Informative tour

This was a very informative tour with the knowledgable Albert as our guide and George, our reliable driver.We we’re promptly picked up at 8.30 and we’re soon on our way to Terezin with Albert giving us background to what we were about to see. The main part of the event is to see where the political prisoners were incarcerated- There we had a very able guide, Rosa. My only criticism is that although herEnglish and knowledge were both excellent, her Philippine accent made it a struggle to catch some of what she said. It was hard to fathom the depth of the cruelty meted out in this cold, bleak and atmospheric place.
On to the town of Terezin that was a ghetto for all ages of Jews. Time to look at the informative, if over wordy, museum dedicated to the holocaust victims in the town. It would have been good to hear more of the life of these poor folk from a guide rather than wander rooms reading a lot of writing.
The final part of the visit was to the mass graves, memorials and crematorium - time to contemplate human’s inhumanity to humans.
The tour ends back in Prague for about 2. Take food if you want to avoid a late lunch.
Brilliant experience

We paid extra for the hotel pick up which was about 40 min before the start time (the itinerary said it included drop off at the hotel at the end of the tour but the guide said it did not. He checked with the office who confirmed there was no drop off, but the driver brought us close to the hotel anyway. Watch out for this if you choose the pick up option & pay extra).

We started off with another group (Italian) despite choosing the English speaking tour but when we arrived at the Small Fortress we were split into other separate groups for that part of the tour. We then met up with the driver and guide (and 2 Italian people) for the remainder of the tour, including other parts of the Fortress area, cemetary, and the other advertised sites which were each a short drive from one another.

Gustav(I think that's the correct spelling of our guides name) was very knowledgeable and passionate about his job; it was a better experience for us to be able to experience and hear his passion for the history he was explaining. If he reads this for any reason I want to apologise for not tipping - the cash machine at Terezin does not work (it says it does, but will only allow minimum withdrawals of €500) and there were no other working atms. Keep this in mind if you think you will need cash (entrance fees were included and the toilets at the venues were free to use).

The eta says 3 hours, plus roughly 1 hour each way for travel. Allow yourselves more time if you have evening plans: our your took over 3.5 hours and the return drive was about 70 min (going there was about 50). It was worth every minute though. Highly recommend.
A necessary experience

Haunting but necessary to really understand the horror of Nazi atrocities against Jewish people.
Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable
Highly recommend

Powerful to view. Recommend that you go Mon thru Fri as the weekends many key exhibits are closed. Overall it was well organized and historically important
A great trip overall…just wish the guide within the Small Fortress had better/clearer English.

Eva was a great guide and it was a very informative trip. Would recommend them to friends. One watch-out is that they were supposed to pick us up at 9:00am and told us the morning before that it would be 8:20am. We stayed at an AirBnB but they only pick up from designated hotels. They also wanted to drop us off at the main train station, but they agreed to drop us off in the central square.
