We haven’t done a food tour before, so didn’t quite know what to expect. The meeting place was easy to find and the tour started on time. The group was small, about 8, which is a good number and the guides English was good. The places we went to were away from the tourist areas and the best place we visited was the local food market which had some amazing food to taste! The only thing that let this tour down was the last stop on the tour as the cake we tried seemed very dry and stale like it was older, but apart from that this was a good tour and the guide was knowledgeable about all the food we tried. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting as it showed you the local side of the city rather than the expensive tourist food places :)

I booked this tour for myself and my 15 year old niece as she wanted to try Polish food properly, it was a really good couple of hours, we got to try lots of different things and kept us both interested throughout. We were taken to some places that we wouldn't have normally found which was good to see the more traditional and family run restaurants. Our guide was lovely and had lots of information and knew a lot about the history of what we were doing and the foods that we were trying. Well worth doing and get a lot for your money.

Absolutely brilliant!!!

This was an absolutely an amazing tour! Only decided to take this tour after we saw it advertised while in Krakow. The tour guide was so knowledgeable about all aspects of the food and drink we sampled and answered every question that was asked of him expertly, he told us very interesting stories related to the food. Highly recommend this tour.
