Excellant dutch guide Tom. Comfortable bus and very good cafe for late lunch. As for the camp its well worth a visit to see what happened. I shant say it was a great trip because that is the wrong word but very eye opening to the nazi regime
Our guide Tom was very knowledgeable on Vienna as we departed the city on our way to Mauthausen. Our journey to Mauthausen didn't seem long and it helped to view the video on the memorial prior to arriving, there was much to see more than what we were able to take in, the only thing we weren't able to see was the stairs which happened to be closed being it was winter. If you visit Vienna, a day trip to Mauthausen should be one place to see not for young children.
Very glad I went on this trip. The guide was very nice. I went with my husband and there was one other person on the bus. We watched a video on the way up and had the audio guide to use when we got there. There was not enough time scheduled to walk around. We were very rushed since we looked at the memorials when we got there and then went inside the camp. On the way back we stopped for lunch. We could have used some of the time for walking around the camp.

Went on a cold, wet, dreary day...but the van driver had umbrellas and wa filled with facts there and back. This tour is self guided and has a large amount of walking. Extremely well done while presenting the details of some of the most horrific historical acts. It is an emotional journey. The drive there and back is filled with facts about Vienna. A nice lunch option is provided at your own expense. I highly recommend you not miss this tour if you are interested in history and have a day to spend.
Excellent tour. There was only 6 of us on the tour which made it easy to ask questions and meet people with similar interest. The guide was very knowledgeable. He was able to answer all our questions and he provided an ipad for us to look at on the way to the camp so we knew what to expect when we arrived. This was really good and helped in making the best of the tour. It was a very interesting but sad tour but well worth a visit
You have to go here to see this place to understand what happened in this grim part of history. The guide was fantastic and was simply a wealth of knowledge. Well organised and a must do. Put Mauthausen on your bucket list.
We did 3 Viator trips during a recent trip to Germany/Austria. This was, despite the subject matter, our favorite. Likely because it was small, had 3 hours at Mauthausen, and Pierre, our host/driver, was knowlegeable and gracious. He even dropped us at our hotel when returning to Vienna. This trip is worthwhile.
What a somber, but incredibly insightful and amazing day. I ended up being the only person who had reserved, so I got a private tour of sorts! Pierre was awesome - we had many great discussions, about the Holocaust and about history in general. He was very patient answering all my questions and he was so sweet. This tour was one of the highlights of my trip. I would definitely recommend visiting the Mauthausen Concentration Camp.
Excellent trip! Our driver was very knowledgeable, entertaining and considerate of everyones needs restroom breaks, at Mauthausen he made sure we were set up with our headsets and maps then kindly left us to tour on our own. Moving at our individual paces and interests was more to my liking and appreciated. Afterwards lunch at an excellent restaurant with authentic Austrian food, was a treat. Great tour, highly recommended.
It was a sobering experience, but well worth the time. We would have liked to have spent more time in the museum. There was so much history to peruse. It is hard to believe such a place existed and horrible to hear what they did to the people.
This tour was excellent. We were picked up in a coach with ac and during the trajectory we had the opportunity to watch a documentary film about that part of the history. Later on, when we arrived to the concentration camp we were able to see the place at our own pace. It is a sad place were you can learn a lot about the detrimental things that were done down there.
The guide was very knowledgeable about Vienna and all travel to the concentration camp. Along, with information on the concentration camp.
Eye-opening day out! Everything was very well organised throughout the day and the ride was extremely comfortable as well!
Our guide,who drove us up and down, was very friendly and explained the scenery as we drove past as well.
Highly recommend this tour for anyone who loves a bit of history.
Great tour. Bus driver very knowledgeable about Vienna and it and #39;s history.
A very difficult albeit very enriching day. We really appreciated the video in the van en route which prepared us well for what we were to see. Also very pleased that we had time to ourselves with the audio guide rather than being led around as one group. Time there was perfect. Stopping for lunch with the group on the way back was helpful for de-briefing and relaxing. Excellent tour that everyone should take.
We met Tom our guide and were picked up in a Mercedes Van very nice which was equipped with I pads for each passenger. Wifi and comfortable bucket seats. We drove for a hour and 45 minutes, and were entertained by watching a video about the concentration camp which gave us some background and history well done. Tom was very informative and happy to answer any questions. We were given approx. 3 hours to tour the Concentration camp, which was sad and interesting all at the same time. On the way home, we stopped at a very nice restaurant. Great day, Tom was the BEST!
