This was one of the best tours I've been on throughout the world. This was mainly due to our excellent tour guide (do not remember his name, but he was a Scottish guy with a mustache). He was one of the best tour guides I've ever witnessed. Great experience and will definitely recommend this tour to others who visit Germany!
Fabulous. Booking in was very smooth and the guide was very knowledgeable. Loved it.
Well worth the train ride. Very informative, confronting and sad. I cried.
Dennis was by far the best tour guide we had throughout all of Europe! The way he told a story and combined it with facts about Sachsenhausen was truly moving! Dennis is an asset to your company and I would definitely recommend him and the tour to all of my friends and family!
This was a fascinating tour even though the subject matter was harrowing. Our tour guide, Finn, was very knowledgeable about the camp, the history of the time, as well as the political landscape of Germany over the last 65 years. He was also very solicitous about the slower members of his group! A very interesting and thought provoking trip.
This was a very moving tour and informative. Many things that I did not know of concentration camps. A great glimpse into a different time and human nature. Finn our tour guide was very knowledgeable and handled the often difficult material with sensitivity and professionalism. This is not to be missed. (bring your walking shoes - a lot of walking)
Amazing tour! Our guide was knowledgable and very informative. A must if in Berlin!
Incredible - horrifying but important. Had a fantastic tour guide too (Maria)

Dennis, our tour guide for the day was amazing! Extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any of our questions. He made what he was talking about meaningful and heartfelt!
Thank you Dennis for sharing your knowledge with us, we greatly appreciate your time.

Excellent tour, very moving about how prisoners where treated during and even before the war
The tour was very good, and interesting. Our guide Finn, was excellent. His knowledge regarding the events leading up to the opening of the camp, and its running were extremely informative.
We would recommend that you do not miss this trip whilst visiting Berlin.

This tour was amazing! Guide very friendly, yet professional and very knowledgeable. So glad I booked this tour, it was emotional and seeped in history, well worth it while in Berlin.
Our guide, Roy obviously loves history, as he described the politics behind events and encouraged questions and participant insights. However, his toughest job was to keep counting the people in our group as we all got sidetracked. Roy made sure we all experienced some of most of the camp, which ended up a tight schedule. I arranged this with my mother, aunt and sister as we all agreed that we needed to see and understand what happened. I appreciated the guidance, but next time, I will go on my own and spend the entire day with the experience.
Obviously this tour covers a pretty unpleasant subject, but none the less is one that should be taken. Our tour guide Jonny was very engaging and knowledgeable and took us around the camp which is a 30 to 40 minute U-Bahn and train ride out of Berlin. The camp itself (as you would expect) is a very chilling place to be, hearing about all the appalling ways the prisoners were treated was unbelievable and when stood in the very place it all happened was very sobering. The watch towers, walls and some of the buildings are still there, the ones that aren't are marked out on the ground by raised gravel beds. There are a couple of buildings reconstructed using the original plans and building methods along with the original laundry and kitchen blocks which house museums and exhibitions of camp artefacts. The foundation walls of the buildings used to execute and dispose of the prisoners is also still there along with the medical ‘research’ buildings and basement morgue area. Jonny covered all these subjects with the respect and sensitivity you would expect, I hesitate to use the word enjoy, but I’m so glad I took this tour and would recommend it without hesitation to others.
