The best part was learning how determined Europeans are to never let this sort of thing happen again. Very comforting.

As for actually seeing what was going on in this camp, it would be hard to call any of it a 'favorite'.

Very much a worthwhile tour. It was arranged via the Viking River Cruise organization and the tour guide was local and excellent.

Bus & train ride included. Roughly an hr to your location. Tour guide informative & friendly. Lots of walking so be comfy. Modern society live in this camp/town so for me took away the horrors that were or what you could have felt.

This trip was top of my list for me to visit whilst in Prague.

The conditions and brutality the people suffered made me think, how can human beings be so cruel to another.

We saw the cells where people were put in total darkness for months, know wonder some were completely mad when they came out of them.

The tour guide was very interesting and explained things very well.

This trip certainly tugged on my heart so sorry for the people who had to suffer this.

Everyone should visit a camp like this, because you appreciate what you have, and
many many poor people never had a life.

Went to the departure point, didn't realise I had to check in at the yellow kiosk. So I went to the other departure point and missed the bus. Partly my fault, but instructions could have been clearer. Maybe next time.

The camp itself is fascinating, sad, and not to be missed. We had a very good guide once we were INSIDE the camp (the “local” guide. Unfortunately I can not say the same for Vera, our overall tour guide- who spoke to us in a monotone, cared more about hurrying us along, provided such confusing information that she actually LOST two members of the party, and just generally seemed unhappy to be doing her job. We were left to our own devices in the museums, since apparently giving us info there wasn’t part of her job description. I would also recommend you pack your own food- options are limited.
Overall I can not recommend this tour at all, but do go to the camp, you will learn a lot.

We had a terrific English speaking guide to show us around the concentration camp, which made the trip worthwhile. Our guide who took us on the mini bus out to Terezin was less interesting. We found it disconcerting trying to listen to her speak English (in a complete monotone voice) then swapping immediately to Spanish. We would have to focus on the Spanish as well so we could then listen appropriately when she swapped back to English. There were no discernible breaks between languages. Tour was good but it would have been far superior with just one language and with a guide who engaged us with the stories that go alongside the history that we have come so far to see and are trying to understand.

We visited Terezin after booking a 'TOUR' with our hotel. Our guide, Lucie, & driver, Tony, were on time & greeted us with a smile. We were told we were the only ones on the tour which kinda made our day as it was our anniversary.
On the way to Terezin, Lucie described where we were, pointing out places of interest & explaining the history to go with them. She was full of information & enthusiasm making our, rather fast, journey enjoyable & informative.
When we got to Terezin Lucie guided us to the entrance explaining to view as a walked. We were meet by another guide that was to take us round Terezin.
As we were guided around the Camp, Our guide, sorry can't remember his name , but he was EXCELLENT, explained what had happened & why, it was a very sobering touring. THANK YOU for showing us around, An AMAZING & Surreal experience.
After we finished in the Camp, We went onto the Getto & Cemetary, Both places very sobering & extremely intresting.
All I can say is, these places are very emotional & it makes you realise just how much suffering was indured by these people.
Well worth a visit.
THANK YOU Lucie & Camp Guide for making the whole day very intresting & helping us understand what these people went through.

Although this states that there is no hotel pick up , when our bus arrived at the yellow kiosk there was already passengers on board? The coach was a cramped 24 seater and not very comfortable. The guide was knowledgeable, but she spoke in English first and then repeated in Spanish, which did not help the experience. The day was very long and be prepared to walk very long distances, but I believe some of the camp was missed out as we where not shown the ladies side of the camp. I would suggest you take something to eat and drink with you also, as it is a very long day and the only location is a café in the town centre that is not very appealing or carries a lot of range. Terezin is a must place to visit and is very humbling, but I would research all options before you pick a tour operator to take you as ours (Martin Tours) was not a great experience

My friend and I booked this trip and went on the mini bus with a guide to Terezin who gave us lots of information en route.
The camp itself was sombre and made you realise what an awful awful thing happened here and how important it is for future generations to be educated about it.
The museums has pictures that children who were at the camp had drawn this was emotional to see.

This is a fantastic tour of a not so well known concentration camp. It was so informative and very sobering. We had an English speaking guide, who took us around the Small Fortress as it’s called.
Although it was used as a transit camp, before transport took them to the likes of Auschwitz, still thousands died here.
It’s around 50 mins out of Prague, but a great day out.
One tip, take a sandwich with you, as you won’t get much time to eat at the small cafe
Otherwise, you’ll miss parts of the museum.
