What to expect
Meet your historian guide at a centrally-located point in Prague, and listen to stories about Prague beer and brewing as you make your way to the brewery at Břevnov Monastery. See a Roman crypt that’s almost 1,000 years old, and take in the Church of St. Margaret, one of the finest examples of Czech baroque. Learn how the monastery’s beer traditions were revamped in 2012; you’ll have time to purchase samples of ‘beer tea’ at the brewery, or try the food in the onsite Klasterni Senk. Continue to Strahov Monastery, which the Royal Canonry of Premonstratensians founded in 1143. Hear about the 14th-century evidence of brewing in this site, and tour the brewery and restaurant. If you choose, you can purchase a ticket to the Strahov Monastery’s baroque library, where you'll discover over 200,000 volumes, including many rare texts. Tastings, food and guided tours of each monastery are not included with this tour.

Fantastic tour, guide and beer
Jun 2021
What an awesome concept! Vadim was an amazing guide with so much expertise of both the vast history of the monasteries and Prague in general. He was quick to realise our personal interests and it truly felt like the tour would be tailor-made for us specifically. Visiting the most beautiful locations and chatting about history, culture and interests over beer, was an extraordinary experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has a passion for art, history and great beer. Thank you Vadim!

A breathtaking and enlightening walk though the Strahov library and Břevnov monastery
Oct 2020
My girlfriend and I went on the Beer and Baroque tour early October, we both had an extremely wonderful time learning about Baroque and unique titbits of Czech history. We're both Czech expats and met in the Czech republic. She's an avid reader and I'm an amateur Photographer and I can say confidently we both had a fantastic experience visiting the Strahov library. I would have a hard time describing the beauty of the library, but I can say Vadim (our guide) was a wealth of knowledge throughout our tour of it. I learned a great deal about its unique history; the Fescos, the globes, unique works stored in the library.. Vadim was able to share his knowledge and answer all of our questions.

After the library we went to the Břevnov Monastery where we met a very friendly Monk (Joseph). He took us through the chapel and below, where we got the opportunity to see the remnants previous chapels the current one is built upon. Through this part of the tour we got the opportunity to learn about the history of the Joseph's order, some new and exciting news surrounding the current Pope and his direction of the Christian faith, and all about the chapel and Břevnov monastery.

That's without even mentioning the different types of beer we had at both Strahov and Břevnov Breweries; all of which were fantastic.

I'm really happy I got the opportunity to go on this tour, and have the chance to learn so much about the Strahov library, monks & monastery at Břevnov, and Czech history.

If you ever get the opportunity to get on one of the Insight City tours; even one of their online tours, I'd highly recommend it.. you won't be disappointed.

Thanks so much for the lovely, detailed review. Vadim enjoyed touring you both. I can't tell you how much feedback like this keeps us going in this crisis year for travel. Hope to see you on other Insight Cities tours as travel recovers, here in Prague and in Berlin, Vienna, Salzburg and Budapest! Happy new year!

Jealous looks from people not on the tour :)
Jul 2020
It was a rare privilege to stand among the historic books beneath the bright frescoes on the ceiling of the Strahov monastery; rare, because access is strictly controlled in order to protect these priceless treasures from the humidity that humans emit. Somehow, Vadim had arranged an exclusive visit for our small group in, and I could see the people craning to see in from behind the roped-off entrance wished they were in our shoes.
As awe-inspiring as the paintings were, I wouldn't have been nearly as moved by them without Vadim's guidance and interpretation. He is knowledgeable, entertaining, and also, a good listener, making sure you see what is most interesting to you.
At Brevnov, we were led behind the altar by Brother Joseph, himself a link back to more traditional times, another rare and illuminating experience.
And the beers. The beers are fantastic, but more rewarding was the chance to relax and share impressions with the other people on the tour. I think these tours attract interesting people.

We're so pleased that you enjoyed the tour! Thanks very much for the lovely, detailed review. At a time when the pandemic is still limiting our overseas guests, it is so encouraging to us to keep finding out that our tours also open doors for locals. And Vadim enjoyed your company very much! Hoping to get you on my tour of Prague's Renaissance and Baroque gardens in September or October before they close for the winter. Thanks again!

Monastical Treasures and Tasty Beers
Jul 2020
I have lived in Prague for almost three years and thought I had uncovered most of its amazing treasures. Absolutely wrong. Taking this tour with Vadim was an absolute gift! Vadim was able to take us to the Strahov Monastery library - understandably closed to the general public but a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be exposed to the beauty, knowledge and history housed within its lined walls and ornately painted ceilings. I am not a history buff, but Vadim provided the context and information that allowed me an understanding and appreciation of the events of the past centuries that surrounded us in the library. Brevnov Monastery was again a fantastic learning experience with a dive into its hidden history. All this knowledge acquisition was thirsty work, so tasting the beers originally made by the monks of both monasteries was a perfect addition to the tour. Excellent experience!!

Thanks for the warm review. Vadim enjoyed having you on the tour! We are especially gratified to keep finding out that many of our tours can open doors and offer good fun even for knowledgeable locals at a time when the pandemic is still limiting our visitors from around the world. Hoping to see you on my favorite tour (well, favorite with Art Nouveau) -- of Prague's Renaissance and Baroque gardens before they close October 31! Thanks again.

Wonderful and insightful tour
Oct 2019
Vadim took us on a private tour inside the Strahov and Brevnov monasteries, including the wonderful library. He did what few tour guides can do -- he not only offered information about the places we visited, but used it to illustrate the cultural history of Prague and the Czech lands. Definitely one of the most informative tours I've been on.

Thanks so much for lovely review. We appreciate the encouragement even more at a time when the pandemic has challenged our industry in a way we couldn't have imagined a few months ago. It's exciting to us that we started to give our behind-the-ropes tours of Strahov Library again to local groups just this week. Hope to see you on Insight Cities tours in the future in Berlin, Vienna, Salzburg, Budapest and -- after we launch our new program this year -- Munich.

Excellent private tour!!
Oct 2019 • Couples
Vadim gave my husband and I a true learning experience. He shared an incredible amount of knowledge with us, answering all of our questions and giving us background. He is a worldly, fun, good sense of humor. We had a private tour, starting with the governmental gardens. We then went to the first Strahov monastery. We were able to enter the gorgeous library where all the other people had to stay behind the small door. Vadim shared so many interesting details of the library, the books, the hidden doors, the furniture. Breathtaking! A MUST!
Next we went to Brevnov monastery and brewery.
We got to try some of the delicious beer from both breweries while learning more about Vadim, the culture, the city. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour with Vadim!
