Fantastic tour!!

My husband and I had the most amazing Communism and Bunker Walking Tour in Prague with Tereza. It was so incredible to hear Tereza tell us about Prague and its citizens during the 41 years it suffered through communism because she lived through it. The history and in depth lessons she gave us was amazing. She has the most optimistic and vibrant personality! She coordinated the tour very well and answered so many questions we had about the city and culture of Prague. We highly recommend this tour and if you can arrange for Tereza to be your guide, do it!!!

I was lucky enough to have Tereza as my guide and as tourists are now returning the Prague it was just us two. I could not have asked for a better experience in Prague, learning about this important part of its history. Tereza really made it all come to life and shared her own memories as well, and this was very powerful. Not to be missed if in Prague!

Hello, both me and Tereza were super happy that you've made a booking for the Communism & Bunker Tour after the 3,5-month Covid break. It is exciting to see tourists coming back to Prague. Thank you for sharing that Tereza made the history come to life through her own memories, she is amazing storyteller. I wish you lovely travels in the future. Kind regards, Klara, founder & guide.
