A fantastic and sombre tribute to the memory of those who lost their lives at Dachau. James provided details on the rise and reign of the Nazi party which gave great insight into the formation of Dachau. A greatly respectful and educational tour. Highly recommend.

We took our 11 year old daughter, and she was fine with it.
