We took this tour back in early June, and it's something everyone should do when visiting Munich. A sobering moving experience. Special Thanks go out to our tour guide Jeff, for keeping us informed during the tour, helping us avoid the crowds, and when traveling via the train and bus to Dachau. Highly recommended.
This is a pretty intense experience. Make no mistake. Dachau was brutal.
We met our guide at the train station which was easy for me to find because I was staying 2 blocks away. Dachau is about 30-45 minutes outside of Munich.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and tried to answer all of our questions for some questions there are simply no answers at Dachau. He also understood how emotional this tour can be and was understanding and kind. Our guide only does this tour 2-3 times a week because of the emotional toll it takes. Even though he was born after the war it was clear how disturbing this chapter is for him.
It was striking to me that 70 years later Germany is still coming to grips with this chapter of history.
I recommend that everyone visit Dachau so that we never forget.
Met Joshua and the other participants for the tour at the tour company's offices at the train station. Everything was right on time, was taken to the train and traveled together to Dachau and then got on a bus and then walked through the camp with Joshua who was quite knowledgable and interesting. He answered everyone's questions, and even kept a loud group of visitors on the tour quiet during the walk through the cemetery part of the camp. Was a very hot day, and he kept us as cool as possible in some shade, although there is not much shade there on the grounds.
Our tour guide was excellent! He was a great historian, setting just the right tone.
Dachau tour was superb mainly because of the talented tour guide, Sadri, who took us through a very difficult subject in a tasteful and insightful manner. He made the camp come alive even after 70 years. Excellent guide and we would book again with him on another tour.

I was very impressed with my tour and the guide's knowledge on the history of the camp.
Very well put together. Our Guide Tom was fantastic, Have a better understanding and appreciation of what they went through.
Brilliant tour. Brings you back to reality and makes one reassess what is important in one's life. Sad and emotional. The tour guide was informative, insightful and insensitive. A must do tour.
Had a very good tour leader - Kai. Very well planned visit, wish we had more time there.
Steve was very knowledgeable about WWII history, we were short on time due to our train being delayed, but he made sure that we got to see the most of it and learn of the history.
Every informative tour. If you are keen on history I'd definitely recommend it. I'm someone that prefers to hear the history and stories from a tour guide than reading information boards. I felt I walked away with a lot of information not only about Dachau but about all the camps throughout Europe. I'd definitely recommend this tour.
Our tour guide Kevin was awesome. He studied history and gave a well delivered and well informed tour.
The tour was very informative and intense. Our tour guide was excellent - very knowledgeable, friendly, and he communicated well. It was easy to find the meeting place at the train station. Then a short train ride, and then a bus ride to Dachau. The bus ride is a public bus, and our tour was too big to fit, so had to wait for the next bus about 10 minutes. The tour guide had plenty of information to fill the gap. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
This is must see attraction while you are in the Munich area. Our guide, Sabri, was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and interesting. It was sad day, but good day.
With our guide Keith, one of the best we've ever had on any tour, visiting Dachau was indeed a profound learning experience. Although what you see and hear about the camp is both sad and disturbing, I think it should be part of a visit to Munich. Highly recommended.
Our tour guide, Keith, was outstanding. His knowledge of Dachau was top-rate and his passion was clearly evident. He was sensitive to what occurred here and as a result, respectful to its memory. Very informative. It's a sobering tour - not a fun one - but never-the-less, one that should not be missed.
Tom was a really good guide. He was very detailed in his explanations and kept all of us well-engaged throughout the entire trip!
The tour was sobering and riveting all at once. Keith was a fantastic tour guide. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in learning more about the Holocaust.
The tour guide Keith was very knowledgable and passionate about this tour. It was well organised with the connecting train/ bus trips. Very thought provoking.
Tour guide Scott was well informed and the tour was pretty much as expected. It obviously wasn't a 'fun' tour, but it was informative and I'm glad we did it.
