This trip met and exceeded all of my expectations, and the tour guide was outstanding! I would highly recommend it.
Our Guide was great .Eye opening and respectful to the past . Fully recommend this tour.
My 16 year old son and I did this tour during a short trip to Munich. The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and passionate about his subject, and committed to understanding what took place at Dachau in the broader context of German, European and Jewish history. It was always very interesting, and we moved at a good pace, that is neither too hurried or boringly slow. Dachau itself is a sombre place, of course, and very well organised for people such as us with only a few hours to be there. I felt that my son probably learned the equivalent of 2 months of Modern History syllabus in our 2-3 hours there. I was uncertain as to how he'd respond, but he was completely engaged the whole time by the tour and the guide's talk.
My only criticism of the guide is that he was a bit short with some latecomers, and not as welcoming as I felt he should have been to them.
My wife and I took many tours on our recent trip to London, Paris, and Munich, all booked through Viator. They have all been very good to excellent. This trip however stands out as the best of all, thanks to our guide Keith W.. Although you can easily get to Dachau on a train, you would not have the excellent commentary provided by Keith. He explained the purpose, function, and most importantly the significance of preserving Dachau, as a reminder of those who gave their lives to free Europe. If I could give this tour 6 stars I would!!
Great tour. Learned so much. Guide Keith was excellent and knew his stuff. Would recommend this tour to everyone.
Our tour guide, Levi, was great, very informative. While this was and remains an awful part of humanity I am glad this place still exists and can be seen so that it never happens again.
Right pace. Keith tour guide was very good. Gave details, facts at all times. Engaged us throughout even on bus and train.
Keith did an excellent job of informing us about a very difficult subject. It was well organized and a powerful reminder of what humans are capable of, both the depravity of some and the ability to survive of others.
Our tour guide Anuschka was friendly, intelligent, and thought-provoking. The subject matter at hand is a serious one and certainly not "fun", but Anuschka respectfully explored the camp with us, explaining what we were looking at and answering our questions. Her background in history enables her to put things in context and to help you understand the relevence of what you are seeing about the past apply to today. It is a must-see, just to get a sense of the scale of what went on. Fascinating piece of history to have preserved.
Unreal , guide was very informative and patient and knew everything . Very moving and interesting . Amazing time . Highly recommended .
Once again we have had a great guide through Viatour. Alun was his name. Very organized really knew his information and helped the memorial to come alive for us
A wonderful guide to this very thought provoking place made this trip very worthwhile and added a lot of information that wouldn't have been available
