If you have an interest in World War 2, this is a walking tour where you will add to your knowledge. The 2 hours flew in, and the guide was very willing to answer questions and added bits of information which really helped to inform me more about what Prague was like at this time in history.

We did the operation anthropoid tour with this company and had Marketa as our guide. She was a fantastic guide and had so much knowledge about the whole of this operation. We didn't come across anything that she didn't know. She even organised for us to walk around the inside of Heydrichs villa of which most people only get to... More

Sonia was one of the most informative guides we encountered in Prague. As we walked the icy streets of the Old Town of Prague, Sonia brought to life the horrors encountered by the residents of Prague during World War II. She brought with her a large folder filled with old photographs of the very buildings, monuments and streets we encountered... More

Our tour guide was 'George' a most energetic and passionate tour guide. His description of past events brought these tragic events to life and the two hour tour I would highly recommend if you are interested in the modern history of this lovely capital city.

A delight for ww 2 history buffs. The highlight of the tour was the subterranean space beneath the clock tower which was supposedly used as resistance headquarters. The guide was a bit melodramatic though, especially while describing the reynard Heinrich assassination. A really great tour overall.

We took this tour while we were in Prague at the weekend with our guide Margreta. My husband is very interested in WW2 and was really looking forward to the tour and I just tagged along but I must say I enjoyed the tour a lot more than I expected. As other reviewers already stated the tour took us around... More

Found a leaflet advertising this walking tour in the hotel. Just turned up - no need to book - and we were the only people on the tour that day. Meet by the Powder Tower near Republic Square and look out for a person with a black umbrella. Our guide was Sonia and she was very well informed and personable.... More

I have been doing tours in Europe for while now and this is one is right at the top of my favorites. Not only the guide (George in English) was passionate, friendly and with good knowledge but the places you visit are out of the reach of the regular public, like the underground area of the astronomical clock. Amazing place... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
