    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Old Town Square, Staroměstské nám., 110 00 Praha 1-Staré Město, Czechia

    Meet your guide in central Prague at Old Town Square and board on a private bus to Terezín Concentration Camp. On the way, learn about Terezín’s past as a 18th-century fortress, and how, in WWII, its walled garrisons were converted into a Nazi concentration camp. Hear how the rail line your train is following is the very same one used during the war to transport Jewish people to the complex.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Terezin Memorial, Principova alej 304, Terezin 411 55 Czech Republic

    Your tour focuses on Terezín’s Main Fortress, the part of the camp that became a ghetto for Jewish people from across Europe. Walk through the gate emblazoned with arbeit macht frei or 'work sets you free', and take a guided tour around the grounds and buildings that mark the horrors that took place here.

    Hear how an estimated 35,000 people perished in Terezín, and learn about the conditions endured by those incarcerated here. See the barracks, prison cells and Jewish prayer room, and view the former SS camp headquarters and guards station.

    As you walk, listen to the story of how Terezín was presented to International Red Cross monitors as a vibrant Jewish community, with leisure facilities, shops and theatre and music shows. Learn about this cruel farce and how, despite unspeakable suffering, many Jews managed to keep hope alive. Explore the museum that tells some of the prisoners’ stories and displays drawings made by some of the children. Watch a Nazi propaganda film about the camp, and walk around the moving Jewish cemetery, crematorium and columbarium. While visits here can be distressing, your guide will provide sensitive commentary throughout.

    Duration: 5 hours

    Stop At: Faculty of Law, Charles University, nam. Curieovych 7 Charles Univeristy, Prague Czech Republic

    Afterwards, travel back to central Prague by private bus, where the tour ends where it starts (5 - 10 min walking distance from Old Town Square).

    Duration: 1 hour

    Our tour guide was Sarah and she was fantastic, obviously very passionate about the subject matter and very knowledgeable. This was a fascinating tour, very long day but well worth it, I’m glad we went with the tour rather as I feel we got a lot more information. Bring your own

    Booking the tour was a straightforward process and price was in line with other trips by alternative companies. Instant email confirmation. Arrived at the meeting place in front of the Cartier shop - lots of people huddled round the guides but attended to in a timely manner.

    We were glad we visited Terezin, such a sad and interesting tour. The tour guide was informative, sharing the history of Terezin. Think this is well worth a visit while you are staying in Prague.

    It almost felt disrespectful enjoying the tour as much as we did in the circumstances of what the tour was for/ about. But it was just all down to how amazing our tour guide, Jeremy was! He was captivating and extremely knowledgeable. It really made the tour and our experience

    We ran slightly late due to our tram and the umbrella people sold out tours. The tall aggressive one wouldn't stop yelling. The tiny one was of 0 help. They were both aggressive and RUDE and will never tour with this people again. 0 star if possible.

    Responded 17 Sep 2019
    Hello rosebg11rbg, Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and for choosing us in Prague. We really appreciate your feedback as it helps us to continue making improvements and ensure that tours and experiences promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe meet the high standards that travellers expect. As there are others waiting to take the tour, we always try our best to make sure the tours depart on time. This means that when guests arrive late to the start point, unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we can locate the group. In this particular case, as it was about the tour to Terezin, this activity has a limited amount of spots, as we travel by private bus to the camp memorial. It is a pity that by the time you got to the meeting point, it was sold out. We recommend you to do an online pre-booking to guarantee your spot in the future. This is in the interests of fairness to all those wishing to participate in the tour, as well as to ensure their punctual start, and is clearly outlined in our Terms and Conditions. Thank you once more for taking the time to share your thoughts with us, and we’re sorry you weren’t able to join us in Prague. We hope to see you soon on other tours! All the best, The SANDEMANs Team
