An very interesting, albeit quite harrowing, tour of the Sachsenhausen camp. Our guide Ronan was extremely knowledgeable, and managed to balance a respectful tour of the camp with a light-hearted and fun train trip to and from Alexanderplatz. Mosaic's not-for-profit status is well worth supporting, and an additional benefit is the small group size.

I showed up for this tour today. It was a nice sized group, about 10. Alicia was our tour guide. I’d love to say the tour was “fun” but the subject is so disturbing that would be wrong. The tour is six hours long, including two hours of commuting from Alexanderplatz. Four hours are spent at Sachsenhausen learning about the horrors of the Nazi regime.

Alicia knew her stuff. The Memorial site is a collection of museums dealing with many aspects of a Camp. Due to time constraints, she couldn’t take us through all of the site but our four hours definitely hit the major points. There were several times I had to turn away from the group and wipe my eyes....the horrors are mind boggling.

Alicia tells you facts, stories and also gives you a few things to think about. As we’re walking through this memorial site you can envision the times she speaks about. Her stories are real and send chills up your spine.

She does a fantastic job of honoring the thousands murdered.

I highly recommend this tour. Just bring tissues.

I highly recommend doing this trip with Mosaic tours - this was the best tour I have ever taken. Our guide, Kiran, has a masters degree in European history and knew every element of the Sachsenhausen site, and spent time discussing elements of European history. He was patient and spent the better part of the day walking us through the sites and giving us time to take everything in. The fact that Mosaic tours is also a non-profit that contributes back to the Sachsenhausen memorial only makes them more worthwhile looking at.

We did this tour with Campbell. We met at 10am and got back around 4.30 so you do need to put aside a whole day. We thought we were well prepared for visiting Sachsenhausen but Campbell was able to put the whole experience into context. We learnt far more than we imagined and found the whole experience so worthwhile. We had considered doing this as a self directed tour but we were very glad of having a tour leader to guide us through. We highly recommend Mosaic as all their profits go to Amnisty International.
