It was fascinating to finally see the sites I've read so much about, & seen on tv documentaries for many years. We were a group of just 4 & our guide was thoroughly well versed & passionate about the subject. He encouraged us to offer views & was able to answer any questions. I've got a basic, self taught understanding of the subject & our guide was glad to fill in the gaps & tie everything together. There's LOTS of walking! There were a couple of rest breaks, one of which was at a pleasant street cafe for refreshments. I shouldn't forget to add that Matt(?), our guide, brought along a bottle of water for us all on what was a very warm day. I wouldn't expect this to be the case if we were a group of 15 or so though!
We had a great tour guide in Josh. He seemed passionate about telling the story of the camp, by portraying the resilience of human nature, through the artifacts in the museum. I thank him for his interest and for allowing our group to join his as our tour guide did not turn up. Thank you also to the lady who did the ringing around to get someone to be our guide, much appreciated.
Fantastic time visiting all of the key places of the Third Reich, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful when answering questions. He allowed time for pictures to be taken, and gave time to stop at each place to inform us of the history of each location.
The bunker itself was a spectacle, however all of the information inside was very interesting, in a great chronology. Lots of info, although didn't over do it. I would definitely recommend getting an audio guide for this.
This tour was very good. A very informative and enthusiastic guide, who gave a very detailed and interesting insight into Berlin life in the 1930/40s.
