Walking food tour of Prague highlights
Many guidebooks speak solely of Prague’s hearty, carnivorous, traditional fare, relaying only outdated information of our city’s bursting food scene.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.

- Ride public transit and experience three distinct districts of Prague.
- Learn about the food you’re eating, the drink in your hand, and the city around you.
- Catch surprising and beautiful city views that show how Prague is seen by locals.
- Eat more food than you probably should.
Inclusions: Food-loving and English-speaking local guide, eight food and five beverage tastings of traditional Czech cuisine at different places where locals like to eat and drink (portion sizes vary but total amount of food equals a large full meal), ticket for public transportation, and a map with personalised recommendations
Exclusions: Additional food and drinks, souvenirs and personal shopping, transportation to/from the meeting and end points, and tips/gratuities for your guide

Join us as we make a whirlwind tour of Prague’s food, drink, and cultural scene. This is more than just a food tour, this is a chance to get to know the people, the lifestyle, the history, and ups and downs of the city. It’s a cultural excursion set around good food, drink, and conviviality — just as a food tour should be! (Please note that as all food is ordered in advance, we must know of any dietary restrictions at the time of booking. You can notify us in the ‘Additional Information’ box at checkout or by emailing us at [email protected].)
We start things outright in a modern bistro with a knack for things homemade. A short walk through an up-and-coming neighbourhood in Prague shows us that even the parts outside the centre are well worth exploring and learning about, and leaves you wanting more food. Not to worry, though, because before long we’re sitting in a modern classic Czech pub, enjoying a homemade soda or a lager paired with some traditional pub fare from locally sourced ingredients. This boozer is a great place to learn a bit about the history of the region and how seriously we take our beer.
Although we love our pubs dearly, 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 they don’t disappoint. 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. Sound intriguing? You should taste it.
Continuing along the old dusty path (possibly literally), we 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 feet enjoy a short break as we take public transit towards another stunning neighbourhood. There, we have house-roasted coffee and cake at a cosy café before making our way to a beer garden in a park and catching a stunning view of our city that is to die for.
Dress Standard: Please wear comfortable walking shoes. In summer months, bring a hat and sunscreen. This tour departs rain or shine, so you may want to bring an umbrella, depending on the weather.

What an amazing tour to get off the beaten tourist path and see a side of Prague not everyone gets to experience during their visit. I was SO blown away by the delicious food, and Sasa our guide was simply the best!
Ms. Robyn L. from Australia travelled on 12 May 2018:
Great day out in Prague, exploring quirky cafes, restaurants and the best beer garden with a view back over the city.
Mr. Bruce R. from USA travelled on 12 Apr 2018:
Wonderful afternoon at a variety of restaurants, mainly in the up-and-coming food district of Karlin in Prague, with the final two stops north of the river in the Letná district. Our guide, Saša, was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable and personable, providing us with excellent background not only on the food and restaurants, but the city’s history and geography. It seemed more like an afternoon with a friend than a guided tour. At our first stop, Nejen Bistro, we had a very creamy cauliflower soup with grana Padano, dried egg yolk and chives. We then stoped at Lokál Hamburk where we had Smažený sýr (friend cheese) with potatoes and tartar sauce, Talián sausage with fresh horseradish and mustard, a Riesling from Moravia (southern Czech Republic) and Pilsner Urquell beer. As Eska, a Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant, we tasted potatoes in ash with smoked fish, dried egg yolk and kefir, young goat with parsnip, kale and elderflower, and homemade fermented lemonades. The dessert course was at Café Alchymista where we had Berlin cheesecake with cinnamon and chocolate cake with sour cherries as well as cappucino. And the finale was two Kozel beers in the Letná Beer Garden, overlooking the river and city, followed by a walk to the nearby Metronome. At most of the restaurants, the food seemed to be somewhere between sample size and a full portion, so we were quite full at the end of the tour. And the food was all excellent and different. It was not strictly traditional Czech cuisine, but different, more adventerous versions of it in some cases. It was an excellent tour, largely thanks to Saša, and the highlight of our trip.
Mr. Clara C. from Azerbaijan travelled on 24 Oct 2017:
The Prague Food by Foot Tour was a great surprise! Míša and Tereza, our guides, were so prepared about Prague and about Karlín neighborhood, the area where the most of the tour took place. We ate in 4 different places, all of them very beautiful (one of them even has a Michelin star!), and we tasted so many delicious typical dishes. We highly recommend to do this tour if you want to live a very local experience in Prague, far from touristic crowds, and if you want to experience the city also through the food, that is absolutely delicious!
Mr. Lavina D. from American Samoa travelled on 19 Oct 2017:
We ate at about 5-6 places till our tummy exploded! We were taken to some of the best, classiest and local joints in Prague where we were served dishes I would not have thought of trying out by myself.
Michaela our guide was really friendly and all the while shared interesting trivia about the locations we passed on the way. I can still recall the taste of organic potatoes in ash and award winning cheesecake!
If you’re a foodie and want to have the best of Prague, be it a day, weekend or an extended trip then this is a must-do!
