Our Tour Guide, Zach, was truly awesome on this World War II & Communism Tour. He shared his immense and profound knowledge of historical events in a way that not only informed us about many facts but also related them to us in a manner that permitted us to intuitively understand them. I left not only knowing what had happened but also why, who had done it for what reason and what people thought about it. In particular, I have to say that as a German I find that his explanation of how the Nazi Party rose to power in Germany was much more sensical and comprehensible than any that I've ever heard in my school.
I absolutely loved Prague even before I participated at this tour, but afterwards I felt like I had barely begun to scratch the surface of this wonderful city's very soul and that it permitted me to not only love but admire it.
Booking this tour as an extracurricular activity together with a classmate was my absolutely best decision on the entire school trip. It has played an important role in my decision to, one day, definitely come back to this city.
I am definitely recommending this tour and our genius Tour Guide to anyone and everyone!

I attended the WWII and Communism Tour. I appreciated very much the explanation by the local guide, Adam. His broad knowledge allowed him to explain very complex concepts in a few simple words. Moreover, his eloquence was so powerful to convey the drama and the emotions of those times. It has been for sure a full immersion in the tumultuous past of this great city. Thanks, Adam and thanks to Discover Prague for such an awesome tour! Last remark, a bit disappointed regarding the beer tour because you need at least two persons to be able to book it.

We booked this tour due to a mutual interest in the Second World War...There was quite a bit about Prague and it’s connection to the war and its resistance that I was unaware of and also about the history of Communism in what is now the Czech Republic. Adam was our guide for the tour and is easily one of the finest guides I have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. Adam was informative, Knowledgeable and humorous when the moments on the tour would allow for it. I found him extremely pleasant and would thoroughly recommend him and the tour to anyone!!!

Thank you for your feedback! Prague is rich in the history of those times and many people are unaware of the events that happened​ here. Adam does a fantastic job of delivering this information to all our guests and people love how he delivers the tour. Thanks again and hope to see you again soon! Kind Regards, Discover Prague Tours

I thought this tour was excellent and incredibly interesting. The tour guide, Adam had a good balance of solemnity and humour: 2 and a half hours went by extremely quickly. The church where the assassins hid was incredibly moving. Here we moved around the museum independently, as requested at the door. I can only imagine that the review complaining that the tour guide left them didn't understand this.
Well worth going on.

We thoroughly enjoyed our WW2 and Communism tour of Prague. Our guide Tony was excellent ... so informative and everything told in such an engaging, interesting manner. He was able to answer all our questions and added in information on Prague today. A top rate experience which I can highly recommend.

Great walking tour. Small group, learned loads of stuff and saw lots of bits of Prague I’d not seen before, including a short trip on the tram. Adam was great, very articulate and sense of humour too. Highly recommend. Wrap up warm! It was cold, despite the sun shining.

So we decided to do this tour after an excellent free city tour with Zack. Should of just left it at that and not done this one as you can really tell the difference between a paid tour and a free tour.

Guide Adam,
-Came fifteen minutes late (tour was meant to start at 2:30pm).
- Came in his tracksuit pants.
- Incorrect facts and other members of the tour constantly corrected him (resulting him going to wikiapedia to fact check) - eg such as the abbreviation of the nazi party.
- on the phone texting constantly.
- Disappeared for twenty minutes at a free museum which required us to read posters on a wall (there was another company here where a guide was explaining what it all meant.

My advice, skip this and stick to free tours.

We recently completed the WW2 and communism tour with Adam and it seemed like a waste of time (and money). Firstly this is only the 2nd tour we have had to pay for upfront rather than the normal free tour concept around the rest of Europe. (We have done over 15 in the last 2 months) and it was a disappointment. The tour guide was 15 minutes late, when usually the guides are out well before the tour times. We went into a free museum for 25 minutes for us to read boards ourselves while the guide went to get a drink. (If we were reading from a board, no need to pay for the guide). The information he provided was very generic and hardly provides an idea of the times that were, like most guides provide. Other members in our tour also corrected a lot of the guides statements that were factually incorrect. Perhaps when you pay upfront the guides don’t feel like they need to work as hard, but I certainly would recommend other companies first.

Yesterday me and a friend joined this tour with Zach, wich was brilliant. He’s very professional, and even under the rain he kept the group focused in all stories, making everything simple to be understood.
If you’re going to prague, and you want to learn more about everything that happened here, I highly recommend this tour with him.
