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.

Great experience. Excellent tour due to the fact that our tour guide Dana, was extremely knowledgeable and added anecdotal comments that made it most interesting. Be prepared to immerse in the history of that period of time.
