The Basics

Single entrance tickets offer access to the Ghetto Museum or Small Fortress, while combined entrance tickets allow access to both of those sites in addition to the Magdeburg Barracks. Most visitors arrive on a day trip from Prague and explore the camp on a guided walking tour, taking in sites such as the Schutzstaffel headquarters, the Gestapo prison cells, the Ghetto Museum, and the Magdeburg Barracks. For a more personalized experience, opt for a small-group visit or a private tour.

Heavy and sad but so important
It was a well organized tour. Obviously very sad and heavy but so important to see what they went through. To see how the nazis used Terezín to hide the truth and deceived the world. To be remembered and never repeated.

Private Half-Day Tour From Prague To Terezín Concentration Camp
Somnolent tour, our guide Patrick was amazingly knowledgeable about the site and provided us with concise information to highlight the significant points. There would be no way possible to read every detail in the museum, so I really enjoyed his summaries of critical events and influential people of the Holocaust at Terezin. Would highly recommend him as a guide to family and friends. The vehicle was comfortable and his driving was good.

Terezin Concentration Camp Day Tour from Prague
It's difficult to comment on a very dark part of history, but if I limit myself to the logistics of the tour, that may help. Pick-up was timely from a kiosk near the Powder Tower, our driver was excellent, our guide informative - though at times difficult to understand. The guide at Terezin (camp tour) was amazing - very knowledgeable. There was some confusion afterwards when we toured the museum in the town. Essentially, 8 of the 10 people on our tour were confused by the pick-up point and time we were to meet, our guide needed to be MORE clear. Aside from the confusion at the museum, I would recommend this tour. ...and there is a fair bit of walking involved.

A Remarkable tour with a Remarkable Guide

Bohemian Switzerland & Terezin Camp Private Tour from Prague
My wife and I visited Czech Republic from USA in September 2021. We stayed for little over a week. The tour of Bohemian Switzerland & Terezin Camp was one of the last touring activities in our bucket list. What an incredible tour! A remarkable full day journey with Peter. It wouldn't have been possible without our guide Peter. In my opinion, Peter was one of the best guide ever! He kept us engaged with his vast knowledge of history and also local knowledge. Peter had a unique way to connect with us as a friend and walked us through the tour. Even before the day of the tour, he maintained a good communication regarding how to prepare for the trip and giving us heads up about what to expect. We started at 7 am from our hotel and headed to Terezin Memorial and reached there pretty early. Perfect timing before it got too busy. Terezin Memorial was an eye opening experience for us. And Peter knew so much of history as well. As we were walking through the long stony road next to the cemetery towards the main building and Peter was explaining, it felt like we were walking through the passage of time. After that we stopped by at the old-fashion styled coffee house at Litomerice. The hiking at the Tiske Steny where Narnia was filmed; it was another wonderful stop. Each shapes of sandstone labyrinth had a name. A name given by the National Park. Peter had his own nicknames of some of those sandstones, as he grew up around this area.  Both names made very good sense. Our final stop was at the Bastei Bridge in Germany. The hiking and views were spectacular. It was truly the best day tour for us. A great way to complete our visit to Czech Republic.

Terezin Concentration Camp Day Tour from Prague
Terezin was a very informative trip. If you are planning to step out of Prague, this is great choice since you also get to see some beautiful countryside. Our guide Sarah was excellent. Sarah is Czech but spoke fluent English and was also translating for the Italian group of tourists in our tour. We first visited the Terezin prison/fortress. All kinds of people (including political prisoners) were in this prison and not just Jewish people. While Sarah gave us an overview, a guide from the Prison led us through the fortress/prison and gave us detailed information. Next, we visited the Terezin Stadt (a holding point for deported Jewish people before they were sent to extermination camps) and the Crematorium. We also visited the museum in Terezin Stadt but since this was a half day tour, we only had 30 minutes time at the museum which was really short. I wish the trip allowed for more time here. Overall, I felt it was a valuable tour informing us about the inhuman cruelty of a political regime set in the backdrop of a peaceful countryside.

Bohemian Switzerland & Terezin Camp Private Tour from Prague
This was an incredible tour and I highly recommend it. Terezin was an eye opening experience and Bohemian Switzerland is spectacular. Petr is friendly, knowledgeable, and bends over backwards to make sure your tour is the best it can be. The stops for coffee and lunch were at high quality and scenic places with delicious food. Our whole family agreed that this was hands down the best tour we've ever taken!

Terezin Concentration Camp Day Tour Including Admission From Prague
Myself and three others recently done the day tour of Terezin. Bianca was our guide and she was lovely and very knowledgeable. I liked that the tour required to take a train and bus journey. It was nice to see the countryside in the way there. The tour was really good. Bianca shared her knowledge of the camp and gave us enough time to explore. It was very humbling but informative. I found it interesting how people still live in Terezin. We all really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it.

Day trip to Terezin ghetto and Lidice memorial
Filip was a wonderful & compassionate tour guide. He gave us so much information about Terezin & Lidice where the Nazis inflicted unspeakable horror. We were fortunate to visit these sites to honor those who died & suffered enormous cruelty. He also updated us on current events in the Czech Republic. This is a tour that should not be missed.

Terrific guides and driver. Tour of Terezin was excellent. Our guide thoroughly explained the different areas of Terezin, only one camp and such a dark and tragic part of world history. Everyone should see this. Highly recommend.

Terezin Concentration Camp Day Tour from Prague
The tour guide at the camp was very informative and full of key details you like to hear he was well spoken and knew her history and you could tell she had an interest in the history as she spoke. The bus ride was a short 45 minutes to the camp. And the tour leader gave you a history tour which is very interesting as we drove along the streets of Prague. The day trip took 6 hours and was a delightful 6 hours. No fault what so ever. Be prepared to shed a few tears. Especially at the Jewish centre where they display painting done by children who went to auschuitz and never came back. I would recommend this trip to any one who has an interest in history
