The guide was very friendly and curious, well informed and interesting. The pacing of the tour is excellent and you get the feeling there is no rush, there is always time to ask questions. We live in Munich and have visited a couple of places on the tour before , but the guide has given a new light on these by drawing you into the rich history. Highly recommended for both tourists and locals !

This tour was excellent. Marcin is not only very knowledgeable about the site, it is clear that he remains invested in continuing to learn more about it from every perspective. It is a long day at the site, so be prepared to walk and stand a great deal.

Easy to find the start of the tour, tour guide was superb, friendly and very informative. Very passionate and enthusiastic with his knowledge. Allowed us to ask questions and made everyone feel welcome. Good group size as well. Cannot fault.

This was an excellent tour as a single traveller I met a lot of other travelers and enjoyed hearing about the history of the Munich beer halls and breweries. Liam was a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide.

Interesting tour, our guide was quite knowledgeable. Very sad place to visit but at same time, important to remember those that were lost here.
