Adam is a really friendly guy and manages to tailor his delivery - serious about the brutality of events, but chatty and friendly before and after the tour. Great for insider knowledge and tips about the city.
Adam also gave us great suggestions for food and places to go near and far.
It is hard to describe Dachau and the experience but I think it's a must do and also best with a guide. A lot of the original structures are present, however they have been maintained and modified throughout it's working and museum years.
It was an overall saddening but enlightening experience.
He is very knowledgeable and effective in his delivery of the story of this horrible place.
My wife and I were spellbound for the length of this tour. I would do it again in a heartbeat!
And, if you read this Scott, remember to check out the book The Altruistic Personality. :D
Taking this your added so much to the experience of visiting the camp itself.
He explained Dahau with such passion and emotion as though some of the scenes were happening in front of our own eyes. Very moving, very informative, and well worth a visit. In my experience the best tour I have been on. A service to be thoroughly recommended.
I'm just wondering, how did the marathon run go the next Day :)
I can't praise Marcin enough, more than happy to ask questions, he was affable and extremely knowledgable.
For 6 hours he presented a tour that was compassionate, balanced, yet did not hide any of the 'difficult' and ugly points in the history of which there were many.
By the end everyone was visible moved, and we all walked away knowing we had just been through a life changing experience .
For our Munich resident friend, who was with us, this was the 3rd time in Dachau... But he said this had the greatest impact and has already said that next time we come over we have to do another tour with Marcin Wright. (I'm guessing we have to come back!)
It was amazing ... Am still digesting it several days late.
For these free tours I would mention in bigger print on the prospectus and website that tips are welcome and according with your satisfaction. In my group I am not sure everybody gave Adam a tip for the Dachau tour (About 7 hours of his time) and I was so sad for him.
Thanks for this experience!
We took a chance & it was so very well payed. He has been giving tours to this place for years before he founded his own tour separately 3 months back. This being a very sensitive tour, I could see him giving all sense & care while handing the tour. We are truly thankful of him to share his knowledge & other experiences with us to understand the whole place.
I highly recommend InMunich Tours above any other tour operators here :)
