Our guide Darren did an excellent job giving us the historical background to the camp. The tour was paced well even with trains that were running a little late, but most impressive was our guide's knowledge in leading us through the camp.
The guide was very knowledgeable and made the visit very interesting.
This is a must see! David, was our guide and he made the tour! He was very educated on the events that happened and he presented it with the right amount of respect and reverence needed. I almost didn't sign up for this tour due to the return trip, on you own, on the train. David made sure all the people on the tour had their tickets and made their connections.
It was a sobering and interesting tour. Rick, our tour guide, did a great job and provided a very informative commentary.

It was great. The guide was nice and friendly. She was very knowledgeable.
This is a must-see for anybody interested in the history of the world. This tour was professionally conducted by our guide Rick. An insight into the the two world wars of last century revealed how quickly any nation can descend into a downward spiral of self-destruction. Very educational and thought provoking.
Phillipa was a fantastic guide. Very knowlegeable and experienced in conducting Sachsenhausen Tours. A few classmates and I took a day trip out to Oranienberg. I enjoyed the scenic train ride and the time flew by as Phillipa captivated us with decades of important history!
So lucky with our tour guide, he was very knowledgeable and ready to answer any questions!! Thanks
Amazing tour with guide Caroline! She was extraordinary, very helpful and with great knowledge of history. We had such a great experience even with the train drivers' strike. Definitely recommended!
A visit to Germany would not be complete without a visit to a concentration camp - it's history we can never forget and part of the heritage. Sachsenhausen is just a short subway ride from Berlin 40-minutes, and another 10-15 minute walk from the station. It was very useful to get a primer about the area, site and history before entering. Upon entering the camp, your heart seems to drop, and you can almost feel the devastation and lost souls. There are a few buildings remaining, and most of the grounds are sacred and bare. You will never forget visiting the remains.
The tour is not pleasant nor should it be one where you take photos, etc. It should be reflective.
Our guide, Rick, was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about the site and history his MA major, so he was able to provide deep insights and answer all questions. He was also very sociable with everyone in the group, chatting about backgrounds, interests, etc. I would have loved to have gone on another tour with him.
Dennis the guide was exceptional. He gave us lots of valuable information and was quiet theatrical as well. You couldn't get anyone more helpful.
I believe that everyone should attend a tour like this to see, and to learn from, the interesting and sad past of the horrors conducted around the time of WW2. This is the core message that was so amazingly delivered by our wonderful tour guide, Jared. Jared is so knowledgable and delivers outstanding information that will make this tour one of the most interesting you will attend. With his education in psychology, and vast knowledge of history, we were able to have an even better experience as he tied so much of what we were seeing and feeling deeper into the context of history and how it relates to Germany today. Absolutely wonderful job done by Jared, who even helped us once we got back on the train back to Berlin by trying to get us where we needed to go and answering any last minute questions that we may have had. I recommend anyone attending this tour to first visit the Topography of Terror in Berlin to get a solid background learning to even further help make this tour meaningful.
This tour is a must do if you have a few days in Berlin! It is really well organised and our tour guide Ryan was superb! He really knew his facts and he was also able to lighten the mood when appropriate, which is good since it was a thought provoking and saddening experience. I highly recommend this tour, as it's important to remember the atrocities that happened and all the innocent people that suffered.
This tour was great! Our tour guide, Philipa was fantastic and really knew her history and provided good insight into the current German views on their past. Would definitly recommend!
Our guide Rick, who had a graduate degree in history, did a great job describing the history of this site. Highly recommended!
Dennis was a fantastic four guide! He was extremely knowledgeable, and I loved how he told us the entire story of a prisoner in the camp as we went through the tour. I highly recommend the tour. It was the highlight of my 2-week vacation.
Our tour guide Dennis was truly amazing. Had the group gripped from the moment we left until we departed at the end of the day. This tour is a must if you are taking a trip to Berlin.
This was a fantastic tour and I highly recommend this if you're interested in history. The tour guide was very informative and knows his stuff. The only one negative I had was walking from the train station to the camp. I think the amount of walking could have been highlighted in the tour details as I have a disability and struggled a great deal. Other than that, this was something I am glad I did.
