Dachau tour

This tour had great potential with a knowledgeable guide, but in an environment like this with many groups in enclosed spaces, headsets are critical. The noise competition mad it impossible at times to hear our guide’s comments.

Lost in Germany

We were not given instructions once on the train. We were told to go upstairs and we waited for our guide to come get us. After an hour and 15 minutes we thought something was wrong. We went downstairs and could not find our guide, an older man. We were left on our own, which we figured out. Crossed the tracks to get to the other side took train back and found the camp by our self’s….

We took this tour on a blistering hot summer day. Our tour guide , Grit, was kind enough to mention to all of us to get water before we left. Super helpful . Because of the oppressive heat we all agreed it was a chore to travel to Dachau. It would have been better to simply take a coach bus to and from. Hopping on and off a bus and then a train was a large effort. However Grit our tour guide was amazing. Full of useful information and and knowledge . And we all agreed that her perspective on that time in history was outstanding . Thanks you

Terrible tour guide, not engaging and hard to understand
BruceBehrouz_H
, Aug 2022
The grounds are nice and Dachau is worth going to. Our tour guide was an older gentleman (did not even have a name tag) and overall terrible. He really did not want to be there. He was dry, not engaging, and spoke too softly to hear. He needs to carry a flag so that people can see him and a microphone so that people can hear him. He jumped from one thing to another while giving a tour. Did not offfer much of a tour. Quite disappointing. Do not recommend.

The whole day was exceptional; starting with our guide Keith; seeing the remnants of the place; how it is being preserved; how the prisoners lived; what they were forced to do and how they were tortured / punished for no reason The information was provided in a quite, caring way without hiding the horror of what happened.

I have been travelling for 3 months and this is by far the best thing I have done. It’s all thanks to our wonderful guide Keith who is just an expert on the former camp and German history. It was utterly captivating. If you’re visiting Munich, this particular tour with Radius Tours is a must.

Scott gave us an amazing tour! Very knowledgeable of the history of the Dachau and how Germany got to where Hitler and the Nazis were able to rise to power! An absolutely must for anyone who is in Munich or even in Germany. This history is important for all of us to remember! Very impactful. I’ve been to Auschwitz too, and this is different. Both are important to understand. This is where the concentration camps all started for Germany.

This tour is a “must do!” Craig was our tour guide. The way he presented the history through story was engaging and connected us to the emotional response we should experience as we learn about this point in history. We all agreed that Craig’s tour was one of our top events during our travels through Germany. The Scott Family
