What You Can Expect
Our guide John or IN was great. Full of great stories about prisoners from the camp. Only thing he walks SO FAST. Out group was 5 people and he easily could've lost us bc he was moving fast. He was great just please slow down for people that can't practically run to and through the camp. This is ABOUT 5 HOUR WALKING TOUR. But worth the achy feet at the end.
Highly recommend this trip. Our guide was JJ AKA John O'Leary who was excellent at pacing the 6 hour tour on an extremely freezing day. He was highly informative and clearly passionate about sharing his knowledge regarding the good and the shameful periods of Berlin's history. Any questions he answered confidently to the best of his knowledge. I particularly liked how he honoured individuals who died at the camp by naming them or giving examples of incidents/events that too place. Although only a few names out of thousands, it brought home the reality of what had taken place at the camp.
Enjoyed JJ as a guide so booked the Berlin Walk with him.
Mind-blowing experience to relive a heinous period in history. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and intelligent. The whole tour was highly thought-provoking and, at times, brought tears to my eyes. Yes, the historical events behind the site were sad, depressing, and violent but every human being should know them, lest we forget. If your are touring in winter, make sure you have plenty of layers on, together with a scarf, a pair of gloves, and, ideally, a trapper hat because of the wind-chill factor.
JJ was a really great guide, provided a huge amount of historical insight into what went on at Sachsenhausen. The group was split into two, so wasn't too big, and catching the train was a breeze. The only downsides were you didn't get to explore the entire camp, there were a few buildings and sections we didn't get to see infirmary barracks and the Soviet section. If you want to see it all, I would go their on your own and pay for the audio guide. However, having the tour guide was invaluable and you got a lot more information and stories. Also remember to pickup some lunch, there isn't really anywhere to eat there.
Excellent tour. Guide was very informative ...well done
This tour is a must for anyone who has never been to a concentration camp. Even if you have been to other camps, it is still very interesting. Our guide Maria was very informative and the tour was well paced. If you wish to stay on after the tour finishes, your guide will be able to tell you how to get back to your hotel.
The tour was excellent mainly due to our guide Michael. Michael was not just giving a guided tour, it was obvious that he has a passion for the history of Sachsenhausen, his knowledge of the camp and other information regarding the war was amazing. A really worth while trip.

We didn't go because the forecast was so bad
This was an amazing trip! It was easy to meet up with the group and our guide Cesar was so knowledgable about every aspect of WWII and answered every question flawlessly. Please go with this tour it is very worth your time and money.
