  • "Learning in a classroom is one thing, but actually being at the location is very impactful." See review
  • "It was hard to hear him at some points - it would have been nice to have a microphone for him and headphones for us (other tours have used "Vox" devices - essentially a one-way walkie-talkie)." See review

Dachau concentration camp

A very informative tour with Mark. He gave us many details of the history of Dachau and experiences during the war. I found it a very good tour but would have liked more free time to view the displays Which were more visual then just talking about it. Unfortunately the barracks were shut down due to construction work at the site plus it was extremely cold and windy that day which was not good but not preventable. Overall I think this is a tour that everyone should experience and learn more about the atrocities of the time .

Our guide was very informative on the history before, during, and after Dachau. He walked us through some of the more important sites, and also pointed out interesting things to us. Very heavy topic that he did a good job of explaining. Definitely a site to see.

The tour guide was knowledgeable about the topic. He was thorough and welcome questions. He showed patience to those participants who English was not the first language.

Our guide (unfortunately I cannot remember his name - gentleman from England now living in Germany) was AWESOME. Great sense of humor despite the grim nature of our tour, very easy to talk to and ask questions of. So glad we had a guide for the experience - he offered a ton of information as we walked through, allowing us to soak it all in instead of spending time reading every post/document. Highly recommend.

With VERY little notice, the vendor cancelled my trip. This tour was very important to me, and I could not reschedule given my other commitments. I lost the opportunity to see the most important element of my overseas trip. Very disappointed, This was the second cancellation for a similar trip with Viator.

Keith, our guide, did a wonderful job sharing his knowledge and history of Dachau. It was stunning to see first hand what we have read and studied over the years. We have been to Holocaust Memorials (Washington D.C. and Skokie, Illinois). Being at Dachau brings it to life, including the barbaric cruelty, pain, suffering and death of the prisoners. It is worth the visit and highly recommend it. Thanks Keith.

Only about a quarter of the original site remains and a substantial part of that is a reconstruction. The tour itself was far too much lecture about the overall nazi era and left insufficient time for viewing the various displays and points of interest. It completely bypassed the memorial to Jews that has been constructed save for a “it is over there” (100 meters distant) reference. I thought that the tour could be done in two hours rather than the 3.5 it took to march to the guide’s strict schedule of mini lectures that contained what I felt was far too much common knowledge and sometimes repetitive parts. The guide worked hard but I found the experience tedious. If you cannot go to a different camp to witness this awful piece of human history then go on your own, rent the recorded audio guide and save both time and money. Honestly, Dachau itself seemed to me more a place where some people were trying to remember as little as possible about the society’s responsibility for this disaster. That includes naming it “Dachau memorial” site. Sounds nice. Who can find fault with that? But in the name the real lesson of the place is lost. It should be called the Dachau Political Repression and Legalized Murder Camp. And the entirety should be reconstructed, state supported, with private profit prohibited.
