Duration: 3 Hours
On a culinary journey featuring the perfect blend of craft beers and Czech cuisine, get a taste of the best of Prague. Venture through the New Town and the Old Town to seek out the city’s lesser known gems. For over a millennium, brewing beer has been a tradition in Prague and is constantly being renovated and modernized. You’ll taste six of the top beers, sampling some old-fashioned brews along with some new, rediscovered tastes. Visit a modern tapas bar, where you’ll eat a typical Czech dish paired with a perfect brew crafted just for this restaurant. Continue on to a beer garden, a concealed favorite that is frequented by locals. Then, in the quaint side of the Old Town, it’s off to a restaurant that teamed up with an award winning brewery. Your food trip continues on a boat, a unique brewery that combines old recipes with new trends. Try their legendary dark lager, pair with a goulash cooked with the same beer.

*Must be 18 or older to participate.

The guide will meet and drop off guests at the hotel and guests should expect to walk from venue to venue – at most for 20 minutes at a time and sometimes on cobblestone streets (but level ground the entire time).

No Worries Protection Plan


What exactly is your cancellation waiver?

We have the best cancellation waiver in the industry-period. You can cancel your trip up until the day prior to departure for any reason - sickness, change of heart or any reason whatsoever-and you will receive a full refund, minus the small cost of the insurance. That's a cash refund, not a voucher or certificate. There's no risk when you book with Collette.

But isn't it expensive?
Not at all! Let's say you were planning to take our Italian Vistas tour for 13 days. The land-only waiver is just $170 per person. That breaks down to about $13.07 a day-just a little over eight euros! The land and air waiver is only $30 more. That's airplane peanuts compared to the peace of mind you'll enjoy.

Plus, you're covered on tour.
Our cancellation waiver and insurance plan covers you on tour. If you have to stop your trip or return home early, need medical assistance or evacuation, suffer a baggage loss or delay; or are delayed on tour for 12 hours or more, you're covered.

Testimonials:
My husband had an accident in New Zealand…He subsequently had to be transferred by ambulance to Invercargill (Southland Hospital) to have surgery on his leg. He spent one week in the hospital. I am so glad we always take out the insurance. This is our third trip with Collette and we always take out the insurance…In spite of the accident, we had a wonderful time in Australia and New Zealand up to Queenstown and we are very glad we took the trip. Genevieve Gallagher, Clifton Park, NY

We had one unfortunate problem; one traveler broke her ankle…Thank goodness I insist that my passengers take the insurance. Virginia Gratton, Greenport, NY


CANCELLATION WAIVER & INSURANCE PLAN
Exception: If you originally purchased non-refundable airline tickets, the Waiver does not provide a refund for the airline tickets, taxes or fees in the event of a cancellation or a return transportation benefit if you must return home early.

The Waiver Fee does not cover any single supplement charges which arise from an individual’s traveling companion electing to cancel for any reason prior to departure. In this case, the single supplement will be deducted from the refund of the person who cancels. Division of this charge between the two passengers involved is solely their responsibility. If insufficient funds are deducted from the canceling client, the traveling client will be charged the remaining portion of the single supplement.

Payment of the Waiver Fee (if chosen) must be received by Collette Vacations with your Deposit. The Waiver is non-transferable and valid for each applicant only.

Collette Vacations can assume no responsibility for and cannot be held liable for any wrongful, negligent or unauthorized acts or omissions of any travel agent or travel agency other than that of Collette Travel Service, Inc. itself, and its own employees.
