Krakow Street Food Walking Tour

Obwarzanek - Polish Bagel

Begin your foodie experience in central Krakow, where you’ll join up with your guide. Take off around the Rynek Główny, the city’s main square, and explore the hidden culinary gems frequented by the locals.

First, bite into an obwarzanek hot off the cart as you learn about the origins of this chewy, bagel-like treat. Then, venture through the food stalls of the Stary Kleparz market, sampling Polish favourites such as tangy sauerkraut and lip-smacking sausage.

As you walk, your guide will reveal the secrets of Krakow’s cuisine as well as the country’s rich culinary traditions, many drawn from the gastronomic influences of other cultures.

Afterward, savor a classic dish of zurek (sour rye soup) and pierogi (stuffed dumplings) at a traditional restaurant. Sample a few more classic dishes and receive a souvenir booklet with secret recipes to try back at home.

After three hours of Polish history, culture and culinary delights, finish your tour back in central Krakow.

This was a fantastic food tour! We have taken quite a few as we really enjoy eating and learning about different cultures/history. Eugene was a wonderful guide with a lot of enthusiasm and knowledge! So many interesting and tasty things to try! Really loved walking through the old market that was filled with locals and having a meal of traditional foods at a restaurant! Of course, finishing it up with vodka was a plus as well! You will not be hungry afterwards! Thanks Euguene!

Really enjoyed this tour. The guide Slawek was excellent throughout, very friendly and informative. The selection of food was great and this was a great way of finding out about real Polish traditional food and the history behind it. Wandering around the market was great and we sampled a selection of food chosen and picked by the guide including picked cabbage, Polish sausage and a traditional Kravov bread/bagel. The food in the restaurant was all tasty and it was great to hear Slawk's personal stories of the food we were eating and being December he told us about a traditional Polish Christmas and how the Polish celebrate and what they eat. After the meal we left the reataurant and went for coffee and cake. The 'Pope's cake' was esquisite and if we ever return to Krakow we will be hunting this locals coffee shop down to have another piece. To finish the almost 3 hour tour we went to a Vodka shop and had a sample of a flavoured vodka of our choice from the dozens of choices. The time flew by and we had to cancel our restaurant booking for the evening as we had eaten so much. Thanks.

Good value for money. Lots of local delicacies tried in various venues, many of which we simply wouldnt have found on our own. Knowledgeable Guide and great companionship from fellow tourists in the group. Very enjoyable.

The Krakow Street food tour was fantastic and was truly one of the best highlights of the trip. I cannot say enough good things about our guide Eugene, in fact he was so good we tracked him down the next day to take another tour! As for the tour, Eugene was a great guide and took us to several great places that covered restaurants, markets, and a farmers market. The food that he turned us on to was so good we that have stopped by one of the stalls hot goat cheese with cranberries three times and we had dinner last night at the restaurant he took us to visit on the tour. We could not have been happier with the tour, Eugene was tremendous, and as a bonus the food we tasted was all paid for by the cost of the tour. We recommend this to everyone who visits Krakow.

Excellent. Plenty of samples polish circle bread from a stand, food market samples of pickles, kraut, sausage, smoked cheese. A stop at a vodka store for samples, at a restaurant for soup, bread with spreads, and pierogi. And at a bakery for coffee and cake. Walking through the streets and hearing about the foods was fun. Our guide answered all out questions. If you like to try new things and want to sample Polish foods this tour is a great choice.

Despite being Rey hot and Humid our guide Mila did her very best. The food market and the restaurant she took us too had the best polish soup I've ever had and I'm Polish decent. My nephew who is 18 thought is was one of the best tours he went on in Poland.

Our tour guide MR. Slawek was amazing in telling us about the food, history and how some are incorporated into holiday traditions. We had a lovely lunch at a traditional Polish restaurant and even our 13 year old grandson said it was his favorite tour. Having taken this tour allowed us to try polish cuisine, some that we probably would not have tried, but will be ordered again at some of the restaurants here in Krakow. Ask for our tour guide and you will not be disappointed

Mila was a delight. We had no idea we were getting a more than complete dinner of local food. It was a great start to our stay in Krakow.

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!
