Our guide was very knowledgeable and where appropriate used humour. He was patient and open to as many questions as needed. I felt that the tour enabled me to understand more about the occupation, resistance and affect on ordinary daily life. The tour of the underground tunnels was very powerful and brought to life the living conditions of the resistance.... More

We were looking forward to this, and were thinking this would be a pretty hands-on tour with the tour guide taking us to particular spots and showing us interesting things “on site.” The tour started and the tour guide spoke for the first 25 minutes (first on the street and then when that became too noisy, in a mall) and...

Hello, Im sorry for your negative experience. Normally the historic intro lasts around 7 minutes,but on that day Prague Pride (a huge parade) took place on the same spot where we start, so the guide had to improvize and move to different place, when he came to another spot it started to rain so all the people from the street...

We did this 2 hour walking tour in early July. It was truly fantastic, not only in what we saw; we were taken to cellars under a church to show where the resistance made a stand but more importantly the guide, Margaret, was able to bring the Nazi era to life in such an easy to understand and compelling way....

This informative tour clearly laid out the fundamental aspects of the occupation of the Czech Republic throughout the second world war and postwar period. The friendly guide grew up under communism and had lots of inside information and stories about how the Nazi and Soviet occupation affected the Czech Republic and it's people. She took us on a tour (... More

Fantastic tour. Pavel was knowledgeable and interesting. He drew parallels with current affairs and with the countries of the participants that brought a richer perspective to the history of Prague before, during and after WWII.

Today my husband, two teenagers, and I took this tour with Pavel. We all found the tour totally fascinating. Pavel was exceptionally knowledgeable and brought the history to life! He went over the allotted time and we did not even realize since we were all (teenagers too) enthralled. You SHOULD NOT MISS THIS TOUR!

...I recommend the World War II Tour. Pavel took a colleague of mine and myself through a darker chapter of Prague history: knowledgeable, comprehensive and always fair. The tour was planned for two hours and finally took us three, with deep insights into the WW2 time, but also before, to understand ethnic interrelations. Five stars!

The tour guide, Paval, was very good. The tour lasted about 1hr 15mins. He brought us to a lot of places that had something to do, even if it was to a side of a steet with a plague in the ground in memory of someone. He knew a lot about WWll, but there was one small thing he didn't... More

My mother and I decided to take part in the World War II in Prague Tour and we must say it was the best tour we experienced throughout our whole trip in Prague. On the Saturday 28 June 2014 at 10.30 am we met our guide at the Powder Tower. We understood everything that our guide said and he spoke... More
