Martin, our guide, was fantastic. Knew lots of history. He took us into the public library of the city of Prague because I am a librarian and he thought I would be interested. I was! Very thoughtful, educated young man. Great Tour guide.

Mike was a great guide who gave a lot perspective to the stories of what life was like under both Nazi and Communist rule. We did quite a lot of walking to many of the important sites and heard the major stories of Czech history under these regimes. I definitely want to learn more.

The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable, with a real enthusiasm for the subject which was very specialist. He brought the tour alive with old photos and articles on his tablet.

A walking tour such as this is a great way to see some of the hidden aspects of Prague, highly recommended

Our layover flight was cancelled so we missed our originally scheduled small tour. For a small additional fee, they booked us a private tour and it was well worth it! We very much appreciated Max working to fit us in as we only had 2 full days in Prague. Michael was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable. The most interesting part for us was learning about Reinhard Heydrich's assassination right in Prague. We LOVED Prague

Again, we were fortunate to be a group of two with another personalised tour. Our guide was very experienced and knowledgeable. We walked and talked for hours about Prague from WW2 to today through both the NAZI and COMMUNIST Era. We learnt and discovered so much about the history of this town. I would certainly recommend this tour. It is a must do.

Excellent tour! Guide personable and extremely knowledgeable. The walk around Prague and hearing the history of World War II and invasion of Nazi and communist regimes was so interesting and should be remembered. Excellent tour!

The tour was excellent. Our tour guide, Mike, knew the history of the era extremely well. He recounted interesting stories. It rained during the entire tour but none of us thought
of leaving. I would highly recommend this tour.

We were the only people on this tour and were very impressed with our young guide's knowledge of both WW11 and the Communist history. His family had lived in Prague during both eras so he had personal stories to share as well as facts.

This was a remarkable experience led by a very knowledgeable and experienced person. We visited sites and learned about historical, political, architectural and cultural events that brought the story of Prague and its people (artists, sculptors, composers, monarchs, saints, politicians, educators, and working people) to life as a whole. It was extraordinary!

While not a native English speaker, our guide's mastery of the language was strong. Even stronger was his passion for the subjects. His ability to weave in history, modern day Prague and rich storytelling together was top notch.

This tour was fantastic! The guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer all questions! It's clear he was passionate about his job!

Only downside, the location is not marked at all and extremely difficult to find.

This guide was full of zest and proud of his country's heritage. He actually tailored the walk to suit our request to focus more on the life during the Cold War era, through the Nazi era, post-Cold War till the fall of Communism. Very rich knowledge and fruitful sharing.

Our tour guide was a native Czech who grew up in Prague and therefore had a vast knowledge of the events of WWII and Communism in Prague. The tour was a little long (3+ hours) but very extensive and interesting. Some highlights were the crypt where the assassins of Reinhard Heydrich hid out in 1942, and the memorial to those who lived through communism. If you like history, all in the all this is a great tour.

Except for the weather we had a fantastic tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and as we very only a family of 3 it was like a private tour so we could ask him all sorts of questions. Great tour !
