Terezin, is a must see in Prague. Just watch out for an independent tour guide Martin, who spoke English and Spanish (so he claimed).as we went inside Terezin, we waited for another English speaking tour guide named Danisa, full of passion explaining the history behind Terezin. While waiting, my sister made a mistake of asking Martin if she could use the washroom, for it was a cold rainy day. Martin , tall, stocky, dark haired, Best tours independent tour guide, bluntly told my sister if she use the washroom she will be left behind. My sister opt to hold it, while we waited for an English speaking guide who took over 5 minutes to arrived. Washroom facility was only 10 feet away from where we were waiting. Terezin is an excellent and a must see place. It's full of sadness as I learned more and more about the human sufferings, the torture, the humilation, pain people suffered under the Nazi regime. It was heart breaking. At Terezin, we saw the actual, furnitures the Nazi left,the nice building, the officers and their families stayed.The actual bunk beds and tables the furnitures , one washroom , (a hole in the ground practically) for hundeds of prisoners and sink with no running water, in each and every block. We saw the disinfection , shower room, solitary confinement, unmarked graves, crematorium, autopsy room with actual medical equipment Nazi used , duck pond surrounding Terezin fortress was also used to drown prisoners due to over crowding of prisoners..This place is full of history. Reading it from the books and being there and seeing the actual place of suffering was totally two different experience I have ever felt. After Terezin fortress tour we moved on to the museum. Boarded the tour van, not even seated yet, the van started driving off. I asked Martin if he ever checked if everyone was seated safely before they move to another location. His answer was not my fault..Never apologized, smirking while telling the driver what just happened. My sister reminded him, about his responsibility as a tour guide, that all tour members were accounted for and seated safely before moving on. We had an elderly lady wih us who had difficulty in waking too fast, Martin just left her behind, never looked back and checked if everyone was together, she went back in the van, because Matin was so far infront. One tourist couldn't wait for our designated tour break and used the washroom, she was left behind by Martin.luckily she 's young and managed and caught up with us wih help of her companion who waited for her. Just felt sorry for the other tourist who paid for the tour and just waited in the van. The tour was excellent. The only problem was the unconcerned, lack of people skills, abnoxious, ARROGANT, behaviour of MARTIN.
