Great tour. We went on the tour with Ryan. There were about 30 people in our group. The logistics were so smooth. Ryan made sure we knew the exact plan and guided to Sachsenhausen by train with ease. He is one of the best guides we've had on this trip. Not only was he so well informed, he is a great story teller and painted us a picture of what life was like during this time period, told us insight into the events that led up to the imprisonments and murders, and some of the aftermath. Ryan clearly is passionate about German history and is well read on the subject. His enthusiasm and compassion made our trip so rewarding. Growing up Jewish and from a family whose relatives lived through this time period and were in the camps different camp I thought I knew most of what he would share with us - I was wrong. Ryan taught me a great deal and I was so moved by his tour. Thank you Ryan for what you do.

Pips was an awesome guide. She was very knowledgeable and informative. I am glad that we don't take this tour on our own as I think we would have missed a few things. It was a heavy day emotionally but I appreciate Pippa's commitment to ensure that people know what happened and never forget! This is so very important.

Lorna was a terrific tour guide. She was well informed with the facts of the concentration camp as well as other facts pertaining to the 2nd world war and the Nazi party. When asked questions, she had almost every answer and when asked her opinions, she shared he point of view freely. It was clear she is a history major and a very smart young lady.

My tour guide was Beth and she was incredible! She was very friendly and super knowledgeable - I think this company requires their tour guides to have a degree in German history which makes me confident that the information given was accurate. Although this concentration camp is now a memorial, you will still get to see the way prisoners lived and get a feel for the terror and brutality that occurred here. Our tour started on the outside of the camp talking about where the SS lived and trained before we went inside. There are 13 exhibits and we had approximately 10 minutes in two of them, therefore, if you want to spend more time reading and seeing artifacts, you will either have to stay behind at the end of the tour or come back another day. Personally, I prefer historical facts presented in more of a storytelling form and Beth exceeded my expectations in how she recreated the realities of the camp. She also focused on details such as the difference between Sachsenhausen and Auschwitz which I felt was very important. This tour requires a LOT of walking and comfortable shoes. If you have trouble with your knees or cannot keep up at a brisk walking pace, I recommend you visit Sachsenhausen on your own. Our group was significantly slowed down by someone with knee problems and it was slightly annoying since there is so much to see in so little time. Overall, a highly recommended tour when visiting Berlin!

It was a very enlightening tour, not exactly the happiest of all tours, mainly because of how devastating it was to hear the stories in the camp. But the tour itself was a breeze. Our tour guide was so awesome and very accommodating. Thanks for the tour!

Great tour although very thought provoking and traumatic at times. Our guide Sam was very knowledgable and spent a lot of time going into great detail regarding events of the war and what went in the concentration camp. Quite a walk from train station to the camp but well worth the money and effort.

My guide was Pip. I could not have asked for better. She was not just full of knowledge about her subject, but had the rare gift of imparting very complex historical concepts regarding interpretation, memory, meaning, and the use of space in ways that anyone can understand. Those who manage to take this trip with her will learn a lot more than just what happened where at this sad monument to human cruelty. Pip will tell them why it matters, how it came to be, what people have thought about Nazi crimes over time and why the Nazi bureaucracy was able to create a system where ever greater amounts of cruelty and caprice with human life were rewarded, rather than sanctioned.

I cannot recommend Pip highly enough.
