Truffle Hunting Tour
I would say the Truffle Hunt is a good choice, if you are bored by classical sightseeing and have a few hours spare to do something different in a slow pace. The price my look quite elevated at first glance, but after careful calculation and considering the current high price of truffles e.g. in France, it is surely adequate and worth it.
Before the tour, I was a bit sceptic, because of the « mafia stories » announced on the websites. I was not sure, what exactly to expect and imagined someone telling half-true exaggerated stories. However, the tour guide was really competent, having a scientific background and knowing well his field. I have tried truffles several times before, but now I learned something new about their biology and difficulty to search for them, as well as the truffle business, hunting techniques and dog training.
Personally, I was quite surprised that the dog is very agile, a real hunting dog, as I would have assumed that ideally, truffle hunters use some calm, slow dog races.
+ something different, competent guide, interesting info not only about truffles, but also about Prague and Czech Republic, ideal length, lunch included, probably good for all ages, as well as families, includes some nice views of Prague, possibility to taste uncommon food
