Great personal tour

We were so fortunate to visit Dachau under the amazing guidance of Alun Evans. He was punctual, engaging and passionate about his vocation. We traveled by public transportation to Dachau on a day there was a strike by railway workers. Alun was careful to assure we were not left in the lurch regarding transport. We arrived and entered Dachau accompanied by Alun's interesting narrative regarding WW II, Germany and camp history. After an emotional and sobering tour of the Concentration camp we were given ample time to tour the Museum...even had enough time to grab an ice cream before heading back to Munich. Can't recommend this dedicated guide enough. Alun is terrific.

Thankyou for your review. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and guide you at the Dachau memorial. One of the positive aspects of taking a tour when travelling, is that your guide takes responsibility for the logistics. When something happens, like the strike we encountered, it is reassuring to know that you have someone who understands what is going on and can negotiate the situation. I am delighted that it all worked out for us on the day. All the best.

Alun was a very knowledgeable guide and he really enhanced the experience of the tour. Having him explain the background details allowed me to appreciate the history and significance of Dachau.

Your review is greatly appreciated, many thanks. Yes, I feel it is a great responsibility that people should leave Dachau understanding the gravity of what happened there. If you feel you have much to reflect on and a better understanding, then that makes me very happy. All the best.

Alun Evans was a wonderful guide. He is so knowledgeable about the Memorial and made a real difference in my understanding of the history of Dachau.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2020
Thanks a lot for your review Kay! It was a pleasure to meet you, and I enjoyed our conversations. I make a point that even if only one person books, the tour still goes! For anyone booking at the moment with numbers down, it is likely you will get a private tour!

We did this tour a few days ago and Alun our tour guide was very engaged, knowledgeable, and made sure that we were well-informed about the things we saw and guided us well throughout the entire camp. All in all, an excellent trip made even better by an excellent tour guide. I recommend this trip to anybody.

Alan was a wonderful guide for myself and my daughters. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone thinking of visiting Dachau.

Thanks Dennis, its one of the rewarding parts of my mission to educate at Dachau that I get to inform young people about the place. The next generation will carry the baton and they need to be informed about these things. I am always impressed by their direct and intelligent questions.

Outstanding guide Very knowledgeable and importantly was able to relate to interest levels of each member of the group Highly recommend Alun as the tour guide
icon Response from Host , Feb 2020
Thanks Norman, that means a lot, it can be challenging to give everyone attention in the group but I do my best, obviously the group dynamics can dictate that somewhat. For me daily I love it because I am meeting new people every day!

If you go, book with Alun!

Our guide Alun was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and extremely sensitive with what is a very difficult part of history to relay. He took time to relay events which spanned 12 years (prior, during and at liberation). I enjoyed his insight, felt he was very well read and extremely sensitve. I know that this may not be the easiest job in the work to do repeatedly, but i felt that Alun was compelled to educate us and did this with respect to us, to the subject and to the atmosphere of the site. I also liked how the groups are kept small, giving us plenty of individual attention and answering every single question we had (which as you can imagine with the subject matter - were plentiful).
icon Response from Host , Dec 2019
Thanks for the great review. You are right I do feel compelled to take people to Dachau. The only way we can try and create a better future is through education and humility. I am very encouraged that the majority of people I take to the Memorial feel the same. All the best!
