“chilling yet memorable......hard to put into words how to process”
Reviewed by Judy from San Antonio, United States on January 15th, 2013 The subject matter was grisly and horrifying but our guide did an excellent job of sharing information without being overtly depressing. The trip to and from Terezin was filled with useful and informative dialogue between our guide and the three different language groups on our tour. The tour is one that keeps alive the memory of what can happen when evil goes unchecked.
It is hard for me to get my head around what we saw and know that in that exact spot people were in preparation to be murdered.
It was my first experience with a site like this and I am not sure how to explain my feelings.You have to be in the right frame of mind when going to a site like this.
From a purely tour standpoint it was fine, no complaints.
“Small fortress and the ghetto museum were the best, the bus ride was a miss”
Reviewed by Reto from Bern, Switzerland on October 8th, 2012 The tour of the small fortress was very good, our guide told us things in a very lively and interesting way. Also a visit to the ghetto museum would have sufficed, but they set aside more time for that. Combined with the Magdeburg barracks and the crematorium, the whole thing was very long-winded and tiring for students. We departed about an hour late, which was very irritating. Also we already knew most of what the guide told us. In the future I'd take public transport to Theresienstadt.
Reviewed by Martina from Überlingen, Germany on October 3rd, 2012 A great tour with a ton of information included. We really liked the tour.
“Very interesting and exciting tour, went great.”
Reviewed by Dominic from Rüfenacht, Switzerland on April 10th, 2012 The reservations and the tour itself went great. There were 7 of us in the group, and 2 guides (one spoke Spanish, the other spoke German and Italian). The tour through the work camp was extremely interesting, although it did include some very shocking background information. However I'd definitely recommend this.
“Good, but a bit too hectic.”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Bonn, Germany on November 3rd, 2011 It was good that the pickup from the hotel was on time. Because our group was only made up of 5 people, we were moved from a mid-sized bus to a minibus.
The tour through the little fortress was especially good. The two teenagers I was travelling with could ask questions, and got answers they could understand. The tour guide was very helpful, who took us on the whole tour as I quickly got something to eat for the teens. In Teresin there aren't any supermarkets or restaurants with snacks. Unfortunately the whole trip was a bit hectic because of a traffic jam, and the last appointment the tour guide was eager to catch. All in all though a great experience!
“Nice tour guide. Many thanks!”

“Gute und ausführliche Tour”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Wittenbac, Switzerland on August 29th, 2013 Es wird eindrücklich geschildert, wie die Zustände im KZ und Ghetto Theresienstadt waren. Am Anfang war es ein wenig verwirrend, weil zuerst das KZ und erst später das Ghetto besprochen wird - umgekehrt wäre es eindeutiger.
“Tourguide war ungenügend - Konzentrationslager sehr spannend!”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Wagerswil, Switzerland on August 21st, 2013 Wir waren 4 englischsprechende und 3 spanischsprechende Teilnehmer bei der Tour. Somit hat der Guide alles immer zuerst in Spanisch, danach in Englisch erzählen müssen, was ziemlich mühsam war. Zudem war sie weder enthustiastisch, noch hat sie uns Infos betreffend der Tour gegeben. Wir sitzten in den Bus ohne zu wissen, wohin es jetzt gehen wird. Der Local Guide im Konzentrationslager war sehr gut und informativ!!
“Sehr interessant und informativ”
