Our tour only consisted on visiting Terezin, the concentration camp. We booked the tour with the hotel concierge the day before the tour took place. The meeting point is right in front of the intercontinental hotel, at 10 AM. We were told we could pay in either CZ$ or €. It was about 50€, minus some student discount. The tour... More

This was the real thing. This tour was the best - although not if you read other TA reviews. Maybe it depends on the guide. Ours was English speaking - told us his English name was Matthew. First, some logistics: you have to reserve the tour at least a day in advance. You go to the Website. Reserving requires credit... More

Wittman Tours provides a very good tour of the Jewish Quarter of Prague. Our guide, Matthew, was knowledgable and congenial. Recommended.

We took a very good tour of the Jewish section of Prague. Our guide, Barbara has excellent English skills, and is very knowledgeable about Jewish history. My only complaint is that three hours is too long (actually our tour lasted three hours and twenty minutes). We only stopped once for a very brief bathroom break. In my opinion this tour... More

We toured Prague and Trizen with Sylvia Wittman and a member of her team on three different days. Sylvia is active in the Prague Community and she, her parents and grandparents went through the turmoil the Czech Republic has faced from the days after the Hapspurg Empire, through Fascism, Communism and the periods of freedom. You get a far better... More

We used Wittmann for two guided tours. Both were excellent but the tour of Terezin with Zuzana Cerna was extra special. She was easy to understand and very knowledgeable. We would definitely use this company again.

We used Wittman Tours for a tour of the Jewish Quarter and a day trip to Terezin. We had outstanding guides for both tours. The groups for both were small and the guides were extremely informative. I highly recommend using this company. We really learned a lot more going on this tour of the Jewish quarter than if we had... More

My wife and I are at the tail end of a five day stay in Prague. We have travelled extensively and have found that the caliber of a tour and its guides can make or break the experience. After a "just average" city tour our first day in Prague, our hotel concierge recommended Wittmann Tours for both a day trip... More

I chose Wittman Tours for my day trip to Terezin based on the recommendations of my hotel, and am very glad I accepted their advice. Booking is simple and efficient, and the representative is waiting at the easy-to-find and well marked meeting place. The trip to Terezin is about an hour; we had an excellent tour guide (I'm sorry I... More

Following a recommendation from Rick Steves', I booked a tour of the Jewish Quarter. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and engaging. I highly recommend using this company if you're seeking an intelligent, in-depth analysis of historical events and their impact on the Jewish community.
