A Very comprehensive, well organised tour. Leave a lot of time for the museum, which needs a good 2h30 at least.

A must do if you visit Munich
Oct 2021 • Couples
Alan is a great guy. He is very helpful, extremely passionate and educated about the Dachau concentration camp and the Nazi regiment in general. He provides useful insights at each sight of the camp, stuff that require research and a person could not know alone. He has a photo album to provide a better understanding of each part of the tour which is actually a great element that adds greatly to the tour. His schedule is very well timed and calculated without pressure nor unnecessary waits. Alan also provides the transportation tickets so you won’t have to and accompanies you all the way back and forward on your trip. All and all, his 15 years of experience doing this tour are more than obvious and you won’t feel the sentiments that will shock you at this site at full extent unless you have someone like Alan to guide you through it.

Thankyou for your humbling review. I realise that people may only make one visit to one of these emotive places and I take the responsibility very seriously. I know that all the licensed guides feel the same and see it as a privilege to educate people at the memorial. All the best!

Thanks Yolanda, I am delighted that you got value from the tour. I think the value of an in person tour is that interaction. The possibility of generating interesting conversations around the subject, I believe adds greatly to the learning process at the memorial. All the best!

Real and raw. Deeply powerful.
Oct 2021
Highly recommend this tour for the experience of deeper learning when visiting Dachau. I'm glad we went with a guide instead of wondering on our own. Alun was so informative about all aspects of the camp and its functioning from its inception to decades beyond liberation. Details were real and raw, while bringing a great respect for the prisoners and victims at the camp. Alun considerately provides time to view and take in various spots around the camp in addition to bringing a wealth of knowledge. He also made travel to and from the camp a breeze.

I really appreciate you taking the time to review my tour to the Dachau Memorial. Indeed the factual information on the tour is vitally important but I also try to go a little deeper than just pure facts. I feel the message and lessons of Dachau are more powerful when people are encouraged to self reflect. I believe it is important to provide context from the perspective of the victims and the perpetrators of the crimes. Approaching the topic from different perspectives gives us a more holistic understanding of the camp system on the macro level. I wish you well.

Difficult subject, but a must...
Oct 2021 • Solo
The Dachau tour was perfect start to finish. Alun was timely, attentive, friendly, well informned on the subject matter and an overall professional. Dacchau itself is sobering and almost overwhelming if you allow it to be, but a must for historical reference. I highly recommend.

Thanks for your review Rod. It was great meeting you and I enjoyed our discussions on various topics. It is true, Dachau can be overwhelming. The sheer scale of what happened in such a short period of time is difficult to comprehend. Also as we discussed, how people can be mobilised in great numbers, to contribute to the events that took place. Sobering for all of us and an opportunity to reflect on how we would respond in such circumstances. Good luck with your martial arts and travels and I wish you well.

Power of "indoctranation" of the human soul

Alun was very informed, he obviously has invested his time to learn and understand the history and the mind set of the prison guards. He really presente excellent word picutures so you could begin to grasp the history and what went on here. Well done1!

Really appreciate your review. The focus of the tour is on the plight of the victims but I believe we have to look at the perpetrators as well. I recommend a great book by British historian Christopher Dillon 'Dachau and the SS. a schooling in violence' Shocking how people can compartmentalise their lives and carry out heinous crimes on their fellow human beings. Highlights the vulnerability and malleability of the human condition. I wish you well.

Dachau with Alun is a 10/10 experience.
Oct 2021 • Couples
Dachau is a piece of history that is full of the dark and twisted works of the Nazi's before and during the second world war. If I was to go and see this myself without a guide, I wouldn't of taken in everything that was here.
Alun's Tour added the right amount of information as you walk around this eerie yet breathtaking place. Giving you a taste of the experience the prisoner and the SS went through in the camp. As well as giving you brief talk about Dachau as you travel down from the meet point.

Once he has ended his section of the tour. You get a hour to look through the museum before you reconvene to head back to the Marianplatz. the museum is pack full of stuff but an hour is just about the right amount of time to see it all.

So I highly recommend Alun tour as your only tour you do in Dachau. Highly worth it at a really good price.

Thanks Jared for your review. Yes, the museum time is a very popular part of the tour. That is the general feedback that I get from my guests. It gives a little time for information but also for reflection on what one has experienced. General consensus, is that an hour is about right. Although, I appreciate that you could spend a couple of hours in their easily. Therefore, I try to impart as much information as I can in my portion of the tour, with a view to also not overload people. I feel it is an important balance to try and get right. All the best!

What a powerful, moving, and educational experience! Alun was very knowledgeable and personable throughout the entire tour. He handled the difficult subject of concentration camps and the Holocaust gently, but also made sure not to leave out any important details. He was always receptive to questions and made the experience even better than I imagined it would be. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone, and would gladly do it all over again if we are ever in Germany in the future.
