When you hear the facts about Terezin, you cannot believe that anyone could survive such horrible conditions and treatment. Unfortunately, the weather was really bad, it was raining heavily, and the wind was blowing, so we spent less time outside than we would otherwise. Nevertheless, it was sufficient to (try to) understand and feel the disastrous fate of these people. The guide, Petr Kronat, is very knowledgeable, devoting the right amount of time to each detail included in the tour.
Although we walked to the meeting point 5 mins we were dropped off a few minutes from our hotel. The guide was excellent she was so knowledgable, she went over and above with information on the city and Terezin. Our guide at the camp was also excellent guide. I would recommend this tour especially for those who visit Krakow after Prague as they can see where the poor people were sent to their deaths from Terezin. Everyone should visit.
The visit in Terezin was our first to former concentrations camps. It was very emotional, and the guides were very good. We will remember our visit for the rest of our lives. A must do thing for everybody visiting Prague!
This was a very interesting and informative half day tour. It is wrong to use the word good when you think about the subject matter but it was in respect of our guide and the history she shared with us. The museum holds a lot of very interesting art work all done by the people imprisoned during WW2. I would reccomend this tour to everyone..
Next to no interaction with tour guide, and she was extremely difficult to understand. Put the whole bus to sleep. Sounded like she was reading a script both there and back. Unable to ask any questions. Felt that it was just more propaganda. Barely acknowledged that it was a concentration camp. Second half was too rushed.
A very informative and interesting tour which was well worthwhile and expertly and sensitively guided. If you haven't been to one of these WW2 horror camps before then you should seriously consider visiting Terezin.
