We booked this as a group tour - but we were the only participants but that didnt deter our young Guide Martin - who was so knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. He guided us around Prague explaining in details the various coded operations for the fighters - he also did an excelent job in explaining the background to the story. We were very impressed - he kept to his timetable and got us to the crypt on time to visit it. A very engaging story - very sad - but so well told and with a great amount of detail and with great enthusiasm - Martin was an excellent guide and we would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the City. Well worth the time and good value for money. Thank you Martin.

I went on the Prague WWII and Operation Anthropoid tour and Dana was my guide. The tour was absolutely fantastic and is a must for history lovers and Prague tourists alike. If you want to understand the history of the city/Czechoslovakia before and during the war as well as the importance of Czech resistance to Nazism then this is the tour for you! Dana was an incredible guide, answering any questions that I had regarding the resistance/Czechoslovakia in WWII and brought the history to life on our 3 hour walk through Prague. The tour ends at the crypt of St. Cyril and Methodius cathedral, an extremely emotional experience. Thank you Dana!

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.
