A truly informative, sobering and must experience for anyone interested in WW2/ The Holocaust. Our guide was both knowledgeable and brought just the right amount of humor to what could’ve been an overly serious visit, highly recommended!

I think you could but I found the 30 minute train ride there and back to the information centre in Munich a good time to ask questions and debrief about the experience. You would need to contact the tour company direct.
