Brilliant Way to see Munich!

It was a great tour- we combined with WW2 tour and it was a great way to see the city and learn about its long and complicated story...would highly recommend it and Taff - our guide - was the best!

Great tour!

Taff was very informative and fun. He is full of interesting tales and facts. Things that you wouldn't normally read or hear about. He comes in full costume (which he explains) and with props that help you visualize some of the tales he tells. It was interesting to hear him explain the reason for some of the sculptures and monuments along the way. If you love history this is a tour for you.

One of the best and most insightful experiences we had in Munich. Taff spins the story of medieval Munich with deft words and historical props. We were utterly captivated by his knowledge and enthusiasm. Highly recommend- you will not be disappointed.

Touring with Taff was an utter treat. We ended up with a small tour (just my husband and myself), which turned out to be a blessing, because as Taff learned of our particular historical interests, he expanded his talking points and added in extra tidbits and details to suit our tastes. We ended up walking, learning and chatting for a full three hours, and left with a wealth of food and sightseeing recommendations for the rest of the trip. If you're an English speaker, do yourself a favour and take this tour!

A dive into past! Highly recommended.

I loved 2 aspects of this tour: 1. Guide is a walking encyclopedia and has a brilliant sense of humor, so the tour did not feel didactic, but was both informative and entertaining. Kudos for the props! 2. The majority of tours in Munich focus on WW II and the Nazi party. This tour is very special because it's entirely dedicated to medieval history, which shaped Munich and is still deeply rooted in this city's history.

Hi Igor, thank you for taking a moment to write this review of your recent tour with me. I'm thrilled that you liked it so much. Because of the bombing in WW2, a lot of people think that apart from some churches and the Residenz, that medieval Munich can no longer be seen or detected. Hopefully, having seen it through the eyes of an archaeologist - and having sampled some medieval beers - you have a sense of how it was all those years ago. All the best for 2022! Best, Taff :-)

David was very knowledgeable and shared his information in a humorous and interesting way. Although I had been to Munich a number of times I learned a great deal about the city from him. He is a great story teller with props that make you feel like you have gone back in time! I highly recommend his tour. You won’t be disappointed!

Totally worth it! He is a real archaeologist that works in the city. With real coins and swords to show you. But don't expect ghost stories.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Hi Rosely, glad to read that you enjoyed the tour so much. You are right - no ghost stories.. but who needs ghost stories when in addition to ancient coins and swords you have a medieval beer tasting session? (My favourite part by the way) :-) Thanks for choosing to tour with us at Munich Macabre Best, Taff Simon

Taff was amazing! He was knowledgable and made the tour very interesting. It was a great combination of humor and history and we enjoyed the tour very much. It was interactive and we loved learning things that are not commonly known about the city and it's history. This was a fantastic way to spend a Friday night, I highly recommend this tour! You will not be disappointed!

Very Interesting

I would highly recommend this tour if you’re looking for something unique to do in Munich. The fact that the tour guide was an Archeologist made the information being presented all that more real, he gave a very, at times gory but informative, account of what Medieval Germany was like and how Munich was founded. 100% recommend anyone take this tour.
