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.
Amazing, this is a must if you are in praga... call and ask for the nearest metro station so you dont get lost like me specially if you dont talk the local language!
thank you for the tour, very profesional!
Whilst Terezin is not technically a 'death camp' the experiences of the people were enough to ensure that you come away with the feeling that it must never happen again. This is not an 'enjoyable' tour, but it is definitely one that should be experienced
Wonderful and sensitive tour. I would recommend this trip to anyone with or without family connections to Terezin.
We are so glad we took this excursion tour of the concentration camp and museums. It was very interesting and all arrangements were perfect for special guided tours in each of the facilities involved. The bus ride to and from the camp and crematorium was comfortable and safe. The tour guide spoke excellent English and we learned so much about the fortress/prison/camp. It was well worth the time and expense!
This was my first visit to a concentration camp and it was a very informative introduction. I was surprised to hear that Gavrilo Princip was sentenced to life in this prison camp. The tour was sad and moving at times, but the tour guides made the whole experience really respectful and professional. I highly recommend this tour. It is very different to be right in the 'middle' of where it all happened for millions of Jews, than to actually read about it in books or watch it in a movie.
This was an outstanding tour.Our tour guide was giving us history from start to finish!Highly recommend this tour
I was going to visit Terezin on my own and decided to book this tour. I was glad that I did. Our guide talked a bit too much, but that was easy to disregard as her information was very valuable. We saw quite a bit more than just the camp, learned a great deal and I recommend this trip.
Excellent tour, a real history lesson! Sarah is an awesome guide, she is very passionate about her subject. My only suggestion would be to bring along something to eat and drink.We left Prague at 9:15 and didn't return until 3:15, the only opportunity to get food was very near the end of the day.
The tour and guides on the bus and at Small Fortress were exceptional. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who has read about the Holocaust, Nazi's and WWII. Being at this place makes the history of these horrible events real.
I would highly recommend this tour to every visitor that will spend a few days in Prague or Czech Republic. The guide was very friendly and helpfully. 5 stars for this experience.

A very interesting tour which takes you back in time very good value for money , and tour guide v helpfull with questions and very plesant tour guide. It is a must see if you are interested in history of this kind.
For 30, you do get your money's worth. It was nice to get out the city for the day and see Prague's rich, albeit at times harrowing, history.
The whole day is around 6 hours - departure at 9am and you get back to central around 3/3:30pm. If you suffer from travel sickness, be sure to take some medication as the minibus can be a little bumpy.
The tour itself was incredible - definitely a grounding experience, Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable and provided a really in depth background to the camp's history and its changing purpose. Along with the camp, you get to visit the Jewish cermetorium men: remember to take a hat to cover your head for respect and the memorial and art museums, which you are given independent time to explore at your own leisure.
All in all, I highly recommend the trip a must-see outside of central Prague. Perfect if you are travelling on your own or in a group. Just remember to bring your own food and drink as you will be walking around all day!
