Did the Dachau memorial tour in the morning and Third Reich tour in the afternoon,Alun is without doubt one of the best tour guides we have had his knowledge of the subjects.
Firstly Dachau memorial sight Alun takes you all around the camp explains the history of the camp as you go along and showing original photographs,also let’s you have plenty of time to spend time on your own in the memorial museum to take in the enormity of what happened.
The afternoon was spent doing the Third Reich your in Munich Alun explains how they came to power shows you so many important places some you would hust walk by if you didn’t have a guide with you.
Overall if you want to get an insight into the history of what happened over the period in time I would 100% recommend you pick this tour with Alun you will come away with a better understanding of what happened deserves a 5 star rating.

Alun knows his Dachau history. It was so wonderful to have a knowledgable, critical thinker to take such an important tour. He was able to engage across our whole group and bring so many aspects of this time period to life. I highly recommend you sign up with Alun for this tour.

Thank you Lisa for your review. It really is one of the biggest compliments I could receive to be described as a critical thinker. The reality is that the concentration camps were used by the Nazis to silence critical thinking. The camps in the early days, were used for sure to incarcerate political prisoners and persecuted groups who were deemed not worthy of being part of the national community. Significantly though, the camps were also used to stamp out anyone who questioned Nazi policy. The lesson I take from that is that critical thinking should not be ridiculed or even censored but encouraged. Enjoyed our conversations on various topics. All the best.

Just got back from our Munich trip. By far, the highlight was Alun's tour. So glad I chose this tour over others that are listed on Trip Advisor. Alun was AMAZING! Not only was he informative but he was able to answer any questions we had. It was so nice to have a individual tour guide that was personable, professional and extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter. The Dachau Camp was emotional but prepared us and gave us our space to process what we were witnessing.

I would highly recommend Alun. Don't hesitate to book any of his tours. I will be looking him up for my text tour.

This experience was exceptional! I've done this same tour before and I got so much more out of it on my tour with Alun! He was very knowledgeable, accommodating and answered all of our questions. Even questions that would be considered "too sensitive" to answer by some. I would highly recommend going on a tour over going on your own. I was able to get so much more background knowledge from our guide Alun and transportation was seamless. I highly recommend this tour!

Alun gives truely a personal tour in that he pays close attention to individual participants. He is a well of knowledge and there is never a dull moment. He likes to guide small groups which allows this personal touch. The issues at hand are horrific but Alun deals with them in a sensitive manner and out of respect for the victims. I highly recommend this tour without reservations. Palmi, Iceland

Thanks for taking the time to review th tour Palmi. It was great to have you along from Iceland and I enjoyed our conversations. You are right, I do like to get to know the people on the tours, that is one of the enjoyable aspects of being a guide, meeting folks from all over the world on a daily basis. Understanding people helps me to convey the message of Dachau better, so I tailor the delivery according to the group. That could depend on age demographic, where in the world people come from, also how much prior knowledge guests have regarding the subject matter. I wish you well.

Was an amazing experience overall! The structure of the tour was perfect from the guided tour around the camp to the time spent in the museum at the end. Alun is a very enthusiastic and an extremely knowledgeable guide. Throughout the tour he answered all our questions very well and he established a very comfortable environment from the beginning. I would highly recommend if you’re going to Dachau to book Alun as your tour guide.

Alun helped situate Munich as the city in which Nazism grew to scale. Seeing the Fürrerbau–the building itself is now a music school of some sort– where Hitler met with Mussolini and Chamberlain and Hitler signed the Munich agreement sent a chill down my spine. Marienplatz and Feldherrnhalle all of a sudden became the site of Hitler's Beer Hall Putsch.

At Dachau, he helped me appreciate the duplicity of the officers involved in running the camp. Many of them would return home to families at night and pretend as if nothing had happened during the day.

Highly recommended.

Thanks Will, for taking the time in your schedule to give feedback about the Dachau Memorial and Third Reich combined day tour. I also enjoyed our conversations about the history and other topics in general. The great thing about smaller groups is the interaction between guide and participants as well as people on the tour meeting fellow travellers. I wish you well.

Five stars aren't enough. This very personal tour (it's so soon after Covid openings, there were two of us joining Alun; but he thinks he'll keep it small in the future, too), that we had a very interactive discussion throughout the day.
As much as I had learned through school and documentaries, seeing Dachau up close put things in a different perspective, and then piecing together experiences and walking the streets of Munich to understand how and why, is as amazing as it is heart wrenching.
Alun keeps the feelings of Munich in mind, pulling us into the corners for the conversation on history that is still difficult to comprehend.
Thank you, Alun, for a great learning experience.

Thanks for taking the time to review Maureen. That is probably one of the most common feedbacks that I get, People say that they only fully comprehend the camps once they are actually physically there and realise that they actually existed. The tragedy that manifested is so incomprehensible and abstract that reading a book or watching a documentary, although very important, cannot fully convey the reality. Visiting a Memorial is a vital part in the jigsaw of undertanding for many people. All the best.

Alun took us to Dachau and he was extremely knowledgeable about all things leading up to WW2 such as Weimar years, life in concentration camps and liberation day.
He struck a really good balance between giving us just the right information and allowing us to reflect independently.
I would highly recommend Alun to anyone on this tour or his other tours around Munich. Being in a small group with Alun was much better than being in a large group because it made the experience far more personal
As a family our only regret was that we didn’t book any more tours with Alun.

Alun was an amazing tour guide. He was extremely personable and very informative. He was able to thoroughly answer all questions my husband and I posed and had thought provoking questions of his own for us. Extremely somber tour but important that we continue to remember the horror that happened at the camps to prevent future reoccurrences. The Third Reich tour was very informative and was really interesting to hear and see the origination and evolution of the Hitler regime and see the places that gave birth to the Nazi party.
Alun, being from UK, speaks English and was easy to understand. He is very kind and helpful and my husband and I highly recommend this tour and any others that he may provide.
