Concentration camp
Wonderful tour guide. Bus driver was great also. Needed to make a few more bathroom stops than they were planning. But they were great about it. The concentration camp was sad and informational. Glad we did it.

Highly recommend

Highly recommend everyone to do this tour. Very interesting, informative and confronting. The drive was not too long, once there you see the quarry, camp and museum. I will never forget this experience.

Fantastic Experience with Ulrich!
Being history buffs this tour was something we just had to do. One of the darkest moments in history if not the most and we visited the actual site of the concentration camp. On the way Ulrich showed us the main city sights as we crossed Vienna and kept us entertained and informed through out. Mauthausen itself has a dark grim energy and you definitely come out a different person, and the historical accuracy and some of the items that remained just give you the clearest pictures possible of the holocaust. Ulrich asked us to watch a short documentary on the way there so that we were better informed and this truly helped us understand the place better and gave context. Highly recommend!
