Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Small Group Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Awesome tour! It was quite moving to visit this historic site where so much human desecration took place between 1933 and 1945. The tour took place on a dreary overcast day and I think that made the mood of the group more somber and for me it made the tour more special in a strange sort of way. The tour guide was wonderful! The historical information he was able to share with us about the operation of the camp and the historical monuments which have been erected since the mid 1960s was far greater that what I expected to hear. This tour is an ABSOLUTE MUST for anyone who visits Munich.

Neuschwanstein Castle Small Group Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The tour leader was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and was able to share that knowledge with us even though the group was considerably large. The only suggestion I could give would be to let the tour group know there is a bus available to take you to the castle as well as the return trip down the long and winding road. I personally found the walk up to the castle almost more than I could stand, but I took it slowly and made it up in time to tour with the rest of my group. I highly recommend this tour!

Munich City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The City Hop-on Hop-off tour was very good. It provided a very nice overview of all major sites in Munich. I visited during the first week in December and it was quite crowded. The tour buses were operationg on what they said was a Summer schedule because of the number of tourists in town. This made the buses quite crowded and in some instances seats were not available making the tour bus little more than a city bus or tram. I make this point leading into the only complaint I had about the bus tour. I arrived early and got a great seat in the front row on the top level of the bus for what turned out to be the "outer ring" portion of the tour. Rather than the buss doing the "inner ring" as well, we were shuffled off one bus and put on another. On the second bus the only seat I could find was on the aisle in the middle of the bus on the lower level...not the best place to sit if you want to be able to see things. I still would recommend the Hop-on Hop-off tour for the newly arriving tourist to get a great "feel" for the city and what is there to be seen.
