Taff is hands down one of the best tour guides I have ever had. First off he is a very friendly person and is very easy to talk to. He is so knowledgeable about World War II and had so many insights to share about...More

Hi, I´m glad that you found this tour - which dealt with some of the more unpleasant personalities and history of the 20th century - so useful and informative. I´m also glad that you were not averse taking time out to mull over and discuss...More

Taff led us on the Munich Macabre tour and it was the highlight of our stay. We quaffed authentic medieval beer (from authentic glasses), learned about witch trials on the sites they took place and what their ripple effect would be on places such as...More

I can't say enough good things about Taff and our day with him at Dachau. Visiting a concentration camp is something to be handled with extreme care, compassion and concern, Taff was all of those things and then some. He takes his job very seriously...More
