Very informative tour and great history lesson. Our tour guide Marketa (?) was great and gave us so much information about WWII in Prague. We do wish, though, that the tour included more buildings and sites, such as going into the Jewish Cemetery, the old SS headquarters or the church where the people hid in the crypt. We've been on...

Our guide, Martin, took us on a two hour tour, which included underground areas not open to the general public. He told us a lot of very interesting facts about World War two as it affected Prague, showing us old photos and going into a lot of fascinating detail. It was very interesting to hear about how the people living... More

I was the sole participant so had a great private tour. Sona was really interesting and pointed out so many things you would just miss, found out so many things and could have gone on for much longer. Very well worth taking the tour.

I went on this tour this morning and wanted to give some great feedback! Martin was our tour guide that took us round and explained all the sights. He was hugely informative and enthusiastic, it was a freezing morning and would of been easy to become distracted as a spectator, but Martin kept us intrested with his extensive knowledge through...

The tour is very interesting. The guide, Marketa, knows a lot about Prgue History and Second World War (I am a Contemporary history professor). But in my point of view this tour has to include a visit to Saint Cyril and Saint Mehodious Cathedral where, in June 1942, happened the battle between the nazis and the checks resistanse members that...

Marek T, Vlastník at World War II in Prague Tour, responded to this review

Thanks a lot for your constructive review, unfortunatelly the church is located in different part of Prague at about 30 minutes walking distance without any significant WWII place or monument to show on the way there, and its closed two days in a week. Except for that, its sometimes impossible to get there as the crypt is small and very... More

My friend and I went on this tour and we absolutely loved it. It's honestly one of the best walking tours I've ever been on and I'd highly recommend it to anyone. The content is extremely interesting, but our guide Martin made it really memorable. He was extremely good - kept us interested the whole time and was full of... More

First of all I have read the negative comment on here and all I can say is that they must have been talking about a different tour! Me and my brother thought this was the best tour we have done in Prague so far! We had Martin for our tour guide who was absolutely brilliant, very knowledgeable, friendly and yes he... More

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.
