We enjoyed a very full day in Plzen, staying two nights in the hotel across from the brewery. After walking around the main square and side streets, we toured the underground on an English language tour. It was a warm July day so the cool underground was refreshing. We thought it would be more rough, grimy and unfinished but it... More

The underground city is very interesting when you think about the effort and planning that went into a city underground. We didn't want to wait for the English tour so used the audio guide with the German tour. Our guide was able to answer questions and keep us ahead of the audio so we kept up. We found the tunnels...

We visited the Plzen Brewery Museum, Historic Underground and Pilsner Urquell brewery on the same day. I was really impressed with all 3 attractions. The historical underground tour was really interesting - I learnt a lot about Plzen's history. Our tour guide spoke very good English but was noticeably VERY nervous (maybe she was quite new to the job?) which... More

When we were there they had no tour in english, so we had an audioguide, so we weren't able to ask questions, and the audioguide talked more than the guide so we were always at the back and sort of alone, dispite that, the tour was very intresting, and I'm glad we did it. My boyfriend is very tall and... More

Our guide was the most delightful, knowledgeable person, totally willing to answer all of our stupid questions about Czech history. The underground tour is very extensive and exhaustive. Does get a little claustrophobic when you think about the city above you, but the historical artifacts and tidbits were totally distracting. Loved it.

Our guide spoke beautiful English and was able to answer questions. I was afraid at first because I can become claustrophobic, but the tunnels are well-lit and filled with artifacts. I really enjoyed the entire experience.

Historical underground is worth to see, because there is actually "another city" below Plzen and you can easily imagine how people lived in the past. We took "English guided tour" but unfortunately our guide did not speak English, so we were getting audio guides.

Worth seeing for medieval cellars and done history. Guide admittedly had pretty mediocre knowledge and could not answer questions often

There is one tour a day on English but apparently you can take another tour with an audio guide. Fascinating place and a complete maze. It costs extra if you want to take photos underground.
