Powerful and informative, but very worthwhile. Guide was very knowledgeable and passionate. One slight negative was that tour guide led group at fast speed through transportation system seldom looking back to see if entire group was with him.

No amount of studying in schools, reading of books or watching of documentaries can ever truly prepare you for the reality of walking through the gates at Dachau Concentration Camp. Arriving at the visitor center and walking the path toward the entrance to the camp you can almost feel a change in the atmosphere, as if the spirits of those who suffered here still haunt the grounds. This is not a tour for those who are looking for a light and easy walk into history. This is a tour where one cannot help but so some self-reflection on our attitudes toward life and others. Our guide was incredibly well informed and knew so much of this history of the camp. You could see how the story he told behind each stop affected him and thus, affected us. Some on our tour had relatives who were imprisoned here, others had relatives who were among the liberation forces who freed the camp. This tour is an eye opener even for those who have deeply studied WW II and the terrors of the concentration camps. Even more frightening was to learn how quickly and easily the camps were established and hidden in plain sight. If you are ready to learn, truly learn and reflect on just what impact Dachau had on the course of human events, and nearly could have had on our existence as we know it, then this is the tour for you.

Our guide was exceptionally knowledgable, and she guided a large group smoothly through the public transport, and through Dachau.

Without our guide Monika, we would not have had have the knowledge that we left with. The memorial was very crowded on the day we went and she helped us navigate the crowds and filled in with additional knowledge. I am very glad we took this tour vs trying to do it on our own.

This tour was definitely an eye opener. Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable, making the tour very real. There is an eerie-ness and definite coldness about the place, but I would highly recommend a visit. Without our guide, I don't think it would have had the same impact. No problem with meeting in Munich and getting the train and bus to the site.
