What you'll do

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.

Other things to note
The experience will be a demonstration with planted truffles (historically, up to 50 kg of truffles were sold in old Prague markets). They're now protected, so we won't harm natural populations.

Where you'll be

You will enjoy the truffle hunting and dog training in the park around Petřín Hill, offering one of the best views of Old Town (Staré Město). You'll be surprised to see the nature preserves found in the very center of Prague. But don't worry, our entire walk will be easily manageable for everyone.

This was a very fun and informative tour on the history of truffle hunting. Petr did a great job explaining how truffle hunting works and the demonstrations with Nela were really amazing to see. Petr was also very knowledgeable in general and very responsive to questions. The lunch at the end of the tour with fresh truffles was quite delicious!!! This was quite a unique experience and I would highly recommend it!

Passar un matí amb en Jakob i la Nela em va servir per apendre moltes coses sobre el món de les tòfones, menjar bé i presenciar un espectacle únic

Absolutely unique experience. I learned so much from Petr about truffles and dog training. He was incredibly knowledgeable about truffle hunting, the business of truffles and just an awesome person to chat with. We took a beautiful walk with perfect views and lunch was delicious and the truffles Petr brought with him made it so special. It was more than you could imagine!

If you love dogs and are a foodie, this trip is for perfect for you. We had a wonderful morning hanging out with James and Nela the dog - lots of great information and striding around the parkland following Nela in her search. Even though it was raining, it was still a highlight of our stay in Prague, and the truffle lunch at the end where we warmed up and chatted with James was delicous.

This was a unique experience that we wouldn't have associated with Prague - so it felt special to learn about Truffles there. The hosts were incredibly knowledgable, experienced and passionate. It was a very interesting session, with friendly vibes, and also an opportunity to see great views of the city as they shared local tips and recommendations for our stay. Thank you!
