We arrived after xmas 2014 in Prague. The second day, we took the tour to Terezin with Pavel Batel. He picked us up at our hotel and we drove in his car to Terezin. It was an unforgettable day, which you can't imagine if you never went to concentration camp or something similar. We were impressed about the knowledge he... More

I recently spent a day at Terezin with Pavel and am very glad that I did. I had never been to a concentration camp before and the experience of being there was unlike any other. Pavel provided information not just about what I was seeing, but also about the surrounding content; he is just as concerned about the why +... More

We were in Prague for 4 days and decided to visit Terezin with Pavel on our last day. I had only read the great reviews, but really didn't know what to expect from this trip. Unlike the free tours you get of any city, or the group tours you may take to these kinds of places- This trip is like... More

This is the famous Terezin Concentration Camp, which the Nazis tried to depict as a "show camp" for the International Red Cross during WW2 (and succeeded). The Jews of Prague were sent here and placed into a ghetto. Terezin was to be the first transit camp from which Jews would be sent east to the gas chambers at other concentration... More

We hired Pavel to take us to Terezin on the recommendation of many reviews on here. He picked us up at our hotel and drove us to Terezin while telling us about the situation in the country during World War Two and a few other interesting facts on the way. We found him extremely knowledgeable and would definitely recommend if... More

15th/12/2014 Patel Batel should be your first choice when considering a private tour of the city and for a good number of reasons. There was a great deal of flexibility and Pavel revolved the tour around your needs. Pavel’s passion about the city and its tragic past made the tour even more engaging. We were never bored and he really... More

Visiting Terezin was top of my list while in Prague recently. I feel fortunate - as a result of many reviews on TripAdvisor - that we found Pavel. With Pavel's amazing insights, we had an unforgettable experience that I can't stop thinking about. Pavel is a dedicated scholar on the subject of Terezin. What I most admire about Pavel's approach... More
