Dachau Concentration Camp Tour
Arrive at the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site, the first Nazi concentration camp in Germany during the Holocaust, which served as a model for the subsequently constructed camps.

We loved this tour! Nicola was an amazing guide for both tours! She is very informative, personable and helpful!! The camp was a very humbling place to visit. We would also recommend pairing up Dachau with the walking tour. It is very interesting to see where all of the history began.

Such an amazing tour and great introduction to the history surrounding Munich and Germany. We had a different tour guide for each and they were both fantastic and had immense knowledge and put so much effort into the tour providing information. We loved the tour so much we went to the beer tour the next night which was also great and had another tour guide who was also excellent. If we had more time i would have done all of their tours this company was excellent

Our tour of Dachau was sobering, but excellent. Our guide,Steve, was very knowledgeable and respectful of the place we were visiting. He gave an unbiased view and told us so much background we were unaware of. He was great on the Third Reich walking tour later too. My feet ached a bit at the end but it was awesome to get so much in perspective. We could never have found those places on our own. Thanks!

Dachau you can do yourself by train easily, but the walking tour was excellent for seeing places you would pass without realising their significance.

I was in Munich for 7 days. We had a very full 7 days and did a few tours. This was my favourite, the highlight for me, and will be my most memorable part. Our tour guide, Mat was very knowledgable, it was nice to listen to him telling us the history right from his memory. He knew names and dates and answered any question asked, and he was passionate about what he was telling us. This is a part of our history. If you go to Munich, do not miss this. It's a way to pay your respect, and so the victims will not be forgotten. We ended up only doing the Dachau tour, not the Third Reich part of it, as it was suppose to be on two different days, but it got rolled into one day and after 5 hours at Dachau we just had no energy for another three hours doing another tour. So if you book this one, I would suggest to make sure you do it on two separate days as both together may just be too much.

My guide was exceptional - the Brit. He knew a lot, demonstrated compassion for victims, and presented a balanced view of this terrible phase of German history. Fantastic tour on a chilly day. Thank you.

Excellent tour of Dachau. Our guide was knowledgeable, articulate and engaging. We decided to skip the Third Reich tour, which I regret.

For our Dachau tour we had a German citizen that gave the tour, which added a little more weight to his words. There is a lot of walking on this tour, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes. As far the actual Dachau memorial site, there is a lot to see but the tour guide does a great job hitting the high points and providing additional information.

For the Third Reich walking tour our guide was very knowledgeable about the subject and explained everything in detail often making comparisons to current times. It was very interesting to walk around Munich and see some of the important locations, as well as hear the history. I would recommend this tour to anyone that has an interest in this part of Munich's history.
