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!
