Guide presented the material in a real and honest manner. Without Keith as a guide, I would have never been able to understand the actual events inside Dachau.
Steve was a fantastic guide! He really gave a great overview of the history and events that happened at Dachau. The trip was also timed well, with time for listening to Steve and his explanation of the camp and also alone time to wander off and revisit anything you wanted to go back to. It was definitely money well spent. Highly recommended even for the non-history nerds like myself!
The tour was very informative and included lots of information on the history of Dachau
Our guide was respectful and informative and provided a very educational glimpse into the devastating situation at Dachau.
Guided tour of Dachau Memorial Concentration camp with Keith from Radius Tours - highly recommended. A moving, chilling, worthwhile to pay respects/tribute and very eye opening.
This site as opposed to Auschwitz has more of an informative/educational focus rather than concentration camp content re-creation of experience.
The tour was excellent and very easy to be part of. The guide had wonderful knowledge of the history and stories of Dachau and really helped us understand where it fit In the whole Nazi plan.
Absolute must for anyone going to Munich, Dachau only 10 minute train journey, which is all part of the costs and dealt with by our guide.
I believe our guides name was Anna (could be wrong, appologies), and she certainly new her stuff.
From the moment she picks you up, the information starts, all the way on the train journey then the camp itself. Nowhere near as harrowing as going to Auschwitz for example, but enough there to really make you think and understand what actually to place. You tour the grounds, barracks, memorials and the Gas chamber and incinerators. Our guide made it very moving. Finally the museum which is very informative.
I took my 16 year old son, and would recommend to any age who you think would understand the gravity of where you are.
If you are going to do a couple of Munich trips, this is a MUST.

Dachau itself was very moving, and the is a place that should never be forgotten!
The tour itself was a little of a let down. Firstly on arrival at the nominated tour office the tour group was so big they had to call in an extra guide, so with the group split in half there were 25-30 in our group, so for a walking tor this is quite big considering there were people with prams and small children who slowed the grup down. Catching a train and then a bus to the memorial was fine but this was suppose to be a small group as per the title of the tour on Viator however this was diffidently not the case.
Entry to the memorial is free so you paying for the transportation and the guide. Once we arrived at the memorial other people who had not paid for the tour joined in, the guide said he saw it as a compliment that people wanted to hear what he wanted to say. Even though he was quite knowledgable, I found the ignorance to additional members of the public joining an already oversized tour quite rude.
I would not recommend this tour. You are best travelling to the site yourself and pick up one of the audio commentaries there and doing at your own pace or join an organised tour like most did for free!
I booked the tour as it stated SMALL GROUP TOUR, when we got to Munich Station there were 30 people on this tour. No thanks never again it took forever with 30 people. Don't say SMALL GROUP TOUR when it is not that at all. I did complain at Munich Station but was told that Viator always does this. There was really not much originality left at Dachau. Very disappointed
Sobering, sad and very memorable. This is a history lesson that is a must do tour as it stands as a reminder of the horrors that mass numbers of humans are capable of inflicting on other mass numbers of humans.
I am so glad that I made this journey. It stirred powerful emotions. The tour guide Keith did an excellent job of telling the story of Dachau and rise of the Third Reich.
Visiting the movie theatre. As the viewers were ushered in, many were talking amongst themselves but as the images on the screen unfolded, the voices became quieter. At the end of the movie, you could have heard a pin drop.
Visiting the Crematoriums was challenging.
It's not a nice tour, it's a very necessary one.
Our guide to Dachau was both an avid researcher and historian. She was impassioned about imparting knowledge of the background and hierarchy of the camp, it's prisoners, the kapo and SS commanders. Her presentation was both thorough and very moving. I highly recommend this tour.
Very well organized and interesting tour of Dachau. Worked like clockwork and the guide was very knowledgeable.
You can tour Dachau on your own but we definitely could not have done this by ourselves in the time without spending time in advance finding the bus and train schedules.
The tour of Dachau was really good. Our tour guide, Alun Jones, was terrific. His knowledge on the history of the site and the Third Reich was excellent. He carried out the tour in a way that showed extreme respect to the memory of those who were detained there. I found the personal stories of the survivors of the camp both fascinating and emotional. I would highly recommend the Viator tour of Dachau.
Easy train and bus excursion to Dachau. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable of the history of Dachau and the political environment during the 12 years that Dachau existed as a camp. The memorial is very moving and sobering. Glad we went with a tour group, rather than on our own.
Kevin (from Ireland) was wildly knowledgeable and passionate as he explained Dachau, the reason for its inception and its history. Although I knew something of the camp it was nothing compared to what I didn't know. This was a somber experience that will likely walk with me the rest of my life.
