Our family of four (two girls, ages 14 and 12) took a private tour with Pavel and it's was amazing. In short, this tour with historian and author Pavel Batel should be the cornerstone of any visit to Prague. Pavel has interviewed 57 survivors of...More

Pavel Batel's Knowledge of Terezin Made His Tour the Highlight of Our Entire Trip! While visiting Prague, my significant other and I wanted to visit the Terezin Concentration Camp, which we knew very little about. Upon doing some research, I found Pavel Batel's reviews on...More

We hired Pavel Batel of Terezin Private Tours to guide our experience at Terezín and I can’t imagine having done it with anyone else. Pavel’s passion for Terezín, it’s history, it’s survivors, and the lessons to be learned came across before we even left Prague....More
