  • This was a private tour, just 2 of us as a couple, and Rick, our guide an American, living in Berlin for 7 years was very nice and extremely informative with his knowledge of this subject. He met us outside our Hotel and we walked to train station to catch a couple trains to get where we had to go. A lot of walking g, which we love, and you get on and off public transport plus use stairs. All up it was 6 hrs 10am to 4pm and Rick made sure we got back to our hotel with the correct trains, and deposited us at our front door again, which was Awesome! It was a beautiful day wouldn't recommend it on a rainy day and even though we moved through things fairly quickly at the camp, it was enough with Ricks running commentary, and if we had really wanted, we could have stayed on after it finished, or finished up somewhere in town, Rick gave us that option. We chose to go back to the hotel. He then kindly wrote down all the info we needed via trains/buses, for us to get to the airport the next day, which proved invaluable! Just one thing, I think the ticket needed for the trains to get there and back, should have been included, rather than us having to buy them on the day. Even though they were only 7.70 euro each, it would have been a nice touch

  • Our tour guide happened to be a fill in for the usual guide that day, so I can't speak for the usual guide themselves. However, the guide who brought us, Sam, gave us the history behind each quarter, and allowed us time to view the entire museum segments as well. We especially liked this, because you can miss a lot of info if you don't go into the museums. The one thing I would mention - if you or your family is hardcore history buff, I would recommend a full day. 6 hours didn't cut the amount of information that you can read / listen to there.

  • Entire trip was well organized from start to finish. Jonny was a most knowledgeable and experienced guide. He shared a wealth of information, bringing as much emotional understanding of one of the world's most tragic and shameful periods of history. Will use the service again. Worth every penny.
