This tour is amazing and the information learned is not anything you'll read in any book. The highlight of this tour is accessing the underground area below the city that was the holdout of the resistance. Dress warm and soak up the history of the...More

We booked this through our hotel, though you could have easily turned up at the Powder Tower and look out for a man with the black umbrella. The tour takes 2 hours, but because Jacob is so passionate about the history, our tour overran, not...More

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

Price is 600Kč (500 for students), tour starts at 14:00 but I'd get there 10-15 minutes or so sooner, just so you can find the guide and meet the other people on the tour :)

Oskar Schindler Museum or Galicia Jewish Museum (5 Replies)
I am reposting this because my first version wasn't very clear. We are already planning to visit the Museum of World War II in Gdansk and to visit Auschwitz. We only have time to visit one more museum--either the Oskar Schindler Museum or the Galicia Jewish Museum. For ONLY the people who have visited both museums, which do you think is better and would better complement the other two sites that we are visiting? Thank you for your help.

It depends on what you're interested in - the Museum in the Schindler Factory is a branch of the National Museum and has a much bigger and more comprehensive collection and exhibit of life in Krakow during WW2 (with a small exhibit dedicated to Schindler). The Galicia Museum is also fantastic but much smaller, and focuses mostly on the Jewish life in Galicia before WW2.

Outstanding!!!!!! I loved this tour. It's worth the price. I took the tour in February and loved it. I really learned a lot and found Marek to be authentic and very engaging. I actually wished Marek offered more tours because I would take anything he offered. You won't be disappointed.
