Who may like this tour?
Take the guess work out of it. Enjoy a nice walk, delicious classic Czech meal, selection of beer, pleasant location and interesting conversation. Like the Old Town and Jewish Quarter tour, Czech Food and Beer Tasting explores roughly the same area but it’s a shortened version. One large beer (0.5L) during the walk and when we sit down to eat your choice of Classic Czech Food like “Roast Pork with Sweet Cabbage and Dumplings”, “Beef Sirloin with Dumplings”, “Beef Goulash with Potato Pancakes” and light grill options. You’ll get SIX more local beers (0.15L) to enjoy during your meal and every one of them has a story. In warm weather we stay out in the pretty garden courtyard (pictured). In poorer weather we go inside. Consider it a light meal and varied conversation with a city local which takes in local tips and advice, Old Town and Jewish history/events, architecture, communism, world war two, Czech traditions and much more. People under 18 can join the tour but cannot be served any beer. I usually run this as a 3pm tour during the week but if you’ve got a date/time in mind and there’s nothing scheduled just contact me and I’ll see how I can fit in with your plans. Wine can be substituted for beer but there is an additional charge.

As one of my previous clients put it:
Jason graciously and gratuitously shared his vast knowledge of Prague/Czech Republic, answered all of my questions and gave excellent advice.Trip Advisor review
