Amazing unique experience
for Petr, Ela and Jan’s tour (Prague Truffle Hunting Tour with Luxury Lunch)
Exploring the nature side of Prague with Petr and Nela gave us a fresh perspective of the city. Petr was very patient with us when he explained how he trained Nela to hunt for truffle. Needless to say, Nela was a darling and we all loved her. Truffle hunting was one of the main highlights of our stay in Prague!
Calling all foodies, nature lovers, and dog people!

What do parasitology, canine operant conditioning, and haute cuisine have in common?

Petr Synek can tell you -- with the help of his beautiful Weimaraner, Nela. For the past two years, the two of them have been hunting truffles. Petr, a parasitology Ph.D. candidate at Charles University, started truffle hunting as a side business to supplement his academic work. His canine companion Nela is an excellent example of the traditional Czech expertise in dog training, which you will see firsthand as she bounds through the trees hunting for treasure.

On this tour, you will see some of the beautiful parks and gardens that Prague has to offer as Petr shows you how Nela was trained to seek out delicious, expensive fungi. You will learn about the biology and history of truffles in Europe, including right here in the Czech Republic. Best of all for foodies, you'll get to taste them yourself at a classic Czech restaurant near the Vltava in a dish prepared just for you using truffles from Petr's own stash.

If you're tired of wading through the crowds on Charles Bridge and eating tourist fare in Old Town, come walk off the beaten path and discover the funky -- and delicious -- world of truffles in Prague.

Petr and his dog Nelly were incredible! We visited this beautiful city to see our Philadelphia Flyers play the Chicago Blackhawks in the NHL Global Series. The trip was absolutely amazing and our truffle hunt/tour with Petr and his dog Nelly (I hope I'm spelling it correct haha) made the trip Perfect! What an amazing time and well worth it. We look forward to this tour again the next time we come back to Prague. Thank you so much for making this experience as perfect as possible! Best, Dan and Marisa
