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.

Our tour guide was incredible!! He was so knowledgeable and world traveled in history so he shared many things with us that made the history of Terezin more intriguing. This was a moving and memorable tour would recommend to anyone visiting Prague. Bring a snack or lite lunch as the small shop at Terezin has only limited items like hot dogs, fries and ice cream. Bought a book at the gift shop that was a good read too.

I was very impressed with this tour. Our guide, Judy, was amazing and really made the day so interesting. It was both in English and Spanish which bothered quite a few of the English speakers but I didn't mind. Judy did spend more time with the Spanish tourists because there were no signs in Spanish while English speakers had the option of being able to read signs. It was a moving and emotional day but I was very glad to have experienced it. Judy poured her heart and soul into the tour and she made the day for me.
