Just visited Terezin, but I prefer to travel independently rather than use organised tours so I took the bus, which goes from Praha-Holesovice in the north of the city. The bus is very convenient, and the fare to Terezin is Kc75 each way (£2.10 or US $3.30) but it takes a bit of finding, and there aren't many staff at... More

Thus was my First WWII site (Jewish Ghetto/ Concentration Camp). I highly recommend a private tour of the small fortress. Its very surreal and seems almost too well preserved. Guides do an outstanding job explaining the history and useage of the camp. Very sad, but worth seeing.

At the last minute, I arranged a private tour of Terezin with Pavel Batel based on the reviews on this site. My boyfriend is very interested in WWII so I wanted to book a tour with someone who would go into a lot of detail and be able to answer questions beyond just a basic level. Pavel was just the...

A thought provoking trip to Terezin fortress and former garrison town. The town itself is very dismal and doesnt seem to have much of anything going on there. In fact several people in our group were of the opinion that it looked like nothing has changed there since the second world war. We had trouble finding a shop to purchase... More

Our entire family (Grandmother, Adults, Teens, Pre-teens) booked a full day tour with Pavel. We travel a ton and are very picky when it comes to tours and guides. I have to say that "everything" from transportation, driver and Pavel himself were world class! Pavel's knowledge of Prague, the Holocaust, and Terezin where exceptional. We all learned a ton, had...

My husband and I have just returned from Prague. Before we went I studied Tripadvisor and all the reviews of the many tours and things to do. As a result I booked a private tour to Terezin with Pavel Batel and we were not disappointed. Pavel was extremely punctual and right from the word go he talked of the history... More

My wife and I visited Prague for the first time in November 2014. After having read reviews of the various tours available in the area we decided to enquire with Pavel about a tour to Terezin. I have studied World War 2 history and thought it could be interesting to get the Czech perspective. We booked only a few days... More

I visited Terezin (Therezinstadt) from Prague through a guided tour provided by Viator Tours. The tour cost $53 (USD) and it was really great value. The drive from Prague takes about 50 minutes in a comfortable minibus. There were 7 of us in our group. The guided tour is excellent and took about 4 hrs. Our guide (Sarah) was very... More

Make time in you visit to Prague for a visit to Terezin. This is an old fortress built by King Joseph for his Mom... Maria Therese. Later it was turned into a fort for the army. Finally in the 1930's it was turned into a staging grounds for the import/export of Jews, gypsies and other designated "undesirables". It is world... More
