...A sobering yet rich in history tour. Rose our guide at the small fortress - the prison camp - was excellent in telling the stories of what went on there...Mind you this was a prison and transfer camp in WWII and though many people perished it was not the death camps that we know of ....This tour should not be missed
I always thought I would never want to go to a concentration camp but it was situated in the country of my father and the impending Nazi invasion was the reason my grandparents came to America. The tour was excellent. Very thorough and thought provoking without being too traumatic for me emotionally. I would highly recommend it.
This was an incredibly moving experience. This is a must see for anyone visiting Prague. You get a real perspective when you stand before cell 12 and when you visit the large fortress and see the Jewish ghetto and how they were forced to lived. Fantastic tour. Some parts of history should never be forgotten. This tour will move you regardless of your nationality.
Every detail was right. We took a beautiful van to the sight with our tour guide, Sara , narrating along the way. She was extremely knowledgable and timed the various sections of our tour perfectly.
I had never been to a concentration camp before and it was a very humbling experience. From the prison to the Jewish Ghetto and museum, the living conditions were just deplorable. At the end of the prison tour we saw a Nazi propaganda movie and at one point it told how Hitler annexed the Sudetenland from Czecholslovakia because 90% of the people living there were German-speaking Czech. It just startled me to the bone because of recent political events in the Ukraine.
This is a tour all world travelers need to take. Terezin was a holding camp for Prague's Jews and Jews from other parts of Europe. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The only drawback was the tour needed to be at least an hour longer so one could take in the images and stories at the museum. If you take this tour make sure to visit the Jewish Quarters first, especially the Pinkas Synagogue, now a museum, which lists the names of the 77,000 Czech Jews killed in the Holocaust. The tour began and ended at Republic Square. Spend some time at the Square to enjoy the Municipal House's beautiful interior and restaurants. The gift shop has a clean and free restroom.
This tour is good, it takes an hour to get there on the bus,
both the guide on the bus and the guide round the camp were good,
This trip is an eye opener and shocking at times, its hard to imagine how anybody survived.
This tour was very informative and would not miss this opportunity. It lasts about 5 hours total. Every inch of the concentration camp along with photos, poems are explained. Well worth the money.
Excellent tour! Very interesting and worth doing. You get there by bus with a tour and at Terezin there is a local tour guide. Highly recommended.
One of the best tours I've been on ... well worth the money. Our tour guide was very friendly, caring, patient and knowledgeable.
The small and large fortresses have some excellent articles and content and the Ghetto Museum was fascinating to visit, very thought provoking .....
Terezin itself is fascinating and while a contrast to Prague itself, understanding some of the history made my overall visit more worthwhile.
looked after very well from beginning to end tour guides were very helpful and informative.Trip not too far out of Prague. Interesting day out
