Hearing the background stories of the place & the historical context specific to Dachau. For example, I was surprised to hear that Dachau’s population was only 6% Jewish people & that it mainly housed political opponents to the Nazis.

Our guide was Jake. He was excellent (and entertaining). So knowledgeable about the subject and history. Absolutely nothing felt scripted. This was one of the best narrated/escorted tours we’ve been on.

Jake was fantastic
Thomas_B

Jake was a wonderful tour guide who got to know each person on the tour. He knew a lot about the history of the Nazis and the camp itself, and he presented it in a very engaging way. He was also happy to make small talk on the train ride to Dachau. The camp itself was quite a memorable experience. Everyone should see a concentration camp at some point in his or her life.

Jake as your Dachau tour guide
Rebecca_C
, Jun 2022
Jake was our guide and we so appreciate that he was. He started out breaking the ice among the group with humor but when we arrived at Dachau he got personal - about his family history and that of his wife’s. knowing how real it all was for him and hearing his explanations of the chronology of the camp in terms of what it started out as and what it became underscored the intensity of the horror and the utter void in humanity during that time and in that place and in too many others. The weather was blistering hot, suffocating to stand in the open of the camp with no shade and a relentless pounding of unforgiving heat - which seemed appropriate. I wanted to be uncomfortable and miserable. I can’t imagine conducting a tour like that at all, let alone repeatedly, but with all of Jake’s disarming humor and charm - he did not miss the opportunity to convey how the unthinkable happened. Ask for him.

The tour guide (Mark) was very informative and interesting. He was also kind, attentive, and answered any and all questions, as well as gave good tips for spots to eat or visit in Munich. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to learn about this part of history. It was sobering, but Mark gave it its due respect, and educated us in an insightful way.

We had a wonderful tour guide named Mark who was very knowledgeable. This is a tour everyone should do. Most of the buildings are reproductions, but it doesn’t take away from what happened there. It’s a lot of standing and information, but you don’t get to see everything. The bus ride to and from was very crowded, but the train was nice. Would recommend.

This entire tour was excellent. Jason was an exceptional tour guide — he was able to share a wealth of information on the history of Dachau and made sure that we saw all of the major areas of the memorial. Without the insight and expertise of such a great guide, we would have missed so much in our time there — thanks Jason!
