    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 met at the Juliet statue which is located just off the Marionplatz in the heart of Munich. Once the group starts to show up, he will identify himself and you will all go together to the train station.

    We took our 11 year old daughter, and she was fine with it. James, our guide, was very conscientious of her when presenting certain material and would let us know if she might want to step to the side during the tour. We... More
