  • Tania was the tour guide for us. She did a brilliant job bringing this prison to life. She was careful to not be judgmental but informative. Tour starts with a movie and then the guide leads you...

  • Definitely recommend coming here if you're in Berlin for a few days.. Second time coming onto the tour and the tour guides paint an excellent picture of the sufferings endured. Special thanks to Liam, our tour guide - knowledgeable, passionate, engaging - everything you want from a tour guide! Really nice bloke too with wit and humour. Thanks Liam for making our tour and trip more meaningful.
  • A quite exceptional tour guide (British/French) who was very informative and knowledgeable. The tour was lengthy with a lot to take in - I liked that it was so thorough, but be prepared to be standing for over 90 minutes. Highly recommended.
