First off, Sabine, our guide was super informative. Dachau is very somber and heavy but, everyone should see and experience it!
Would highly recommend this tour. Was sad, but very informative. Our guide was excellent and did a great job at explaining the history of Dachau, and the various aspects of the camp.
Achim was a fantastic tour guide. He was very knowledge about Dachau the Concentration Camp and Dachau the city. He provided great insight to what was going on to the country, and the prisoners of the camp. After the tour was over, Achim came to each one of us to see if we needed any recommendations for places to see, or eat during the remainder of our trip. I would gladly book another tour if I knew Achim was going to be the guide.
This tour is well worth money visiting Dachau is actually free and I would highly recommend it. Jeff was great and extremely knowledgeable about everything that we were seeing. If you go solo, there is an audio tour you can purchase but its not the same as being able to ask questions and getting a more in-depth commentary on the site and its history. Everyone should visit one of these memorials given the chance and the tour brings even more perspective to an appalling piece of human history. MJ
Keith, our guide was very good. Well informed and insightful. A tough topic and tour handled with sensitivity. For those that want to truly understand history an important place to experience.
Excellent and informative tour our guide, Steve, was top notch. Very knowledgeable, amicable - encouraged questions from our group, and asked some very thought provoking ones of his own for us to consider. Definitely a very good value for the money, and a well organized trip. I wish I had the opportunity to take the Reich tour with Steve as well.
This was a fabulous tour. Our guide, Alan, was terrific, with great depth and breadth of knowledge, excellent communicator, and he made sure our tour was unforgettable. Would thoroughly recommend this to anyone visiting Munich!
This tour was absolutely fantastic. Diana was our guide and I couldnt have asked for a better tour. She gave us a full tour and spoke about these things with the utmost respect. She was incredibly knowledgeable and kind, not to mention extremely helpful in getting us home our train stopped working and she led us to a bus, then the underground, then finally home!!. I would 100 recommend this tour to anyone who would like to learn about the past in a very real way--incredibly sad and heart wrenching, but necessary to learn about our past.
I knew that going to the Concentration Camp will be upsetting to me.
Once you pass through the gate the atmosphere changes instantly. There is a disheartening sadness that is blanketed over this place, but yet a hopeful calm that comes with it. Being here reminds you that we cant just turn our backs to someone elses problems simply because they arent our own.
You can feel the energy in this place go trough you with every step you take. This is one place I feel every human should go, young, old, man, or woman. The intensity is very humbling. If you go, you wont regret it.
Tour guide was great really informative and was very friendly. Your was very educational and great to hear about the history.
The tour of Dachau was a truly moving experience. Our tour guide Allen was very, very informative and knew the answer to every question we asked of him and gave additional insight as well. The tour was very well organized and the logistics were perfect. We would definitely recommend this tour to others.
We were met on time at the place arranged. The tour guide was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable about the site. He covered the history of Dachau from WWI to its liberation at the end of WWII. He approached the tour from the perspective of the prisoner experience. He asked thought provoking questions of the group to further enhance our understanding of the site. Very professional and receptive to questions. I would highly recommend this tour!
I highly recommend this tour, and if it's possible to request a particular guide, ask for Alun. He was knowledgeable, sensitive, thorough, and interesting. You can get yourself to Dachau without too much difficulty on your own, but taking the tour was so much more meaningful than it would have been without a good guide.
Interesting tour, our guide Steve was very knowlegeable. I learnt a lot. Would definitely recommend the tour.
I had been before but without a guide. I found our guide to be extremely knowledgeable and only too happy to answer any questions. Recommend this highly. Will take my kids next time I return in 2016
A really worthwhile tour. The guide Geoff was fantastic and worked through the site including the memorials and historic parts of the site at a good pace and provided ample time and opportunity for questions.
This tour was insightful and with an English speaking tour guide who was very knowledgeable. The tour was very cold as it snowed the whole time so if you don't like the cold, don't go in winter. Our tour was 5 hrs and that was enough to see everything and have free time. Buses are very cramped and if you don't get on you get left behind, so squeeze in! Overall a fantastic experience, kudos to Steve our guide who knew what he was talking about!
