    Adam was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Would strongly recommend this tour. The tour consists of a train to Terezin and we walked to the camp from station. Saw the cemetery and crematorium but the latter was closed due to it being a Saturday.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our tour guide was Givi and he was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. We would highly recommend the tour and Givi.

    Our Guide Givi really made this an unforgettable experience. He was incredibly knowledgeable and was willing to answer all of our questions. Terezin itself is very strange, as people actually still live there. Givi, however, managed to instill a sense of remembrance and respect despite the apparent lack of reverence the people know living there have for its history. I have to note that this was the only tour done with this company that was not over-crowded, which I think also really made a big difference to how we experienced it.

    The tour starts at the city centre where you meet your guide and fellow tour mates. We travelled by public transport, the group wasn't too big which made the travelling efficient and close. Our guide for the tour was Petra, she was amazing, knowledgable, likeable and seemed to have an overall great sociable persona. We do not often take guided tours, but when the tour guide is great, it makes a huge difference to the experience!!! I would recommend this tour, particularly with Petra, who definitely deserves a big thumbs ups. Thanks Petra for the great tour!

    Interesting lots of information given good day

    If you're interested in this tour, you want to take it with Givi. He really cares about what happened to the Jews and helping the tourists understand the horror of what they're seeing. He also told us some key Czech history about the only successful assignation of a top German official in WWII. Givi was the best tour guide I've ever had!

  • 11-Oct-2017

    The guide is good!

  • 15-Jul-2017

    Our guide Givi was passionate and knowledgeable. Very sad and eye opening. Train ride was a great way to see the countryside. Had no idea how pivotal Terezin was to The Holocaust.

  • 22-Jun-2017

    Very enlightening tour. Quite sad though knowing a lot of lives were lost during Nazi regime.

  • 17-May-2017

    A very worthwhile day out. It was good to use the public transport system with Givi leading the way on the local train and then the bus. He was a great guide and very knowledgeable. The Terezin complex is amazing - we hadn't realised it was - and still is - a functioning town. The crematorium, morgue and museums devoted to the ghetto/concentration camp are extremely moving. We were at the complex for approximately 3 hours but didn't get to see everything - this tour is not for those who want an in-depth day there but for the curious and for those who want to find out more about the horrors inflicted during the war.
