Great tour although the street was busy and you had to listen hard. Tour guide was very knowledgable although a little rushed, he mentioned being in a hurry. Well worth the price.

We took this as our first Walking Tour of Prague (there are loads!), and to be honest, i don't think we needed another after it. Sonia led 10 of us around Old Town, Jewish Quarter and even a nice peak of Underground Prague, and gave lovely snippets into the history of the main landmarks (from WWII period and ancient), as...

I really enjoyed the tour and found it very interesting. Martin our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the subject. Loved the photos that he brought along, they really brought what he was talking about alive. Apparently people have commented on his accent, which is strong, but I still found him easy to follow and he was always happy... More

The tour starts off with a brief intro of the happenings that led to the WWII, with focus on the areas around the Czech Republic. The the guide take you through the city to see places of importance of the Czech resistance. The visit down to the underground is especially interesting!

We were looking forward to this tour and went to the meeting point on the morning of the Prague Marathon. Marketa was honest and offered to go ahead with the tour being altered for sites and streets that would be blocked but encouraged us to return at another date/time. We took her recommendation and returned the next morning. We could... More

We went on this tour with Margret and she was a fantastic tour guide. She was a local to Prague and was full of knowledge and was able to answer many questions we had. We walked to various sites that were important during WW2 and Margret had old pictures of the places taken at the time so we could envision... More

The guide knows what he is talking about, he let you know how Prague was under WW2 and how the partisans worked under ground. Well worth the money.

My wife and i did this tour on recomeendation from TA. We enjoyed the tour but thought it was a tad expensive for a 2 hour walking tour. The guide seemed genuinely knowledgeable. The tour does take you into some cellars below the coty that without the tour, i dount you would get access too. The tour could be an... More

An excellent tour and well worth the money. The guide had an abundance of knowledge that went beyond WW2, and covered all eras for Prague. Very informative tour. Highly recommended.

Staying in Josefov

Neighborhood Profile
Josefov
Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small neighborhood centered around Široká street is completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As the former Jewish Ghetto, today all that remains are a few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small enough that a person could touch the houses on both sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this neighborhood carries in its legacy as Franz Kafka’s birthplace. Nearby streets are full of kosher restaurants, museums and antique bookstores.
