This was well organised .There is use of bus and train.All is co-ordinated and functions smoothly.Unlike the other tours,small numbers make for a very interactive time.Discussions are interesting and informative.There was a lot to ponder on during and after the tour.Throughout the tour Alun made sure we got to see every important feature of the Dachau site without being hemmed in by other tour groups.The attention to detail was much appreciated by all in the group.Would highly recommend this tour which allows for individual questions and clearly explains the site and its history. A respectful attitude is maintained throughout which is valued by those who may have personal and sad connections to this tragic place.

Hi Roger,
it can be challenging as a guide to do the Memorial justice in the bounds of a tour, because as you now appreciate you could spend three days there and still be coming up with questions. Therefore I am very happy that you felt you got value from it. My goal is that people return home with a desire to inform themselves more and address the issues that Dachau raise, the aim being to try and secure a better future. As they say from small acorns great oaks grow!

My husband and I signed up for the small-group Third Reich Walking Tour and it ended up being just us so it was perfect! Alun was prompt, extremely informative and engaging, and clearly knew his subject matter. The pictures he brought along of the various sites as they were during the Third Reich added so much to the tour. Really glad we did this tour. Highly recommended!

We just took this tour last week and were very pleased with Alun and his very knowledgeable and encompassing perspective of Dachau. He was waiting at the appointed meeting place for our small group to arrive and smoothly guided us through the metro/bus transportation to Dachau and back. He was engaging, encouraged questions, and gave us a much better understanding of what life was like in Dachau during this very bleak period. I would highly recommend this tour.

Many thanks for your review!
I really encourage interaction and questions on the tour because on a human level we need to talk these things through. Factual information is very important to take away but the human consequences of what happened and why it happened are what we need to meditate on. All the best!

I have not met a more informative tour guide than Alun Evans. He gave a superb tour of Dachau to us and six other people. He went at the right pace and was able to answer - and put into historical context - every question we had. Additionally, he is originally from London and speaks perfect English.

Was tired from a week of touring parts of Europe and was regretting booking this last tour at Dachau but glad we did. This tour totally surprised us. It was small in numbers and Alun answered all questions with attention to details. Alun did a excellent job of explaining why Dachau was created, the type of prisoners held there, the brutality they faced daily and the strange brainwashed sickness of their captors that all this was normal in their mind. He gave us time to explore on our own and take in this solemn place with respect for those that died. This would not have been done by touring on our own or in a larger group. Highly recommend Alun if you are in Munich. It will be well worth your time.

Hi Pat,
thanks for the review!
Im happy that you got value from the tour and that you feel it was worth the effort. It certainly is hard work being a tourist and getting everything in. I like to think taking a tour takes some of the stress out of all the logistics and planning ie. let the guide take care of it. Hope to see you again on a tour in the future.
All the best,
Alun
