Whirlwind Tour of Prague’s Food, Drink and Cultural Scene

Many guidebooks speak solely of Prague’s hearty, carnivorous, traditional fare, relaying only outdated information of our city’s bursting food scene. We’re here to show you otherwise. Step outside the city centre and get to know Prague the best way we can think of: through your belly. We’ll taste everything from traditional to inventive, including a Michelin Bib Gourmand honouree.

Highlights:

  • Local experience: Savour exceptional modern Czech food and drinks from local cafés, pubs, and restaurants
  • Off the beaten path: Escape the touristy city centre and discover a very distinct side of Prague
  • Cultural lesson: Learn about the food you’re eating, the drink in your hand, and the city around you
  • Picture-worthy: Catch surprising and beautiful city views that show how Prague is seen by locals
  • Foodie heaven: Eat more food than you probably should
  • Small group: Experience a day out in the company of a devoted local foodie and a small group of like-minded food enthusiasts
  • Pro tips: Finish the tour with a map of personalized food recommendations in your pocket to continue exploring on your own

Eat Like a Local

We’ll start things out right in a brand new restaurant with a modern take on Czech cuisine. A short walk through an up-and-coming neighbourhood in Prague will show us that even the parts outside the centre are well worth exploring and learning about. I’m sure you’ll be ready for some more food after the stroll!

No worries, before long we’ll be sitting in a modern bistro, enjoying a locally brewed craft beer paired with some delish pulled pork. We might even peek into the brewery next-door. This is a great place to learn a bit about the history of the region and how seriously we take our beer.

Treat Yourself, and Your Taste Buds!

Continuing along the old dusty path (possibly literally), we’ll have ourselves a quick digestif from a family-owned, all-natural distillery whose plums come from the environmentally protected region of the White Carpathians — a real taste of our Moravia region.

Our next place is a mere stone’s throw away and we don’t want to keep it waiting. This restaurant/bakery was awarded the Bib Gourmand in the 2017 Michelin Guide, and for a good reason! With a focus on homemade and homegrown, this place is a paradise for your tastebuds. They play with fermentation, wood-fire baking and roasting, as well as natural foods and herbs. Sounds intriguing? Wait until you taste it!

Don’t Forget the Dessert…

We’ll make a quick stop at one of the best bakeries in the nighbourhood to pick up some koláče. You might’ve heard of this popular Czech pastry, but believe me, you’ve never tasted ones like these before! Just give it a minute until we find a proper spot to eat them…

Found it! These former military barracks have been transformed into a cultural space and possibly the coolest place in town. Let’s enjoy our long-awaited desert in the spacious courtyard, along with some delicious coffee from a hip local café. That’s also where we part our ways, giving you many recommendations for the rest of your stay in our charming city.

What Else You Should Know

If you love food, culture, and exploring interesting places along with new friends, this Prague food tour is for you!

  • Our tours run rain or shine

In case of rain, please dress accordingly and bring an umbrella or a raincoat with you. In winter, temperatures can get quite low, be aware of that and put an extra sweater into your backpack. But remember – it’s your vacation, so if you are cold during the tour, just say so to your guide. There’s always a cafe nearby where you can warm up and then go on with the tour.

  • Put on your walking shoes 

Walking involved in the tours vary as each tour guide takes a slightly different route (which means you can take our tours multiple times and always discover something new). But we still run food and cultural tours, we don’t run marathons. If you lose weight on our tour, we’ll offer a refund :-). However, please do let us know in advance if you have mobility issues. We can always adjust the itinerary so that there’s less walking included.

  • So I have these food restrictions?

Czech cuisine relies heavily on meat, milk and butter. As much as we’d love to host anyone on our tours, please know that we cannot properly feed you if you are vegan or lactose-intolerant. Please contact us if you would like recommendations for good places for you to try outside of this tour – we are happy to help.

Vegetarians are welcome – just be aware that your tastings are going to be slightly different from the rest of the group and that we go to places that are very red meat-centric.

  • Everything’s covered, right?

In the restaurants, your guide will be making all the payments, including a tip on your behalf to the staff.

We reserve the right to change the course of the tour and places visited in case one of the venues is closed. In the event of a change of menu, we will pick the best alternative, ensuring no loss in quality or quantity of inclusions.

  • Want to make this tour private?

We’ll pick you up at your hotel (or elsewhere in the city center).

Choose your own starting time.

Have the guide just for yourself.

A wonderful walk on the Prague locals side to try different restaurants, food dishes & beers David W.

Tried several local food dishes at five different local restaurants (Beef broth with dumpling, pulled pork with roasted vegetables, chicken demi sauce, leaf salad, fermented potato pancakes, baked vegetable, potatoes in ash and colacek) and several beers (pilsner urquell, Mistni craft beer, Dalesicka 11 beer, fermented pear limonade and coffee). It was a special way to spend an afternoon.

Five stars are not enough! Sandra

We enjoyed a Food by Foot tour with Nikola in Prague and cannot speak more highly of this delightful experience. We were greeted by Nikola and enjoyed a thoughtfully curated tour of some of Prague's best keep secrets. The tour involved a nice selection of eateries each offering an amazing selection of foods and beverages. Nikola did a fantastic job of giving us background, history and relevance of each location. Five stars are not enough to give Nikola and this experience it's due. We highly recommend you sign up for this tour and promise you won't regret it, but you might regret it if you miss out. Thank you for a great experience!

Awesome tour Timothy

This tour will take you outside the city center and to some of the local eateries and pubs. I encourage you to enjoy the city but step outside the norm and enjoy the non tourist side of the city!!!!

You better come hungry to this tour! Sheridan

Johanka is a FANTASTIC guide. She knew so many unique facts and stories that I would have never known and had us try so many unique dishes that we probably wouldn't have tried if we tried to explore on our own. She was very personable and really made the whole experience very special. I learned so much about the history and culture of Prague and ate so much food I was insanely full, I couldn't have asked for a better guide!
