A valuable, thought provoking and informative experience. It has left me a lot to think about and I particularly valued Eric's drawing analogies with current events in the world today. Eric was outstanding and he put a great deal of effort, and extra time, into giving us very comprehensive and sensitive and thought provoking explanations.

A great tour that's sure to add the right historical perspective to your trip in Munich. Harrowing, yes, but necessary, especially for anyone who appreciates history. Our tour guide Tom did a great job of telling the story of Dachau, throughout the prewar to postwar periods. He condensed what felt like years of his own academic background into the half day we had for the tour. Would recommend to others!

Scott is one of the best guides we have come across in our travels. He was well-versed in Nazi Germany history - and I really enjoyed picking his brain about the topic. There is so much to learn about this time in history and Scott was a great guide into those difficult times in German history. Thank you! Alexa :)
