“A great tour of Dachau”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We booked this tour with James based on trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed and ended up with a private tour. James met us at the train station promptly at the agreed upon time and we took a train to Dachau. He began the tour on the train providing much background information. At the sight he provided a comprehensive tour with the sensitivity needed for such a place. Overall, it was an excellent and moving tour. It is still difficult to come to terms with what happened there and at other concentration camps but we believe it is a reality that we all must acknowledge. We highly recommended this tour with James. We also recommend that you do not do this tour as the last part of your trip to Munich. A visit to a few beer halls helps to recover....which we did!
As a side note, James assisted us after the tour with the train schedule and helped us purchase tickets to the airport for the end of the week. All went smoothly. He also recommended Ayinger Restaurant. It was excellent and ended up being our favorite restaurant in Munich Thank you for everything, James!

“Making sense of the incomprehensible.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

My husband and I had the pleasure of taking a Mike's Bike Tour of Munich with James on a Monday. When we mentioned that we were planning to go to Dachau later in the week, we were pleased to find that James offered a private tour. We and three other people took the tour on Wednesday. James began his tour on the train ride to Dachau, giving us background history. At the site, he led us through the buildings with a great deal of sensitivity and historical knowledge. One can take a self-guided tour, but having a guide like James provides the opportunity to have your questions answered with intelligence and insight.

“Keith”

Our tour guide, Keith W. was outstanding in his knowledge of the history of Dachau and his ability to provide detailed answers and explanations to all questions. I would highly recommend this tour and especially Keith as a tour guide.

“Great Experience ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

James has an amazing wealth of knowledge and helps you understand what happened there.


Meet at the train station at 9:30 am. Helps to call him so he expects you. James will take you by train and a short bus ride to Dachau where he walks you through history and teaches you about everything without being biased. It is simply to educate. Great job James!
