Chloe was our tour guide and she was exceptional! She did a terrific job of accommodating everyone in the group (one person needed a wheelchair) and explaining everything she showed us and answering all of the questions the group had. I would go on another tour with her! Very polite, friendly and personable.

This is an excellent tour. The guide Ariel was extremely helpful in terms of giving extremely interesting information regarding the concentration camp. I have been to Berlin a few times and this was by far the best trip I have had when here overt there last 4 occasions visiting. The transport was handy and easy.

Really informative we had Cian as our tour guide. He just knew so much about the camp, the history of WW1 & II and Berlin. Really interesting and informative tour. Sachsenhausen itself was huge and really gave me the feeling of imprisonment. If you are in Berlin and would like to know more about how a nazi camp worked you should definitely go on this tour!
