Xavier, our guide was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and had our attention from the start. We had a few slow people on our tour, and he tried his best to keep everyone moving & yet didn't miss a thing even though he was running late. I wouod recommend going on this tour. Xavier was A++++.

It was a great tour, although a difficult one, because of the place (Sachsenhausen Memorial). The guide was amazing, told us the whole history, begginning with World War I, when we were in the bus, continuing at the visit and in the way back. As she said, it happened, it's history. Very good tour and very good guide.

Maria was a super guide and imparted so much information during the bus ride and while walking around the camp. Wish we could have had more time but alas our short holiday had come to an end. With excellent help from Maria we managed to catch our train to the airport too!!
