    George was excellent. He knew the history of Sachsenhausen thoroughly and brought in many details when answering questions. He was passionate about the importance of remembering and keeping memorials in place and often would remind the group of the horrors mankind continues to inflict on each other since WW II through today. The tour is a somber reminder of past events and George kept a perfect pitch of describing and remembering. Thank you.

I would like to thank the tour guide Ronan once again for the excellent and thought-provoking tour. Ronan is indispensable because of his vast knowledge of history. The tour was important, remarkable, and interesting. I highly recommend taking this tour for anyone visiting Berlin.

Our guide, Ronan, is knowledgeable about the topic--just an excetionally well-read man and an excellent communicator. He made me feel comfortable immediately and kept the tour lively and interesting. I highly recommend him.

The drive in only one direction is very good. You can get off anywhere, stroll in the park or in the city and then get back on at one of the stations.

Very informative and great way to see the city. Good value as well as could use throughout the days I was here to get around the city!

Excellent day tour, fast paced, knowledgeable guide, fun group dynamics.
