This tour was fabulous! The tour guide could answer any question thrown at him. It of course was quite sad and made quite an impression on us. Our only problem was that we did not realize how much walking there would be. However we were able to rent a scooter. They do not charge for the rental!!!! I would highly recommend this tour.
Very knowledgeable guide, the tour was very interesting but be prepared to be on your feet for several hours - standing and walking. The train to bus transport was a bit difficult with masses of school children pushing their way in, however, our guide did the best he could to get us in as a group. Dachau itself was a bit disappointing. My husband was there 40 years ago and he said that it has been toned down quite a bit, almost made PG-13. Overall, I am glad we went and used VIATOR.
If I could give five stars to the guide Steve the Brit I would. Well done.... he was a virtual, historical well of knowledge. It was the best of the tours.
Tour guide was excellent. His knowledge of history brought the place to life. If you visit without a guide you will not have a full experience. The buildings left standing do not convey the significance of the site. It was only through the narrative tour provided by a very knowledgeable guide that one can fully experience the significance of a visit to Dachau Concentration Camp.
I normally like to explore on my own, however, since I have a limited amount of time at Munich I wanted to get the most out of it. Not disappointed with the viator / local tour operator half day tour to Dachau. Guide Matt is very knowledgeable about the subject matter and did the tour in an objective and dignified manner. The tour covers train and bus rides so you don't have to worry about logistics to the site, and lots of narration from Matt. Not a lot of building structures are left on site so having a tour guide to fill in the details really helped. Could you do this on your own? Yes, but probably not with as much understanding if you haven't been studying in advance about this subject.
The tour ended at about 2pm for our group back at the Munich main train station, which seemed longer than promised half day? but I am not complaining. If you have onward trains to catch be sure to buy flexible tickets for the day or just buy after you return to the main train station.
Kai was our tour guide for this tour, and he was so knowledgeable and passionate about this subject. He took his time and explained everything to us. I felt like I was sitting in on a lecture from a history professor. He certainly made you think and you will come away with a certain knowledge that you didn't have going in. I highly recommend this tour.
Extremely smooth process. So happy that we had a tour and a guide for this experience. Obviously a very emotional and sensitive place to visit, but I am happy we took part in a tour.
The only way to tour Dachau is with a guide. Our guide, Steve, was excellent and gave us an abundance of information about the camp and background history.
Well done. This is a sensitive topic and the tour guide was both respectful and honest.
Very interesting trip. Nicola was our guide and was full of information. Would highly recommend it. A bit more time on our own to look around or have a meal would have been nice as time went by so quick.

This tour was excellent and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. I recommend this very much.
Excellently run tour, great guide, nice group of people and perfect size
Guide was extremely knowledgeable of the history of the time period and more. Very pleasant gentleman.
Keith was the tour leader and his information was so good. The tour was excellent, even though the stories of Dachau are dreadful. We all need to remember what happened and to make sure it never happens again. It was a privilege to be taken on this tour.
Fantastic tour with a brilliant tour guide. We had rubbish weather and it's definitely worth wrapping up warm otherwise you will be cold but would definitely recommend the tour
Nicola did a great job with this tour. The only thing that would be better is if it was an hour longer to give you more time to explore Dachau on your own when the guided portion ends. Definitely a must see.
The trip was excellent. Everything I expected and more. Well organised and with all information we needed. The guide was great and he answered at all our question. Thank you,Viator.com !
Very well organized trip. Would not have done it any other way. Jeff was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job.
Great tour, terrific and knowledgeable guide, very informative and an experience every person should undertake. We were a family with older children, including a 12 year old, and we were all touched by the sad history. A very important memorial.
Deeply moving experience. Our tour guide Sabri was incredible. He handled the tour with the knowledge and tact that is required of a place like Dachau, and his knowledge of not only Dachau but also German WWII history is staggering. Our small group had dozens of in-depth questions, and he was able to answer each one. My wife and I are not the kind of travelers that typically use guided tours we like to read and explore on our own. We were blown away by how much value Sabri added to this experience, and we walked away thankful that we were able to tap his knowledge. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough.
great tour and very informative guide. wish we had had more time to read more of the displays though.
