With taste buds sated, you’ll part ways with your guide here, where you can continue exploring the area on your own.
This was SUCH a great way to spend Saturday night in Krakow! Martha (sp?) was a terrific guide-funny, personable, and full of information. She took us to so many places and we were fed so well...I was stuffed by the time we were done. I am a solo traveler, and it was a great way to meet a few people and hang out and have good conversation over delicious bites. I would definitely do this again and highly recommend to anyone visiting Krakow!
We had a great food tour with Sabrina as our guide. In a group of 8
people we went to 4 venues, tried many typical Polish dishes, drank beer and vodka and had a great time. It truly seemed like a party—I loved this experience!!
I have taken a lot of these food tours. They run from really great to the not so great. This was one of the really great tours. Joanna was so much fun and very interesting. We went to several restaurants all over the city having traditional polish food and a little beer. What we got were actual servings not just small samples, so go hungry!
This tour is highly recommended, our guide OLGA was amazing, took us to great places, the beer was great, the food was delicious, a great mix of local cuisine, including appetizers, soups and, of course, pierogis.
We had a great time and the walk allow for the food to settle as there was very generous portions.
Very happy with this tour. Starting with beer was always a plus. Mostly the food was ok but didn’t necessarily tantalise the taste buds but everyone was well and truly full before the end although we all found room for cake and vodka! Our guide Matteus was informative and passionate. He provided a greater understanding of a city and country with a fascinating history. He did so much more than just show us tradional polish fare. All round a great tour!
We had a fantastic tour with our guide Mateusz. He was very knowledgeable and gave lots of interesting facts about Krakow. The food was brilliant and overall very good value for money. We would definitely recommend this tour and Mateusz to friends.
Our guide Ulka was superb. She was so passionate about Poland, and her enthusiasm rubbed off on the small group. The best thing about this tour is that you get to go to 'real' polish restaurants and cafes and taste authentic food. You visit bars off the beaten track, hidden way, a secret almost kept by the locals to preserve the bars and make them special. We tried 3 excellent kraft beers, bread snacks, smoked cheese, 3 different soup tasters at a different traditional restaurant, and then Pierogi 5 different types including sweet/savoury and some Potato Cakes. And as if that was not enough, we had vodka shots and walnut cake in a delightful bar in Kaziemirz. Superb value for money. Our advertised 2 1/2 hour tour, ended after 4 hours!!!!!! Thanks Ulka for making it special and sharing your knowledge of Krakow with us.
Ulla met us early and gave us a tour of the old town and Jewish district of Krakow. Our first stop was to try a couple of local beers followed by a stop at a local restaurant to sample several Polish soups. Our final stop to the Jewish Disrict for several plates of Perogi. Very informative tour!
