Our guide, Ronan, was just brilliant. Knowledgeable and approachable. A very sad and moving day but well worth it. Fascinating.

Our guide for this tour, Michael, was outstanding. His knowledge of German history was impressive and he did an excellent job explaining the history of the camp and its place in the Holocaust. This was, of course, a very sobering experience. Having a knowledgable guide made it very valuable. He was also very friendly and personable guiding us on the trip from Berlin and back.

This was a very informative walking tour. Our guide, Ronan, was excellent and really knew the history behind this tour. We would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to be more educated in this horrific part of history.

A must see for everybody. Things that happened there need to not be forgotten so we don't make the same mistakes again and so the people this happened to are not forgotten. A moving place and the guide gave a good overview of how things happened from the very start of this hideous part of history.

We met our tour guide Michael outside the train station, and got our train to the camp around 10.20. Make sure you take drinks and/ or food with you as you cant get anything at the camp. We were given a full introduction about what to expect on our tour from Michael who was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. We arrived around 45 minutes later and then walked to Sachsenhaussen camp, which was the best part of a mile away. Make sure you wear warm clothes and shoes if your going in the winter was the camp has very little heating or shelter available.
I dont want to say that I enjoyed the tour as it sounds glib but the information, facts and figures we had from our guide was great and it really made us understand the horrors that went on here. I find it very difficult to comprehend some of the tortuous acts that were thought up by another human being especially as this was a work camp and not an extermination camp.
The weather was rather cold and the windchill and rain were freezing and somehow it made us think about the extreme weather these prisoners had to bear. Its amazing that anyone survived the war at all.
The museum had numerous cabinets housing artefacts but we were unable to see them all as we were constrained to time, which was a shame. I would have liked the tour to be maybe an hour longer so all the items could have been viewed.
Our guide Michael was interesting, approachable and informative, questions were encouraged and no questions were left unanswered.
Our tour finished around 3.30 and we walked back to the train station. Unfortunately the train was experiencing problems and we had to get off but Michael supervised us all and helped us get on a bus and the underground train. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

Guide was very knowledgeable and was committed to providing as much information as possible. We had previously visited three concentration camps and had done quite a bit of reading about Nazi atrocities but still learned a great deal about life in the camps.

This was just an amazing trip! Our guide could not have been better, he was so knowledgeable!!!! Of course his degree is in German History, he is originally from Ireland, but lives in Berlin now. We watch the history channel all the time about WW II and the concentration camps, but learned things we did not know. His detail was excellent and we covered the whole camp. Be sure to take your own lunch which should be something you can eat in about 15 minutes, or while you're walking. It's a huge place and to get back to the train on time, he keeps you moving. We highly recommend this tour!

This tour is totally worth it. Our guide, Phil, was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. It is only a 40-minute train ride outside of Berlin. There is lots of walking and little cover so consider the weather and dress accordingly. Highly recommended.

Our tour guide, Phil, was brilliant. We were a large group of 25 people and he made sure to cater for everyone. He was very knowledgeable with German history and took the time to explain every section of the concentration camp tour in details.

This was an amazing experience. Our guide Nikolai had an extensive knowledge of the camp and related the history of same in a very compassionate way. We felt quite a mixture of emotions as we walked the grounds where up to 50,000 inmates were once held. Would thoroughly recommend this trip. Note - you are on your feet for most of the day and need to walk for about 20 minutes to and from the train/station so need to have good walking shoes. Also need to take food and drinks as no shops at the camp. Very glad we did this tour.

Jared our guide was information overload, but so interesting, giving us what life would have been like in this horrific place. Jared told stories of people who were in this concentration camp, which made it more personal. He was passionate and wanted each of us to have the best experience possible in such a place as this. There didn't seem to be much 'free time' to search out various buildings etc.
A few train/bus connections to get there, but no worries. definitely recommend

It is well worth the trip to Sachsenhausen. Our guide John, JJ was the best tour guide I have ever had and I have done lots of tours. He was full of knowledge and spoke loud enough so that everyone could hear everything. He really made the experience a 5 star visit. Sachsenhausen was the administrative head of all the concentration camps in Europe. You will leave with a heavy heart but satisfied that you had the experience.

The Tour was excellent. I enjoyed how Jared, our guide explained the human psychology behind the Nazi concentration camps. His pace was great as well. Lots of information and much to think about.

Very educational and emotional tour. Our guide Ronan was fantastic, very knowledgeable and personable. He took the time to get to know everyone in his group by name and took the time to talk to each one of us. He has a great understanding of the events of WWII and what went before. He tried to impart the idea that this is not a one time event, that feelings of prejudice and persecution are still with us today but perhaps not on such a scale. My family came away with a better understanding of world events and an awareness of what is still going on today. I would highly recommend this tour. Be prepared to walk and come prepared with water and snacks as there is nowhere to purchase anything in the camp area.
