This full-day excursion begins with a tour guide meet and greet at Marienplatz, the main square in central Munich. After boarding a train there, it’s approximately a 20-minute ride north to Dachau. The Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site was the first Nazi concentration camp in Germany during the Holocaust. It served as a model for all the other camps that followed it. See the photographs, documents, reconstructed cell blocks, crematorium, administration headquarters and much more on a tour of both the camp and museum. Find out little-known facts about the well-known Nazis linked to this site, like Heinrich Himmler, the guard who started the camp. And listen to the heart-wrenching stories of some of Dachau’s 200,000 prisoners — communists, German dissidents, gay men, Jehovah’s Witnesses, as well as Jewish and Polish men and women. It’s a chilling reminder of the events that took place here. After touring the site, return to the train station with the guide for a trip back to Munich. Following a break for lunch (own expense), take a Third Reich walking tour through the city. See where Hitler joined the German Workers Party, where the infamous German SS began and much more.

Our tour guide, Alun Evans, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Dachau and the atrocities committed in there . Having done the tour for a long time, he knew all the in and outs of the place and was able to guide us flawlessly, maximizing our time in there
As someone who traveled to Europe specifically to gain more knowledge about WWII, I cannot say enough good things about this tour and its guide. Alun was extremly engaging in one-on-one conversations and posed a great deal of insight about Dachau and the rise of the Third Reich. During the Dachau portion of the tour, Alun's descriptive narrative made it easy to visualize what prisoner life and conditions were like. He gave an hour of free time to explore the camp and visit the memorials at tour goers own pace which added more meaning to the visit. Walking through Munich on the Third Reich portion of the tour, Alun possessed an indepth perspective about Hitler's personal life to include day-to-day activities, his relationship with his inner circle, and his political development in Munich. Alun conveyed facts with a particular familiarity of the chain events that lead Hitler to become Chancellor of Germany in a concise and easy to understand manner that is second to none. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning more about WWII or if they're interested in history in general. I will definitely be going on Alun's other tours when I visit Europe again in the future.
