This is one of the best tours we have ever taken. We met up with Marek, who then guided us around the city, showing us sights (and then photos from WW2 of the same sights) and bringing the history alive. He is an incredible historian, story teller and guide. We were awestruck by what we learned from him on this... More

Excellent 2hr walking tour led by a passionate and highly informed local guide. Don't worry about his Czech accent, you will adjust and his enthusiasm and passion for his subject carry all with him. This guy is great, and excellent value for money.

I have come to Europe with my family - Two in their 50's and three of us in their 20's - from Australia and for myself, not knowing a lot about WW2, the male guide we had today brought this history to life! All of us can not stop talking about this tour and the information that was presented so... More

This was just such an amazing tour of Prague and the history of WWII. I have been on WWII tours all over Europe and this was one of the best. The guide was easy to find and started on time. We had our two our children with us on the tour in our stroller. There was only one area where... More

Our guide was a local girl whose enthusiasm was great. She knew her subject and had lots of info on what it was like in Prague during the war years. She was open to lots of related questions. Very good English. Excellent tour!

History preserved, and so worth the visit, as you have traveled this far, you will be most impressed.

2 hour+ tour that included history pre- and post- WWII so we got an excellent "Cliff's Notes" version of Czech history. Sonia included very interesting, poignant, and sometimes funny anecdotes (the pink tank!) that made it all come alive. Highly recommended. Very good value.

Sonia was a good guide. You can expect to visit the main places that were connected with the WWII. I don't rate it excelent because the Heydrich terror memorial wasn't included.

Sonia was wonderful! Great tour! It's quite a walk so do the morning tour in the summer. She even took us to find less expensive water. Took care of us all the way.

Over 2 hour tour of Prague that while concentrating on WWII they also spoke of its earlier and later history. I definitely learned something and we covered a lot of Old Town in the process.

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.
