What is the TASTE OF Prague Food Tour?
Our Taste of Prague Food Tour is a nice walk with a local Prague foodie friend who shows you where the best restaurants in Prague are, explains why the locals eat the, what Czech food means to them, and how it compares to the food served where you’re home.
Chang. Noma. Franklin BBQ. Biodynamic. Heston. In’n'Out. If these ring a bell, we speak the same language. But the Prague Food Tour is not just about delicious Czech food. We want to "explain" the Czechs to you, and the delicious Czech cuisine is just an angle. How do we live? What do we like? Do we rent, or do we own? Are colleges free? Sure, we will eat great Czech food. But we like to talk when we eat. And we will answer every question you'll have. Or at least we'll try.
We’ll have fun, too. Eight guests per group only. The way it should be. We want to blend in the great restaurants in Prague. Forget about tours and guides. We want to show you the Prague restaurants we love and tell you what’s good there. And as we get to know you, we'll give you customized travel tips for the rest of your Prague trip. You’re on vacation and you should enjoy Prague to the fullest… stomach.
WHAT'S INCLUDED in the TASTE OF Prague Food Tour?
- A guided culinary tour of Prague through the best restaurants in Prague in a small group. We will start in the Old Town, walk through the New Town, and visit the up-and-coming Prague district of Karlin, the district where it's all happening at the moment.
- Variety of tastings in Prague restaurants, bistros, bars and establishments we like to visit. You’ll be full by the time we’re done.
- Some Czech alcohol. Come on. You’re on vacation. Have you heard of Czech beer, anyone?
- Our Prague Foodie Map in pdf format once you make a booking, so that you can plan your Prague stay ahead of time.
- Written insider tips on proper Prague souvenirs and on things to do in Prague that simply make sense.
- Summary email: everything we tasted, the route we covered, things we talked about, and other travel tips.
- We run private food tours for smaller/bigger groups, too. Just drop us an email. We’ll figure it out.
- We need to know about your food allergies or dietary restrictions. Really, we do.
- We serve some alcohol. Please ask for non-alcoholic options.
- We will walk a bit. About a mile in total we think. Please let us know if it’s a problem.
What is the difference between the Taste of Prague Food Tour and the Foodie tour?
We believe both tours are interchangeable - to some degree. We visit great food places in both tours, just the paths are different. The Prague Foodie Tour focuses more on the current Prague food scene and the present life in Prague. We may taste a bit unusual foods - cracklings, lard, tongue, etc., and we will follow an off-the-beaten-path. The Prague Food Tour is a crash course in the local life in Prague: we talk about the development of our country in last 100 years (we talk about the occupation, Communism, Velvet Revolution - all the things that influenced who we are and what we eat today) and we'll have traditional Czech food with a modern twist.
How much food will be served?
We believe the dishes served make for a full meal, and most of our guests say they’re full at the end of the walk, often canceling their dinner reservations. We Czechs like big portions. That said, we believe the quantity of the food served is not the only, or the primary metric of a food tour, and we will always give preference to quality over quantity, and our primary goal is to show you what’s good here.
I am a vegetarian/vegan/lactose intolerant/celiac. Is the walk for me?
Tough question that deserves an honest answer. We do our best to accommodate every preference, allergy or restriction. That said, we still want to show a true image of what Czech food is all about. For instance, Czech cuisine relies heavily on the use of butter, and thus has very little to offer to vegans and people intolerant to processed milk. We could, of course, serve some vegan dishes but we would be lying if we said it was in any way representative of the Czech cuisine. Czech cuisine also focuses on meat, and while we do love to take vegetarians on our walk, a limited assortment of dishes should be expected if you want to eat Czech and not eat meat. Celiacs (people with gluten allergy) are welcome to join our walks, with a slightly modified and/or limited assortment of dishes. We do write this now to avoid any disappointments later. We think that when it comes to food allergies and dietary restrictions, honesty is the best policy.
I do not drink alcohol. Is that a problem? Can I get a discount?
We provide non-alcoholic options wherever we go. We usually incorporate some wine tasting in the walk but can make different plans for groups of teetotalers. Sadly, we do not provide discounts for non-alcoholic options. With beer being cheaper than water in many restaurants, the cost of non-alcoholic options is actually higher than that of alcohol. We hope you understand.
