Vida Neuwirthova was our guide for this sobering, but very important tour of Terezin. She was very knowledgeable and enganging.We were guided through the Fortress, Prision Cementary, Crementory and town. Her understanding of the what happened there really helped us realize what the Jewish people had to endure while held in the place. It was the the most worthwhile experience... More

Our tour guide did a great job and keeping the tour at a good pace. So often tour guides like to drag on and on and this was. It the case at all. Our guide also told some interesting stories about her family during the holocaust and communism. I found this tour to be very informative and interesting.

While in Prague with friends, we booked several tours which provided a taste of the city. Based on reviews, we decided to use Wittmann Tours for Terezin. For us, this was a good decision. We booked the general tour of Terezin, but since we were the only ones who booked it, it became a private tour. Our tour guide- Vida... More

I was fortunate to visit these places with two daughters and my niece and her husband. We toured the Jewish ghetto in Prague first. It was comprehensive and I found our guide extremely knowledgeable about the history and the places we visited. She was friendly and patient, answering all our questions. Then my daughters and I went with a guide... More

Wittmann Tours is guided by Czech Jews, and their viewpoint is very informative when it comes to the Jewish experience in Prague. We took two tours with Wittmann Tours. The first was the Jewish Quarter, a very insightful and moving tour. We learned a great deal about not just the places we looked at but the customs and way of... More

After our first tour experience with Sylvie Wittmann which was a three day trip to Krakow from Prague, featuring the Jewish Quarter and Auschwitz we immediately booked two more tours. Sylvie was so wonderful to spend time with. To say she is knowledgeable is an understatement. And she is full of personality, stories, and anecdotes that made the history of... More

Sylvie's depth of knowledge and the history of the region made our trip so memorable especially when covering all aspects of the Jewish experience, both past and present. She made people and places seem to come alive as though we were witnessing events as they happened. We couldn't have been more pleased with the time spent with Wittman Tours. I... More

We wanted to delve a bit more deeply into the history of the Jewish Quarter, so we chose Wittmann's based on reviews on TripAdvisor. Overall, our tour guide - Jonas - was extremely knowledgeable. However, he seemed increasingly disappointed in our groups' relative ignorance in answering his questions. Our tour included on 6 persons, four of which were not Jewish... More

We were hesitant to take a guided tour for the Jewish quarter since they weren't cheap, but ended up joining a tour with Vida from Wittmann tours. It made the experience. You can get audio guides and read the explanations in these sites, but it just isn't the same (we actually tried the audio guide first but realized that we... More

In September 2015, a group of three couples enjoyed an excellent 4 hour walking tour of Prague's Jewish Quarter with Sylvie Wittmann. Sylvie was passionate, candid and expressive, and she has a comprehensive knowledge of European and Czech history, Judaism, architecture and current events. She integrates them all as she responds to questions and guides her clients. Sylvie provided a... More
