We did the Combo Dachau and Third Reich tour with Jeff as our guide. Both were fantastic and unique in their own way. The Dachau tour provided a glimpse into what life was like in the camp and how it evolved over the years since its inception. Jeff gave the proper amount of historical background while allowing time to reflect and take everything in. After lunch we did the Third Reich walking tour. Jeff did a great job of telling us the history of Hitler and how his rise to power as we walked around the city viewing the sites where the major events took place. I highly recommend the tour and Jeff as the guide.
Our tour guide Achim was very knowledgeable and set the stage properly for our trip to Dachau. I feel like I got more out of the trip with him rather than self-guided. The tour around Munich was also really interesting. It’s a somber experience, but it’s worth doing. It really puts history into perspective and how events unfolded. It should be mandatory viewing for all so we can try to recognize and never repeat history.
My favorite part of this tour was listening to our guide Alun Evans share his extraordinary knowledge about the concentration camp at Dachau and its relationship with the other 80 concentration camps. My wife and I are World War II buffs, and I majored in history. We thought we knew much about the topic, but Alun enlightened us and cleared up many of our misconceptions. For example, we did not know that the Nazis built some 80 death camps, many more than we thought. Alun's commentary was detailed, insightful and passionate. Touring Dachau without the commentary would be a moving experience, but Alun significantly enhanced our experience. Alun has lived in Munich for many years, but he is a native of England. He was able to show us many sites in Munich that are not well marked where the Nazi party members conducted their business. Initially, I was concerned that we would not hold up well on a morning and afternoon walking tour. We are both in our mid 70s, but the pace of the tour was gentle with an hour lunch break between the tours.
Both the morning (sorry forgot his name) and afternoon guides (Josh) were very well informed and thorough. It was a very sobering experience
The Dachau tour was very informative and sobering. Mat, our guide, was very objective and knowledgeable. He was very professional. I would definitely recommend Mat and his tour.
I was very pleased with the Dachau tour. Steve was excellent in his presentation of the topic and provided insight on the issues related to the memorial site. I would recommend the Dachau tour for everyone. The afternoon walking tour of Munich was good. Dan was knowledgeable about history of the period. There were long periods of stopping and standing in one place which would be difficult for some. This tour could be improved with more stops and starts instead of standing in one place.
Steve was just absolutely fantastic as our guild. Perfect amount of knowledge and I really got a sense that he had a deep interest in the place he was conducting the tour.
Dachau tour guide, Heim, was excellent. He was knowledgeable/thorough, responsive/and patient with questions, and set the perfect tone for a very disgusting and sensitive period of history. Walking tour guide, Curt, was questionable. Certainly knowledgeable and humorous, but so practiced that information was overwhelming. I overheard him telling a couple how to avoid paying for the Viator Dachau tour. He said he was busy the day that they planned to visit, otherwise he would have taken them on the tour. Not professional in my opinion. We left the tour early.
Engaging. Informative. Immersive. This is an important and eye opening tour. If you come to Munich - this is a must. Both tour guides - Achim and Josh were great! They were passionate and clearly knew their stuff. They articulated clearly the sensitivity required for the topics discussed and were excellent at giving as much context as possible so we could fully understand the complexities of the history.
In the morning, our first guide, Carolla, took us by train to Dachau. Not only is it the first of the Nazi concentration camps, but it was also the model for the ones that followed. All the horrors were performed there, torture chambers, gas chambers, and crematoriums. Carolla detailed the history, and how it started as a jail for political prisoners and progressed to a death camp. Back in Munich, our afternoon guide, Josh, walked us, literally step by step, through the rise of the Third Reich, of Hitler and the Nazis. He took us from the failed Beer Hall Putsch to the actual site of book burning you must have already seen in documentaries, then to Gestapo Headquarters. He brought to life the goose-stepping parades and pointed out where Hitler stood with his arm outstretched in the Nazi salute. His passion for making us see and experience the march to ruin the Nazis took Germany left us in awe. He held nothing back when he detailed the persecution and murder of the Jews, then pointed out the irony that around the corner of where the Nazi headquarters once stood, is now the embassy of the State of Israel. You will not forget this day.
