Couldn't recommend this any higher. Marek was full of knowledge, enthusiasm and really brought the tour and history of the period to life!

The tour provided a wonderful inside look at the city and its history. We appreciated our guide's photos and maps, all of which put the people, places, and events in perspective. It was a super way to see and hear some of the inside story without having to stop and read a guide book. Our guide, Martin, was just right--cheerful,... More

These are the kinds of tours I love! Marketa was our guide, and she was very passionate about the subject. I learned so much about the German occupation during WWII and never would have found out so many interesting (and in many cases horrifying) details. I don't want to ruin it for anyone so I won't share anything. Go on... More

Wonderfully informative tour. Our guide was a college student. We essentially walked the Royal Mail from Power Tower to Wenceslas Square to the Old Jewish Quarter to the Church. Along the way, he pointed out what happened where. We heartily recommend this to anyone interested in a small part of the War.

This tour was exactly what I was looking for among excursions proposed. No need to buy tickets in advance. All you have to do is to come to the spot (twice a day - you can choose the time) and catch the excursion. You will know a lot about fascists and soviet occupation, take a walk through the underground city... More

Pavel was an excellent guide, and most of his humour worked. Seeing wartime photos from the locations where they were taken was quite remarkable. Pavel presented a very even-handed presentation of how the Czechs dealt with over six years of occupation and its aftermath. There were plenty of interesting stories and anecdotes of both the tragedies and absurdities of life... More

Our tour guide, Marek, was extremely knowledgable and helpful, and even humorous, in an appropriate way. The tour was just what we were looking for and worth every penny. Not to be missed if you are looking for information on the contemporary history of Prague. We even asked the tour guide what other tours she was giving as we would... More

We took this tour and found our guide Sofia fantastic. She knew a great deal about the history of the German invasion and occupation. The tour went very fast and kept everyone interested till the end. A tour not to be missed.

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
