Very interesting tour about Czech communism and the Velvet Revolution. The guide was very passionate about telling the story about political oppression and how the Czech people fought for their rights/lives. The bunker was a shock and full of very interesting stuff. The displays need some better organising. We enjoyed the tour but they need to limit the numbers to about 15 (we had 27) for a better experience.

The tour guide was AMAZING. The bunkers were cool. The tour started off strong with lots of great Prague history that helped me understand the city I was visiting on a deeper level. However, the tour of the bunker itself wasn't as exciting. It was a lot of dragged on detail about the specifics of a bunker that was never used. I would have preferred to hear the history of Prague while at the bunker (versus while standing waiting for the tour to start), especially with the visuals they had in the bunker relating to that information. And hearing more about why the bunkers were built or what threat they were against. The tour could have been an hour shorter without the unnecessary details about the building and logistics of the unused bunker

The best part of this tour is the guide who was so fun and knowledgeable.. would have liked a bit more on the history and a little less on the actual nuclear bunker which was just ok... The tour needs to reduce the time in the bunker and increase the communism history content but we had a very enjoyable afternoon...
