We chose Pavel Batel to be our private tour guide based on the high marks he has received on Trip Advisor from other satisfied customers. He did not disappoint us. In fact i think this tour may be the high light of my week in Prague. From 9 am until 6 pm today, I heard the whole and truthful detailed... More

So grateful we had a professional, informative, thoughtful and sensitive guide to take us to Terezin. Pavel provided as much information as we wanted about everything and knew exactly how to present it. There was much to see and the area is respectfully preserved and apparently being further restored. We learned so much about a very sad time in history.... More

We were a school group sightseeing in Prague, as part of the trip we thought important for students to learn about the history good and bad. We booked a private tour with Pavel. Pavel was excellent to deal with and picked us up from our Hotel on time and was very professional throughout the booking process and on the day... More

After reading numerous reviews on TripAdvisor, we booked a private tour of Terezin with Pavel Batel. It was easy to arrange by e-mail and his fee for nearly a full day excursion was very reasonable. Pavel picked us up on time in an immaculate vehicle and our tour started as we drove out of Prague. Pavel is very knowledgeable and... More

Went on a tour with Sandemans with Karel as our guide. It was a very informative tour, further explaining about the locations and bringing the past to life with great stories. It was very sad to learn about the history of this place, but at the same time, teaches so much more than a textbook can. Karel was an amazing... More

I am incredibly grateful to the Trip Advisor community for recommending Pavel as a guide for the very important visit to Tereseinstadt (Terezin as it is referred to in Czech). It has taken me some time to reflect on my experience, and write my review because after having seen the “city” of Terezin, and listened to Pavel talk passionately about... More

Rarely will you find a tour guide as knowledgable and enthusiastic as Pavel Batel is with regard to Terezin. Instead of repeating general facts found in tour guides, Pavel described events and told stories about Czechs (especially Jews, but also non-Jews), Germans, and other nationalities learned from his own research and writings about Terezin. Pavel is passionate about Terezin. If... More

Best way ( and cheapest ) to go is by taking a bus at the Main Train Station in Prague. It takes about an hour. Once you get off the bus, the main entrance is about a 100 meters away. Your pay for the visit and don't forget to walk to the village to see the museum. We almost did... More
