We took a Wittmann tour to Terezin, the Nazi transport camp 45 minutes outside of Prague. Helena was our very informative guide who was very knowledgeable about Terezin. She provided the historical background and perspective which made the visit most meaningful.

I felt it important to visit Terizen as a part of remembering those that perished during the WWII atrocities. This was not a death camp per se, but many of those living there died of disease or went on to the death camps and perished. It is virtually unchanged since in many of the buildings, although since it was built... More

Wanted a respectful and thoughtful understanding of this chilling site. Discovered Pavel Batel based on previous reviews. Easily arranged a private Terezin tour by email. Pavel has a very learned and thorough knowledge of the site, excellent narration and storytelling abilities, and himself reveals a fascinating background and perspective that adds to the experience. He put us right in the... More

Visiting Terezin was a life changing event. Through his brilliant storytelling Pavel was able to help us understand what really happened here. I can't imagine visiting here without him. His knowledge is vast, and his ability to bring to life the events and participants made it truly amazing. I highly recommend visiting Terezin and doing it with the brilliant Pavel... More

During our visit to Prague in October we arranged a private tour to nearby Terezin with Pavel Batel. It turned out to be a riveting day. Terezin (Theresienstadt) is an 18th century fortress that the Nazis converted to a concentration camp during WWII mostly for Czech Jews. Not a pleasant place to visit, but we considered it important if we... More

I am 15 years old and I went with my family of four to the Terazenstat concentration camp about half way through our trip to Prague. We decided to go with the guide Pavel Batel and he was not like any guide I had ever had. He didn't just give the same script that he did to everyone but was... More

Terezin is a haunting place. I don't know if it's because we visited it on November 1st (2014), but most of the day it was just us. Well, us and our guide, Pavel Batel. We decided to take one day of our time in Prague to do a day trip outside of the city. There were several options including castles... More

We had a very moving visit to Terezin with Pavel Batel. Pavel's extensive knowledge, along with his passion for the subject, made the visit special and an important stop in our trip. The combination of Pavel's general knowledge along with the more personal stories, brought Terezin to life for us and gave us an experience which we will be thinking... More

We took a day trip from Prague on an extension after a river cruise. Some of our party decided to see another palace but 3 of us felt that there is more history in this area than the grandeur of the Hapsburgs and Terezin tells that story. There are 2 fortresses in this town, about a one hour drive north... More

I was very surprised by how large the whole complex is, there is so much there and so much to see and do.the distance between some places can take a while to walk and the map on the ticket is not any indication of distance. I do feel that the only real period of history covered is the short period... More
