A walking tour to explain how Prague escaped bombing, but was dramatically changed during WWII. After the tour you have information to continue looking at the City as you walk around.

We had Tate as our guide, he knew what he was talking about and made it absolutely impossible to stop listening to all the interesting things about the political Czech history. And he was very funny, which made it that much better

Our tour guide is knowledgable and fun. The sites we went were not exactly tie with the context tho. But we still find the tour insightful and worth joining. You will know the other side of Prague!

Great tour with excellent guides. Walking in the footsteps of history was fascinating. Walking the underground tunnels gave more insight to the conditions of Prague during WWII.

If there is one tour you take in Prague it is this one. And make sure you ask from Romika. She had lots of original images from the time of the assassination of Heydrich which she shared with us.

We didn't know they only took cash until the end of the tour so save yourself the trouble of getting money from the ATM and bring 600 CZK/person. The underground hideout was interesting but we didn't really see too much of the underground city (in...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods 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
