We were recommended to this tour before we left by some friends in Australia. We are really glad we did. It was very interesting and getting the chance to go down into the bunker was great! Fair bit of walking on the tour and then a short tram ride out of town a few stops.

This 2 hour walking tour deals with the history of the communist era in Prague and then takes you to a disused nuclear bunker - be prepared for a long walk down and up the stairs! I struggled with the stairs back up as it was a very hot day and I am not as young as I used to... More

I took this tour and our tour guide was Brent, he was very well informed and more than willing to answer a lot of questions. I think that once you are in the bunker with all the material available to see, including the propaganda, you can understand how everything worked during this period. It is very interesting to be able... More

Just finished a great tour with our guide Bret. He was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. He has a really great way with people and has an excellent communication style. He answered all our questions and even though the tour overran he did not look at his watch once and did not rush us. He showed us the things and places... More

There is not a lot to be seeing around the city. The guide is well informed and polite. Arriving in the bunker is the best part with photos and material.

We really enjoyed this tour with our guide who was very knowledgeable. We walked through various streets and stopped off at points of interest such as the secret police head quarters before a short bus ride to the bunker itself. Extremely interesting communism history tour. The bunker itself was our highlight.

Our tour guide Aleks gave an interesting tour, with history about communism in Prague, lots of information. It was good to combine walking with the stops off for information about historical landmarks. Tour of the bunker was great, also included tram ride to different part of town. Well recommended.

Our guide was Alex, quite a serious young man but knowledgeable about his subject. We were given a brief history of communism in Prague after the second world war - and how local people responded - being shown around some significant landmarks along the way. I really enjoyed the nuclear bunker aspect of the tour - thinking through and discussing... More

On this tour we can see when and how communism was installed in the Czech republic and how and when it is finished. One of the reasons why the tour is so loverly has to do with the fact that our guide is very good.
