The whole trip was amazing. Loved the stories from the driver. Only downside was the food but it was a basic restaurant.
The tour was so interesting and our guide, Fleming, was fantastic! What a tragic time in history that we must never forget.
Excellent! Ii was an unforgettable experience and the guide was very well informed. We even reached Vienna earlier than supposed, and I could go and visit National Opera and the Library after the trip to Mauthausen! I shall recommend this to my friends.
Tom was an excellent guide. When he greeted us he was friendly and inviting. He spoke top notch English on the way there giving us background information about the camps. He communicated well asking us about our backgrounds and shared his interesting life story . He did his best to answer our questions and we knew much more about the camp and Vienna as a result.
I met our guide at Tourist Info Wien (right off the U1 line at Karlsplatz stop). He explained a lot of helpful history to us on the ride over and then had us watch a short documentary of the concentration camp on iPads in the van which was very wise. We got to Mauthausen with a greater and more In-depth understanding of what took place there which made our visit more meaningful. When we arrived we were given audio guides and a map and allowed to wander the camp and it’s museum on our own for a few hours before reconvening. It was pretty desolate aside from a few school groups visiting. Our tour guide was great and even drove us down into the granite quarry so that we could see it up close. We went to lunch at a nice but casual sit down restaurant that served Austrian cuisine. Overall worth the money and I highly recommend this tour.
excellent guide- calm' great van and equipment - like ipads' water in car' taxi refund offer right away, knowledgable in Viena and austria as well, sensitive and friendly. Definitely will go again with Tom. Recommended. ps- change restaurant maybe? too american "road diner" style. mediocre food and ambiance.
The trip was well organised- we were pick up was timeous. Our driver was very knowledgeable about the history of the camp and the events surrounding it. The actual camp was unbelievable- they have tried to keep it as original as they could. It was a eye opener for us. Nothing prepares you for the reality. They even have the original gas chambers and incinerators. 😢
I’d like to say this was an managing tour, but that seems weird when you take into account the atrocities that happened here. Whilst I could only imagine the horrors that took place, it puts our lives into perspective & helps to understand what we have gained from those that lost their lives. The tour itself was great & our driver was knowledge. He even dropped us back to our hotel after the trip. If you are looking for an activity to really get you thinking & feeling, this is for you. See where so many lost their lives for the freedom that we all enjoy.
Excellent tour by Fleming and Naomi !!! A lot of information about the places we visit and history. We had a GREAT time.!!! Thanks very much Dimitrios
We were met by our tour guide Fleming in front of tourist information in Central Vienna. Very easy to find and if you need a taxi this will get reimbursed. Comfortable vehicle. Drive out to camp gave us a chance to experience the beauty of the Vienna countryside. Our guide Fleming was extremely knowledgeable and told the history of Vienna and WW1 and WW2 tying it all together in an understandable way. You then watch a 40 minute documentary on the Camp which gives a visual perspective prior to the camp itself. On arrival you get a audio guide and move through the camp alone. I preferred this to an accompanying guide as you can spend reflective time in quiet areas. The tour ends in a modern and excellently curated area with very detailed information. Fleming took us down to the quarry as the Stairs of Death have been closed to the public due to safety reasons. My 13 year old daughter managed this tour well though there is a part in documentary that is very graphic. On the way home we stopped for lunch which is not included in the tour. In my view if you have the time this tour is a must to understand more fully the history of Austria. Thanks Fleming for sharing your knowledge.
Really enjoyed our sightseeing trip. Our host was Fred who could not have been more accommodating. He pre-purchased tickets for Schoenbrunn Palace for us which saved a lot of time (We visited NY Day so it was very busy) Fred also tailored the tour at our request, so we could see the places we had identified to visit. Excellent Experience, Many Thanks
The day was overcast and very cold and showery - which matches the mood of this place. It seems strange to use positive words for such a sombre experience - such as enjoyable. And yet there is something to feel positive about - the triumph of the human spirit perhaps? Also the fact that this place has been well preserved to this present day as a grim reminder of what we humans can do to each other in the name of government and/or policy. What should always come first is our commitment to humanity and all that entails. The audio guide is very good. There are some very good sculpted monuments throughout the grounds and many of the buildings are well maintained and intact. There is also a very good museum section towards the end of the tour. The person who took us on the tour played us a dvd about the camp and the holocaust during the 2 hour bus drive to the monument. Other than that his role was simply to provide transport as, once you are at the site, you are alone with your audio guide.
