He spoke very good English and has a very complete knowledge of his subject. In fact if we had had the time, I would have paid him again just to sit in a cafe and chat about the Czech... More

Could not recommend this tour more! We had a great time and really felt that it was informative and interesting. You get to see a lot and the comparison of pictures from that time to the location now is very cool! Jacob was a great guide and had a lot of information to share. He was able to answer every...

Although it was a cold day. I thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour which lasted 2 hours and ended in the Old Square with a short tour of the underground tunnels underneath the town hall. Our tour guide Sonia was very knowledgeable and went into great detail about the German occupancy of Prague during the war and the attempted assassination of... More

We took this tour with our teenage son and college age son and friend studying abroad this semester. Everyone in the group loved it. Our tour guide was Margaritte. She was really well informed. It is a walking tour in Old Town covering WW2, the Nazi invasion, and the communist takeover. So many interesting details supported with photos and the... More

Having read operation Anthropoid I was keen to learn more about Czech history during WWII. The guide brought past to life with his knowledge and enthusiasm. The tower with the astronomical clock used to be part of a large building destroyed by the Germans something you'd would admire and walk by if you didn't know its history. Well presented, interesting... More

Having read previous reviews we decided to spend part of our first day on this tour. We turned up just before 2pm as explained by a previous reviewer outside the powder tower to look for the man with the black umbrella and there he was. No need to pay upfront only at the end if you felt it was worth... More

George took us on the WW2 tour of Prague this morning. All tours are made by the quality of the guide and I must say that our guide George was excellent. He spoke great English, was highly knowledgable and was able to talk around the tour script. Very personal service that I highly recommend!

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
