Steve was my tour guide with Radius Tours. I was the only one on the tour. It was Thurs 4/25 in the afternoon. It was one of the best tours. Steve had previously been a tour guide at Dachau and was VERY knowledgeable! He gave me a wonderful tour of the camp and then gave me free time to go back and take pics and look at things in more detail on my own. The train ride was quick and convenient that got us to Dachau. Then there was a bus we hopped on right away and were at the camp within 5 minutes. It was a warm and sunny day. If you want to buy books or souvenirs be sure to buy it once you are actually inside the camp because the proceeds go to the Survivors fund. If you buy things inside the initial bookstore they don't. I would much rather my money go to the Survivors. Wonderful experience and would definitely recommend to anyone.
This was a most fascinating, well run and worthwhile tour. The tour guide on the coach was very informative and her English was very good. The meeting place was very easy to find, outside the main station, and you could have the choice of walking round Dachau with the guide, or making your own way round and meeting back on the coach. She had lots of interesting stories to tell and we learned such a lot in this afternoon. Everyone should do this tour, its brutal and hard to see but so worthwhile. The history of the holocaust should never be forgotten. There is also a really good bookshop at the end with books in English as well. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Afterwards we were taken round some of the sites in Munich as well and the guide gave us a lot of history on Munich and the rise of Hitler.
Our trip to Dachau was so enlightening, thanks to our amazing guide Alun. He was passionate, informative and thought provoking. We are so glad we used a tour to experience this important memorial. Had we donevitvon our own, we would have missed so much.
An excellent tour and one that everyone should see. Jason was very knowledgable and provided great insight into the human tragedy at Dachau
Really good tour! Greg our guide was absolutely brilliant. He managed a rather large group through public transport quite well. Dachau memorial is quite large...esp the exhibition...you could spend a full day if not days here. Being interested in WW2 history, we werent sure whether to take this tour, or go ourselves. You could easily go yourselves as its easy to get to from Munich (10 min train + 10 min bus ride). But we did enjoy taking the guided tour as Greg, explained everything really well...showed us the main buildings, gave us time to see things ourselves, and really built up the story of what happened there. In retrospect, I am glad we didnt go ourselves, as we would have probably gotten lost in the huge museum...and spent the whole day in the first room and then hurried through the rest at closing time. This way, we saw everything properly at a good pace!
A very interesting and informative tour.
Our guide, Keith, was great and knew everything about Dachau, the events leading up to and following this sad event.
It would have been good to have more time in the museum to take in all the displays and information provided.
Would recommend to anyone interested in history.
I really enjoyed being on a tour of Dachau. It made it easier to get there and less worry than doing it on my own. My only complaint was the tour guide. I did not think he was very entertaining to listen to and I didn't think he was telling me any information I didn't already know form basic knowledge. He was a bit dull.
Spent a half hour trying to find their "pick up spot" with no luck at all. Then went to Dachau by myself and got a great tour from a knowledgeable German employee for 3 euro! Save the money and take the train there yourself
A very moving trip and the tour guide had extensive knowledge and was willing to answer every question asked of him. A shame the weathewr wasnt nicer to us but it did highlight the miserable conditions the people suffered during their detention in Dachau.
Snowy day which was fitting for a tour of Dachau. Our tour guide was invaluable to this tour. His knowledge of the history of the camp before the war and during helped to understand the memorial. Would not have fully understood the information on our own.
I found the Dachau tour both interesting and sobering. It was my first time to visit a former concentration camp. The exhibits were set up well and our guide, Jeff, did a wonderful job of keeping us moving from place to place, seeing the most worthwhile parts of the tour, and sharing a lot of history and interesting stories with us as part of our walk around the camp. It was very well done and it is something I would recommend to anyone who can do it so as to "never forget" the horrors of this part of history.
The Dachau Tour was very informative and our guide was very knowlegeable of Dachau. She was very attentive to the size of the group, keeping us informed on the train and bus on our way to Dachau. The tour was well organized and allowed plenty of time for reflection at many of the exhibits and buildings. Throughout she would stop our group and have additional information for us.
This was the best purchase of my time in Munich. Our tour guide (Achim?) was so knowledgeable about Dachau. The only downside is that you do not have time to stop and read all the different things in the exhibition. However, some of my travel group did purchase a book of the entire exhibit. I felt we were given more than enough info to make up for not reading the exhibition material
I thought the tour was very very good. It was a moving experience going to Dachau and I appreciated the guide's emphasis on respect (e.g. not allowing anyone to take photos of themselves in the gas chamber). While the guide's goal of learning everyone's name was a nice touch (and did contrast with the prisoner's namelessness), it sometimes felt like a time waster (but that's a minor point). All in all, an excellent tour. The guide was very interested and knowledgeable. Wish we had more time to walk around ourselves.
Our tour guide, Kevin, was nice but talked a lot. He knew an exceptional amount about the history of Dachau. We heard later there was a good video presentation at the camp, but our tour didn't get to see it which is disappointing. We did get to see most other parts of the camp, though.
