Tour Description
Remembering our darkest moments in history is essential if we are to truly learn from them. It is with this in mind that we visit sites such as Terezín, and uncover the stories of the thousands of people who were sent there. An hour’s drive from the bustle of the Czech capital, the former concentration camp is now a memorial to the victims of the Holocaust who passed through its gates. Guided by an expert in Jewish history, we will tour the grounds of the memorial camp and embark on sensitive discussions of the tragedies that occurred within its boundaries.

NOTE: This tour includes a car service that will pick you up at your accommodation. Please tell us your hotel or apartment address in the 'Additional Details' box while adding the tour to your shopping cart.

Our day begins at your accommodation, where we will meet our driver and guide. We will spend about four hours on the grounds of Terezín, taking in its Large Fortress, Small Fortress, and Crematorium. Transformed from a fortress town to a ghetto-concentration camp hybrid from 1941- 1942, Terezín was a way-station to extermination camps for tens of thousands of European Jews. While we explore the various areas of the camp, we will learn about the Jewish self-administration of the camp and the camp’s manipulation and use as propaganda by the Nazis. Our guide will also help us to envisage the paradox of the concentration camp’s unique cultural life among its terrible conditions that were purposefully designed to hasten death.

Individual stories will illuminate the greater picture on our visit—tales of hardship and suffering but also of hope and courage. Terezín was the only Nazi ghetto with a significant number of survivors and our guide will share with us throughout the day some of the many testimonies of life in the camp. As we hear these stories we will develop a deeper understanding of the complexities of the tragedy that occurred at Terezín. 

Our time at the site will leave us with a meaningful insight into this particularly difficult period of our recent history—into both the political mechanisms that enabled Terezín’s creation and personal experiences of living and enduring life there.
Is this excursion recommended for children?
There is no age limit on our private walks and there are no age restrictions at the Terezín memorial. However, due to the nature of the subject matter, this excursion may not be suitable for families with younger children. For any interested families, we have family-friendly guides who will tailor the excursion to your needs.

Where do we meet? Where does it end?
Your driver and guide will meet you at your accommodation, where we will also return at the end of the tour.

I'm not staying in Prague—can I still book this tour?
Yes, depending on where you are staying, it may still be possible to book the Terezín Excursion. Please contact us to discuss details and pricing.

Can I book for a group larger than six?
Please contact us to book a group larger than six. It is possible but we would need to adjust the pricing to account for a larger vehicle.

What costs will I need to cover on the day?
The tour includes the entrance fee for Terezin and your transport to Terezín and back. However, you will need to cover any additional costs on the day, for example for lunch or snacks.

Does this experience include lunch? 
No. Due to the lack of quality dining options in Terezin, we do not account for a lunch stop in our itinerary. We advise clients to bring snacks and we can stop at an onsite bistro for a coffee or small sandwich mid-tour.

Marketa was lovely and we learned so much from her. Her stories helped us all feel connected to the people that had been there. We enjoyed our time with her!
Very caring and Knowledgeable guide !
Our guide was very sweet but I don't think she was the best context guide we had..especially for this subject matter - maybe it was a language thing but there were questions we had that I'm not sure she was able to answer - about the history of Jews in the country etc...we learned a lot more the next day when we did the Jewish quarter stuff on our own, and even about Terrazin...again, it might have been a language issue - it was a still a great day and very convenient to have the driver etc...
