What made our day trip to Terezin so great, is that our tour guide was absolutely amazing! He was very knowledgeable and very passionate! He is the BEST tour guide we have ever encountered! When we return to Prague for our next adventure we definitely book our day trip with Viator!

Very interesting and informative guide. Well kept history of a sad chapter of humanity. The country side is beautiful!

This nearly 6 hour tour was very informative, and our guide, Sarah, was very knowledgeable. If you can fit this in your schedule, it’s a ‘must see’. If I were to recommend any improvement, it would be to lengthen the time at the Ghetto Museum. As scheduled, you basically have to make a choice whether to eat lunch or spend time in the museum. Also note, that lunch is not included and to give you more time at the museum, it is best to pack a lunch than to rely on the limited lunch options at the museum. FYI: the driver (nor anyone else) smoked on our bus—a previous review mentioned the driver smoked, and being sensitive to that, we almost decided not to go.

Our guide, Judith, was informed and congenial. We learned so much on this tour! This story is an important one to be heard and remembered. The timing was enough and the cost so reasonable.

Visiting Terezin Concentration Camp was a very somber and moving experience. It is very sobering to visit the site of where some of the worst atrocities in History actually took place. This is not a tour for everyone, especially children. But if you are interested in learning more about the horrific conditions the people at Terezin had to endure, then this is one to be considered.

Though I have visited some former Nazi concentration camps, like Dachau, I did not realize the significance of Terezin until I took this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us great information. The local guide at the small fortress was excellent as well. I'm very glad that I went.

Fascinating to see the museum displays and listen to the guide - and heartbreaking. This was the showplace the Nazis took outside visitors to. Artists and musicians were sent here - at least long enough to be on display to visitors, and to leave some of their work behind. After they were displayed, apparently, they were moved on to other camps such as Auschwitz. At Terezin Theresienstadt in German, the entire town was turned into a concentration camp, but it's unlike the others because its purpose was to let outsiders think the Nazis were taking care of some of their prisoners. Locals were filmed playing soccer and looking healthy, as part of the propaganda.
