For us, this tour was superb. The guide Slawek was enthusiastic, friendly and full of information. Please excuse me for not quoting the actual Polish names, but we started off with the Polish bagel and then moved on to the food market where Slawek bought for us samples of pickled cabbage and some herdsmen cheese. He also showed us other vegetables and explained how the cabbage and cheese were made etc. We then went to a restaurant where we had some Polish sour rye soup Zurpek and then three types of perogio Polish dumplings. After that we moved on to a traditional Polish coffee house where we had a piece of cream gateau the Pope's cake and a coffee. Finally, we moved on to shop selling different vodka liqueurs, which of course we sampled. We did not need much for dinner that evening!
Really upset with Viator and the booking process. Our voucher said 12 noon and when we turned up at 10 to 12 was told it would be as usual going at 2.30. We were lucky we weren't leaving that day and could still make it. Meant we had a lot of time to walk around in the cold. Not at all happy Viator!!
Our guide was good and informative, didn't cost much money, was worth it.
If you want to experience something a little bit different when visiting Krakow then this is the tour for you. You not only get to sample the traditional Polish food but you get to learn about the city and the people who live there. Our guide Eugine who was fantastic took us first to a Polish market where we sampled a selection of meats and cheeses along with sauerkraut. Was great to see a part of the city that was 'off the beaten track' from normal tourist haunts. We then went on to a restaurant, again a hidden spot away from the obvious restauranteurs, where we were served us a delicious starter and main. We had dessert in a café not too far away from the restaurant and ended our tour sampling Polish vodka. Great trip that a would highly recommend at any time of the year.
Myself and wife found this tour fascinating gave you a taste of the real Poland sampling food in the market it was only a small group of 9 people. We also had included in the tour a visit to restaurant to have a meal during the communist time which in its self was interesting ,you go also to a delicatessen to sample Pope cake ending up finally a Vodka shot all in all fascinating well worth the money would recommend
Great tour! I can't believe how much food we got during the tour. Do not eat lunch before you start - you'll be stuffed by the end. Great value and lots of fun. I recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get a taste of Polish cuisine.
We purchased our tour which was scheduled for 11am. My daughter and I arrived 15 minutes before our scheduled tour time. After waiting 30 minutes for our guide to arrive, I asked the person at the travel agency to find out where our guide was. After making a call she told us our tour was never scheduled for 11am and that we needed to return at 230pm. I explained to her we had a flight in the afternoon and could not come back. She did not care or offer us any solution. She told us that Viator made the mistake and we needed to take it up with them. What I don't understand is why we received a confirmation stating our tour was at 11am. Also, why when I look on viator's website does it still show this tour offered for 11am. WE ARE VERY DISAPPOINTED and had looked forward to this tour. The tour office is only a broker and could have cared less.
