    Take a 5-hour tour of the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial, a place of memory and of education. To visit it can be a challenge, but also a deeply moving and memorable experience. A professional guide, trained and authorized by the Memorial site, will organize all travel arrangements, taking you on the return journey by train and bus from Munich. You will get a comprehensive tour of the entire area, including all the surviving original buildings, the museum exhibition center, and the cinema, which screens an English language documentary film.

    It was an amazing experience. We had the best guide. His name is James and he’s really knowledgeable of all information regarding the tour. He was really nice, helpful and accommodating.

    Very sobering but wonderful tour. Our guide gave us historical info during the subway and bus rides to Dachau, which was very helpful. The bunk houses were closed but we could still see in. The museum is extensive and well laid out. I highly recommend this tour

Although a very sad experience given the circumstances, I really felt this was relevant to remind myself of what's important, and to always have the people who suffered in mind so that they're not forgotten. Never forget. Our guide was very kind and extremely well informed.
