This was my 2nd visit to Dachau. The first was 22 years ago, but not with a tour. James brought so much history and knowledge leading up to arriving at Dachau. He led us through Dachau with respect to what we were there to see. The small group was the perfect size. I highly recommend James and this tour!

Our guide, James, had a tremendous breadth of knowledge. He did a wonderful job of adding historical context and he struck the right balance of allowing the group to linger and take in the solemnity of the memorial, while keeping us on schedule. I would highly recommend this tour to any family of children 12 yo and older.

James is an excellent tour guide. His background history before we arrived at Dachau helped set the tone that this is a different tour, one that encourages you to feel the events as you walk along the same paths as those who perished from 1933 - 1945.

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!

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.

James, our tour guide, was courteous, personable, very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. I would highly recommend scheduling a tour with him.

Hi Steven, thank for taking the time to leave a review. I do like to keep the groups small to make it more personable as you mentioned. Regarding the humor comment you will find tour guides to be very charasmatic but naturally on a tour of Dachau there is no jokes or humor as such. All the best.

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.
