Great way to visit Terezin
Jill B

We had just a few days in Prague and wanted to make sure we had a chance to go to Terezin with our 13-year old son. This tour was a great way to do it, and our guide was excellent. It's a difficult place to visit but so important - and I'd absolutely recommend this.
Excellent Trip

Overall, this was a very impressive trip. Our guide was an extremely knowledgeable woman named Sarah. She was able to provide a deep history of Terezin, and a lot of interesting facts that we had not known. She kept the tour interesting, and even though many topics were sad, she approached them in a way that helped illustrate the history without upsetting anyone. I think she did an excellent job. The only thing that I would warn about is that it was very difficult to find the tour guides in the beginning of the day. My daughter and I went to the meeting spot, but we almost couldn’t find the guides until we asked them if they were for the tour to Terezin. The only change I would make is to make them more obvious and noticeable. Other than that, I highly recommend this tour.
Expected more and poorly organised

Let's make one thing clear right from the start with this review - although overall this tour was a positive experience, I did find some things quite disappointing. Firstly, and the biggest thing about my lower rating for this trip, was the fact that I and two others were forced to go Terezin via an Uber. The coach was overbooked, and after appealing for individuals to get off the coach and go another day, there was a point were it seemed that the tour guide was going to evict people off the coach - and I was one targeted for a brief moment. This was because, even though I was never asked or told at any point about this, I hadn't checked in apparently, which meant apparently going up to someone in the Czech tourism office and showing my ticket. I was never told this and was personally told by the tour guide that I was fine and didn't need to do anything but wait for the rest of the group to arrive (as I was amongst the first to arrive). The fact that they would try to use this as an excuse to evict people off the coach, despite the fact that every single on the coach had booked days in advance, is frankly disgraceful. They should have known how many people would have turned up.beforehand and booked the appropriate coach. This, along with the fact that around 45 minutes of time (that we could have spent actually at Terezin) was wasted as this dispute was settled. Long story short, I and two others volunteered to go in an Uber that was paid for by the tour guide. The trip back was also via Uber, again paid for by the guide. When we arrived at Terezin the guide was clearly stressed by the situation and it seemed to affect the tour a bit as she was not relaxed and it seemed like a grind for her to go through the day with our group of approximately 30. Now this review has been mostly negative towards the tour guide and the organisation of the tour. However this is unfair to a degree, because there was also good parts. The tour guide, although stressed, was knowledgeable and granted she did seem to do her best regarding the whole absurdity of the situation. However, we soon discovered as the tour went on, that Terezin wasn't even a 'concentration camp' and instead more of a ghetto. This 'tour' of the ghetto basically meant going to two museums in town. So disappointed really. If you want something more substantial, try a different tour. Overall, disappointed, especially by organisation.
Great day tour

Jeremy was very informative and dedicated to the historical accuracy of these tragic past events. I don’t think he presented the food situation that well. He made it sound like nothing was available anywhere so we scrambled last minute to get some sandwiches and drinks which got warm. However there were a few locations that had drinks available on the trip.
Humbling and very important

While it was a very heavy, emotional day, given the site, we still had a “great” time. Tijo was an excellent guide. He made sure we understood the gravity of the experiences and lives at Terezin. It was fascinating, humbling and very well done.
Heartbreaking but Important

Really heartbreaking but excellent tour. Our guide Krystina was extremely knowledgeable and the tour was well laid out and paced. Cried multiple times. It is so difficult to really see these horrors but so glad these tours exist to help educate and inform the world. Highly recommend!!

This tour was eye opening. The tour guide was very good. It is tough to hear about what people went through at Terezin and to see the conditions they lived in. I'm glad I did this tour, I learned a lot.

This tour was pretty much a disappointment. Not the camp itself, which was moving and arresting and full of information, but the way the trip was handled. There were at least two incredibly tasteless “jokes” during the tour - one from a passenger who asked if the group photo was to identify us in case we died on the tour, and another from the guide about giving everyone numbers in the future to keep track of us. I asked, and the company/guide, Brian S., had no plan for how to handle such offenses, not even announcing behavioral expectations at the beginning of the tour. The group was far too large, ~30 people when it should have been at least half. The info Brian provided was mostly relevant and interesting but not always well-conveyed (i.e., his explanation of how WWI started) and he sometimes seemed to have trouble showing us around (i.e., at the start of the museum portion of the tour). I’d definitely recommend visiting this site, but not with this tour company or guide.
I really enjoyed this tour. The guide...

I really enjoyed this tour. The guide Brian was extremely knowledgeable. Additionally, he made sure that everyone is accounted for and even provided water. The ride was comfortable. A lot of information was presented and this is probably the highlight of my CZ trip. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Brian Stewart was a wonderful guide...

Brian Stewart was a wonderful guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Terezin, particularly during the period of the twentieth century. The anecdotes he told about the inmates of the ghetto during the Nazi regime made the visit extremely moving. Wear good shoes during this tour there is a lot of walking! And bring lunch or a snack. Very worthwhile journey.
