Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Terezin Concentration Camp Day Tour from Prague. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
This tour was well worth the time. A sobering experience, but an important one. Drive was not too long, and the tour was the right length of time.
Going to Terezin is probably going to be something that sticks with me for years. It wasn't an enjoyable tour per se, coming to physically see the conditions the prisoners had to live in and get an experience on what life was like in camps like this was a real eye-opener and quite difficult to stomach I found the crematory particularly saddening.
We had two guides along the tour. The first, a lady whose name I cannot remember, gave us bits and pieces of information as we made our way to the camp by coach. Though her English was far from fluent, it was still understandable and highly interesting.
Our second guide, I believe her name was Denisa, who showed us around the small fortress was phenomenal. Her passion, knowledge and interest were extremely clear to see. She's exactly what you want in a guide.
After the small fortress tour, we went back over to the big fortress and to the museum which I felt was a little disappointing, but nonetheless it was still a highly interesting trip and one I'd recommend to anyone coming to the Czech Republic.
Everybody should take this tour and stop complaining about little things in their life.....and enjoy what they have.....
It was a very somber and moving experience. Well worth the trip.
Our guide was excellent. She was informative and provided a great perspective on Terezin. I would highly recommend this tour!
We found the tour very informative and interesting. It makes you realise the suffering and hardship endured. The whole tour was good value for money.
A salutory lesson of man's inhumanity to man. The guide through the small fortress was informative and did emphasise the early history of the structure as well it use during WW2. The large fortress and museum were interesting and the Ghetto Museum gave an emotive display of the suffering in WW2.
Great day!! Rene was marvellous. His knowledge and passion were addictive.
We were a little bit rushed a couple of times but I think he just wanted to expose us to the whole site.
Very interesting and informative guide, Johan. Well organized and definitely worthwhile.
Absolutely fantastic. Starting point was easy to locate. Small group on a very comfortable mini bus with a briliant guide who was clearly passionate and very well informed regarding the subject. The site is split into several museums, all of which focus on different aspects of the people who were forced to live there. The Children's museum was of particular poignancy as it exhibited pictures drawn by the Jewish children held there who were subsequently murdered in the Gas chambers . You are able to enter the brick buildings where the Jews registered, were stripped of their belongings, showered and tortured. You can walk along an underground tunnel where you can see the firing range and gallows . Later in the tour you are taken to the cemeteries and the crematorium where there is a tribute to the people who were cremated there. It is an extremely humbling experience and an exhibition that is sensitively displayed by passionate, professional guides. Well worth the visit.
Very sombre and moving experience. Informative guide and just about the right length of time
Very knowledegeable tour guide. Learned alot more of the history regarding this camp and the people who went through it .
A really excellent tour with much feeling shown by the guide. Highly recommended.
This was a very moving and informative trip. Our guide was very patient and friendly. We learned much about not only Terezin, but about how WW II affected this part of Europe, and what role the Czech people played in resisting the Nazis.
Very practical half day tour. Saw everything that we wanted to in Terezin and we were still able to have part of a day in Prague.
Moving tour of a camp which was used as a hub for prisoners being sent onto the death camps in Poland. Very knowledgeable guide and would highly recommend.
Excellent tour, I would highly recommend it. It was another by hot day but both tour
operators did their best to keep us cool...the tour guide in the camp was especially
On our 8 week trip through Europe, this was one of the best highlights of our Viator tours. Our guide at the camp was amazing as she brought to life the true emotions that the prisoners would have gone through.
My husband and I are so glad that we had the chance to experience this tour. I wish I had remembered our
tour leaders name. A must do.
I really enjoyed this tour because the guide was fluent and spoke perfect English. She explained everything clearly. You get a clear picture of what happened there and how and the living conditions. Around town coming and going she explained a lot as we drove by and mixed in funny stories and jokes - for example the translation of several towns names into English old bag, cut throat, laughing town, etc.. Very good tour after you see Prague!
Tour was excellent. On the bus ride to Terezin, the tour guide provided a lot of interesting information about Prague and Czech history in general, which was excellent. The bus ride was very comfortable. She handed us over to a tour guide at the concentration camp whose English was a bit difficult to understand however, he still gave us a very good tour. The museum in town focused on children, which was compelling. The tour ended at the crematorium, which was a fitting conclusion. Highly recommended.
Well worth the time. Excellent guide.
Highly recommended for a first experience in a concentration camp
Another interesting and informative tour. Our guide arranged for me to have a few free minutes in the archives to research a family member who apparently died at the camp. I appreciated that gesture of flexibility.
Excellent tour with great tour guides who were very informative. Thank you
highly knowledgable guides, our Viator guide even taught us some history on the way to Terezin.
Was a very worthwhile experience.
