Simona was very informative, and very responsive to questions. She made sure that we have a great experience. Thanks for it . Highly recommended, until now my idea of Prague missed this important part of its history. But I highly recommend to know about this part of history and its super interesting to know.

We found the tour very interesting and informative. The guide petra went into a lot of detail on every aspect of the tour and was very engaging with all of us. There was quite a bit of walking which on a bad day mighn't be so pleasant but we had a lovely day. I would really recommend this tour.

This was an excellent tour, and Jakob our tour guide was very knowledgeable on any aspect of subject matter. Jakob encouraged any questions from the party of 9 It was a very interesting talk and walk for 3 hours and Jakob really brought the history to life for you. The last part of the walk centred on the Saints Cyril and Methodius Cathederal and I felt with the gradual build up of Jakob`s talk on Operation Anthropoid you had gradually immersed yourself back to that time and by the time you entered the crypt you could feel the emotions of those last few hours of those brave men.
