Ryan is the best tour guide I've ever encountered. Smart, caring, open-minded, and broad-minded. As opposed to other tour guides who perform a scripted spiel, he engages in conversation, shares his knowledge, and fields every question people ask with respect, thoughtfulness, and deep knowledge. I highly, highly recommend any tour he gives. I learned so much from this tour that will stay with me for a long time. I felt very lucky to find this tour company and guide. Thank you so much!
Incredible. Heartfelt. Informative. Chilling. Mike was a brilliant guide!
This was an intense tour, you cannot help but be moved by the surroundings and historical facts about this camp. The guide we had was great and didn't make light of it in a touristy way. He also had a lot of knowledge about the Russian use of this camp, which I knew nothing about and is just as harrowing. It's important to see places like this, so we don't ever forget what happened.
We met up with the tour at the Zoo, which is the west meeting point, it was really easy to get to and locate the tour contact person. Take food and drink with you as there is nothing there, and you will get hungry / thirsty. Although there might be time when waiting for the train at Hbf to get something but don't bank on it.
An excellent tour with an English speaking Guide. Would recommend having a guide as there is so much history the main facts can be pointed out even though entry to the camp is free. Customers should be aware that prices are charged at an adult rate if the child is 12 and over, not 13 as stated on the Virator site. Some other guides do not charge for 12 and under.
Excellent, compelling tour. Made me understand mid-century
Germany much better, not just the camp itself. Guide was an
excellent historian, and very good shepherd of our diverse
group, able to deal with different interest levels. As a bonus,
unexploded WW2 bombs were found on the train line that
day and exploded later...we got to hear them.
On the strength of this tour, I booked another excellent tour with same company later.
Fantastic tour of an extraordinary time in our history. Tour guide Torben completed the experience. Incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, and even stayed behind at the end to put people on different trains to where they wanted to go.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable about many topics pertaining to Nazi Germany, Sachsenhausen itself and German culture regarding the Second World War. The tour's additional information made the visit very moving - I don't think I would have appreciated the whole picture if I had not attended with a knowledgeable tour guide. I thus recommend this tour as a must if you are thinking of visiting Sachsenhausen.
Despite the cold, grey day, our guide Lorna made this tour very worthwhile. She is very knowledgeable and compassionate about the subject, as well as being very helpful and approachable. I highly recommend both Lorna and the tour.
it was great! we had a great guide Lorna, who told us more then we even could imagine. Very interesting thank you!
Very interesting and worthwhile tour. The weather for us wasnt great on the day, but only added to the atmostphre. Our tour guide Phillipa was great and kept us in good spirits despite the weather!
Pip was well informed, intelligent and obviously emotionally involved with the topic. She was extremely well organized with the element of time getting to the trains, keeping track of time with the tour.
My young cousin and I learned a lot. In addition, I learned how easy it is to book a tour on VIATOR, which I absolutely will book tours from now on.
This was a very interesting tour. The guide was very respectful of all that the people of the Holocaust had gone through, and helped us understand a lot more of what was going on in the concentration camps. He talked to us about all the different people groups under both Hitler and the Communist that were housed at this camp. The stories, although sad, were also inspiring and heroic. Our guide was a native German, but he spoke excellent English and was very easy to understand. I highly recommend this tour!
What a moving experience. Caroline gave a very informed opinion that coming from a German gave an insight into how camps such as this could come about. Lots of information throughout the day all at an understandable level that added to the visit. Could not have been better in anyway, wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Laurna was a Brilliant guide and passionate about bringing to light the history of Sachsenhausen.

Fantastic trip. Carlos our guide made this trip very interesting and informative.
Fantastic touching tour. Guide had a lot of knowledge but it rained suddenly without knowing so somewhere to buy ponchos would have been handy. Would recommend to all especially since we were running late and the group waited. Great experience
Very informative with a guide Lorna who was passionate about the subject matter and brought the reality of war back to life. Everyone should visit one concentration camp memorial. Excellent day out.
Very insightful and informative tour. It's horrifying what humans can do to each other. Well worth the visit. Our tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the background and history of Sachsenhausen.
Very great tour. Thank you to our guide so knowledgable . Really is a special tour and leaves you appreciating the good things in life. Just unbelievable history
A very skilled guide gave us a human approach to a cruelty beyond apprehension. She gave us the right mix of facts, feelings and moments for contemplation. Highly recommended. Lest we forget.
Very wonderful must-do tour for those who want a meaningful one. Dennis was a wonderful guide and truly engaged with the history of the place. He is also thoughtful and responsible to each tour member. He made a huge difference that even my three children were attentive during the tour and thoughtful after the tour.
Lorna was incredibly knowledgeable and very passionate about the tour. Was always engaging and provided excellent information. Meeting up and getting to the concentration camp was very easy as Lorna was very on top of things, provided very good instructions and was always happy to answer any questions.
