This is hands down a great way to spend 2 hours in Prague. Our guide was very interesting and made a great effort to tell compelling stories that really drew us into the tour. Very well done!

Marek, our tour guide, led us through an emotional and intelligent guide to what the Czechs have suffered both at the hands of the Germans and then the Russians. This is a very pertinent tour judging by the state of the world today, and gives a real insight to the pains of human suffering and resistance to forced oppression. Definitely... More

Martin was a wonderful guide and full of knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject. We saw a very different side to Prague and it was very interesting to find out the involvement of prague in the 2nd world war. Would thoroughly recommend the tour, thanks Martin!

Our guide Marek started with a quick scene setting overview of the events that leading up to war, then got straight into the walking tour which encompassed a wide range of areas including underground tunnels used by the resistance, buildings...

When I turned up at the Powder Tower to meet my guide Pavel, I expected to visit meaningful sights, relevant to the German occupation of Prague. I did not expect the tour to begin with a short history lesson leading up to the events of the Czech involvement of WWII and a brief geography lesson outlining national boundaries pre WWII.... More

Margaret was our guide and was knowledgeable, approachable and spoke excellent English. The tour was well structured and was suitable for teenagers and adults alike. It was particularly interesting to lean about Nicholas Winton, I am ashamed to say that I knew nothing of his efforts to save children during the occupation and also the information about the assasination of...

Pavel was our guide this week and he was very knowledgeable. He hosted a great tour and really took the time to ensure that everyone gained some knowledge and insight into Prague's interesting role in WW2. I'm glad to write a review for them because they really do care and it really shows that they enjoy their work.

This is such an interesting tour. We were so glad we had booked it, well worth it. It was fascinating albeit chilling to see the photos of Prague under Nazi occupation as we walked around the very same buildings and places. The knowledge and stories of events throughout the tour is captivating. It was especially interesting to hear about Nicholas... More
