Tom our tour guide was very knowledgeable & passionate on the memorial site. Tom was accomodating to our all tour group & can only speak very highly of him. The experience was heart wrenching, but important to see what occurred in history.
I truly enjoyed the trip to Dachau, it was powerful and informative. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and had a great pace throughout the day. If you’re in the area, please take the time to do this trip. It will be something you won’t forget!
Very sad but educating trip. Our guide Eric was very knowledgable about the camp and the history. The only downside was that it sometimes was a bit hard to hear what he said because we where a large group.
My friends and I booked tickets about a month beforehand. When we got to the meeting area, the guide had taken his yellow sign down so we met up with the group almost 2 minutes late, but still in front of the tourism office as...More
Our guide did an excellent job of bringing to light the circumstances of the camp, the influences of the economy and frames of thinking, as well as what happened at this camp. It is important that people go and experience the knowledge and feelings invoked...More

I am not sure as our tour guide did not alert us to that fact. However, the train tracks we saw ran through the camp, so maybe the prisoners were deposited just inside the camp itself. The surroundings of the camp is so beautiful that it is very hard to imagine the atrocities the unfolded in the camp itself.

I think you could but I found the 30 minute train ride there and back to the information centre in Munich a good time to ask questions and debrief about the experience. You would need to contact the tour company direct.

Dachau was the first permanent concentration camp and was a model for all other camps, as well as school at which SS-officers received training for running camps. Dachau was a work camp whereas Auschwitz was an extermination camp. Our guide pointed out these differences and explained them to us.
Dachau is also interesting in terms of German memorial culture and how it has evolved/changed through the years. Highly recommend the tour.
