Today was our first full day in Prague and we booked the Eating Prague Tour with a bit of reluctance after finding that our first choice was fully booked. We were very glad we did. We enjoyed ourselves, loved the food and appreciated all the historical information we got from our guide Mirka.

We started at Choco Cafe where we tried thin pastry rolls filled with fresh cream which we dipped in some very flavorful dark chocolate blend. This cafe is famous for its chocolate variety (50 flavors) from many different countries.
Our second stop was at Sisters. There, fresh and beautifully presented open face sandwiches awaited us. we had four different types: beet puree, goat cheese, slightly sweetened walnut and basil; egg sandwich with watercress and chives; wasabi based pate, pickled herring, red onions, radish and dill; raw celeriac, homemade mayo with tarragon and parsley finished with a cherry tomato; all on fresh sourdough bread.
Across the Sisters, the amazing Nase Maso. The small establishment is all in glass so one can see the meat hanging in the fridge, the workers preparing the cuts and the delicious meals. Outside, on the covered side, there are a couple of small tall tables to accommodate the customers that stop by for a quick bite. We tried the famous meatloaf which is prepared with pork and beef, two types of sausages and roasted pork. All very delicious.
We then proceeded to Zvonice located at the top of a church tower. We had the most amazing cabbage soup. It is made with mushrooms, sauerkraut, smoked venison sausage, sour cream, and spices.
When we thought we couldn't (our at least shouldn't) eat anymore, we stopped at the most charming cafe Styl and Interier. Warm spicy pear juice paired with hazelnut butter cookies gave us a glimpse of some of the most memorable Christmas flavors typical of Prague.
Finally, we headed to Louvre restaurant for our final two course meal. Louvre is bright and upbeat and has been around for a long time. It was closed for a number of year during Soviet times but claims that it has hosted notorious patrons such as Kafka and Einstein. We had a traditional dish of pork in a vegetable broth/cream with sour cream, cranberry jam and bread dumplings. Strudel with fresh cream and a vanilla sauce wrapped up our gastronomic adventure.
We highly recommend this tour. I did not mention, but someone in our group is a vegetarian and he also was impressed by the quality and taste of all the dishes he tried. We finished happy and very satisfied. This is a great way to get a sample of Prague's traditional cuisine with a modern twist and prepared with the highest quality ingredients by professionals who care. Thank you Mirka!

Our Eating Prague Food tour was the perfect blend of sampling Czech food, learning more about Czech history, and seeing interesting sites in Prague. Our tour guide Jan was fabulous; his love for food and the Czech Republic really came through. The selection of foods we sampled were delicious, representative of a range of Czech cuisines, and a cross section of old and new Czech cooking styles. We highly recommend this tour for foodies as well as for folks interested in learning more about Czech culture and history.

This is a very good tour showcasing the very best of independent Czech cuisine. Jan our guide was very knowledgable and ready to recommend places to eat. In hindsight we should have done this at the start of our trip not towards the end. One piece of advice is to go for the tour very hungry and cancel your dinner plans. Definitely worth doing.

We took the tour and in the end we were not pleased with the value and organization. The food was alright, but not worth it at a cost of around $90 per person. We would have liked to enjoy a higher quality of food if we were going to pay so much compared to the prices we saw on the menus of the restaurants we dined at while in Prague.

There was far too much walking needed, which absolutely exhausted us and took away from the overall enjoyment of the sights. My poor husband needed to rest his feet for the rest of the day once we returned to our accommodation.

We should say that there were some nice highlights including the stop for chocolate and wafers and the lovely courtyard cafe we started at. But we would certainly choose to skip this tour if we had the chance to do it over again and spend our money elsewhere.

