    We booked the private tour, and it was amazing! Our guide, Connie, was very knowledgable. She met us on time, and asked us if we want to even learn information on our way to and from Dachau. She provided a great insight, and we learned so much. The tour itself was incredible. A must-do in Munich.

    This is not an experience that is meant to be fun but it was so important and our guide, Monica, was wonderful. Her depth of knowledge is enormous and she allowed us to see everything we wanted, which was everything we could. We had our two early teen boys with us and they agree that it was an awful but very important experience. May we never forget and never repeat. So not miss this when traveling to Munich.

    Tour of Dachau Memorial Site was very impressive. Good guide with clear background stories. Very informative and many facts that were not known to me. The English tour was in clear English and therefore easy to follow. The guide also pointed us to the Altstadt of Dachau, which was well worth a visit. This is a bit higher, but the view is beautiful at Dachau Castle.
