Our tour guide, Martin, was fantastic. He managed to explain to us, using photographs that he would hold up for all of us to see, exactly what happened to the erstwhile Czechoslovakia and Prague immediately before and during WW2. This tour is a wonderful complement to the cheerier aspects of Prague. Martin was very receptive to being asked questions. The... More

This was the tour during my visit in Prague that I got the most out of. The tour is "analog multimedia", where you are shown pictures and told stories about the actual places you are at. Together with a excellent guide, my tour guide was named Pavel, the history comes alive. We were 18 people. Met at the powder tower,... More

This tour is not to be missed. Booking is easy, the guide is right where he said he would be, speaks excellent English and the price is very reasonable. Marek brought the grim days of nazi tule to life, and showed us important sites that I had passed several times without realizing their significance. The visit to the resistance hideout... More

Spent a few days in Prague and this was a highlight, only had a small group of 6, 2 australians, 2 Finland and 2 Scots. The knowledge of the guide was great not only for Prague and its history but also knowledge of all our countries, asking questions i would think only someone from home would know. We found ourselves... More

What a great tour! This tour offered so much insight into not only WWII but also also the hardship the Czechs have had to endure in the decades preceding the end of the war under Communist rule. Martin delivered the tour in a very informative and thought provoking way. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend to anyone... More

As a History teacher I had high expectations for this tour and Martin, our guide did not disappoint. He charmingly apologized for his accent at the outset but emphasised that we must stop him and ask for clarification if we did not understand him. His use of WWII photos, depicting places where we were actually standing really brought home the... More

Our guide was friendly and informative in showing us key places of WWII occupied Prague. We visited key spots (including underground tunnels) where our guide showed pictures from the WWII era of the exact same spot. Our guide painted great pictures to help you imagine you were there. Our only downside was it was a bit pricey compared to other... More

This tour was great, very informative and interesting. Lasts 2 hours which includes a tram ride to finish the story. Our guide Marek was such a nice guy and so helpful when it came to answering any questions that came up. Well worth your time if in Prague.

Fantastic, with me being English and my wife being Russian we had NO problem with understanding, it was relaxed, very informative and worth it, Marek exposed another hidden layer in Prague........he brought so much to our attention that we had walked past days prior. He is very patriotic and for good reason, he gave us many opportunity for question to... More

Having read the strong reviews, my husband and I took this tour and I'm very pleased that we did. We had a riveting tour with Marek, who had a rich knowledge of the city. His personable nature added to the experience. You will not want to miss out on the secrets that this glorious city still carries -you will be... More
