Overview

Dachau is one of the most well preserved camps in all of Europe and a visit to a camp should be on every travelers itinerary. Dachau was the first camp set up in NAZI Germany, was the model for all other camps and was the only camp running for the entire 12 years of the Third Reich. This authorized full tour of the Dachau Memorial is a half day tour traveling via train from Munich at 9:30 and arriving back approximately 14:30. Your guide will not only explain in detail the horrors of the camp system but the plight of the various victims that suffered under this brutal system of murder and oppression, the rise of the NAZI party and many other events that took place throughout the 3rd Reich and World War 2. As we are a small independent company we go above and beyond to give our guests a memorable experience. Our small group tours have a maximum number of 14 guests per tour ensuring a personable experience.

    Very informative tour of the Dachau site. Keith is very knowledgeable about this subject. We learned a great deal about the former concentration camp. At times the presentation did get a bit wordy.

    Our guide was amazing. He shared a lot of history and was very involved with each one of us. He did a great job on a very somber time of history

    Mat is an amazing guide- provided so much history and context for the events that took place at Dachau.

    James was a wonderful, informative and considerate guide for such an emotional tour. Thank you James.

    James was very personable and knowledgeable and was excellent on the logistics from Munich to Dachau and back (including train, bus and site entry). In general the information he provided was very good and we learned a lot. We only wish the tour was a bit longer (30 minutes would have worked) - it got a bit rushed in the middle especially moving through the main building where there was a lot of information and exhibits that were only spoken to at a very general level.

    My wife and I enjoyed this 1/2 day tour. The guide James was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot from it!! Thank you again James!

    This was as good as a tour like this can be. Tour guide was great. We had issues due to trains not working because of bad weather … keith figured it out for us through alternate means of transportation.

    Having a tour guide to show us around the camp and explain things to us was the best part. He also made sure we weren’t wasting time and he was very knowledgeable about everything there. Our tour guide was James and he was such a great speaker, made sure we were on time and answered all of our questions. He was also very respectful of the site and made sure everyone understood the gravity of the horrors that happened there.

    Our guide, James made our trip super smooth and as enjoyable as possible given that we were visiting a concentration camp.
