  • Rating: 4 “Good tour with a knowledgeable guide.”

    Reviewed by Angela – Southampton, United Kingdom on June 16, 2015 Good review that was not too big. Found the dressing up element uncomfortable to watch.

  • Rating: 5 “Not to be missed...”

    Reviewed by Patricia – Portland, United States on May 7, 2015 Very interesting tour. I would highly recommended it to anyone wanting to learn more about communism during and after WW II. The tour of the bunker was the highlight.

  • Rating: 5 “Truly a highlight of a wonderful trip to Prague.”

    Reviewed by Eric – Fernandina Beach, United States on May 30, 2014 Tour guide 'Brett' was a history major at Charles University and his knowledge of the communist period in Prague and CZ was extensive and shared fluidly and interestingly. Starting with a walking tour new Old Town Square we learned of the heros of rebellion against communism and the powerful leaders during the period from post WW I throu to formation of Czech Republic. A short metro ride and walk took us to the bunker where we learned more as we descended to see exhibits and feel what it might have been like to use the bunker - which, in fact, is still operational and maintained weekly 'just in case'. Highly recommended for your next trip to Prague!

  • Rating: 4 “Interesting insight into the life in communist times”

    Reviewed by Jan – Hamburg, Germany on July 21, 2013 Our guide Honza took us on an entertaining and informative tour through the history and alongside important buildings of the communist times in Prague. The bunker at the end of the tour was impressive.

  • Rating: 5 “interesting, educative tour”
