Alice, Anna and Yvonne became experts on the subject. You will have a unique opportunity to visit the former Jewish Ghetto including these interiors: All synagogues, Old Jewish Cemetery, Jewish Museum and Ceremonial Hall.

 

This educational, yet relaxing tour offers an opportunity to learn something new about Jewish history and heritage. You will learn for example why Nazis in Prague instead of destroying all Jewish buildings and religious symbols rather use them for their own propaganda plans.

Additionally, our guides will discuss with you how Jewish people are living in Prague today. Don't worry about too much walking, all sights are very close to each other and there is always a chance to sit and relax indoors.

Benjamin Murmelstein (standing in the right corner) - the last and only surviving Elder of Theresienstadt - was accused by historians of collaborating with Nazis and imprisoned in the Czech Republic for almost a year after the war. His son, Wolf Murmelstein (83) spent his entire life trying to clear his father's name.

Reviews on our guides:


We had Yvonne as our guide for the Jewish Quarter in Prague. The only way I can describe our experience with her is to tell you I would have made her one of my daughters if she wanted to come to the states. Beautiful, passionate and so knowledgeable.

I live in Prague but my nephew was visiting from the States after traveling in Israel so although I've been through the Jewish Quarter many times, I wanted him to experience it with an expert. Our tour with Yvonne was more interesting, informative and insightful than I could have imagined - she is an absolute gem! Besides sharing her in-depth historical knowledge, she also gave her perspective as a young Czech Jewish woman and made what could have been a rather typical historical tour come to life with a passion that resonated with my 22-year-old nephew. Like many of his generation, he was unaware of the rich Jewish history of Prague but thanks to Yvonne, he became interested and curious to learn more. I absolutely recommend taking this tour with Yvonne to anyone who wants to not only "see" the historical sites but also come away with a context and understanding of Jewish history in Prague that Yvonne brilliantly provided.

Anna is a wonderful tour guide. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a serious passion for what she does. She is also warm and friendly and shares her own family's history which added so much to the tour. I would highly recommend this tour.

We had an exceptionally interesting and enjoyable afternoon being guided through the Prague Jewish Quarter by Yvonne. She proved to be highly knowledgeable and experienced with her understated enthusiasm enhancing our experience. Her English is faultless.

Our experience with Yvonne was above any expectations. This young lady was so knowledgeable, enthusiastic and passionate that we'll never forget the history of Jewish Prague ever. It made me us realize the difference between the teachers. If all would be like Yvonne our new generation would recognize the full worth of own Jewish roots even more! Thank you, Yvonne, for a wonderful tour.

Our family toured the Prague Jewish Quarter with Yvonne one morning and a day-long tour of Terezin with Pavel a couple days later. Both tours were truly outstanding - not to be missed! Both guides were excellent, deeply knowledgeable, and great communicators. These tours were the highlights of the many wonderful experiences we had in Prague, a fascinating city.

We had the pleasure of taking a half day tour of the Prague Jewish Quarter with Alice, who is clearly knowledgeable, professional, and quite charming. Her English language skills are impeccable, and she combines a command of the subject matter with a sense of humor and engaging personality. We were thoroughly pleased.

My family just have experienced a very powerful and exciting private tour of the Jewish quarter with Yvonne. My teenage boys were hooked from the beginning to the end. That doesn't happen very often! The tour was energetic full of questions and answers. We recommend it highly to anybody with the desire to experience something special as we did. Thank you, Yvonne!

I would like to highly recommend both Hana Kraus and Terezin Tours if you are in Prague. The tour of the Jewish Quarter with Hana was extremely informative and gave us a great insight into the History. We were two couples from Australia and all four of us could not recommend Terezin Tours highly enough.

Sandi W.


We had a very informative morning with Alice walking the Jewish quarter. Starting on a historical basis she moved us through the history and life of the Jewish people in Prague. Alicia brings her own interest, knowledge and the fact she grew up in the area to ensure its interesting and a touch personal.

My husband and I spent three informative hours touring the Jewish quarter in Prague with Yvonne of Terezin Tours. Yvonne is a student studying Czech Jewish history and she is a wealth of knowledge about the History of Jews in Prague. We would highly recommend Yvonne as a tour guide!

Judy D.


As a Jewish couple, my wife and I visited for the first time in Prague. Yvonne was a very enthusiastic and exciting tour guide about every detail in the lost history of the Jewish life in Prague. Going through the old Synagogues, cemetery and the Jewish Ghetto With Yvonne, and the information given by her we felt very connected to our European roots (had we have gone on our own we wouldn't have felt as connected).


We loved every moment not noticing time as we traveled through time.
we will recommend to all friends and family to hear and feel what Yvonne has to say.

During the first week of September we took a tour with Alice. She met us at our hotel and we walked to the Jewish Quarter, just a few blocks away. Alice gave us a great overview of the history of the Jewish Quarter and had many stories of the people and places. He knowledge of the Jewish Quarter and the City of Prague is outstanding. We had a great afternoon.

Randall G.


My husband and I spent a memorable 3 hours touring around the area and synagogues with Yvonne. She is a lovely young lady who clearly has a passion for the subject. We learned so much, it was also a privilege to visit the synagogue where our Torah scroll had been stored during the war. I would definitely recommend this tour, whilst walking around we could also see the size of some group tours these were very large.
