My guide was really good! Down there it can be a "little bit" claustrophobic because the wall are low and the space to walk is thigh but it is worth.

It was quite a treat to be able to go under and see a bit of what the town used to be. The narrative of the tour though have room for improvement to make it more fun and expand it to include more of the historical aspect of the place. Still, this tour is worth seeing if only that you... More

Our tour guide was kind, informative, the entrance was super easy to find... Pilsen is not that big and you can easily walk anywhere. Wear your hard hat and enjoy a coupon for an unfiltered Pilsner Urquell beer after the tour! I stayed for a few mugs of the delicious brew.

The tunnels above the city were once homes and streets. The museum does provide audio guides just in case the tour in your preferred language is not available. Exploring the tunnels below, you will also learn about what life was like, including diets, tools, and the class divide that existed. This is a cool tour, so if you love history,... More

The underground is very interesting to see. Plus you will get a free beer to the ticket. Moreover, if you buy the entrance to the beer museum, you will even get 25% discount and another beer.

The Underground tour is a must if you visit Pilsen. Our guide was very knowledgeable and also has a sense of humor - making learning the history of the place very enjoyable! We didn't realize there was so much going on there and all the historical anecdotes of how people lived back then. It was eye-opening and better than I... More

When in Pilsen dont forget to look under the surface. The underground tour (starting at the brewery museum) is a must do. A plethora of tunnels stretch under Pilsens many square. Relics going back to the middle ages have been unearthed. How they dug these tunnels by hand starting in the 14th century is amazing.

I really enjoyed this tour. You have to go in a group - there are miles of tunnels so you could easily get lost otherwise. The tour lasted about an hour. The guide was excellent, really funny and with lots of information about why the tunnels were built and what they were used for. There's quite a lot of walking... More

The 1-hour underground tour was very interesting. You have to don a hard-hat, and I was glad because several times I hit my helmet on a low section of the tunnels. It was interesting hearing about how they were used during the Middle Ages and wars. At the end of the tour you get a free beer voucher – no... More
