    Interesting and informative tour
    We had an excellent tour with Michal. He was really informative and very knowledgeable about history . He was also very professional but still friendly. I really recommend taking this tour. You learn a lot of information about the the city and the castle which you probably would never know if you didn't take the tour.

    Prague New Town and Jewish Quarter Walking Tour
    I can’t remember the guide’s name. His name started with a K. Tour was on Tuesday 18/6. He was really informative about the history of Czechia and Prague, and took time to relate various major events at the places where they occurred. This included what life was like under Nazi occupation including their treatment of the Jewish population. He also covered life and events under Russian occupation. In fact, Czechia has not been independent often nor for long in the last 500-600 years. K also talked about the cultural history including Kafka, Mozart, other composers and writers, architects, and a contemporary sculptor called David Černy. It was a great tour and I thoroughly recommend it!

    The walking tour that you shouldn’t miss.
    Great eye opener on the history of Prague. Our guide, Michal, was great! Provided tons of great and interesting information, it was a perfect 3 hour tour. Jumping onto their next old town tour today!

    This tour was one of our top Prague highlights.
    My wife and I had a wonderfully educational and interesting day with Jack. Even though this was our second time visiting Prague and we had already been here for a week, we learned new history about some of the buildings around Wenceslas square even before setting off on our trip to Terezin. Jack’s knowledge about the history of Terezin added more to our experience than any guidebook could offer, and we also gained broader understanding of Czech history in general from our discussions during the day. This important and unique site is worth a thorough visit with such an excellent guide, there is much to learn here. We have toured Europe often in the past ten years, and Jack is one of the top guides we have had anywhere; knowledgeable, patient, and enthusiastic.

    Informative and Fascinating Look at Prague.
    The guide, Nick, was amazing: knowledgeable, friendly, very good English and a perfect pace. We saw and truly experienced a lot, and we came away with a much deeper understanding and appreciation for the Czech people and history. It is, however, a long tour and a lot of walking, and while we are in good shape for our mid-sixties, most of our age I doubt would keep up. That being said, I highly recommend this tour.

    Mark is THE BEST - Awesome Tour
    Amazing walking tour to most of the places on my list to visit this trip. Mark was absolutely fabulous! Best tour guide ever! He’s a walking history aficionado and made the walk extremely interesting. I appreciate the humor he tucked in here and there, too. Super enjoyable day, and I can’t imagine a better tour in Prague. Let Mark make your day! Book this tour!

    Excellent tour with Jack, catered to our interests
    One of the best guided tours we’ve ever experienced. Honza (Jack) was friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about Prague and his country. We were lucky to have a private tour with just the four of us. Pace was comfortable with stops for rest and bathroom breaks. Covered lots of ground walking, city is compact. Would strongly recommend this tour!

    Prague Castle walking tour
    We recently took a walking tour in Prague and were fortunate to have Honza (Jack) as our guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable, bringing the city's rich history to life with fascinating stories and detailed information. His passion for Prague's culture and heritage was evident, and he answered all our questions with ease. The tour was well-paced, allowing us to soak in the beautiful sights and hidden gems of the city. We highly recommend Honza (Jack) for anyone looking to explore Prague in depth. An exceptional experience overall!

    Very focused on Prague Castle.
    The tour included tickets to the Prague Castle, and that was, for the most part (say 85%), the focus of the tour. This wasn't really a problem for us, as we had already seen quite a bit of the city the day before. Our guide Jack was very knowledgeable, friendly and patient.

    Going on this self walking tour is good but heavy on the heart sad story to say the least! It should be a lesson to everyone with a moral compass.

I’m quite a nervous person but I love history. Michal was so easy to talk to and he had so much information to share. He really brought the history he was telling alive. We would 100% go back to Prague just to see Michal and for him to tell us more!

Mike was a brilliant tour guide, his knowledge was outstanding and made our few hours together fly by. You will learn so much that would be left undiscovered without doing the tour. As well as giving us all the information and taking us to the sites Mike shared WW2 interests such as books and films which was above and beyond what we were expecting. You won’t be disappointed. We cannot praise Mike enough, he really looked after us.

My husband and I took this tour on a recent visit to Prague. As we were the only two booked on to the tour, we had our wonderful tour guide, Honza to ourselves and with his excellent knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject we had a fantastic afternoon learning all about Operation Anthropoid and various details about World War 2 and it's impact on the Czech people. We could not have had a better guide who was patient and took time to answer our questions fully and gave us adequate time to look around the church and crypt. If you are interested in this type of tour it is definitely worth going and seeing the sights for yourself. (If you have seen the film, Anthropoid beforehand being in the actual area will seem surreal - and quite emotional ) Thanks Honza!!!!!

Bought as a birthday present for my partner on our holiday and I can honestly say it more than exceeded expectations. Our tour guide Michal was fantastic; he was helpful, friendly, and incredibly knowledgable (especially considering our own keen interest in history) and the whole tour was entertaining as well as profound. I cannot recommend it well enough.

My father and I were in Prague for a short two days and were looking to get a lay of the land as well as educate ourselves on the history and perhaps some of the everyday culture. We took the WW2-Communism tour with Honza and he weaved stories with specific heroes and foes along with major events happening in the past. Along the way, we also learned a bit about our guide, which for us was interesting as we do not encounter Czech people everyday where we are from. He was friendly and seemed to know his stuff. He readily recommended many other interesting activities, sites and movies for us. Would definitely recommend to anyone this tour to anyone who wants to learn about Prague's history and place a bit more as well as to have a comfortable walk through the main parts of town with an informative guide.

Thank you for such detailed review! We're really happy you had such good time with Honza and make sure to let him know how much you enjoyed it. Honza is truly passionate about our modern history and is nice to hear people appreciate all the knowledge he loves to share :-) next time you come you can let us know - we'll be happy to show you more of Prague and the Czech Republic!

A fantastic afternoon in Prague spent touring the key sights and events of WW2 . Michal our tour guide was superb. Very engaging and extremely knowledgeable about Prague and it's history. He really brought the experience to life and some of the events he described really resonated among our small group in terms of what this city and it's people experienced during WW2. Michal answered any and all questions asked and indeed it felt that you were actually being shown round by a friend rather than a guide. A thoroughly excellent afternoon spent with a brilliant tour guide. The highlight for me was Sty Cyrils and the Crypt where the Czech Paratroopers involved in operation Anthropoid took refuge and made their final stand. A very moving and thoroughly absorbing experience. I would absolutely recommend this tour and certainly Michal as a guide who made the experience so good.

An excellent tour and guide With John . So informative and gave us a really good on-site into the war in Prague. The high light being the Hindrick story. We felt he personalised it for us and was extremely knowledgeable in all areas of history adding lots of stories as we passed by different places. Would defiantly recommend it.

Jack was super informative, engaging, and personable! The 3.5 hour tour flew by because it was so interesting. He even recommended a brewery off the beaten path that ended up being one of our favorite meals in Prague! This tour was definitely the highlight of our trip.

Martin was an excellent guide and bubbly. His length of knowledge on the Czech Republic is vast. Martin was also a funny man with good sense of humour which made the tour amazing. I definitely recommend him as a guide as you will not be getting bored.

His knowledge on the history and entirety was outstanding. When I come again I will come again to have Martin as the guide.
