Dorothy did a great job of explaining the events that led to someone like Hitler coming into power. She also did a fine job of explaining how the sites we visited played a role in the rise of Nazi Germany. I especially enjoyed looking at the pictures of the sites we visited as they looked during that time period and after the war.

The guide was very knowledgeable, clear and generous with stories. I recommend the tour to anyone willing to listen and learn. Anyone visiting Germany should go on these tours even if you well know it’s history.

Very informative and interesting. Great way to see dinner of the city's highlights too.

Interessante und ausführliche Tour. Florian war als Native ein super Guide!

very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, excellent tour
