A very skilled guide gave us a human approach to a cruelty beyond apprehension. She gave us the right mix of facts, feelings and moments for contemplation. Highly recommended. Lest we forget.
Maria was an excellent guide though this somber experience through the camp.
Thank you for taking your time to share the history with us
Just wish we had more time, just was professional.
Very wonderful must-do tour for those who want a meaningful one. Dennis was a wonderful guide and truly engaged with the history of the place. He is also thoughtful and responsible to each tour member. He made a huge difference that even my three children were attentive during the tour and thoughtful after the tour.
Very informative, Mike was very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Well worth the time and cost.
The guide provided for this tour was absolutely exceptional. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of Sachsenhausen and all the workings of the camp and brought home the evil performed there in a way merely visiting the site could ever have done. I strongly recommend this very disturbing but important tour to anyone wishing to learn about the horrors of the concentration camp system as practiced in Nazi Germany.
This was a fantastic tour; well organised, informative and well paced. Our guide, Jamie, was brilliant, willing to answer questions and provide additional commentary on current events and social climate.
Would highly recommend this tour.
Nikoli met us at our hotel and took us to the train station for our trip to Sachsenhausen. Due to the content of the tour, I cannot say it was wonderful as it was - appropriately - horrifying. However, Nikoli was expert in explaining the history of the camp. He made it a memorable experience and did it with great intensity and knowledge. I mean this in an excellent way...he was terrific and the tour was exceptional.
Lorna was incredibly knowledgeable and very passionate about the tour. Was always engaging and provided excellent information. Meeting up and getting to the concentration camp was very easy as Lorna was very on top of things, provided very good instructions and was always happy to answer any questions.
Tour guide Lorna, was fabulous! Very well informed. Highly recommend the tour.
Our tour guide for the concentration camp tour was John and he was absolutely brilliant. He was incredibly informative. As he said this isn't a tour you will necessarily enjoy but it's a must if you are visiting Berlin.
This is the most important tour I've booked on Viator and we almost didn't book it. I thought about just going to Sachsenhausen alone and getting the audio guides there but booked the tour after reading reviews and because it's inexpensive. First the tour details - the East Berlin meeting place and guide Jamie were easy to find and Jamie was helpful with purchasing train tickets. The East and West Berlin groups met up at the train station and evened out the group numbers so we switched to guide J.J. Throughout the day, J.J. gave clear instructions and provided updates on what we'd do next.
Touring Sachsenhausen is a very overwhelming, emotional and multi-faceted experience. Each person takes this journey individually which was evident as groups of friends and family dispersed as they walked alone to the next location, quietly reflecting on what they just saw and heard.
J.J.'s knowledge and skills are commendable. He handled emotional subjects with tact without shying away from the reality of what happened at this camp. I think this was an important camp to tour because of the diversity of prisoners and its role in the entire concentration camp system.
I highly recommend this tour and J.J. but it sounds like all of the guides are great. He was able to answer everyone's questions and expand on the answers. It's obvious that he is a historian who cares about what he's doing and sharing with his guests.
Tip: This tour involves a lot of walking about 5 miles according to my fitbit on a variety of uneven surfaces. Wear your best walking shoes!
The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided an in depth understanding of the history of the camp. I would recommend this tour.
I really enjoyed visiting that concentration camp. It's a really unique experience. The tour was very well organized and the tour guide, Daniel, was very helpful and willing to explain all we wanted to know. We had some time on our own to see everything as we wanted. I totally recommend it.
Had JJ as my tour guide. He was excellent. Deeply passionate about history and very knowledgeable. Well worth the short trip.
This was an excellent tour. Very informative and authentic. Lorna was a knowledgeable and professional guide.
Very good local guides just turn up 10:00 am any day at the Mc Donald's outside the zoo and pay for the tour.
No need to use middle men
Excellent, the tour guide was very informative and helpful. We were impress with all his commentaries. Would recommend this tour.
Excellent tour. Very informative guide.
We took this tour on recommendation of a fellow traveler. What an eye opening experience it was! Finn, Our tour guide was simply amazing! Very well informed. He spoke of the horrors of the concentration camp without overdoing it or sugarcoating it. Very experienced guide! He was very open to all questions clearly he loves his job. Fellow travelers, please tip your guides! Would highly recommend this tour.
Very interesting tour. Highly recommended.
Jared was a very informed guide. His knowledge of both the site and its important context within this horrific part of history kept his group aware of the tragic trail they were following. Powerful tour and well worth the long walk in the hot sun.
Very interesting tour with excellent guide
Amazing tour! I just wish we had more time to view the rooms with the memorabilia :
This is a fantastic, yet highly emotional tour, handled brilliantly by the Insider Berlin tour company. Our guide Nicholai was very knowledgable, and told us many stories of things that happened during the time this camp was in operation. He gave a very honest, and detailed picture of some of the horrific events that happened here. Like I said, it's an emotional tour, it's very hard to imagine and get your head around what you are seeing and being told. For this reason alone I highly recommend going here and definitely taking this tour, it really is worth every penny.
