Dachau Education

Our tour guide, James, did an excellent job of providing history of Hitler, The Third Reich, the SS and much more before, during and after visiting Dachau. He was well organized and managed time well. He also helped many in our group on how to book other tours, trains, as well as restaurant recommendations. Highly recommend! Thank you James!

Informative and Respectful

James is a superb guide. He is very knowledgeable not just about what happened at Dachau, but of the political environment that led to the rise of Nazism. He managed to tell the terrible stories of Dachau while showing great respect for the many thousands of innocents who died there. This is not a fun trip but it is one that every human being should experience so that this kind of horror never happens again.

James was incredible! We have been on a lot of tours and he was by far the best tour guide we have experienced. He was organized and always a step ahead to make this a stress free journey that we thoroughly enjoyed. He is extremely knowledgeable about Dachau and was also appropriately respectful and considerate about the history of Dachau. I would give James 10 stars on this scale and strongly recommend his tour.

This tour is obviously not the most happy or cheerful, because it was still a concentration camp. Many people visit this camp, but I recommend you to do it with a guide, our guide James! He was wonderful, knew every answer to our questions, knew the story of the place by heart and also knew when to go where so that we are not mixed with other (louder) groups! The experience was very pleasant and I really recommend to go there with a guide and a small group! (1/2 day is enough)

James, our tour guide, was excellent giving not only the historical perspective, but also helped frame the gravity of the events and the social and humanitarian perspectives. A moving experience; and hard to believe it was really not that long ago.

James was an extremely knowledgeable guide. Highly recommend this tour, even though some of the images depicted and information provided at the memorial site are disturbing and may be upsetting for many people. I think it is important for people to be aware of what occurred in the hope that such atrocities should never again occur.

First of all, James, our tour guide was amazing. So knowledgeable. Second, it was a great tour of Dachau. A lot of original stuff at the camp. Everyone should see this to know about it and understand it’s importance in history despite the atrocities. James gave us a very detailed experience.

My family and I (3) had a wonderful tour to Dachau with James. There were 5 other people on the tour, and the small group atmosphere made it extremely easy to ask questions and learn a lot. Given that it was a very somber tour subject, James did a wonderful job keeping it respectful and appropriate. Although we didn't have free time to tour the museum on our own, James told us essentially the same information so I didn't feel like I was missing anything. I would definitely recommend this tour to friends!

Hi Jennifer, Thank you for leaving a review. Recently I have decided to keep the group size small to ensure all guests can easily communicate with myself and hear in the museum. Hope the rest of your travels went well.

James was an amazing guide. He was kind, caring and focus on our comfort and safety. He was compassionate while speaking about the horrors of the concentration camps, and blunt about the people who committed these atrocities. He was knowledgeable and friendly. While I can’t say that this is a “fun” or “enjoyable” trip due to the subject, James made this important tour as impactful and meaningful as possible.

James was an incredible tour guide who was very knowledgeable, accommodating, and communicative. He met us at our Hostel, organized all the trains and buses for us, and kept us abreast of his plans throughout the tour. He was very patient with us as we wandered through various exhibits in the memorial while also making sure to point out the most important items to review. Overall a great, humbling experience that I recommend to all.
