Overview

Meet your guide at 6pm in Prague's city center and start your tour by learning about the history behind Pilsner Urquel, the golden lager which stopped riots in the Czech town of Plzen and started a revolution in the world of beer. Enjoy a glass of unpasteurized Pilsner, making its way to your belly straight from the brewery. Take your first steps toward becoming a true master of beer by learning how to pour the perfect pint in the first pub. Also discover why some people refer to beer drinking as a national sport through the pub’s unique way of displaying drinking statistics around Europe.

Then, walk to the second pub, a true hidden gem of Czech culture, unchanged in the past couple of decades. Enjoy one of the best dark lagers in the world and indulge in some traditional Czech humor through the art adorning its walls.

Head for the final destination, a traditional Czech restaurant, to taste the most popular domestic brew in all of Czech Republic and hear the fantastic mythology behind its origins. Worked up an appetite? Taste delicious Czech food, including what is arguably the best goulash in all of Prague.

Finish the tour confident in your pronunciation of Na zdraví.

    Knew basically nothing about Prague or its history before the tour, fell in love with it by the end of the tour. Vaclav was a really great tour guide, the optimal guy to show you around the city!
