Description

You’ll meet your guide at Křižovnické náměstí in front of the Charles Bridge, where he’ll introduce you to the history of winemaking from the times of ancient Egypt through to the Roman Empire. You’ll learn who became the patron saint of local winemakers and which king brought winemaking to a whole new level in our country.

During a pleasant walk through the city centre, your guide will point out places that were closely connected to wine, outline the laws that winemakers in medieval Prague had to follow and tell you about the privileges and prerogatives they had been granted. Using many pictures and maps of medieval Prague, he’ll explain why Prague was once called the City of Wine and why winemaking decreased in the 19th century.

Several tales about the competition between Prague’s famous wine bars will follow. Your guide will then take you to a famous local wine bar to taste 5 wines produced in the Bohemian and Moravian regions.

Prague WWII Tour
Our WWII tour was awesome!! Our tour guide Jack was very knowledgeable about the events that took place during that time period and the atrocities that the Nazis did to the Czech people.

Jack also went over the events of being occupied by the Russians after the fall of Hitler. The things these people had to endure is just heart breaking.

He even took us off the beaten path for lunch and a pint and recommended a locals bar for us to check out that night after the tour.

Highly recommend this tour and hopefully you'll be lucky enough to have Jack showing you around!!
Fantastic experience
Mike is a very knowledgeable guide we learned so much. And loved the experience.
Definitely we’ll use him again.
Great tour
Mike, our tour guide was great. He was very well organized and informative. My large family were the only people on the tour so we got to ask lots of questions and Mike was great with answering them. He is very knowledgable and passionate and proud of the history of the Czech Replublic.
