This tour was very informative. Our guide has an extensive knowledge of history, and uses this tour to inform and prevent reoccurrance. Much better than doing this on our own.

Excellent tour. Good guide who shared good information about the site. Sobering experience realizing what we are capable of doing to each other when we allow politicians to create "others" within our society and then use that to divide us and pit us against each other.
