We have brought many groups to Prague and Terezin and hands down the absolute must have guide is our dear tour guide, Pavel Batel. He was passionate, insightful and patient. His material wa gripping and he had a knack for getting along with our students as well, which is SO important when trying to get kids to listen to any... More

Me and my friends conducted unforgettable tour to concentration camp near Prague called Terezin. We had very bad experience with large Jewish company in Josefov-Jewish quarter so we went for small one at this time. It was really worth it! Breathtaking narration of Mr. Pavel Batel made us realise how important is not to forget about own roots. We highly... More

Wanted to write this review as we had trawled through the reviews (like you are doing now) trying to find out which operator is the best as they all seem to be around the same price. Went with Martin Tours in Old Town Square as their departure time was the earliest. Was collected promptly at 9.15.(although they do arrange transfer... More

We visited the Terezin fortress which was a former concentration camp as part of our Viking river cruise on the Elbe River. This was indeed a thought provoking and somber tour of what is referred to as Prague's most punishing concentration camps - Theresienstadt. We learned it was run by the Prague Gestapo. It was told it was a place... More

My husband and I visited the town and embarked on the suggested walking tour on our own. In the end, the tour of the small fortress was the most interesting place and made the trip out from Prague worth it. The trip out is fairly easy---take the red/C line to the Nádrazí Holesovice stop and then take the bus from... More

Didn't know what to expect and learned that this was the first of the ghetto "resorts" established by the Nazis around 1937. It was the beginning of the end for many Nazi "undesirables." Most gripping were the remembrance walls onto which were etched the names of the children who died here. Among them were the surnames of families in my... More

It is hard to put "excellent" in here but I experienced such a tour! All together eight hours and there was no moment where I would find myself not listening. Now I realize how important is to have a dedicated guide-specialist. Without him I would be wandering around getting general story from brochure perhaps? Terezin story deserves not to be... More

We used a tour company from Prague that took us on a bus ride to the Terezín concentration camp. The bus was small with no air circulation. When we asked the guide to open the vents to provide some air, we were chastised & told not to ask again as there was a lady on the bus who was cold.... More

It is difficult to list this as an attraction and/or excellent, but I want everyone who visits in this area to see Terezin. As an American, I believe we must work with all nations to prevent anything like this from happening again. Sad to say, atrocities still happen, but knowledge will help. It is important our young people know the... More
