I would not have wanted to do this on my own, but I was worried that taking a tour I would miss things along the way. No worries! I really feel that I got the best tour possible. Our guide was informed, passionate, and personal. I left with such a deeper understanding of the events leading up to the use of Dachau Concentration Camp and the series of events after the war. Take this tour. You will not leave disappointed.
For our Dachau tour we had a German citizen that gave the tour, which added a little more weight to his words. There is a lot of walking on this tour, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes. As far the actual Dachau memorial site, there is a lot to see but the tour guide does a great job hitting the high points and providing additional information.
For the Third Reich walking tour our guide was very knowledgeable about the subject and explained everything in detail often making comparisons to current times. It was very interesting to walk around Munich and see some of the important locations, as well as hear the history. I would recommend this tour to anyone that has an interest in this part of Munich's history.
Dachau tour was superb mainly because of the talented tour guide, Sadri, who took us through a very difficult subject in a tasteful and insightful manner. He made the camp come alive even after 70 years. Excellent guide and we would book again with him on another tour.

This is a pretty intense experience. Make no mistake. Dachau was brutal.
We met our guide at the train station which was easy for me to find because I was staying 2 blocks away. Dachau is about 30-45 minutes outside of Munich.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and tried to answer all of our questions for some questions there are simply no answers at Dachau. He also understood how emotional this tour can be and was understanding and kind. Our guide only does this tour 2-3 times a week because of the emotional toll it takes. Even though he was born after the war it was clear how disturbing this chapter is for him.
It was striking to me that 70 years later Germany is still coming to grips with this chapter of history.
I recommend that everyone visit Dachau so that we never forget.
The Dachau tour was a very profound experience. Our guide Keith was very informative and a great guide for that type of tour.
The Third Reich walking tour was very interesting and I learned a lot about Munich and how its history is still in plain sight. Definitely a must if you are visiting Munich.
We took this tour back in early June, and it's something everyone should do when visiting Munich. A sobering moving experience. Special Thanks go out to our tour guide Jeff, for keeping us informed during the tour, helping us avoid the crowds, and when traveling via the train and bus to Dachau. Highly recommended.
The day we went on this tour was quite hot, but our guide Ton, tried to keep us the shade as much as possible. Tom was very passionate about Dachau, and made sure that iwe were aware that it was a memorial to all the lost souls, and not n attraction. He was highly informative and we would recommend this tour.
We had a private tour, just the two of us, with Steve who was THE BEST guide ever! My traveling companion was in a wheelchair due to an accident in Dubrovnik and Steve went out of his way to make sure that the journey to/from/during the tour was possible in a wheelchair and even pushed the wheelchair for me most of the way. What we saw was heart wrenching but it was Steve's personal stories which brought the entire Dachau experience to life and made it so meaningful. I would HIGHLY recommend spending the extra money for a private tour of Dachau and, if you are lucky, you will get Steve as your guide.
Nikola was a splendid tour guide! She was a great speaker and knowledgeable about the history of Dachau. So glad we did the tour, as it would take many hours to read all of the info at the memorial site. This tour was a great, informative overview. I would highly recommend the local tour company.
Our guide, Steve, was great. He was very interested in and knowledgeable of the Concentration Camp era and history, and the gangsters that ran Dachau. It was a moving experience. There were about 28 of us and we rode the train and bus from the Munich station out to the camp. We saw it all. How could such an intelligent, clean, hard working, religious people get caught up in all that is beyond me, never again.
Alun Evans was an excellent guide. He provided an overview of events that led up to WWII, information about WWII as well as information about the liberation of Dachau. I am quite a history buff and was pleasantly surprised at how much knowledge and insight Alun had. This excursion is worth every Euro and I strongly recommend the tour.
An excellent tour! Informative and helpful tour guides for both the Dachau and Third Reich parts of the tour.
A site with a sad history but definitely happy that we visited it. We had the most amazing guide Achim whose knowledge of Dachau and German history of World War 2 added greatly to our visit. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Munich.
Most awesome experience! The tour guide was very much worth the expense of the trip. Keith extremely knowledgeable about Dachau and the entire history of that era. He was amazing. The logistics were excellent. I highly recommend the tour.
Excellent tour leader who helped us understand the history and context of Dachau. Not enough time in the museum--but given time restriction of tour, was best that could be done.
Very informative tour and guide. We learned a lot about the actual facts of Dachau and were able to reflect on the significance of this site during the Nazi occupation.
We debated on whether to do the small group or the private group tour, but we are definitely glad we decided on the private tour. Our guide, Scott, met us at our hotel, and took us to the train station. Scott was very knowledgeable and answered any question we had regarding Dachau. If you are debating between the private tour and a small or large group tour, definitely choose the private tour.

We had Keith Irish Keith, since he is one of 3 Keith's as our tour guide. He was so knowledgable about Dachau and the history of the events that took place. The tour was well done and a good experience.
Third time at Dachau. Guide was more interested in his opinions than viewing displays and information. We had been on tours of Pompeii and the Cinque Terre with Viator. Those were the best and this was the worst. Dachau itself is a must for people to see.
To be honest I was disappointed with this tour, it felt very rushed and I felt like I missed out on seeing a lot of the exhibits. This tour should be longer to allow people time to see the museum and absorb the information. There should be an option for you to be given your train ticket at the end of the tour so you can stay and see the rest of the exhibits and make your way back into town when you are ready. In future I would just make my own way to Dachau and see it myself without a tour guide.
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.
