Tour guide was excellent. Far exceeded my expectations, and I obtained the full experience of the terror and horror that went on. I had looked forward my whole life to being a witness as to what happened there and I did and one more thing off the bucket list to do!
Could not have been better I am very pleased and my wife a Jew was too!!!
The tour of Dachau was one of the highlights of our trip to Germany!
We booked this private tour of Dachau because we wanted to really understand the history of Dachau. There is a local tour company Viator contracted with for this tour. Adam, our tour guide picked us up at our hotel right on time. Adam escorted us to the trains to take us to Dachau. While enroute Adam told us history of the area we were traveling through. He was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. He told us we would walk the same path that the prisoners arriving at the camp did.
Once at Dachau Adam guided us through each of the areas. He gave us an overview of what occurred in each area. He gave us plenty of time to look at photos and read the displays. He explained what was from the original camp and what was rebuilt for the memorial.
The 5 hour tour was over so quickly. We felt that the private tour gave us so much more insight and personal connection to the Memorial than going in a large group tour. Adam guided us back the main train station in Munich. He even helped us find a place for lunch before we parted ways. It was one of the most enjoyable tours we have ever taken
We debated on whether to do the small group or the private group tour, but we are definitely glad we decided on the private tour. Our guide, Scott, met us at our hotel, and took us to the train station. Scott was very knowledgeable and answered any question we had regarding Dachau. If you are debating between the private tour and a small or large group tour, definitely choose the private tour.
Best tour of the trip. Definitely recommend doing the private tour and our guide, Achim, is extremely knowledgeable and catered the tour based on getting to know us and what we wanted out of it.
We had a private tour, just the two of us, with Steve who was THE BEST guide ever! My traveling companion was in a wheelchair due to an accident in Dubrovnik and Steve went out of his way to make sure that the journey to/from/during the tour was possible in a wheelchair and even pushed the wheelchair for me most of the way. What we saw was heart wrenching but it was Steve's personal stories which brought the entire Dachau experience to life and made it so meaningful. I would HIGHLY recommend spending the extra money for a private tour of Dachau and, if you are lucky, you will get Steve as your guide.
The tour went great it was a private and we learned alot. the guide was very informative and did a great job.
John was a wonderful tour guide. He knew so much history and was a joy to listen to throughout the day. He answered all of our questions and we never felt rushed. It was a wonderful tour where we learned a lot.
Adam was the best tour guide we have ever encountered. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Our family of five enjoyed his teachings.
Our guide was originally from Australia, but was a great tour guide. He was extremely organized and provided us with the history of the Nazi Party and the concentration camp starting from the train ride. Excellent.
This was an excellent tour. All of the logistics were taken care of as our guide met us at our hotel and facilitated transportation on both the train and bus. The tour itself was very informative and moving. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided great insight.
Our guide, Kai, was passionate about WWII history. Rather than lecture us for hours, he consistently engaged us by asking questions and welcoming questions we asked him. I'm so grateful he was our guide through Dachau and will certainly recommend him to friends and family.
Amazing and learned guide- really created the background history which embellished the experience.
Our guide was great. Fun personality and VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE. I knew a little about Dachau but presented with so much more knowledge of the camp and it's history. Travel to and from the site was easy. I would recommend any associate of mine to see the site and book with our guide. A worthwile experience for everyone.
Jonathon was on time, friendly, very informative, and did a fantastic job guiding us throughout the tour.
Very informative and thought provoking tour. A must see if in Munich. Highly recommended.
Dachau Concentration Camp Tour was a very moving experience, one not easily forgotten. Very interesting and an important lesson for my teenage children (not to mention ourselves). Sabri, our tour guide, was very informative and happy to answer our many varied questions. Not a "fun" day out but a sombre learning day. I would highly recommend this tour for all ages. It was an easy journey from the Marienplatz in Munich to Dachau.
We visited Dachau. Our tour guide, Keith W. was amazing. He was very informative and helpful. I would definitely recommend this tour!
Very interesting tour. Jason did a remarkable job, answered all of our questions thoroughly, and shared past and present activities relating to the site. Well worth the time.
An unforgettable day. The museum at the site is exteremly well done, but we were also glad to have our guide (Sabri) to explain and answer all our questions. He was very knowledgeable and a lovely guy too. We were very pleased we chose this private tour.
We had a private tour and it was one of the most interesting, if solemn, parts of our trip to Europe. The atmosphere is subdued - like visiting a cemetery. Important lessons to be learned here.
Another great private tour with a super tour guide. He was very very informative and sensitive to all our questions. The tour was very sobering and very eye opening. I recommend everyone take this tour
Keith our tour guide was fantastic. Recommended if you are in traveling through Munich. .
