This is an important, but heart-wrenching tour which everyone visiting Germany should take. Our guide, Steven, did an outstanding job sensitively and respectfully guiding us through Dachau with the most insightful narrative I have ever heard on a tour.
Tom was SUPER knowledgable and provided us a great tour of Dachau. I would highly recommend Tom and this tour for anyone who wants to know the details behind Dachau. Even with Dachau being crowded with summer crowds Tom worked his way through the crowds to make it all work.
With our guide Keith, one of the best we've ever had on any tour, visiting Dachau was indeed a profound learning experience. Although what you see and hear about the camp is both sad and disturbing, I think it should be part of a visit to Munich. Highly recommended.
Our tour guide, Keith, was outstanding. His knowledge of Dachau was top-rate and his passion was clearly evident. He was sensitive to what occurred here and as a result, respectful to its memory. Very informative. It's a sobering tour - not a fun one - but never-the-less, one that should not be missed.
The tour was very informative and intense. Our tour guide was excellent - very knowledgeable, friendly, and he communicated well. It was easy to find the meeting place at the train station. Then a short train ride, and then a bus ride to Dachau. The bus ride is a public bus, and our tour was too big to fit, so had to wait for the next bus about 10 minutes. The tour guide had plenty of information to fill the gap. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Every informative tour. If you are keen on history I'd definitely recommend it. I'm someone that prefers to hear the history and stories from a tour guide than reading information boards. I felt I walked away with a lot of information not only about Dachau but about all the camps throughout Europe. I'd definitely recommend this tour.
Our tour was very nice and interesting. Both of our tour guides were very knowledgeable. Our Guide in Dachau had the sensibility to explain the horrors of the concentration camp in a good way. Our guide in Munich Irish person was very knowledgeable. Michele and I were very happy with it
Both tour guides where very knowledgeable Roland and Geoff. Really enjoyed the walking tour and Dachau was very treated with respect
Scott the Australian tour guide was excellent in his approach as he focused on the human element of Dachau and his knowledge on the background gave us good insight and information on the tour.
Note: A visit to the National Socialist Documentation Center before doing this tour would be beneficial
The 3rd Reich walking tour was very informative and the Dachau Concentration camp tour was very somber and appropriate. You don't get much time to read the materials at Dauchau though.
I just wanted to give you one heads up regarding the Dachau tour guide. He was absolutely terrible. The first day in Munich we booked a bike tour of the 3rd Reich through Mikes Bikes and our guide was so knowledgeable and informative and so interesting, the kids absolutely loved it. The guide that took us to Dachau by comparison, told us on meeting that he was normally the guy who answers the phone and that it was so hot and so many school tours and basically moaned non stop about the way that it had changed. He could not have been less interested. At the end of the tour, he asked us if we would rather just go home than go into the museum the most important part then stood around looking bored whilst we toured the museum on our own. We told him to go eventually and that we would make our own way back. By comparison there were other guides there that were fantastic and we saw how interesting they were by doing a bit of eaves dropping
Highly informative tour from an excellent tour guide. Keith gave an extremely detailed account of Dachau from its inception to liberation. Highly recommended.
Jeff our tour guide was brilliant! He expertly guided us through Dachau keeping us from the crowds whilst ensuring we didn't miss a thing. The Third Reich tour was a must also, you cannot visit Dachau without the Munich background.
My guide Steve was extremely knowledgeable and informative. The tour was comprehensive. You need 5 hours 3.5 for the tour and transportation to and from Dachau to complete the tour. Be aware, there is a lot of walking and standing in this tour.
Keith the Irish one was a great tour guide - he gave the tour and the memorial site the respect it deserved. Visiting the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial is a a very moving experience and something you have to do when visiting Munich.
Our guide, Kai, was passionate about WWII history. Rather than lecture us for hours, he consistently engaged us by asking questions and welcoming questions we asked him. I'm so grateful he was our guide through Dachau and will certainly recommend him to friends and family.
THE GUIDE WAS THE BEST ALTHOUGH DACHAU WAS WITHOUT A DOUBT PART OF THE WORST TIME IN HISTORY IT IS SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE AND THINK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED DURING THIS TIME IN HISTORY SO NOTHING LIKE THIS EVER HAPPENS AGAIN . WE ARRIVED ON THE APRIL 29TH THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF DACHAU. WE WERE HONORED TO BE THERE WITH SOME SURVIVORS AND MANY FAMILY MEMBERS WHO WERE THERE FOR THE ANNIVERSARY. SURPRISINGLY MOST OF THE 25,000 PLUS VICTUMS WERE CHRISTIANS FROM POLAND. I HATE TO THINK WHAT OUR WORLD WOULD LOOK LIKE TODAY IF WE LOST.
Taking this tour made the connections to Dachau very clear and easy, the guides were knowledgeable. Our guide for the Third Reich Tour was Scottish unfortunately I can't remember his name and very enthusiastic about passing on the relevant information.
The guide seemed very well-informed and very approachable and most importantly for a place like Dachau, he came across as very passionate about his subject matter.
A small group of 30 people is not a small group. When we left for Dachau from the train station there was a no train, but our guide was prepared and took us via the metro. Our guide was great but the group felt too rushed.
I wouldn't recommend against a tour, but I would rather have gone through without a guide.
It was an extremely hot day but Tom made the best of it by finding the shade. He gave an informative and passionate tour of Dachau.
The tour guide at 12:15 was excellent, knowledgeble, and personable.
He gave us the space to take in this incredible story. It can be very overwhelming.
But, such a sensitive and caring guide realized how potent and strong the
details are of Dachau. Definitely, 4 stars
Wonderful tour guide. He was so informed about Dachau.
Our guide was great. Fun personality and VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE. I knew a little about Dachau but presented with so much more knowledge of the camp and it's history. Travel to and from the site was easy. I would recommend any associate of mine to see the site and book with our guide. A worthwile experience for everyone.
The tour of Dachau was a life changing experience.One will never take life for granted after the almost spiritual experience.The guide was incredibly informative and sensitive to the past history.Regards Robert.
