I was so glad I booked this tour. Rob Shaw guide made this one of the most memorable experiences of my trip to Germany. He is very passionate and knowledgeable. He was able to really make you imagine how things must have been. I love tour guides that really care about the subject they are showing people from all around the world. I feel like I left that tour with a deeper respect for the victims and a better understanding of how things transpired. I will say put on your walking shoes because we really walked pretty far that day but it was worth it.
I nearly allowed my experience to be tainted by a Scottish guide who automatically assumed I was angry when I asked a relative question because I was a black woman who was passionate about a subject! Horrific!
This is a must do when visiting Berlin. We had Rob Willis as our tour guide and he was amazing. He has so much knowledge and was able to tell us new facts that I have never heard before. Having a tour guide is a must for this experience.
I highly recommend this tour, especially if you can get tour guide DAVID to lead you around the site. He made my recent visit something I will never forget. He was very well informed and perfectly handled the difficult and sensitive issues of such an emotional experience. There is a lot of walking out in the open areas of the camp, so if you go in summer, bring an umbrella for some shade! M. Carpenter Houston, Texas
I did this tour with my mother in December 2017. Our guide was a girl called Beth - a welsh girl who now lives in Berlin. An excellent tour - informative and memorable. The guide's knowledge was amazing and very easy to understand. On the train back to Berlin, Beth took the time to check with all of us where we were going to - and advised us of train connections etc. I would highly recommend this trip.
