The off the beaten track tour of Prague you don’t know about…

The off the beaten track tour of Prague you don’t know about…

Hungry for an authentic “insider” tour of Prague? Look no further because Eating Europe Tours recently launched Eating Prague Tours and its simply divine! With an urge to find out why this tour is consistently awarded 5 stars on Trip Advisor I joined them on a lengthy (but fantastic) four hour adventure into Prague’s history and delicious gastro delights as we discovered 6 of the best eateries in the city.

While I’d love to write an in-depth review of Eating Prague Food Tour (by far the best tour I have ever taken) I fear too many words would give too much away so here is a taster (get it?!?) of what I experienced. A tour such as this is better approached with as little knowledge as possible and an empty stomach!

Things I loved about this tour:

• Tons of Czech Culinary History
• Authentic local eateries – not a tourist place in site!
• Meeting the owner of Nase Maso with an explanation about why the meat is the best in Prague!
• Local native Czech guide who was friendly and answered all our questions no matter how strange!
• A variety of delicious dishes including savoury and sweet
• Small group size of 10 which allows for a more personal experience
• A good balance of walking and stops
• Plenty of local history stories and tales
• In-depth background into each dish you indulge in!

Even though I have a sweet tooth my favorite dish of the day was the Svíčková – a creamy sauce with Sirloin Beef and bread dumplings! Apparently its the queen of Czech sauce-based dishes and it was delicious! You can find the recipe here

As a local of Prague I knew many of the places that were visited during the tour (I love eating out!) so I was pleasantly surprised to be taken to an off the beaten track hidden cafe even I didn’t know about! This cute tea house cafe called S&I was discreetly hidden just off Wenceslas Square and they served the best mulled wine and Christmas cookies in a warm and cosy home environment. They even had a beautiful garden out the back too! Since I didn’t know about it – this was my favorite place on tour!

Believe me I could write a lengthy review post on all the different places you visit, the heaps of history and tales you hear along the way but I believe it would spoil the fun! If you’re lucky enough to be visiting the city of 100 spires anytime soon then Eating Prague Tour’s high class, great value and city and food tour should definitely be on your radar!

    Oooh looks so tasty. I love when food tours are able to tie in a bit of history. Definitely gives a bit of context to what you’re eating.

    Food tours are my absolute favorite way to see a new (and familiar) city. Every time I go to a new place I always research the food tours and see if I can fit it in. You get amazing food, history and a little bit of exercise….literally the perfect day in my opinion! If I ever find myself in Prague, I will check it out!

    • December 1, 2014 / 4:56 PM

      Exactly! You won’t be disappointed 🙂

  8. November 25, 2014 / 3:28 PM

    It’s been a while since I went to Prague so really don’t remember the food all that well. I’ll have to try out this tour once I’m back!

    • December 1, 2014 / 4:54 PM

      You can have good and bad food experiences in Prague but this tour takes you to all the best bits 🙂 and leaves you a great brochure with places to discover yourself!

    Food tour? How amazing! That sounds like the perfect way to get to experience the country, and with tasty food, even better 🙂

    • December 1, 2014 / 4:53 PM

      I think Food Tours are becoming even more popular! Not only do you eat tasty food but its a good way of getting your bearings in a new city…

  10. November 25, 2014 / 4:02 PM

    Food tours are so great, possibly the only type of tour I can stomach… Looks like you found a great one!

    • December 1, 2014 / 4:52 PM

    My favorite kind of article- involving food tours and traveling, plus one of my bucket list travel destinations! wow! the pictures are great and that soup dish, i couldn’t even attempt to pronounce, looks amazing. what a fun thing to do there!

    • December 1, 2014 / 4:52 PM

      It was great fun! If Prague is on your Bucket List than this tour here is a must 🙂

  13. November 27, 2014 / 9:46 PM

    Looks lovely and delicious! I haven’t made it to Prague yet! Or, sadly, much of Eastern Europe 🙁 I also love stumbling into off the path cafes 🙂

    • December 1, 2014 / 4:51 PM

      Alli there are so many cafes here in Prague to keep you busy!

  14. November 27, 2014 / 10:21 PM

    I love food tours, they teach so much about a place! Here, the Svickova (did I write it right?) looks tasty!! Would love to try it 😉

    • December 1, 2014 / 4:51 PM

      I’m going to be putting up the recipe for it so you can try making it at home! 🙂 Keep your eye out for it!

  15. November 28, 2014 / 12:14 PM

    The food looks great and surely it’s the best way to taste the local food if you are not a local (or don’t know a local)

    • December 1, 2014 / 4:50 PM

      Even as a local like me I enjoyed it and was shown things I didn’t know about! 🙂

  16. November 28, 2014 / 4:01 PM

    What a great foodie culture there seems to be in Prague! I have never been on a food tour and I think that it’s such a good idea. Everything you tried looks delicious. How did you hear about the tour – is it easy to find out about and sign up for it?

    • December 1, 2014 / 4:49 PM

      I discovered in on Tripadvisor top things to do in Prague and thought I would give it a try! 100% worth it I promise!

  17. November 29, 2014 / 10:33 AM

    The beef looks delish! Yumm!

    • December 1, 2014 / 4:48 PM

      It was just as delicious as it looks! 🙂

  18. November 29, 2014 / 11:23 PM

    Food tours are a great way to learn about a city, though I always have trouble because most tours are not vegetarian friendly, how do you think a vegetarian would enjoy this specific tour?

    • December 1, 2014 / 4:48 PM

      Hi Alejandra – This tour is very vegetarian friendly. We visited two places that had meat dishes and the rest were vegetarian. I am also sure if you notified them that they could make arrangements for a vegetarian option! 🙂

    • July 3, 2015 / 10:56 AM

      So glad that you enjoyed your tour. Your pictures are great! And it’s great that you got to experience an outdoor picnic style venue as well. I unfortunately didn’t get the chance to do that as I took the tour in winter! 🙂
