I was so excited to go to the underground tour and it was truly awesome. Our guide Domink was easy to understand and very knowledgable.

A really fascinating underground tour of the complex of tunnels and small rooms that families allowed to brew beer in the 14th century dug by hand. Be warned, this tour originates from a building that is NOT within the Pilsen Brewery, but is in the old city town square, which is at least a 20 minute walk from the Brewery. We didn't realize this and by the time we found the building, our tour had started. The women at the ticket office were quite upset with us, and while we tried to explain we would be happy to join the next tour in whatever language it was in, as we realized we were late. Just a note to them - yelling at us in Czech doesn't make us understand you any better. But one employee did walk us down throught the tunnels to catch up with the English tour, which was about 10-15 minutes into the tour, although she clearly wasn't happy about doing this. Our male tour guide was wonderful - he obviously loved the history and heritage of his city. There are some extremely tight spaces to walk through, so if you have a thing for being in tight spaces underground, this might not be for you. But the few tight spaces open up into larger spaces that are not so confined. The area around the Underground Tour office is within the old city square and is beautiful!

The tour covers absolutely amazing tunnels beneath the city center. History behind the tunnels is unbelievable. Guide was well educated and enthusiastic about place, yet something was missing. The whole experience felt little too tame, whole tour was in well lighted and newly paved tunnels. If you don’t mind mass tourism, the tunnels are one of the best things to see in Pilsen. If you want something authentic, the place is still interesting enough to consider it. I wish there was another longer tour to more distant parts of underground, the ones that doesn’t feel like history turned into Disneyland, with smaller groups.

Something different to do in Pilsen other than the regular brewery tour. Just note that the tour starts from the Brewery Musuem near to Courtyard by Marriott hotel and not the Pilsner Urquell Brewery. We had a great guide and learnt a lot about the town.

Interesting experience if you are in Pilsen. The tour is well-organised. You can buy tickets online, and they provide safety helmets. Unfortunately, our guide was not particularly cheerful. His English was good, but he just recited a learned speech, and spoke very fast and with a plain tone. He did not make any effort to interact with visitors, which resulted in little engagement. He was ask by a visitor to speak slowly, and he tried for about two minutes.
