    You have to say that it was difficult to find at the beginning, but luckily we were looked for. Our guide Johann is a very friendly and educated historian who is helpful and committed to all questions and concerns. We had fun and learned a lot and there was a great restaurant tip for our special requests. Thanks a lot!

    This was by far the most informative tour I have been on. Our guide Yohan was very knowledgeable and helpful and was very respectful when speaking of the atrocities that happened at the camp. My partner and I have learnt alot from this tour. I would highly recommend!
