After a rocky start due to a miscommunication of exactly where to meet, we had the most amazing trip. Thank you to Steve Whitehall and the people at the tour company as well as the sweet hotel clerk at Hotel Schlicker. Steve was amazing as he continued to surprise us with all he knew about the Third Reich's role in the area we are in. We learned so many things and he was a wealth of information as well as being armed with old photographs that made the stories come alive. W ended the trip dining,and drinking with him in a historical pub that was off the beaten path of tourists. Thank you so much for everything!
This was exceptional! Our guide, Anja was outstanding, providing tons of historical details, recommendations on fantastic places to dine and just providing an overall unforgettable experience.

The guide met us at the time and place arranged. He was full of information and energy about the subject! He even had a picture album with historical pictures of the sites we visited. He explained in detail the history of the rise of Hitler from his arrival in Munich to his leadership of the Third Reich. His approach to the subject was even handed and informative. This tour is a must to appreciate the surviving WWII historical sites in Munich. I would highly recommend this tour!

A really worthwhile tour. The guide Geoff was fantastic and worked through the site including the memorials and historic parts of the site at a good pace and provided ample time and opportunity for questions.
Very somber tour, but exactly as it should have been. Excellent presentation of history of the camp and the historical circumstances. Diana was great.
You don't want to miss this sobering historic place. Our guide was very helpful and went over and above our expectations.
Brilliant, our tour guide, Steve, was so knowledgeable about this entire historical period. I would highly highly recommend this tour. Even though you can go to Dachau without a tour, I certainly felt that having a tour guide was very beneficial.
This was an excellent tour, and Steven provided fantastic historical background. His insights greatly enhanced the tour and made it a very special experience. He was able to treat a sober experience with the respect required, but still present a historical perspective far beyond what is usually covered in history books. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wishes to not just see Dachau, but really experience and learn about Dachau.
This is an awesome tour. The weather was perfect, nice and sunny. Our guide was a 5 star guide. He gave us a ton of historic information that was really interesting. Plus he was just a great person.
This was the best tour I took during my time in Munich. Our tour guide, Ana, was amazing. Very knowledgeable and her passion for history was obvious. I greatly appreciated that.
The views from the Obersalzberg were breathtaking. Even the intermittent cloud cover could not detract from this once in a lifetime chance to see this historical artifact up close. My only regret is that I wished I would have booked a couple nights stay in Berchtesgaden. It's quite a beautiful town. I'll definitely be back some day.
Good historical tour. The guide for Dachau was very knowledgeable and was able to present additional information. A little trouble keeping the group together...not his fault. Buses to and from the train station were jam-packed. Walking tour guide was exceptional in his knowledge of this history! He really walked us around the city and presented some good information in a way that had us hanging on every word!
The trip was a fascinating look at the historical facts of Nazi atrocities. Our guide Kevin, did a great job moving the group through public transportation to each exhibit and back again.
Very informative tour. Neat to visit places with such historical significance. Incredible views!
Memorable experience. Excellent guide, awesome historic background. A must do.
Excellent guide, Nicola. Very good historical knowledge. Glad we did this tour.
The tour and the guide was magnificent!! I was not really sure what to expect, but the Dachau presentation was respectful, informative, historical and reverent. We had been through Munich on another historical tour and this one did not even overlap architecture!! The pace was a little quick, but he got a lot of buiIdings in, and I am glad I wore by sturdy shoes!! I would DEFINITELY recommend anyone of any religion to experience the Camp and the Third Reich tour so that we will never forget this horrible part of our past as humans.
Levi was an outstanding guide and extremely knowledgeable. Very moving and informative. This was my second time to tour Dachau concentration camp but Levi's historical background going back to WWI made everything make much more sense of how Dachau came to be and how this could have happened especially in the 20th century.
The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and trip was very moving. It was a step back into history, the story of the camp being woven around me such that I really understood what the prisoners felt. A great historical lesson and enriching experience!
This was one of our highlights to Europe, thanking Maxim for her professional presentation and knowledge of historic facts! Also the way she captured information by pointing out the most important facts. She was great! Thanks Maxim, enjoy your cool weather, from hot South Africa-Heidi
This was a thought provoking tour for those of us old enough to remember the atrocities carried out in camps such as Dachau. The tour leader, Achim, from Radius Tours, was very sensitive to the moment , but was also very knowledgeable and familiar with the topic. This tour helps to explain some of the history surrounding the camp as well as the historic town of Dachau. Travel arrangements were convenient and the duration of the tour was just right. It was a memorable experience which is highly recommended.
Well done.I was not looking forward to this, however our guide was absolutely fantastic. Very knowledgeable and was able to discuss such a tradgy in a historical, knowledgeable way, that I felt when leaving it was good that we did this tour. Oh dear.
excellent, well worth the visit, guide was very professional and had an good historical knowledge
Great tour guide. Amazing historical info. Overall excellent tour.
This tour was led by Chris from Radius Tours. It was the first tour we took in Munich, and gave us a good foundation of how the inner city is laid out. First, a little about Chris's style. We started the tour in the train station, which is a noisy place. He found a quieter hallway for us, so we could hear him better. He did this throughout the tour. He has an excellent voice that he knows how to project, so there was never an issue hearing him. Chris took us to the historical sites where National Socialism and Hitler formed their power base. He had photographs from the time, which allowed us to visualize the crowds in the squares and at the buildings we were visiting. He has tremendous knowledge about the social issues and events leading up to the war, as well as the individuals who played a role in that era. Highly recommended.

Defintely recommend that everyone travelling to Munich does this trip. Our guide was excellent and a very thorough understanding of the history of the rise of the Third Reich and provided the historic context in which Dachau was established,and then what happened there over the years of its operation, till the Allies captured the camp in 1945. He presented it in a professional but personal way, and got everyone to think about the issues - how quickly a civilised people can decend into barabarity, and that it should serve as a warning to all of us, to make sure we stand up against wrong - dont expect others to do it!
