  • Our guide, Ronan, was just brilliant. Knowledgeable and approachable. A very sad and moving day but well worth it. Fascinating.

  • Awesome, emotional, moving...yes, depressing though a eye opener to what happened.
    Excellent historical references.
    Wow

  • A must when you are visiting Berlin. Somber at times but worth the trip. Prepare to be out most of the day. Excellent guide.

  • very sombre. interesting insight into the strategic planning of these camps

  • Was a good tour. Our guide Michael had a lot of knowledge about the concentration camp. He was also helpful and did his best to make things comfortable for the group.

    The tour felt a bit too long. There was a lot of walking, and too much standing around. Walking is actually better. Keeps you warm..

  • Absolutely fascinating...really was a walk back in time...and going on a wet grey day in January really accentuated the mood. Guide was fantastic - Mike. A must see when in Berlin

  • This was a super emotional and informative tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and the camp is definitely something everyone should see/experience.

  • The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. However, from the minute the tour started to when it ended, he didn't stop talking. Eventally, I switched off as it was more like a history lecture than a guided tour. What I felt the tour lacked was more information about the people who were in the camp and their daily lives giving a personal feel to it. There was not much to see but I felt the guide swept through the buildings quickly. A little disappointed.

  • Our guide for this tour, Michael, was outstanding. His knowledge of German history was impressive and he did an excellent job explaining the history of the camp and its place in the Holocaust. This was, of course, a very sobering experience. Having a knowledgable guide made it very valuable. He was also very friendly and personable guiding us on the trip from Berlin and back.

  • Very moving experance with a good guide. Tought my daughters how brutal war can be.
