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. 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.

My partner and I are not history buffs, but we understood the importance of taking the time to pay our respects to this historic site. Taff was patient and... More

As an international airline pilot and avid reader of history, I truly appreciate a good city walking tour with interesting highlights and stories underlying them. Taff Simon led us on a remarkable journey into the past of Munich, covering everything from the Medieval Times through WW2. As an archaeologist by trade, he was able to show us little gems like...

Taff was an EXCELLENT tour guide. We had a group of about 9 of us and we used Taff for two days--one day through Munich and one day at Dachau. We had a great time! Taff was so knowledgeable and had a lot of historic items that we could touch that really brought history to life. We ended the day... More

No one does WWII like Taff Simon. He was excellent, he answered all our question (even the most obscure ones) and he has a passion for what he does, he brings pictures and props to help illustrate details of what he is showing you. He's also a super nice guy, you'll feel like he's your friend and not your tour... More

To celebrate the CIty of Munich's birthday, Taff, ably assisted by the Wench, presented a walking tour of Munich with a difference. As a long-standing Munich resident I thought I'd heard most of the historical bits - but not only did Taff bring history to life, he also showed us relics of the past that normally go unnoticed, and had...

Our small family of three stayed in Munich for only two days. We wanted to get the most of our brief stay so we booked a walking tour of Munich WW2 sites and a tour of the Dachau memorial. Taff brought history to life in a way none of us expected. We all left Munich with a deeper understanding of... More

I have booked a tour „Munich 1914-1923” for the participants of a WW1 congress at Munich University. Even though some real WW1 experts attended the tour, Mr Simon impressed everybody with his knowledge. Thank you very much for this interesting afternoon!

Thank you very much much for your review. Your group was very well read on the subject - I was glad to throw new light on a subject they knew so well. I am only only sorry we did not have time for a beer afterwards :-) More

Booked a tour with Taff based on the reviews here on 15 June 16. Very prompt reply from my email queries. Tour around Munich came with pictures of those guys and buildings juxtaposed with perspective of where we stood, and coupled with Taff who was very much into his role of story telling backed by facts and his bag of...

Having done some research on Trip Advisor, Dark History Tours seemed ideal. We weren't disappointed,Taff is a passionate, friendly and knowledgeable guide that I couldn't recommend enough and if we ever visit... More
