... More

An archeologist by trade and an amazing historian, David "Taff" Simon provided us with a highly informative tour of Munich. Taff has an engaging personality and showed us a spectacular time. It was fasinating to learn the Munich historical perspective ofWWI as well as that of the American allies. Great conversation, great food and beer. An overall amazing time. A... More

Taff was so accomodating, engaging and friendly. His passion for history was evident and you couldn't help but be interested in the material he covered. He modified the tour based on the ages of our kids. They unanimously agreed he was the best tour guide ever.

Taff escorted my wife and I on a tour of Third Reich-related sites around Munich. An archaeologist by trade, he was very knowledgeable and was well prepared with materials to illustrate the events that took place at each site. While I was already very well-versed in the history of the era, he helped my wife better understand the significance of... More

Taff provided the best tour I have ever taken. From a walking tour of downtown Munich, beer halls, and its history, to Dachau, so many areas were covered, including the fascinating, dark, and disturbing. He brought each venue to life with vivid stories. Taff provides personalized tours and is well worth it -- he loves history and has a special... More
