Compelling tour that was…
Compelling tour that was well coordinated by tour operator, and site resources were very informative, organized. The personal insight from previous camp victims via audio and written story, provided a very intimate view of such a horrific, unfortunate circumstance. The tour guide was informative, organized, pleasant and enjoyable to relate with. The camp condition, renovation and maintenance was excellent and the Austrian government is to be commended.

An important experience
This is not a pleasure trip however believe it is a very important place to visit. Our guide was sensitive to the needs and interests of the group and went out of his way to provide an experience that matched our interests. We were a small group, 4, which was nice and we had plenty of time to see and learn about what was there. The drive through the Austrian countryside is a bonus.

Memorable day
Difficult but important and memorable day. It is one of the highlights of our trip to Austria. Joseph was great—-very knowledgeable about the camp and informative about the region along our route from Vienna. We watched a very good documentary on Mauthausen during the drive. This is a day we will always remember.
