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...

This was fascinating and our tour guide (34ish woman, can’t remember her name as it was a few days ago) was wonderful- very knowledgable and her family experienced everything first hand which enhanced the tour, and she was very informative and not biased. Her English was excellent. This was our favourite activity in Prague and we thoroughly recommend it.

A truly fascinating look back at Czech life under communism. This was my first visit to Prague and I find the place an absolute joy, so cultured and civilised with lovely people who make you feel welcome. The guided tour was a timely reminder that we shouldn't take these things for granted. The guide was very informative and showed us many interesting sights. Recommended.
