    If you're lucky like we were, Ralph will be your guide. He was well spoken and excellently presented the atrocities inflicted upon the prisoners at Dachau. He helped our group of 12 older teenagers from the United States understand the suffering the prisoners experienced by sharing the details of their torture and deaths without flinching. The stories of their deaths and survivals are horrific, but Ralph helped us by presenting in a professional and straight-forward manner. We highly recommend this company, and most of all, Ralph as your guide.

    It was a great tour, and we learned a lot about the history of Dachau, the Holocaust, and Hitler's Nazi regime. Our guide, Connie, was very well-informed and helpful. She did an amazing job taking us through the camp, was very respectful and sensitive, and gave a very thorough explanation of not only what happened in Dachau, but what occurred before, during, and after Hitler's rise to power and WWII. I would definitely recommend to anyone in Munich with a few hours to spend.

    We booked the private tour, and it was amazing! Our guide, Connie, was very knowledgable. She met us on time, and asked us if we want to even learn information on our way to and from Dachau. She provided a great insight, and we learned so much. The tour itself was incredible. A must-do in Munich.
