We had the opportunity to visit Terezin with Pavel. I can't express the impact of the tour and Pavel personal story had on us and our kids (12 and 15 years old). Pavel is a wonderful guide and real expert of the subject. He tells the story of Terezin Ghetto as if the was telling his personal story. The tour... More

My wife and I had a very meaningful day visiting Terezin. We owe it all to our guide Pavel Batel who was instrumental to our visit. Pavel is an extremely knowledgeable bodyguard turned historian with enormous drive and passion for everything Terezin. He has even written books on the subject. Pavel is unique in that he can give the broad... More

My wife and I scheduled this trip with a guide named Pavel Batel. The entire trip was incredibly entertaining and educational. Pavel picked us up at our Hotel along with a couple of other couples in a very comfortable vehicle. He took us through the small fortress and the the rest of the camp. He showed a tremendous knowledge and... More

We prearranged a tour with Pavel Batel to go to Terezin. His vehicle holds six people, we were four, two of which had walking difficulties and Pavel supplied two wheel chairs. Although there were some hairy moments in the wheel chairs, the tour went without a fault. His knowledge of Terezin and the history of the area was second to... More

Taking a tour of Terezin with Pavel Batel was one of our best tour guide decisions ever. He has a wealth of knowledge on everything about Terezin. His passion to share his knowledge comes through with each and every word. This tour was a highlight of our trip-a day we will never forget. I can't even describe the learning, emotions,... More

We spent an emotional and moving day with Pavel Batel, touring Terezin. Pavel is knowledgable and impassioned about the stories he shared. The horrors that occurred at Terezin were brought to life with passion. There is a sense of urgency that Pavel exudes. He feels a responsibility to tell the story of what really happened here. A month after we... More

There are several parts to a trip to Terezin - the Small Fortress and the Ghetto which itself contains various places to visit, including the Ghetto Museum. All are poignant, all serve a purpose to educate and remind us of man's inhumanity to man. The Small Fortress is the prison area which contains a few original fittings to remind you... More

Touring Terezin and the Small Fortress with Pavel was a powerful and moving experience. His incredible knowledge of these sites, (which as an historian he continues to research and build upon) combined with the passion and emotions he shared, made our day with him unforgettable. I recommend him as THE guide to hire if you plan to visit these areas.

This was my family's first time ever to the Czech Republic. A large part of our trip was spent uncovering the country's Jewish roots and its role in the Holocaust. For us, the help of knowledgeable and passionate guides would be essential to further educate us, as guiding ourselves around would be far less impactful. We took a tour of... More

We did a full day tour of Terezin with Pavel Batel. We visited the small and large camp, tunnels, crematorium, hidden synagogue etc. Pavel took us to places that most guides probably wouldn't. He is very knowledgeable about Terezin and explained the history to us with great passion. We learned so much from Pavel during this tour and would say... More
