Our guide, Klara, was absolutely brilliant. She covered so much with us and all done with the hugely personal touch of her own experiences. She was also happy enough to chat through many different questions and engage with us on our own personal stories. The tour was for 8, but it ended up being just us, which meant extra VIP treatment as able to take all the more advantage of Klara’s expert knowledge. I also feel this tour seems unique compared to the others as it covers elements of both world war 2 and the Cold War. This tour was worth the money and more and the 3.5 hours went so fast - thanks so much Klara!

We learned so much on this tour! Theresa was so knowledgeable and had personal experiences to share with us. We highly recommend her for tours of Prague. She has a wonderful sense of humor and was able to take us in a small group so we could ask questions. Best tour in Prague.

Klara was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. It was just the two of us, she made it really special and unique. Her personal experiences with communism really added to the value of the tour. Really enjoyed it and recommend to anyone.

well worth the money but need to know that you need to get actual tickets at some of the venues and not just use the card.

Perfect amount of time. Very interactive in the bunker and very informative tour guide!!
