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!
This was a very thought provoking tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and brought the concentration camp and life in the ghetto to life. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in what happened in this camp.
Even though it was -7 this was a great tour. The tour guide was exceptional. Well worth it.
This was never going to be a pleasant trip. However, it was an excellent and salutary trip. The guide was excellent and I learnt so much. I came away feeling how inhumane man can be to man, but also how hard the human spirit will fight to survive. A great lesson as a juxtaposition of the celebrations in Prague.
Great tour and great guide! We saw a large part of the town, too, not just the concentration camp.
Good tour, nice and knowledgable guide, would definitely recommend this to anyone who is in prague and takes and interest in the holocaust.
Enjoyed Helen our tour guide very much. I would recommend your company to my associates.
Comprehensive tour of Terezin. Tourguide was extremely knowledgeable, spoke many languages very well, and just all around nice. It was a very deep and thoughtful tour. My husband and I were very moved. We would definitely book through Viator again.
A wonderful full day tour! I learned so much. Our guide, Sarah, was excellent and incredibly knowledgeable as well as friendly and personable. The minibus was very comfortable. The tour left Prague at 9:30 and returned at about 3 pm. It covered all of the major sites at Terezin including both fortresses, the cemetery, the crematorium. I highly recommend this tour!
This was well worth a 1/2 day away from Prague to see this part of history.
Excellent guide and tour, very good value for money, very moving experience
Wow - what a powerful tour. Our tour guide (Sarah) was brilliant. If you only do one trip whilst visiting Prague make sure that this is top of your list. Without doubt one of the most interesting, emotional and eye opening trips that I have ever been on.
It was a cold, grey day when we visited. Perhaps that contributed to the sadness I felt when I saw this place and the way people had to live there. It is a very sobering experience to be in the same rooms where so much suffering occurred. It is good for us to be reminded of these horrors so they never happen again! Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained things very well in English. (By the way, if you like hot chocolate, the little shop we stopped at for a short break had the BEST!) Lots of walking, so be prepared. Not a happy tour, but I was glad that we went--makes you appreciate the freedom you are enjoying today. I recommend the tour to anyone who wants to learn about a small piece of the dark history of humanity.
