We spent 3 nights in Berlin and pre-booked this tour as my husband and I were really interested in visiting a concentration camp. It was very interesting. Our tour guide, Mike, was very informative! Great walking tour!

I did the tour with Finn and it was fabulous, he was an excellent guide and very well informed which included a real sensitivity about the happenings at the camp. He recommended the name of books to do with the concentration camp topics one I have read and he has already emailed the name of the other. Top notch tour would recommend to anyone. Well done Finn.

Carlos the tour guide was extremely informative and flexible with photos, questions and allowing time in each location. The Camp is extemely emotional, but a very very interesting tour. Only suggestion is that the tour should start at 8.30am, and end later. The 1 hour train journey each way, would eat far less, into the Camp tour, if the start time was earlier and concluded later.
Thoroughly recommend this tour, and would love to return to this site, under my own steam, to take my time at each spot and fully appreciate the horrible historical events that occured at this camp.

Highly recommended. Very interesting tour, needed more time but basically set us up to be able to return on our own. Guide was exceptional.

This place is something that you HAVE to see. The tour guide and the info shared was very good, however once at he camp we knew that there is no entrance fee and there are some many other tour companies who offer this trip for free. Totally disappointment on VIATOR.

Our Tour Guide, Carlos was excellent throughout the tour of the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Walking Tour. His comprehensive knowledge, research and dedication throughout the tour made this tour a unique experience for all from start to finish.
He ensured the group remained spirited throughout the tour and ensured we were safe and transported together as a group very well. Carlos provided additional help and support on the return journey back to central Berlin as everyone was heading back to different areas of Berlin.
Carlos is an invaluable member of staff providing a unique opportunity of the tour of Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial.

Our guide was very knowledgeable, gave us a lot of historical context leading up to the building of Sachsenhausen, how the different classes of prisoners were treated, and how Sachsenhausen fit into the greater SS prisoner/concentration camp system.
While I had read about everything we saw at Sachsenhausen it is entirely different to see it in person and to at least understand a little at a more personal level what happened.
I would high recommend the tour.

excellent tour and guide Ryan was very good. Camp particularly interesting as was used by Russians and then East German government as well as the Nazis.

Mike gave an amazing tour of the camp, filling us in on alot of the information whilst at the same time being sensitive to the topic in hand.
Having lived in Germany for 12 years he knew the area well and was happy to help us all out with other suggestions of what to do as well. I wish him all the best!

A trip everybody visiting Berlin should do. Actually being at the camp and seeing where all the horrors took place makes it real and not ever to be forgotten.
The tour was well organised and our guide,Jonny, was simply excellent. He had great knowledge of the era and what took place at the camp and his passion came across in a really impressive manner.
Certainly recommended to all.

I was there on a -5 deg day , snowing, windy and freezing to say the least. The guide however held us captivated with his historical recount and amazing tales of what went on is horrible camp. A great day out starting on the train - which was around 50 min, then a 20mins walk to the Camp. A great tour with a fantastic guide!
