You have to take this tour to understand the feeling you get and realize the suffering the people went through at that time in history of WW-2.
In my opionion, a must do. And a must do with a tour guide. We looked so much happier than the people with the prerecorded speal to their ears.
Did not seem as long to get to as I thought it would be.
A hard thing to do but definitely rewarding. Our guide Kevin was fabulously intelligent, informative, and respectful.
A knowledgeable tour guide who brought to life the prisoners daily routine in an honest way not focused on drama but rather fact.
Excellent tour guide (Kevin), very careful and respectful the way it was presented!
A day to remember. The horrific happenings of that era were brought to life and put in perspective. Well worthwhile.
It was a sad but amazing day. Torben was our tour guide and brilliant. Be warned no shelter from the sun and we went when it was hot. Take lots to drink. No stops for food either really. Worth doing though makes you realise how lucky you are.
Our guide was Ryan, who was extremely knowledgeable on every aspect of this era. He was also very helpful in other events in Berlin and guided us on exceptional pubs/shops/tours; every question was answered. The tour was a sombering one but important so that one never forgets the tragedy that occured here so it may never occur again. Excellent book shop at end of tour; Ryan recommended books appropriate for my friends back home. Easily could have spent more hours here; so much informaiton. A must to see while in Berlin. Easy to get to via trains. Ryan also guided us to Augustiner Brau, the best draught in Berlin, and we agree! We had an excellent German meal here along with this very good brau and it was right near the Fassbender and Rausch famous chocolatier!

The tour was well planned from the walk through the city to the camp itself. We all learned so much information from our tour guide Torbin. His knowledge and thoughtful insights were a plus. I wish we had longer in Berlin so that we could have attended more of these tours. Excellent way to spend your day. Thanks so much.
This tour was very interesting and our guide was extremely well informed. It was a very sad time in the history of the world, but knowing more about it and seeing what people endured, as difficult as it is, it just seemed like a necessary thing to do. To honor those that perished and suffered. To recognize that this can't happen again. To see and have open dialog and not to cover it up, was impressive to me. So, it is deep and educational. A valuable experience. Note: The price is correct, it seemed very low for an all day tour. You do pay your own train fare ( about 4 euros) and it is nice to tip your guide at the end.
Such a great trip. Our guide, Mike, was the best ever and he made our trip amazing! With such a serious topic, he told the storys of the people who were there with respect. Both before and after the guide showed us how to Get there and back again. I highly recommend!!
Our guide was excellent, as he was English, there was no language barriers. We met at the assigned meeting place and then caught a train to Sachsenhausen. It is about a 20 minute fast paced walked from the railway station to Sachsenhausen. There appeared to be a bus that went past there but this was not referred to. If you are interested in this part of history it is well worth doing this tour. You do need to take your own lunch with you, it was suggested that we purchase a roll or fruit to take with us before catching the train at Berlin's central station. You also need to eat lunch on the run, there is no set time to stop as a group to eat lunch. Even if you have visited a concentration camp before, it is still worth the visit to this one. After returning to the railway station, you are directed on how to get back to your own accommodation rather than return to the original meeting place. Alan and Maureen, Australia
Our guide Jonny was excellent. He provided much information and insight into what happened in the concentration camps. He clearly impressed upon us the horror of the atrocities committed in the concentration camps. This was time well spent and gave us a greater understanding of what daily life would have been like in this terrible place. The memorial serves as a constant reminder of what we should never allow to happen again.
Excellent- very well organised and a super guide- well worth it!!!
