    We were a small group of only three people plus our guide. She was very well spoken, knew a lot about the history of Prague and of course as well of the specifics during WWII. I learned a lot of new details I hadn’t heard before even though I already knew a lot about the Third Reich and WWII. And I really enjoyed that our guide showed us a lot of pictures.

    A must-do in Prague! Our tour guide, George was hilarious, knowledgeable, and a lot of fun. Not only did he show us and discuss interesting WW-2 history, but he made it a point to discuss many other historical happenings, buildings, and facts along the way. It was an enjoyable and informative experience, one that we would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Prague.

    Very interesting, Jacob was excellent. My 19 year old son particularly enjoyed it as he likes history. We visited the underground caverns under the clock tower which were interesting. Would have liked to visit the churches where the martyrs were killed as well. Maybe they could add this to the tour and increase the price?
