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.
No need to use middle men
Excellent, the tour guide was very informative and helpful. We were impress with all his commentaries. Would recommend this tour.
We took this tour on recommendation of a fellow traveler. What an eye opening experience it was! Finn, Our tour guide was simply amazing! Very well informed. He spoke of the horrors of the concentration camp without overdoing it or sugarcoating it. Very experienced guide! He was very open to all questions clearly he loves his job. Fellow travelers, please tip your guides! Would highly recommend this tour.
Jared was a very informed guide. His knowledge of both the site and its important context within this horrific part of history kept his group aware of the tragic trail they were following. Powerful tour and well worth the long walk in the hot sun.
Amazing tour! I just wish we had more time to view the rooms with the memorabilia :
This is a fantastic, yet highly emotional tour, handled brilliantly by the Insider Berlin tour company. Our guide Nicholai was very knowledgable, and told us many stories of things that happened during the time this camp was in operation. He gave a very honest, and detailed picture of some of the horrific events that happened here. Like I said, it's an emotional tour, it's very hard to imagine and get your head around what you are seeing and being told. For this reason alone I highly recommend going here and definitely taking this tour, it really is worth every penny.
Passeio que vale a pena não somente por conta das instalações, mas também pelos comentários feitos pelo guia que contextualizaram o campo de concentração dentro do capítulo deplorável da história da Alemanha em guerra e da URSS no pós guerra. Prepare-se para andar muito.
JJ our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He ensured we got on the right train and checked we had the right tickets. The day flew by and it is one I shall always remember. Full of facts which we could hardly grasp and accompanied by the evidence which we could not dispute. The best choice we made for an overall fantastic trip to Berlin.
Very profound experience and guided by Mr. Mike, I was able to immerse myself into history itself.
Sad day but what an experience. We learnt so much of this crazy history. JJ was an excellent guide. There were nearly 40 people in our group but he always managed to keep everyone close together so no one missed any of his knowledge which I have to say was outstanding.
An incredibly humbling and sombre experience which I would recommend to anyone to do. You cannot truly comprehend the atrocities committed here, but we must never forget the pain and suffering inflicted on innocent people here, and coming here, seeing the camp, ensures that you never will. Our guide was well organised, friendly, knowledgeable and informative. Definitely recommended.
