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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Street food walking tour around Krakow. There was only 5 of us and the guide, who was very helpful and gave us lots of information about polish food. We tried lots of different Street food at the outside market. We also had a two course meal in a traditional polish restaurant with a fruity drink. We also went for a coffee and a slice of pope cake which was very nice. At the end of the tour we had the chance to try flavoured polish vodka. We loved this tour and our local, friendly guide was amazing.

Our guide was great. He took us on an easy walk for someone like me who has bad knees and back and has trouble with walking. The food he introduced us to was delicious and we even went back to the open air farmers market to get some delights we were shown the day before.

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.

Eugene, our tour guide. tailored the tour to our tastes and interest. His knowledge of Polish food and the city of Krakow proved invaluable during our entire stay in Krakow. We returned many times to the various places that we visited on this tour. His tour was one of the highlights of our stay in Krakow.

This was the highlight of our trip to Krakow. Our guide Joanna was fantastic - so friendly and eager to help. We tried so many different dishes, and were taken to some fantastic little places and hidden gems we would never have found on our own. In many of the local places we went to they didn't speak English, so it was great to have our guide there to translate and recommend things. The shop-keepers, stall holders and cafe owners seemed genuinely excited for us to try their dishes and we learned a lot about the local culture through the food we tried. We felt like we saw the 'real Krakow' and I particularly enjoyed the apple doughnuts and the sweet Pierogi - they were absolutely delicious! We were full to bursting by the end of the tour, because we were reluctant to waste anything, and the portions were generous.
