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.
I enjoy taking time to get to know the history of a city when I visit a new one, and Sachsenhausen is a huge part of the history of not only Berlin, but Germany as a whole. Our tour guide, Maria, was wonderful. She knows the camp and its history so well and her delivery was very personal. She also welcomed my questions when I approached her as we walked back to the station on the way back into the city.
Thank you very much this was most certainly the highlight of my trip.
Excellent tour to take. Even though it was cold and raining all day, overcome by an outstanding, knowledgeable English speaking guide 'CESAR'. He is a History major and he shared his knowledge. Highly recommend this tour and guide. 5 star
My son and his wife did this tour and they loved it. It was fascinating and the guide was brilliant. Would certainly use this tour guide again.
Our tour guide Lorna was extremely knowledgeable. Her voice projection was excellent and no matter where I stood I could hear her. The tour was long but because it was made up of different stages broken up by exhibitions it really didn't seem that long. A highly recommended tour!!
It was a cold and rainy day, which was quite fitting for where we were. But our guide was incredible. He was very helpful with the trains and then was very knowledgeable on the tour. I learned a great deal from our guide. He did a great job.
Maria was amazing! She had the correct balance between being informative and sensitive on the subject. This tour was chilling and eye opening. A must see!
Nickolai was an amazing tour guide on this very sobering tour of Sachsenhausen. He was very friendly, personable and above all, extremely knowledgeable. He provided so much insight, history and information and in a very respectful way. I highly recommend taking this tour and if Nickolai is your guide, even better!
great learning experience a must visit when you are in Berlin. We conveniently met the guide at the metro station and we all left together for Sachsenhausen.
Great tour and a must do if you are in Berlin. Our guide, Jaime, was fantastic. Very knowledgable about the camp and German history. This tour was well worth the time and money.
This tour is a must do as it is a part of history that nobody should ignore or forget. Our tour guide, Pip, was very knowledgeable and informative, treating a difficult issue with sensitivity and compassion. The only problem we had was that her voice did not always carry well so at times we weren't able to hear what she was saying.
Jamie was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable about Sachsenhausen and the Nazi era generally. He also helped me with some questions about finding my way around Berlin. I hope he continues to lead these tours, for the sake of other travelers.
an excellent tour guide, he was full of interesting information and enthusiasm - would definitely recommend this tour
This was a fantastic tour of a place that carries a heavy history. Mike was our guide for this tour and he was one of the best guides I have ever had on a tour. Very enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. He knew all the history of the place and also all the history of the Nazi's reign of terror and the systematic persecution of the people considered as inferior in Germany during the Nazi dictatorship Mike was very accomodating and answered all of our questions, helped us with transporation to and from the sight and also gave us recommendations for things to do during our trip to Berlin. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Berlin. Thank you Mike for a great experience!
Very informative, Mike was very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Well worth the time and cost.
The guide provided for this tour was absolutely exceptional. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of Sachsenhausen and all the workings of the camp and brought home the evil performed there in a way merely visiting the site could ever have done. I strongly recommend this very disturbing but important tour to anyone wishing to learn about the horrors of the concentration camp system as practiced in Nazi Germany.
This was a fantastic tour; well organised, informative and well paced. Our guide, Jamie, was brilliant, willing to answer questions and provide additional commentary on current events and social climate.
Would highly recommend this tour.
Our tour guide for the concentration camp tour was John and he was absolutely brilliant. He was incredibly informative. As he said this isn't a tour you will necessarily enjoy but it's a must if you are visiting Berlin.
This is the most important tour I've booked on Viator and we almost didn't book it. I thought about just going to Sachsenhausen alone and getting the audio guides there but booked the tour after reading reviews and because it's inexpensive. First the tour details - the East Berlin meeting place and guide Jamie were easy to find and Jamie was helpful with purchasing train tickets. The East and West Berlin groups met up at the train station and evened out the group numbers so we switched to guide J.J. Throughout the day, J.J. gave clear instructions and provided updates on what we'd do next.
Touring Sachsenhausen is a very overwhelming, emotional and multi-faceted experience. Each person takes this journey individually which was evident as groups of friends and family dispersed as they walked alone to the next location, quietly reflecting on what they just saw and heard.
J.J.'s knowledge and skills are commendable. He handled emotional subjects with tact without shying away from the reality of what happened at this camp. I think this was an important camp to tour because of the diversity of prisoners and its role in the entire concentration camp system.
I highly recommend this tour and J.J. but it sounds like all of the guides are great. He was able to answer everyone's questions and expand on the answers. It's obvious that he is a historian who cares about what he's doing and sharing with his guests.
Tip: This tour involves a lot of walking about 5 miles according to my fitbit on a variety of uneven surfaces. Wear your best walking shoes!
The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided an in depth understanding of the history of the camp. I would recommend this tour.
Had JJ as my tour guide. He was excellent. Deeply passionate about history and very knowledgeable. Well worth the short trip.
Very good local guides just turn up 10:00 am any day at the Mc Donald's outside the zoo and pay for the tour.
