Excellent Tour Experience
, Sep 2021
James was an excellent guide and we were impressed with his knowledge of the concentration camps as well the history of the Nazis. Travel to Dachau via train and bus was easy and seamless. I would highly recommend this tour.
Excellent tour guide!

Our tour guide James was exceptional in his knowledge, descriptions and extra pieces of history. Because of his detailed sharing he was able to pinpoint areas within the museum, etc for us to focus on for photographs, etc. In this way he helped us all move along, feel and experience the entire camp in completion. We’d both recommend James with enthusiasm.

Great Guide

James was a fantastic guide for this tour. We used travel time on the train to discuss the historical background and throughout the memorial, James had interesting insights to share. A sobering experience due to the heavy subject matter, but an important tour to take. Definitely recommend.

Must do tour.

Guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Would have liked to stay longer as there is so much to read/see but Jimmy set proper expectations on timing and tried to guide us on what to focus on to get through main points. He also spoke to us during the train and bus ride on Dachau and Hitler’s history.
James brought Dachua to life

Good tour

Tour guide was great. Everything went smoothly! He was very knowledgeable and personable. Would recommend
Highly recommended. James, as guide, was great.

Recommend this tour if you are visiting Munich. Start place is easy to find & conveniently located. James was really good in covering as much history in the tour time. Visiting Dachau is a somber experience & James provided incredible insight. Adding half an hour more to let visitors read details at the memorial site would be a great idea. Everything else was wonderful about the tour.
