Owner description: The idea behind the Taste of Prague food tours is simple. You follow a local foodie. You eat the best dishes in Prague’s best restaurants frequented by the locals and talk about what you eat and why, and how the food, wine and beer reflects the society, the country and its history and present. We keep our tours fresh, small and personal. Come hungry. Stretch pants optional, but recommended.

This food tour was the highlight of our trip to Prague. We had high expectations from the reviews, and Zuzi and Jan exceeded them. They are both great hosts and storytellers. In addition to the wonderful food, we heard a first-person account of what it was like to live under communism and through the revolution, which provided a rich backdrop for the rest of our time there. We still talk about the communist-era advertisements and the changes in the food culture of Prague over the last 25 years.

I agree with other reviewers that it would be best to book this at the beginning of your trip so you can take advantage of the restaurant and other recommendations. Not to be missed!

Jan and Zuzi were so fun to spend the day with and were full of interesting information. We had awesome food, drinks, and an overall experience. Try to do this right when you get to Prague so that you can learn about the best places to go.

We had an amazing time in Prague thanks to Zuzi and Jan. We joined their tour and also stayed in their apartment. We felt pampered throughout our stay: the apartment has its own email address and Skype account and Jan and Zuzi checked on us regularly to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. On arrival, they asked us what we liked and helped us create an itinerary on the spot. Although we had researched Prague before, we changed some of our plans based on Zuzi's recommendations and we were happy we did. They provide very honest and valuable insight. The apartment itself was beautiful, very well located and connected to the local community: Zuzi and Jan do not lie when they say this is more an experience than accommodation.
Having met Zuzi and Jan already, we had high expectations for the tour but we must say they easily exceeded them. The concept is great - a small group of people talking about Czech and Central European culture and modern history and tasting some delicious foods. The iPad presentations were very well prepared, educational and funny. We did expect a food tour but did not really know we would get so much information about the culture, the past and the present and the spirit of Prague and Czechoslovakia. We absolutely loved it.
We are really happy we met Zuzi and Jan and let them guide us through their beautiful city. We only wish this service was available in every city we visit.

The Taste of Prague food tour was one of the best tours I have ever been on. Our hosts Zuzi and Jan were fantastic, friendly and so knowledgeable. The food we ate on the day was superb and so unique and the background information gave everyone an insight into the way in which Prague has changed over the last 100 years.
As with other reviews, I would highly reccommend booking this tour at the beginning of your holiday as all the restaurants we visited after recommendations from Zuzi and Jan were excellent. Our only regret is that we did not try the hot chocolate - only because of the very hot weather we experienced!!! The patisseries in particular were out of this world!

Not a city tour, more like how to connect to an nation in an afternoon.
The guides Jan and Zuzi use their vast knowledge and love for the country to make anybody thirsty for more of this beautiful city.
During about 4 hours, we tasted our way around Prague, all the while not really feeling like tourists. and thoroughly enjoying every moment of it
Thank you!!
