Everyone Should Take This Tour
Georgette_T
, Jul 2022
Anyone who is visiting the Munich area needs to take this tour. It is so important for preserving and understanding history on a much deeper level. Learning about these camps in school is one thing, but there is no comparison to stepping foot on the site and seeing what remains of the atrocities firsthand. Alun was a phenomenal tour guide. He was a wealth of information and clearly understands how to treat such a sensitive subject. We came away from his tour feeling all the emotions one might expect, yet we enjoyed the experience and will never forget it.

Outstanding because of Alun
Julianne_S
, Jun 2022
Alun advised and directed us expertly. I had concern of spending 3 hours at Dachau but the time went quickly and was well spent. My 19 yo daughter said Alun was the best tour guide ever, knowledgable, passionate and related the lessons learned to the present. Thank you Alun.

It was great to meet you and your daughter and I am delighted that you both got value from the tour. If people leave the Dachau memorial inspired to do more research on the subject then I am very happy. All the best.

Alum is an experienced guide. He lead us to and through Dachau providing history lessons the entire time. The tour was a perfect length - starting at 9 and ending by 1 p.m. The subject matter is heart breaking and Alum was appropriately sensitive and respectful and encouraged us to be as well.

Great personal tour
Cblindley
, Aug 2021
We were so fortunate to visit Dachau under the amazing guidance of Alun Evans. He was punctual, engaging and passionate about his vocation. We traveled by public transportation to Dachau on a day there was a strike by railway workers. Alun was careful to assure we were not left in the lurch regarding transport. We arrived and entered Dachau accompanied by Alun's interesting narrative regarding WW II, Germany and camp history. After an emotional and sobering tour of the Concentration camp we were given ample time to tour the Museum...even had enough time to grab an ice cream before heading back to Munich. Can't recommend this dedicated guide enough. Alun is terrific.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Thankyou for your review. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and guide you at the Dachau memorial. One of the positive aspects of taking a tour when travelling, is that your guide takes responsibility for the logistics. When something happens, like the strike we encountered, it is reassuring to know that you have someone who understands what is going on and can negotiate the situation. I am delighted that it all worked out for us on the day. All the best.
