CZECH BEER CULTURE TOUR
HIGHLIGHTS: Pubs & Political influence, Local Drinking Customs, Learn to Pour the Perfect BeerDESCRIPTION:Beer is an essential part of Czech culture. It’s not just a leisure activity – pivo is a part of political discussions, sporting events and many major events in Czech history. Czechs drink more beer per capita than any other country in the world, and they do it with their own unique style. Pub conversations are where history happens. International diplomats, including Madeleine Albright and President Bill Clinton, have sampled the local specialty while touring Prague. The Velvet Revolution was discussed and celebrated over foam-topped glasses. Any government plans to increase the price would likely to lead to another revolt. Join our educated guides for an authentic pub culture experience and get to know both the pivo and the people of Prague on a deeper level.
COMMUNISM TOUR & NUCLEAR BUNKER

After the Second World War, the communists easily took power in the country and established a tough rule of law that, in the 1950s, took the lives of thousands of people. The 1960s were freer, but the end of the decade saw the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia, which brought tanks and foreign soldiers streaming through the streets of Prague. You will also hear about the self-immolation of Jan Palach and Jan Zajíc, the following period of Normalization, the fear that permeated the era, and the heroism throughout. During the tour, you’ll also get to visit the nuclear bunker once used by the officers of the Warsaw Pact.

They say about me “Great tour, very knowledge tour guide. Great entertainment. Well worth the time. We really enjoyed the time, no question was too much.” from Tripadvisor
Born and raised Czech who didn’t really appreciate this country and city until she returned from a 10 year experience in the UK. As she loves the english language and never really stops talking, tour guiding was the perfect choice. As well as many people she just lived in Prague ignoring the beauty of this city and then she realised there is so much she was missing. Now she enjoys sharing the vast and interesting history as well as the experience of a true Czech.
