We had the most wonderful few hours with the crew in Petrin Park and a delicious lunch in their excellent company. Nala was a joy to watch. I would recommend this tour very highly. Not only is it a fascinating insight into the (sometimes shady) business of truffles, but it’s excellent value for money in that you have a delicious lunch included in the price and you receive a few fresh truffles to take home. An all round great experience!

Very special event in Prague! The guide and the dog, both Nellies made it a real experience, we learned a lot about truffles, how to train dogs and we event found two truffles. From the park you also have a nice view over Prague. The lunch was also very tasty.

What a treat (pun intended)

Our experience with Nellie and Nala was so interesting and fun. Where your comfort shoes if you go Nellie likes to go in the hills not on flat land for her adventures. I am so glad we got to experience the only dog hunting Truffle hunter in Prague. It was so interesting to see how this process works and being a successful hunt with her. This is one you must do especially if your a dog lover.
