We toured the Jewish Quarter. The guide was knowledgable and professional. Unfortunately, the group was too large to tour this very important area. The tour felt entirely scripted.

I hesitated writing this review, mostly because the Holocaust is such an important topic and the fate of the Czech Jews is very much a part of that horrible story. We used Whittmann Tours in July 2014 to visit Terezine while visiting the greater Prague area. We were a group of 4 adults (3 Americans and a Dane). We booked... More

This was by far the best tour in Prague and even as compared with others on our cruise. There were only 3 of us with an excellent and very knowledgeable guide. We opted for the Wittman tour rather than the one offered by Avalon, our cruise company, because we had had one tour that day and did not want to... More

Helena was our guide, and she was great. She is very knowledgeable, personable, and energetic. (It was hard to walk as fast as she can!) We were with her all day. First we did the tour of the Jewish Quarter, where she was able to give us a real sense of Jewish Prague and its history and the impact of... More

Not a tour for those without a background of Jewish history. That said, this is still a fantastic tour. We just found that we needed a backstory to a lot of the things our tour guide brought our attention to. A little overpriced, but our guide was very informative and engaging.

The tour of the Prague Jewish town we took with Wittman Tours was the most interesting, educational and simultaneously entertaining. Our guide Alisa gave us a multifaceted overview of the complexities of the 1000 history of Jews in Prague, interweaving historical facts with legends and anecdotes. Since she knows Hebrew in addition to English (besides other languages), she could for... More

After my last tour with Wittmann tours in Prague i decided to repeat it, and found it more than satisfactory. The subject of Jewish heritage is field of my intellectual and spiritual interest, and Prague is definitely one of the very best places in the world to encounter this subject. The tour with Wittmann Tours suited me especially, because of... More

Beware!! Take a different Tour!! We booked with Wittmann because they touted themselves as the Premier Jewish Tour. Anything but!! From the start we couldnt even hear our guide from 3 feet away. We asked her to speak up and face us while talking. This lasted 1 minute. Sylvie, the owner, who is highlighted as the knowledgeable guide does not... More

We arranged to have Sylvie take us in a private tour of the Jewish Quarter of Prague. It was an excellent decision. She is a very knowledgeable woman who provided a tour that had aspects of a seminar. She was entertaining, yet serious, providing sufficient information without getting into minute details. This is a 'Must Do', and having her do... More

It is difficult to call a visit to a concentration camp/labor camp/transit camp (Terezen was all of the above) the "highlight" of our ten day trip to Vienna, Prague and Berlin, but the visit was unforgettable. Although the experience by its very nature was depressing, the tour was outstanding. The memorial exhibits were extremely well done. Helena was extremely knowledgeable... More
