  • Very informative!

  • This was just an amazing trip! Our guide could not have been better, he was so knowledgeable!!!! Of course his degree is in German History, he is originally from Ireland, but lives in Berlin now. We watch the history channel all the time about WW II and the concentration camps, but learned things we did not know. His detail was excellent and we covered the whole camp. Be sure to take your own lunch which should be something you can eat in about 15 minutes, or while you're walking. It's a huge place and to get back to the train on time, he keeps you moving. We highly recommend this tour!

  • Guide was very knowledgeable and was committed to providing as much information as possible. We had previously visited three concentration camps and had done quite a bit of reading about Nazi atrocities but still learned a great deal about life in the camps.

  • This tour is totally worth it. Our guide, Phil, was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. It is only a 40-minute train ride outside of Berlin. There is lots of walking and little cover so consider the weather and dress accordingly. Highly recommended.

  • Our tour guide, Phil, was brilliant. We were a large group of 25 people and he made sure to cater for everyone. He was very knowledgeable with German history and took the time to explain every section of the concentration camp tour in details.

  • This was an amazing experience. Our guide Nikolai had an extensive knowledge of the camp and related the history of same in a very compassionate way. We felt quite a mixture of emotions as we walked the grounds where up to 50,000 inmates were once held. Would thoroughly recommend this trip. Note - you are on your feet for most of the day and need to walk for about 20 minutes to and from the train/station so need to have good walking shoes. Also need to take food and drinks as no shops at the camp. Very glad we did this tour.

  • I nice, school alike walking tour on intoduction on the history of the concentration camp that reassures my knowing on dictrationship and totalism :

    Thanks to the guide Joshua !

  • Jared our guide was information overload, but so interesting, giving us what life would have been like in this horrific place. Jared told stories of people who were in this concentration camp, which made it more personal. He was passionate and wanted each of us to have the best experience possible in such a place as this. There didn't seem to be much 'free time' to search out various buildings etc.
    A few train/bus connections to get there, but no worries. definitely recommend

  • My guide Michael did a wonderful job communicating the information and emotion of this historic place. I was educated and touched by his words.

  • The guide was very knowledgeable and gave us very much info, but talked too fast so I missed much of it.
    Too many groups on the site, and the time we hade there was too short, so what was told did not really get the chance to sink in.
