This was a really good tour. Somewhat hard hitting at times and emotionally draining but one that must be made if you visit Praha and have the time.
Terezin was a small glance at the horror of the Holocaust. We were able to get a better understanding of some of the conditions that these poor people had to endure, but without the extreme intensity of going to one of the death camps.
One of the highlights of our Prague tour. Visiting Terezin is not only informative and educational, but quite an emotional tour. Words can NOT describe how important this place is. Anyone who loves history and wants to learn something new about the travesty of the Holocaust, this tour is highly recommended. Our tour director, driver and guide were all professional and knowledgeable.
Great tour, very informative and tour guide to and from Terezin was good and guide at Terezin was also good, understood everything and the guides English was very good, so no language barrier. A lot included in your day trip, great value for money.
we found this tour to be very rewarding, it was a sombre experience, this should be compulsory for all school age children to learn about the holocaust so it never happens again, we could only imagine the suffering that these people went through, a must, sad see.
This tour was one of my most memorable times in Prague. The history, the stories, the sites so well preserved, the people... i absolutely recommend this tour. We all hear the stories of the holocaust and what was done to the Jewish people, but to see it.. was another thing entirely.
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.
