This tour was fantastic. The Tour Guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and well-qualified. She was also really good at answering any questions, and bringing history to life. I felt that I was able to personally connect with the history of the days gone by of Czechoslovak communism, through the way in which the Guide brought the past to life. The experience of going down into the nuclear bunker is one I will never forget: an eerie and somewhat terrifying glimpse, into a sinister counterfactual timeline of what might have been (and thankfully was not). A really fascinating look back at the times of Communism, and the arrival of liberty with the Velvet Revolution. I would commend the Tour Guide and the tour and give both five stars+++

Our tour guide, Zuzana, was extremely knowledgeable, the trip was fun and educational, my son loved it, the nuclear bunker is interesting and not too bad to walk down, and up, all the steps leading to it, I never knew the Rolling Stones paid for the lights to illuminate Prague Castle, I do now ! My son and I were the only ones on the tour due to the effect COVID-19 has had on tourism

A friend recommended us this tour and I am so glad we did it. Not only you learn a lot about the czech communism history but you get to experience it as well while visiting the bunker. What made the tour really stand out tho was our tour guide Karoline, she is well read with a brilliant sense of a humour, great job!

People usually go to Prague only because of the beautiful medieval architecture, but they forget, that also the modern Czech history is very interesting. I would really recommend this tour. Katrina was a very knowledgeable guide and the bunker is very atmospheric place. Definitely worth the money.

When doing a round trip around Central Europe in the beginning of March I visited this tour, which made me understand a lot, how different Czech was compared to the time today! I was guided by Katka, excellent knowledgeable guide, I can recommend her tours a lot!