Thank you for joining us on your visit to Prague. We really enjoyed having you both on tour. I am really sorry to hear about your husband’s feet - we truly had no idea that he was finding the walking to be so difficult or we would have definitely adjusted our itinerary to make it easier for him. I am glad that you both enjoyed so many of the tours highlights, but of course I wish the overall experience was more to your liking. While it is not nice to receive a 2-star review, the tour is definitely so much better thanks to your constructive feedback. You will be happy to know that we have reorganized the route so that there is about 30% less walking and we have added several new and rather special tastings into the tour in the hopes of ensuring that all of our clients come away with a belly satisfied with delicious Czech delicacies and un-sore feet. I wish you and your husband all the best, and hope that you enjoyed all the rest of the fun activities you had planned.

We attended the Prague food tour led by Jan, who was warm, personable, and extremely knowledgeable in all things food (Czech and otherwise). We started at the Choco Cafe with a unique desert of crepes filled with an airy and delicate whipped cream - heavenly. It only got better from there. From the artfully presented open faced sandwiches to the outstanding offerings of the best butcher shop in Prague, every stop was not only an opportunity to taste something wonderful but to learn about the culture and history of the Czech people. For me, the piece de resistance was the soup served in the bell tower. It was simply amazing. We spent just the right amount of time at each destination (I never felt rushed) and I appreciated the opportunity to walk between tastings so that there was a bit of a break as well as an opportunity to learn about the city itself. The portions were generous and I think it was an excellent value. I would not hesitate to recommend the Eating Prague Tour. I hope the tours are expanded to other European cities and I look forward to attending the other eating tours.

Eva guided our group of 9 on a food adventure around Prague. There were 3 food stops in Old Town and 3 in New Town with places to sit down at most of the stops. Our meeting point, and initial taste of our tour was Perníčkův sen (meaning Gingerbread Man's Dream). We had arrived early to the shop and took advantage of the time by purchasing a bunch of beautifully decorated gingerbread to go. We are glad we did because apparently this shop does not seem to keep normal hours, and friends of ours arrived not once but twice during business hours to find the shop closed early. Even though our first food stop was a gingerbread shop, we didn't actually sample the gingerbread during the tour. We were given an adorable beer mug-shaped gingerbread to take home for later, and sampled a few other pastries instead. The first is Sakrajda (which translates to "dammit cake"), a thin dough rolled with walnuts and plum jam. It's slightly chewy with thick sticky jam and crunchy nuts. This medieval recipe was very delicious! I'm on the lookout for a good recipe! Next we sampled their version of koláče (kolache) made with gingerbread dough (traditionally this is a yeast dough), garnished with poppy seeds and an almond. The gingerbread base was tender, and not too sweet. Last but not least was the vanilkový rohlíček (same as the German & Austrian Vanillekipferl), described to us as "vanilla rolls." These crescents with Austro-Hungarian roots are made with loads of butter and ground almonds, and are crumbly and sweet. They are soooooooo good. You can really taste the richness of the butter. It's epic, and already on my list to make as Christmas cookies this year!

Next we headed through a hidden passage (there are many like it in the city) called Gurmet Pasáž. This particular passage between streets is full of gastronomical delights. We paused midway through the passage and stood around a table while Eva told us a bit about the next 2 stops which are located across from each other at the far end of the passage. She brought out trays one after another for us to sample. The first selection is from Sisters. I was very excited to try Sisters' modern take on Czech open-faced sandwiches or "garnished breads" called obložené chlebíčky or simply chlebíčky. The menu changes periodically so those on the tour or visiting the restaurant on their own will likely have other offerings in the future. We sampled 3 different varieties currently on their menu. All were served on thin, dense breads (similar to cocktail bread in thickness and density) with various toppings.

Next up was a laden platter of deliciousness from Naše maso (which translates to "our meat"). First of all, it was truly glorious peeking through the windows of this shop at all the awesome meat. Everything they sell is made in house (the hams, sausages, and even mustard, etc) and ingredients are sourced locally in the Czech Republic. It's easy to see why this is the most popular butcher shop in Prague. Our smörgåsbord included Pražská šunka (Prague ham), tourist salami (called this because travelers would carry it in their backpacks for sandwiches), přeštická klobása (Přeštice sausage), Prague-ham-style beef, Johnny's pickles (or Jansa's pickles), homemade mustard, and rye bread. I loved literally every bite! This was truly an epic charcuterie board to really experience the meat of Prague.

