The underground site I think is good, the tour, well... it could've been more interesting if it wasn't for our tour guide (can't remember her name) who made it painfully boring, she didn't have any idea of how to communicate to the group, using a torch (flashlight) to point at objects that no everyone could see, the people behind were...

Unfortunately we didn't get to go into the tunnels as it must be on a tour. There is no information we came across that tells you this. So we were disappointed.

If visiting Plzen, a stop in the historical underground is worth the stop. The tour was interesting, especially for those who have not explored underground tunnel systems before. It was however typical - lots of people and a less than entertaining audio. If you can look past the less than enthusiastic commentator, the information was pretty interesting, dating back to...

What I was expecting to be great, came out as a no-go. The tour as intersting it might be was destroyed by our guide, Denisa. Her english was terrible, she didn't have any contact with us, and was focusing only in small part of our group: she was showing some things on the exposition with a flashlight, but only to... More

This tour starts in the cellars of the Plzen Brewery Museum. Plzen is the home of the famous Pilsner Urquel beer. Deep under Pilsen's street you visit the cellars which originally connected many of the medieval houses. Learn about Plzen's history and also about beer. At the end, enjoy a free schooner of draught beer in the courtyard. Then you... More

This is a must. The story behind underground Pilsen, both for beer and general history is well worth a visit. The guide was informative and provided some really interesting insights into this vast underground network (as it must have been). There are lots of artifacts and models depicting life in earlier times. The tour is very reasonably priced and goes... More

Referring to previous reviews, our guide was young and initially nervous but warmed up. Her use of English was ok, not perfect but not a hindrance. Some people are very critical. A few smiles and thanks probably helped her. The tour is interesting as an insight into previous generations (and centuries) of life in Pilsen. The artefacts on display are... More

It was a very interesting tour and if you find yourself in Pilsen, you shouldn't miss this. It gives you a good sense of what Pilsen what like in medieval days and it's quite well preserved with some interesting artifacts.

This is one of the tours I always recommend to tourists, and they love it. The last group said it was the best part of their day trip to Pilsen. There are tours in English, so check their website. Some of the tour times used to be marked with a * on the Historical Underground website because they included special... More

The guide speaks good English was funny. If you want to learn more about the history of this small city then this is one place you should visit. Just remember to watch your head.
