Great evening with Dave!

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Tour from Berlin
Fantastic way to travel from Berlin to Prague
This trip was fantastic! The group size was perfect - it allowed for individual attention from the guide and I met great new people as well. The guide was wonderful! Very well informed, witty and entertaining - really made for a great experience! This was my second trip with Sidetrip Tours and I will definitely travel with them again.

Words can`t express how lovely was this tour.
I would definitely recommend everyone to travel with them! Guide was professional and managed to take care of the little kids and elderly people on the group (8 people), I was impressed. And the stops were incredibly beautiful, especially the views on the Elbe mountains.

Great tour
I took this tour with Cesar, who although tours infrequently, was a very knowledgeable and informative guide. On the trip down to Sachsenhausen, he filled us in on a lot of the backstory of what led to the Third Reich, and during the tour he provided all manners of information, history, detail, and even anecdotes. He also allowed us a little bit of free time so that we could explore what interested us. Sachsenhausen is a difficult place to visit, but I was very impressed with Cesar and his presentation of the subject matter.

Informative Insight
Our tour guide was Warren (Darren), the Irish guy. He was very knowledgable about the topic as it is what he is passionate about. He made sure all we all knew where we were going, so that no one stayed behind. He stopped along the way to introduce the Nazi era. He made sure he everyone understood what he was saying and was open to questions and comments. He told the history from an unbiased point of view leaving the information to our interpretation and conclusions. He delivered the information in such a way that made you feel you were there, maybe sitting in a college class, being immersed in all this history. He was wonderful.

Ryan was amazing! Objective and informative
Our guide, the Scottish Ryan, is the man you should hope for when you visit Sachsenhausen. A perfect balance between speed, information, time for yourself, objectiveness, wit and thought provoking background. Due to us disappearing to find some food and ending up in another carriage on the way home, we couldn't thank him personally, so I hope my words of gratitude reach him this way. I have worked in tourism for about 20 years now and I usually dislike excursions and guides, but this man is such a pleasant exception. And my kids of 9, 12 and 14 also agreed with me. Thanks Ryan!

Important Historical Tour
My friend and I took this tour recently with Wouter as our guide. It was an extremely interesting but also a disturbing place to visit. Wouter was extremely informative, answered our questions and was helpful overall. I'd recommend this tour to people who want to understand more about Nazi history.

Well worth it!!!!
Jules was great!!!! Very knowledgeable and friendly! There is a lot of history here and a lot to see. If you’re interested, you can stay longer after the tour is is finished, and explore more on your own.

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp
Cesar was our tour guide for the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp and he was awesome! He has tons of knowledge and explained everything very well.
Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Tour from Berlin
Informative trip
Cesar was a very knowledgeable guide who is more than well-qualified to explain to us about the history and context of Sachsenhausen. He was friendly and was open to any questions we had. He also took time to give us directions to where we wanted to go after the tour ended. A good tour all in all.
Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Tour from Berlin
Brilliant
Tarek was our guide for this tour. His knowledge and enthusiasm were palpable. He is a truly exceptional and talented young man. I learnt so much on this tour. He guided us straight past the crowds and took us to the pinnacles of the displays, the best viewing areas, and explained so much about the history of the museums, the people involved in their construction / revitalisation following much of their destruction and how many of the artefacts displayed had found their way to Berlin. His knowledge and ability to impart that knowledge regarding individual pieces and displays we focussed on for the tour was astonishing. This is a true gem of a tour, exceptional value and I wholeheartedly recommend It to anyone wanting a really personalised experience in a small group environment. After being on this tour with Tarek I just wish we had had more time in Berlin to see more of the the museums. This tour is a memory I will treasure and has lit an interest for me personally to delve much deeper into history and research further into much of what Tarek touched on in this tour. Thanks Tarek.
Berlin Pergamon & Neues Museum Tour: Treasures of the Ancient World
Very eye opening experience. Our guide was amazing and very knowledgeable.in all honesty, It was difficult to be there and it wasn’t “fun” but it’s something everyone should do
Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Tour from Berlin
Very friendly and informative.
Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Tour from Berlin
Wonderful †museum‡ tour with Jamie!
The tour was of two of the biggest museums of the Berlin: The Pergamon and the New Museum. Jamie, an archaeologist and 16 years resident of Berlin, gave the five of us an amazing tour that ran through the lives of people in cities and empires from Egypt to Rome to Babylon. He describes places and cultures as if we traveled to see them with our own eyes. This is a fascinating tour as it combines art and architecture of these old empires with history of archaeology in Prussia, Egypt and the Ottoman Empire.

Pergamon tour with Jamie
I recently did the Pergamon & New Museum Tour with Jamie and had a fascinating time. Having a guide who told a story of both the modern and ancient history of the artifacts and how they meant different things to different cultures was a great experience. I learned a lot had a great time – recommended!
Berlin Pergamon & Neues Museum Tour: Treasures of the Ancient World
PERGAMON & NEW †MUSEUM‡ TOUR with Michael
I decided to see the museums on a tour as I wanted to make the most of my visit with a knowledgeable guide and also get fast tracked into the museums. I thoroughly enjoyed the 3 hour tour of these two museums with Michael. He is an absolute wealth of information, supplementing the exhibits and museums with pictures from his ipad to expand our knowledge. He hardly stopped talking all the way round but he was so interesting I hung on every word. I learnt so much about the Ishtar Gate, Egyptian culture, an explanation of the Greek courtyard in the Neues Museum, the damage sustained by WW2 with before and after photos, and much much more. Worth every penny!

very informative and interesting
Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Tour from Berlin
Just an amazing experience
Our guide was Beth, who has studied modern German history and presented information in a very clear way. She provides context into the wider nazi machine, how it came to be and how Sachsenhaussen fitted into this.

She alone made the tour what it was. She was nothing short of Sensational and cannot thank her enough.

Take good comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking and take food and drinks as there is nowhere to buy snacks or drinks.
