Prague Truffle Hunting tour
US$140.64
Overview

Foodies will love this unusual tour in Prague: truffle hunting with a specially trained dog, with sweeping views across Prague’s Old Town. Take an easy walk through the nature preserves above the city while looking for this rare food. Your guides—specifically the dog!—will know just where to find the truffles. Learn all about truffle hunting, and enjoy a meal with truffles afterwards.

What to Expect

You will experience a truffle hunting demonstration with one of us and our best friend/dog, Nela, followed by an excellent truffle menu in the restaurant with its glass atrium high above the rush of the city and overlooking Prague Castle and other medieval landmarks.

You will touch, smell and even taste real fresh truffles.
Do you want to know how to make a fortune truffle hunting?
Do you want to know how to train your own dog to search for truffles?
During our mushroom pursuit, we will tell you amazing stories from our travels around the Mediterranean (Italy, France, Istra, and Balkans). You will learn about truffle hunters' secret lore, their difficult daily routines, the enormous truffle prices, thrilling events that have occurred and even the dark side of the truffle business - fraud and the truffle mafia! We look forward to sharing this unique knowledge and these details with interested & curious experience seekers. 

What’s included

  • Truffle hunter and his dog as your guides
  • Excellent truffle lunch or dinner at a restaurant with one of the best view of the Prague Castle. 
  • A glass of Czech beer/glass of wine/soft drink
  • Truffle gift (fresh black truffles – take home a really unique present for your family and friends!)

Meeting point

Under the clocks at the Újezd tram stop, just next to the Memorial to the Victims of Communism
(address: Újezd 415/15, Malá Strana)

Your truffle Hunters (Petr, Anet, Jan & Ela)
