Worth Every (S)cent!
There was so much to reflect on after this very personalized tour that it is difficult to pinpoint the highlights! First, Nela the hunter and Ela the guide were both delightful and clearly experts in their respective fields. We learned about the mysterious truffle business, dog training methods, different truffle types and growing conditions, and got to watch Nela in action. As a long time dog owner, I learned that obedience training stifles the hunter’s enthusiasm, which explained Nela’s slight unruliness (which wasn’t bothersome in any case.) There were a couple of people in our group who grumbled about the food (they were Vegans) but honestly, this lovely, informative trek through a beautiful park with a thoughtful guide is not about the lunch (my pasta and beer were delicious)! However, you will receive a pungent truffle to take home and add to virtually anything edible. The strange aroma and exotic flavor will hopefully remind you of one of the best little adventures you can treat yourself to while visiting Prague. Do it!
