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.

We received lots of information from Jan even before we left home so felt we were in good hands and that proved to be absolutely true. Jan gave us such an insight into the culture and recent background of the city as well as fantastic recommendations which led to us experiencing some of the most wonderful meals - the best Asian fusion (we are from Australia but live in Provence and have been deprived of really high quality Asian food) at Sansho and the best Italian meal in many years at La Finestra. The tour was very entertaining and the food great and very varied and his personal attention to everyones' particular interests was outstanding. He even said if I had mentioned I sing in a choir he could have arranged for me to rehearse with a choir while there! Highly recommended to really get the most out of your trip and see a bit of Prague away from the tourist crowds.

We arranged this tour at the beginning of our trip and Karolina was exceptional. She was energetic, passionate, and fun. She even worked around our tight schedule. She was excellent at replying to our inquiries and keeping us informed even before we got to Europe. We started the night at a traditional Czech "slow cooked" steak house, then worked our way to a "fast food" deli, a patisserie, and ended our evening at a wine shop. In addition to learning about the food culture of Prague, we also got a bit of history and art lessons! Sure, you can go to these places on your own for a lot less but we got so much more out of it than full bellies. We even got restaurant recommendations which we used throughout our trip. It's a little pricey, but I will highly recommend it.

We recently spent 5 days in Prague with good friends and absolutely loved our introduction to the local foods and culture with Jan. He was such a wonderful Host and the time spent with him made us feel like we were his personal out of town guests. Jan's selection of Restaurants and special touches (like the maps, listing of places to eat, drink, shop, etc. as well as a kick-off schnapps to begin our adventure) set his mark high above the rest. As others have said - do this first! We revisited one of the places that he showed us as well (desserts are fantastic at the Cafe Savoy. It was my husband's birthday and their apple strudel is the best!!) Jan clearly loves his country and gave us all a better understanding and appreciation of the fabulous people in the Czech Republic.

My sister arranged this tour for her husband and herself. Unfortunately for him, he couldn't go but I was able to take his place. Lucky me because this is THE way to really enjoy...no, more than that...to really have the opportunity to take in, from a local's perspective, the area. Jan provided his exceptional knowledge of the area. For anyone coming to Prague, do this tour first. Because as everyone knows, part of the experience of traveling is the food and the drink. The guide books won't give you this experience...and it is an experience you don't want to miss. If you're coming to Prague, do this trip as a gift to yourself.

My wife and I just returned from a 3 day visit to Prague - our first visit. We had booked our Taste of Prague tour for the day we arrived in Prague. It was the perfect way to start off our visit. First of all, they were wonderfully accomodating and responsive when we made our reservation online. The tour itself was a totally enjoyable experience in many ways - one you can't get from a traditonal tour. This includes all the delicous local food and drink at several of our stops and equally important, the insight Jan gave us into the city, the Czech culture and people. If you are planing a to Prague, I would definately include this on your list of things to do.
