This was fantastic. Not just for historians, some really interesting facts about Czech Republic and Prague. The guide Ladislav made it interesting for the group which was mixed with youger children too. It was about 3hrs, but went quite quick. (Half outdoor and half indoors).

Highly recommended tour. Our tour guide was so full of knowledge, passionate and enthusiastic about the tour. He brought it to life! The bunker was fabulous and the wall around Prague seeing all the important sights. I would fully recommend this to anyone who wants to see Prague, find out about the history and be fully entertained and interested.

What an extremely interesting tour this was. Carel was a fantastic and enthusiastic guide providing lots of information. Firstly we went on a short walk looking at some historically relevant places then we went on a tram to the bunker. The bunker was surprisingly large and quite thought provoking. Everyone should do this tour if you have the slightest interest in what living under Communist rule was like and what you could and couldn't do.
