Why is a food tour in Prague totally worth it?
Czech cuisine a top culinary experience
It is almost a sin to be on vacation in Prague and leave without having a food tour around the city. If you want the whole Czech traditional experience, a good place to start is getting a taste of Prague’s delicacies. Czech cuisine is unlike anything you have tried, but unfortunately, it has not gained international recognition compared to other European countries, and this article hopes to change that.
● Every Czech cuisine is rich in history, and having a meal is sharing and experiencing the culture of the Czechs.
● Every dish is finger-licking good and filling.
● Are you vegan, or are you on a strictly gluten-free diet ? There is something on the Czech menu for everyone.
Why you should go on a Prague food tour
Instead of wasting whatever vacation time you have left searching for great places to eat, how about creating a food adventure for you and your family by joining food tour groups around the city.
We have all been there. You make an itinerary of everything you will do when on vacation, but you can’t find the time to do everything for some reason. Food tour groups offer an all-in-one experience. So while you taste delicious foods and experience culture, you get to see a lot of tourist attractions. Also, food tours will take you around the city and to places that will never have been on your radar.
● Experience a traditional Czech cuisine differently
Trying new foods can be nerve-racking because you may not like them, and there is nothing worse than spending money on food you do not like. We offer a better alternative food tour groups organize food tastings of local dishes at a discount. So instead of spending a lot on a plate of food, you get to try different dishes at a sitting for half the price. Food tour groups put their best foot forward, so be rest assured you are only eating from the best restaurants and cafes. Now, you will know where to get the best goulash and recommend the best street vendors to your friends.
● Get a break from the classical sightseeing
I imagine after visiting tourist sites and basking in the country’s ancient history and culture; you are yearning for more. How about experiencing more culture through the ultimate food tour ?
