If you like history this is a must. Very interesting. The guide very professional and knowledge
The tour was eye-opening, disturbing and educational. Our guide was very, very knowledgeable and I learned a lot not just about Terezin but about the history of Bohemia in general. I highly recommend this tour.
This was a great trip, a very full day with loads to see and take in. These were two guides, Sarah on the bus and for part of the tour, who was very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter, also ensuring we understood everything that was being said. She was very talented as well, born and bred in Prague she narrated the Terezin story in English and then switched to Spanish for another couple of the trip. At the small fortress at Terezin we were then taken round by the local guide there Petr, who again was excellent and fully explained everything that had taken place there. I'm very glad I went but it was also very sad and makes you appreciate how lucky you are. The tour ended with a trip to the Ghetto Museum, which was a little repetition of everything that Sarah had told us but still very worthwhile. The only disappointment here is that there are a number of display cabinets showing artefacts from the ghetto / concentration camp, but the cabinets were empty. This is six hour trip, one hour travelling each way and just one chance at the museum to grab a snack or a drink.
I definitely recommend this tour. The tour guides were very knowledgable and provided an interesting learning opportunity regarding the history of this camp. Their English was also very good.

very interesting incite to the evils of the past, excellent guide.
The Tour was very professional and everything ran really smoothly. The guides were great and really helpful.
Overall it was a well organized and informative experience. My husband and I were impressed with the friendliness and knowledge of the staff, both our general tour guide as well as our tour guide within Terezin itself. We feel it was a well worth it, extremely sobering experience and highly recommend this tour.
A moving experience and a must see. We did not get to visit the crematorium on this trip because there was a special state visit on this day but still a good value. English speaking guides very good.
The guide on the bus out to Terezin was excellent, with a good command of the history. His English was also quite good. At Terezin, our local guide, a young woman, also did an excellent job of profiling the history of the fortress and its use as a collection point for World War II Nazi political and genocide purposes. Very informative and very moving. You could tell that the guide, a Czech national, was very invested in this particular chapter of her country's long and troubled history. We would definitely recommend this tour to those who want to better understand what the Nazis were all about from 1933-45, and the impact they had on then Czechoslovakia, as well as the rest of Europe.
The guides were able to handle this sensitive and very sad subject in a comprehensive and respectful manner.
Fantastic trip. Great information given by Helen on way to Terezin. Tour in the Camp was very interesting and humbling and the guide was fantastic, I would recommend it to everyone. Anne and Dave from Dubin
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.