So far, everything we tasted was wonderful, and we were only halfway through the food stops. We digested as we walked from Old Town to New Town for the next portion of our walking and eating tour.

Our next stop was Špejle, which literally translates to skewer. For our tasting pleasure we were served Špejle's bite-sized version of a Czech classic, duck with red cabbage and potato dumplings (a dish I had for dinner 2 nights ago before attending the opera!). Sous vide duck breast is served with a potato dumpling stuffed with red sauerkraut, coated in gingerbread crumbs, and topped with fried onion. This creative rendition is a great combination of textures and flavors, and was definitely a hit! We also had a choice of drinks here, including beer or one of Špejle's unique lemonades.

Next on the menu would be our main course served at Café Louvre. Here we tasted Svíčková, a traditional Czech dish featuring braised beef sirloin cloaked in a flavorful vegetable cream sauce, topped with a dollop of cranberry compote, and served with boiled bread dumplings. The dish is surprisingly not very heavy considering it's red meat with a creamy sauce, and real whipped cream ("not from a can!" as Eva would say). Visually this is a very unflattering dish but it is actually delicious!

Last but certainly not least we are heading across the street for dessert at Crème de la Crème - Zmrzlinový salon. We sampled a seasonal sorbet flavor, plum and cinnamon, as well as hazelnut gelato. Both were AMAZING. The hazelnut tasted like eating straight hazelnuts. It had such intense hazelnut flavor, and was so creamy and decadent! Wow. The sorbet was absolutely delicious! It wasn’t too cinnamony but had a great balance and was sweet but not cloying, and surprisingly creamy for a sorbet. It was unbelievably good!

The Prague food tour is a tour of the city and its history and culture and certainly not just food tastings. We saw the location of massive student protests to communism, which were captured on video and shared with the world, sparking the start of the Velvet Revolution and the end of communism. We also saw the balcony from which the Czech Republic’s first president waved to the crowds of Wenceslas Square when he first took over leadership of the government. We visited the Upside-Down Statue of King Wenceslas Riding a Dead Horse and the lovely Franciscan Garden hidden between buildings and accessible by pasáže or “passages.” We learned about engraved metal sidewalk stones placed in front of homes of Jews who were killed during WWII. All kinds of bonuses we may not know if not for this tour. Overall I think the tour was very well-paced, and the amount of food was just right. I was full but not overstuffed, and felt sated both gastronomically and culturally. Two major thumbs up for the Prague Food Tour by Eating Europe. I would definitely consider another food tour by this organization in another European city in the future!

It was a wonderful way to taste Prague; we began in a little gingerbread shop, hearing stories from the wonderful guide, Jan, about growing up with the cookies we were munching on. Then it was off to try open-faced sandwiches and delectable cuts of meat, then soup and mulled wine and a tasty late lunch to finish the tour. Not only were the stops carefully chosen and the food amazing, but the guide really pulled the tour together with his extensive knowledge of the city and his experiences growing up there amidst the social change from the Communist era. Highly recommended!

My sister and I recently went on the Eating Prague tour and were really impressed, it would be the highlight of our trip to Prague. Our tour guide was really knowledgable about both traditional Czech food and the history of Prague. The food was great ( I am inspired to try cooking Czech food) and the locations we visited were fabulous, I loved the restaurant at the top of the bell tower. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

This tour was absolutely amazing. Not only do you get to taste great food, you also get a history lesson along the way. Jan, our guide was very knowledgeable about both food and Czech history. We had several "digestive stops" along the way for historical facts. Some of the best food I ate while in Prague was on this tour. I'm a fairly picky eater but I was fully satisfied.

We definitely recommend this delicious tour! Jan, our guide, was terrific. He is extremely knowledgeable and fun; he shared his passion for food and all things Czech. Starting your trip to Prague with this tour would be very helpful as you learn about the hidden hot spots for food, drinks, sites, and even souvenirs.
