The half day Dachau Concentration Camp tour was excellent and Monica was an excellent tour guide and I learned quite a bit on the horror that went on in this place. She was very knowledgeable and patient with such a large group and I got a lot out of the tour.

No amount of studying in schools, reading of books or watching of documentaries can ever truly prepare you for the reality of walking through the gates at Dachau Concentration Camp. Arriving at the visitor center and walking the path toward the entrance to the camp you can almost feel a change in the atmosphere, as if the spirits of those who suffered here still haunt the grounds. This is not a tour for those who are looking for a light and easy walk into history. This is a tour where one cannot help but so some self-reflection on our attitudes toward life and others. Our guide was incredibly well informed and knew so much of this history of the camp. You could see how the story he told behind each stop affected him and thus, affected us. Some on our tour had relatives who were imprisoned here, others had relatives who were among the liberation forces who freed the camp. This tour is an eye opener even for those who have deeply studied WW II and the terrors of the concentration camps. Even more frightening was to learn how quickly and easily the camps were established and hidden in plain sight. If you are ready to learn, truly learn and reflect on just what impact Dachau had on the course of human events, and nearly could have had on our existence as we know it, then this is the tour for you.

Our guide was exceptionally knowledgable, and she guided a large group smoothly through the public transport, and through Dachau.
