Best tour I’ve ever taken part in
Faith_L, Mar 2023
Alan is by far the best guide I’ve ever listened to in decades of traveling thru Europe. I’ve done Dachau 2x over the last 15 years & believes nothing was left to learn, only booking this so my partner could get a detailed guide of the site as we walked thru. There’s not a single flaw in Alan’s way of communicating the past implications of Dachau’s existence as he effortlessly gets you to think about the importance of staying conscious of the repetitive nature of history. He was made to do this tour, do yourself a favor book, you’ll reap benefits way after the visit is done.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks a million for your positive feedback. It is really important to me that people get value from their tour.
This was an eye opening...
Barry_D, Mar 2023
This was an eye opening experience in to such a heavy subject. Our guide, Alun, was not only extremely knowledgeable about Dachau he delivered the information to our group with appropriate reverence.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks Barry! It was great to meet and talk to you on the tour.
Highly recommend this trip - incredible
Alison_M, Dec 2022
This was an incredible experience and so well done thanks to our guide Alun Evans. He is professional, is an absolute expert extremely organised and friendly highly recommend this tour- a must do and must see. This is a hard topic to process but Alun makes this trip that much easier to handle and we learnt so much, clarifies everything- can’t thank you enough Alun we had an amazing time with you and your group.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Many thanks Alison! Delighted that you found the tour informative. I wish you all the best in the future.
Well worth the extra money to get the most from this experience
Tim_C, Dec 2022
Thank you Alun for an excellent tour. You managed to very sensitively tell the story and history while also giving us time to think about how we might respond now and in the future to help make the world a better place. We appreciated the small tour group (12 in our group compared with other groups walking around of 30+ people) so that we had time to reflect and ask questions. I highly recommend this small group tour to others who want to make the most from the experience of Dachau.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks so much for taking the time to review your tour. Having plenty for people to reflect on is certainly one of the aims of my tour. All the best with your future travels.
Amazing Tour and Tour Guide
Sheldon_G, Dec 2022
Alun was absolutely phenomenal! Giving him 5 stars is not enough. He has a plethora of knowledge that is unbelievable. I have learned history over the years, but he taught me so much more. We were a group of nine, so it was intimate and friendly. I never thought I would go to a concentration camp in my lifetime, but this is definitely something everyone needs to do.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Your humbling review is greatly appreciated. Thanks a million for your feedback.

Absolute must. Great tour guide. Education is power
Kim_E, Dec 2022
I know you can do this trip on your own from Munich, but I dont regret doing this tour with a guide and with Viator. Our Tour guide was so knowledgeable and insightful. Made sure we got on the right train and bus to Dachau. When we arrived he was wonderful about making sure we had time to take it all in on our own, but took the time to explain what we were seeing and the atrocities of the events that took place here. The history of why this place was built, what the initial purpose was and what it evolved into. There were time I was so overwhelmed with emotions I needed to step away. I thought I knew alot about WWII history and the rise in Nazis in Germany and in Europe, but wow did I learn alot more. I would not hesitate to take this 1/2 day tour. It is a must do on a trip to Munich. History is our knowledge to power and how we learn to never allow anything like this to ever happen again. Great guide, great tour.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thankyou for taking your time to submit a thorough review. I am delighted that you value the benefits of taking a tour rather than going to the Memorial on your own. All the best with your future travels.
Fascinating and enlightening tour!!
Adam_C, Dec 2022
Alun was an excellent tour guide. He was professional, knowledgeable, and appropriately reflective for the subject matter. I am so glad I came on the tour. It was the perfect length as well, and we did not linger too long or have to rush.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Really happy that you got value from the tour. Thanks for taking the time out in your day to submit a review, it really helps both myself and those that are considering coming on my tour to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site.
Shelley_H, Dec 2022
Alun Evans was a remarkable guide. Exceptionally knowledgeable, professional and courteous. The tour itself was an incredible experience.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
I am delighted that you got value from your tour to Dachau. Have great travels in the future. All the best.
Small group tour of Dachau
Patrick_S, Dec 2022
Alun met us at the meeting point exactly as expected. Even though we took public transportation, our tour group was small (8 people) so it was no problem at all. Alun was very friendly, and very knowledgeable about Dachau, and we would never have learned all we did by walking around ourselves.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Many thanks for submitting a review. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
Great Tour
Michele_M, Dec 2022
Alun was very knowledgeable and provided us with grest information. He also gave us some free time to explore on our own. A well paced tour.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks a million for taking time to review. Yes, striking that balance between guided and free time is key to getting this tour right I feel. Typically, my portion of the tour takes 2hrs with an hour in the museum to finish the trip. Of course further research is a great way to move forward.
Donna_M, Nov 2022
Tour was intimate since it was a small tour group which made it enjoyable. Guide (Alan) was incredibly knowledgeable and personable.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Small groups are the way to go. Thanks for submitting a review and your time is really appreciated.
We just spent 4 weeks in Europe and this was the best tour.
vicki_m, Nov 2022
The tour guide did an excellent job of explaining the story of Dachau; what led up to its creation, its own transformation through the years of its existence and the aftermath of its demise. He did all this without sounding like a history professor but rather someone who is passionate about sharing something that is important to us all.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thanks Vicki, great to meet you on the tour. Really happy that it was to your satisfaction.
Great guide, great tour
Ryan_B, Oct 2022
Excellent guide. Very knowledgeable. Easy transportation there and back. This was my second trip here and I enjoyed this visit more. It was a good mix of guided tour with a little free time to explore on your own.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Really happy that you got value from the tour Ryan. Thanks fror taking the time to review it.
An eye opening experience
Roslin_S, Oct 2022
It was an eye opening experience. We had a clearer and better understanding of the history. Alun did a good job in explaining and providing information to our group. We can imagine the condition of the prisoners from the way he explained of the place. The group is small, hence, better interaction with Alun. Highly recommended to join his group.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Hi roslin, thanks for taking the time to review. continually I am being told that the smaller group size is greatly appreciated.. Delighted that you were happy with your tour.
Somber but small group educational tour with Alun is the way to go
Ed_N, Oct 2022
First time visiting a concentration camp, approached with a little dread because of the horrific history, but also felt like a necessary tour. Alun is a fantastic tour guide, easy to find at the meeting place then taking us on the subway to Dachau and bus to the site. It's a bit of a zoo at Dachau station with so many other tourists and groups and even school field trips but Alun did an amazing job keeping us all together and moving. He also did an amazing job at the camp. He told us lots of stories at numerous places we stopped along the walking tour, treating the horrific subject matter with dignity while giving us the details. Alun is a nice guy, articulate and easy to understand, and also provided us free time to walk through the museum. I saw some of the other tours were kind of big - small group with Alun is the way to go.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thanks for taking the time to review. Many are hesitant to go and visit Dachau memorial, understandable as it is a very heavy subject to deal with. Like yourself, everybody comes away feeling that it was worthwhile and I am delighted you got value from the tour.
A proper tour of Dachau
Juli_B, Oct 2022
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and presented with respect what we were seeing. It was a tour of 13 people, and he did a good job of making sure we were all together on the train and bus.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Delighted that the tour was to your satisfaction. I believe small groups are definitely the way to go. Especially for such an important tour.
Great Tour
Sayeed_K, Oct 2022
Excellent guided tour and not too big of a group size. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and had everything well planned out. A memorable and sobering visit to Dachau.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Your review is greatly appreciated. Thankyou.
Great tour!
Patrick_J, Oct 2022
Alun was my guide and he was excellent! He was very informative and educational. I would highly recommend Alun and this tour if you’re staying in Munich!
