I went with my rather mature 11 year old son, and we found this tour to be very good. Our tour guide was wonderful, compassionate, and informative. While I understand this tour is not appropriate for younger kids, it was appropriate for my child and important history for us to learn.

Well worth the trip

The bus was comfortable, the guide there was engaging, and the guide through the camp was outstanding. She had many thought provoking questions instead of just reciting facts. Well worth the trip.
