What people are saying about Brandenburg

I went on the Sachsenhausen concentration camp tour and it was very informative and very interesting. My tour guide did a great job of keeping everyone together and helping us get to Sachsenhausen. He also did a great job of making sure we got bathroom breaks and we even got the chance to stop and get a snack. He was very accommodating. He really knew his stuff about not only the concentration camp but all the events during that time.
