Description

Begin your journey at the medieval Convent of Saint Agnes of Bohemia. In a city filled with churches, locals know it is one of the best places to take a relaxing walk and absorb the remarkable Gothic architecture. Try your hand at writing a letter with an old quill like the nuns used to in their printing workshops.

For centuries Prague has benefited from many international influences, yet the Italian influence on food stands out. Experience this in the mini-empire of the chef Riccardo Lucque. Stop at his comfortable bistro and deli and take an exclusive kitchen tour.

Pass the amazing Municipal House and the beautiful Theater of the Estates. Mozart conducted the world premiere of his opera “Don Giovanni” here in 1787. Hungry again? The trendy Bistro Špejle takes its name from the skewer used to serve almost everything on the menu. Sample many Czech classics in just a

Brilliant, highlight of my trip!
Petr was absolutely wonderful and very knowledgeable about the beer, food and history. I had a brilliant evening exploring bars off the beaten tourist track and I felt like I got to see some places I would never have discovered on my own. The local beers he recommended were superb and tailored to my tastes perfectly. Petr was a delight to spend time with and made me feel very at ease.

I would more than happily recommend this tour to anyone, it was brilliant.
A Wonderful Night in Prague
Jiri was a very good tour guide. Really appreciated his knowledge and extra touch to the evening. We also lucked out on getting a great group of people to share beer and tapas with. One of our best nights in Prague. I highly recommend this tour.
Great Tour!
Our guide, Tomas, took us to 4 places that were local and off the beaten path.. We had a small group of approx 10 folks from Norway, US, South Africa and more. Tasted many types of locally brewed beers and ate fried bread, pickled sausage, marinated camembert, strudel and other things (I didn't taste the cow tongue, but others did). Tomas was a great guide. We are a bit older and had to work at times to keep his fast pace, but I would gladly do it again!
