I went on the Prague WWII and Operation Anthropoid tour and Dana was my guide. The tour was absolutely fantastic and is a must for history lovers and Prague tourists alike. If you want to understand the history of the city/Czechoslovakia before and during the war as well as the importance of Czech resistance to Nazism then this is the tour for you! Dana was an incredible guide, answering any questions that I had regarding the resistance/Czechoslovakia in WWII and brought the history to life on our 3 hour walk through Prague. The tour ends at the crypt of St. Cyril and Methodius cathedral, an extremely emotional experience. Thank you Dana!

The city tour with Olga was very interesting and helpful. She has a very competent knowledge of Prague and the whole history of Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia and the Habsburgs. Highly recommended, the 3 hours are time well invested to learn a lot of new things about Prague. Thank you very much

The lady with the red hair ( I’m sorry, I forget her name) was just brilliant. She knew every little detail about the history of Prague and it’s rulers. She could answer any question asked if her. I loved how proud she is of her city and it really shows in her tour. Highly recommend!!!
