Full description
Begin your tour at the crypt where the paratroopers where hiding for three weeks. Your private guide will explain tell the story of the crypt. You will have enough time to explore on your own, before traveling around the church upstairs to see the spots of the final fight. Next, you'll visit the area where the high-ranked Nazi official Reinhard Heydrich was assassinated by the two paratroopers, Gabčík and Kubiš. The street does not look like it used to in 1942, now containing a small monument next to which you will talk about the moments surrounding the assassination. Finally, you will drive to Lidice, a village which was burned down in June of 1942. The inhabitants were either killed on the spot or sent to concentration camps as a brutal Nazi revenge to the assassination and killing of Heydrich. You will discover a large memorial and meadow together with a statue of 82 children, representing the kids from Lidice that were murdered on this occasion. At the conclusion of your educational experience, you tour ends in the Prague city center.

Eva was an excellent and informative guide. She made the history come alive. We learned in detail about the operation and it was very moving for all of us. I would recommend this tour.

The guide was brilliant , well worth the money , if I was going to picky when we arrived at the church , there was a note on the door that the crypt was closed to the public we were really looking forward to going in .
