Taff was an amazing guide. His wealth of knowledge and his ability to paint the story in the historical context made for a truly memorable tour (I am writing this five months later and we still talk about the tour) . Taff understood his audience...More

I have been to many tours, in many European cities. Most tours provide you with facts that you could eventually find yourself on Google or Wikipedia. This tour gives you much more. It tells you a story (actually, many stories). Stories about torture, executions, witches,...More

Taff came to my hotel and off we went, first got coffee. Taff is very personable and knowledgable about the history of the Third Reich, and the role played by Munich. If (when!) I get back to Munich, I'll use him again. Excellent tour.
