My wife and I had a really great time on this tour. The hosts, Monika and Stefano, were wonderful - very friendly, welcoming and interesting people. Conversation flowed very easily and Monika was extremely helpful in giving us information about Krakow and the surrounding area. We tried a number of Polish specialities that we shopped for which were all delicious and we all made pierogi together in their beautiful flat. Pierogi is a really delicious dumpling filled with savoury delights, and is essentially made in the same way as pasta so it was great to learn how to make it. Stefano originated from Italy so told us how we can apply similar techniques to Italian pasta-making. This was an especially great tour because Monika and Stefano had loads of information about Poland and Polish traditions but have also obviously travelled a lot and have very interesting stories to tell. And their 18 month old daughter joined us at the end and she's super cute! Highly recommended for those who would like to do something that shows how locals live, while learning something new and finding out a lot about the city of Krakow and Polish people and traditions.
This was an amazing experience! We were able to experience a Saturday morning market and then traveled to a traditional Polish home. Thomas and his family welcomed us as if we were long-time friends. We had such fun making pierogis and enjoying the family. It truly was one of the highlights of our trip. Thank you Thomas for such a wonderful day!
