      Interesting and impressive

      A very important visit to understand how the oppressive strategy towards political opponents and the "different" ones not included in the schemes and logic of the Third Reich began. A long preparatory phase for planning the Holocaust. One of the many places that everyone should visit not to forget how easy it is to fall back into the mistakes of history.

      Unfortunately our Guide Miguel was not well presented nor did he provide information in a systematic, easily understandable way. It was obvious he knew a lot about Nazi history etc but he was erratic and did not provide us with an opportunity where we were about to take full advantage of the experience.

      This company is a third party. We had our trip cancelled and no one informed us about the cancellation. We waited for 45 mins in a hostel which was the meeting place. We found a guide who was dealing with another tour, we asked where our guide was? They text the person Who was supposed to be taking us and they replied, there was only one person who has booked and I am sick. We then had to find an alternative company who did manage to take us on the trip. I would not recommend using this company.
