Important information
Know before you go
• The trip takes place regardless of weather conditions
• The golden rule in Poland is to serve enough food to make a table collapse. You are advised to just eat breakfast and skip lunch, or you won’t be able to try everything
• In case a certain dish is not available, it will be replaced by another traditional dish
• If you choose the premium 5-hours version, you will need to choose between the Beer or Vodka Tasting - please advise the operator of your decision in advance
