So great
for Petr, Ela and Jan’s tour (Prague Truffle Hunting Tour with Luxury Lunch)
The truffle hunt was so great and our tour guide was very informative, friendly, and helpful. She even gave us recommendations for other places and things to do in Prague. The lunch we ate after was very delicious. Overall had a great experience and would suggestion friends to do it.
Different to other tours
for Petr, Ela and Jan’s tour (Prague Truffle Hunting Tour with Luxury Lunch)
This is a great tour, that is quite different to other tours around. The tour begins by learning about the truffle industry followed by a lovely walk up Pertrin Hill watchling the beautiful Nela hunt for truffles. The tour ends with a quite nice meal that includes truffles.
Peter & Nela provide a great morning out.
Fun, engaging, informativr tour
for Petr, Ela and Jan’s tour (Prague Truffle Hunting Tour with Luxury Lunch)
Petr was an extremely informative guide and had a lot of knowledge and insight in the truffle industry in Europe.

He was also nice and welcomed any questions or comments. His dog is really energetic and cute too! I strongly recommend him for a different taste of prague.
