“Walking tour of Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

Yesterday we took this tour with our excellent guide Kevin.

We already knew this was going to be a long day - it's advertised as being a 6 hour tour - but although it WAS 6 hours, Kevin's well informed, detailed and very excellently delivered talks during the tour made the time whizz by, and it certainly didn't seem like 6 hours.

The memorial itself is somewhat disappointing as this one, unlike others in the old West Germany (ie Dachau), has undergone post war use and "sanitation" by the old communist authorities, meaning a lot of the artifacts and buildings are no longer there, which removes the "in your face" effect of the likes of Dachau.

Nonetheless it is still worth a visit, and if you are lucky enough to get Kevin as your guide you will learn more than enough, patiently explained, to make up for this.

We definitely recommend this tour.

“Berlin City tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

We had Dennis for this tours; the best tours we've ever had. Dennis really knows his history, is a great storyteller, and made Berlin come alive. From Hitler, burning of the books, religious history, Jewish History/tragedy, Bradenburg gate--many fascinating places & stories

“The third Reich Tour - led by Caroline”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Back in 1996 I took this tour for the first time and only went on this one because a friend had not done it before and was keen to see it all. I have done other tours in Berlin and Munich previously.
Caroline was way and beyond the best tour guide I have ever experienced. Her background knowledge, personal historical family involvement and

s well as the manner in which she set out the visit and the various stations was quite excellent. She fielded all questions with patience and expertise and gave us as much time as we needed at each stop.
I highly recommend her as a tour guide and hope that she is able to lead the Jewish Tour next time I visit Berlin.

“DO IT! BEST THING EVER IF YOU LOVE HISTORY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

I think I don't need to add much to the reviews below.

It's a great tour, not too long and not too short. You learn a lot and it's fun! Definitely recommend. Not sure about taking a kid with me, but it's definitely fantastic way of learning about Berlin and it's history for teenagers.
