This was a wonderful tour. John Jehrome was our guide and he was so knowlegable. He had such a high respect for the Camp and the history surrounding it. I did not read the important fact that told me I would need and ABC ticket, but we bought the proper ticket at the station before heading off on the train ride for the tour. The only thing I would emphasize that, in addition to the waling tour of the camp, you need to be prepared for a 15 minute minimum brisk walk through the town to get to the camp. My wife has a bad knee and that walk was hard for her. The camp tour was fine because we walked, stopped and talked throughout the length of the tour. The guides also recommended that we bring water and a snack to take during the break. All in all, I highly recommend this tour.
A truly memorable and somber experience, my tour guide Mike was excellent I would highly recommend this tour for any person as it highlights and informs about a part of history that should never be forgotten
The tour to Sachsenhausen was led by JJ who made the day very memorable and moving. His stories about the inmates experiences were capturing, fascinating and at times motivational. I visited this site before the fall of the Berlin Wall when the message was focussed on Red Army propaganda so it was good to see there has been investment in remembering those incarcerated here through a wider perspective, a message that JJ got over really well. I would thoroughly recommend this tour, enjoyable is the wrong word and enlightening does not give it justice... you have to experience the place before you can try to understand the suffering that occurred there.
Amazing. Jamie was very knowledgeable and it was fascinating to me - historical perspective. Be warned that the tour is 6 hours and lots of walking - about 80℅ outside. If u are ok with this then it is the tour to go on! Bring a sack lunch with you and appropriate clothing for the elements.
Rachel was awesome! Really knew her stuff, very friendly and organised! Definately recommend. Thanks
We had a great tour guide JJ or John he was well organised, really helpful and kept telling us where we were going and making sure that we all stayed in a group. The knowledge John was able to share with us about Sachsenhausen was raw, imformative, and truthful. I could only imagine what the prisoners in the camp went through it would have been the worst 6 years for those that were lucky to survive. I would recommend this tour- it really gave a lot of understanding to how terrible the holocaust was. Meeting point was easy to get too and John informed us to buy lunch at the station as there was no where to purchase food at sachsenhausen.
This was a truly unforgettable experience. We went on this tour from Berlin hoping to understand what happened by seeing things firsthand. Our tour guide Jared was absolutely amazing! He knew his stuff! He made sure to take the time to introduce himself, shared background information, and made everyone feel comfortable. Starting with the trip to the camp, which is about an hour trip using public transit, Jared was teaching us. We highly recommend this to anyone, and ask for Jared!

Visiting Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp was very emotional. Our guide Michael was very informative and told us interesting stories about the Holocaust and the II World War. I recommend to do this tour.
This was a great tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helped us to really know and feel what is would have been like at the camp. It is a very sobering part of Germany's history.
Michael did a fantastic job keeping our large group together and did an awesome job teaching our group!
While this tour was very heavy and sad, it was a must do. It was amazing to learn about what REALLY happened. Our guide, Brian, was amazing and very knowledgeable about everything having to do with the camp.
We had a great tour from Phil at Insider Tours. He was very passionate and knowledgeable, and he was able to answer all of our questions. We met with the group in downtown Berlin and took two trains to Oranienburg. Phil shared history and information with us along the way.
Check the weather before you book. We had a cold and rainy day. It's a 15 minute walk through Oranienburg from the train station to the camp, and many of the sights are outdoors. The exhibition spaces are restored buildings and barracks, so they get crowded, especially when it's wet out.
Pack a snack and water as well. There is a cafe on site but the tour didn't stop there, as there were so many things to see and learn about. The main points of interest are the restored Jewish barracks, the memorial obelisk- seen in most pictures, Station Z- where bodies were burnt, and the infirmary - where autopsies and human experiments were performed.
Our tour guide for the day was 'Jared.' He knew his stuff and it was amazing. It is definitely worth it.
Our guide Maria was absolutely amazing. So politically correct, full of deep knowledge for just about everything regarding the camp and its history and really helpful when I asked her recommendations on the bibliography available in the camp's library. I also appreciated her concern regarding our feelings, nutrition during the day and security. She was also very polite and she is the kind of person that are doing more than a job... She loves what she is doing and this reflects in the sparkle in her eyes and her willingness to bring hope into such a horrible place by speaking about the artists there and by telling us touching stories that took place there. If you have the opportunity to ask for a specific guide, I definitely recommend Maria.
Brian our guide met us at the zoo station and we all went to the concentration camp on the train. This was very helpful. Brian was a lovely man, very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of background info which helped make some sense to this atrocity.
It was a very cold dreary day and the subject matter was harrowing but I am glad I went. It is good to remind ourselves what can happen when anger and prejudice runs wild.
The tour was terrific - our guide Mike was extremely professional and dealt with the extremely moving experience with his ability to tell the history in a concise compassionate way. I highly recommend this visit
This tour was well worth a trip to. I did not know much about this camp but certainly did once I left it. Our guide Nikolai was a very lovely man and really know his history and the knowledge he had was great. He told us a bit about himself also which was interesting and nice to hear. Would advise you to do it but go with a tour guide.
We were so pleased that we took this opportunity and would recommend others to do the same. Brian was our tour guide and he made this day so memorable. He was so knowledgeable and presented the information with such care, we learnt so much. It was thought provoking and handled with dignity. Though l found it emotionally difficult at times I am so glad that we went and would highly recommend that you go if you can.
Jay was such a great tour guide. He has such a great personality and has a wealth of knowledge.
The tour is eye opening and the history is pretty intense but it is a must do.
JJ is a gem! His knowledge and obvious love of Berlin and history made our tour exceptional!
I knew very little about this particular concentration camp and our great guide JJ told us a lot of great information and a lot of the harrowing details that went on within this camp! highly recommended tour!
Whilst this tour was not a fun trip , it was a must do and our guide ( Jamie ) was well informed who relayed information about what actually went on brilliantly , i would highly recommend doing this trip
