It was so nice to see the city of Prague from another perspective than the usual. If you like history mixed with a bunch of city views. And no need to be sporty (E-bikes). It's also a nice way to see a lot of things in a short period. You can visit the places you liked the most afterwards. I was alone. But the groups are never really big (4 or 5 max). The guide did a nice job explaining all kinds of facts and figures. The visit to the museum of communism is worth it (it is included).

Great tour, great guide (Mikhail). Heavy and depressing history for Czech peoples over this past century but tour touches on main historical events related to Nazi occupation, and Russian control. Great way to zoom around City on E-bikes in between stops. Highly recommend! I’d say it’s the best tour in Prague.

A wonderful museum. Very well exhibited. Learned a lot during my visit. Sad that many of the repressive tactics are still used around the world.

Super cool experience, a history lesson and lots of reading to do so plan about 1-1.5h for this visit!

Very informative and vivid representations of the history of the country.
