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
Our tour guide Jared was well informed and provided a great insight into the camp and the times. he was patient, professional, respectful and answered all questions.
I would recommend this to everyone.
A wonderful experience with a great 'Irish' tour guide. I had never been to a concentration camp before, and , although sobering, it was tremendous.
excellent but sad. Guide was great and this was a well organised tour
Michael was so knowledgable on the camp. You felt that you could ask him anything and he would know the answer. Brilliant experience. A long day with a lot of walking but well worth it.
