What a great tour! This tour offered so much insight into not only WWII but also also the hardship the Czechs have had to endure in the decades preceding the end of the war under Communist rule. Martin delivered the tour in a very informative and thought provoking way. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend to anyone interested in either European/WWII/Communist history. Martin tries his utmost to deliver an interesting tour for everyone. As a person who loves a good walking tour wherever we go this is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

As a History teacher I had high expectations for this tour and Martin, our guide did not disappoint. He charmingly apologized for his accent at the outset but emphasised that we must stop him and ask for clarification if we did not understand him. His use of WWII photos, depicting places where we were actually standing really brought home the relevance of his tour. In explaining the historical context of the Nazi regime and its effect on Prague, Martin made the story of the Czech resistance and assassination of the "Butcher of Prague" very real. A great tour for history buffs!

Our guide was friendly and informative in showing us key places of WWII occupied Prague. We visited key spots (including underground tunnels) where our guide showed pictures from the WWII era of the exact same spot. Our guide painted great pictures to help you imagine you were there. Our only downside was it was a bit pricey compared to other walking tours we have taken.

This tour was great, very informative and interesting. Lasts 2 hours which includes a tram ride to finish the story. Our guide Marek was such a nice guy and so helpful when it came to answering any questions that came up. Well worth your time if in Prague.

Fantastic, with me being English and my wife being Russian we had NO problem with understanding, it was relaxed, very informative and worth it, Marek exposed another hidden layer in Prague........he brought so much to our attention that we had walked past days prior. He is very patriotic and for good reason, he gave us many opportunity for question to which he answered immediately, he has a wealth of knowledge that must be shared to the rest of the world about the NAZI hence men and their evil doctrine- God bless the Czechs in all that they have done and continue to do.
