Krakow Evening Food Walking Tour

Krakow Evening Food Walking Tour

Begin your evening tour in central Krakow, where you’ll take off into the streets with your guide.

Travel first to Mały Rynek (Small Market Square) and try oscypek (smoked sheep’s cheese) and other specialties. Sip on some refreshing Polish beer before heading to Rynek Główny, the city’s main market square. As you go, hear more about Poland’s culinary influences and history from your guide, including how exactly the Poles came to hold stew, pierogies and soup so close to their hearts.

Continue to one of the square's hidden gems to sample a hot, Krakovian soup. Learn the signficance of beetroot soup while you eat, and the story behind the city's yearly soup festival.

After following your guide past Wawel Royal Castle and Cathedral, stop to dig into some authentic pierogies. Savor a taste of the ‘real deal,’ stuffed with meat, potatoes, cheese, sauerkraut or even fruit.

Afterward, head to Kazimierz, the former Jewish district that has since been transformed into a bustling culinary hub, with many restaurants still loyal to their Jewish roots. Complement your dishes with a shot of ‘bison grass’ vodka, containing a blade of grass from the Białowieża Forest for freshness.

With taste buds sated, you’ll part ways with your guide here, where you can continue exploring the area on your own.

Unfortunately we cannot rate this tour as we missed it due to a 5 hour flight delay from Warsaw. We did try to reschedule and the contact lady was very helpful, but unfortunately due to time restrictions we were not able to do this tour.

We take food tours wherever we go and this was one of the best. It is always a good way to get the feel of the city you are in. As it turned out we were the only ones on this tour. Do start on this tour hungry, because you will try a lot of food and drink. We were full by the end of this tour. As we walk from place to place we were given a lot of information about the areas we were walking through and a lot of the history.
Krakow is a great town. Good food, very clean. lot of things to see and do. Highly recommend this tour.

Really enjoyed the evening with Matheus. He was professional in his dealings as he arranged the different food samples for us to taste. The areas we travelled showed Kraków beautifully especially as the evening darkened and it came alive. But above all else was the guide himself as he talked with love and pride of his country and how they are struggling to meet the changes and challenges of the 21 st century. This insight of Poland made the night special and the tour special.

This tour is not to be missed! Our guide, Tomas, was brilliant. He was enthusiastic, a great dinner companion, and a font of knowledge about Krakow's neighborhoods, history and foldaways. We were taken to several charming, out of the way eateries and the food was delicious. The best we've had in Krakow. We walked through the Old Town and Jewish Quarter and he provided excellent commentary. Thank you, Tomas!

My wife and I took the food tour with Tomaz this evening. It was fantastic, the best tour we have
ever taken. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about Poland, Kraków, food, history and culture and made our experience most enjoyable. The food and beverages were delightful, and the commentary was educational and fun. This was a great bargain and our host took us
to a nice mix of places and Neighborhoods. We recommend it most highly to others.
