I was a study abroad student in America, and quite frankly, I had no idea what to expect going to Krakow. All I knew about Poland was the capital is Warsaw. After seeing an advertisement for Göksel and Kamila's food tour, I decided to go for it. And it was well worth it.
From the get-go, G&K were very accommodating. Even though no one else made a tour reservation, they were happy to give just me a tour. Because I was able to go by myself, I felt that I had a real personalized experience and feel with certainty that people should try this tour out if they can. The instant we met, with the bread and salt, I knew I was going to have a good experience and was already super excited to see what was in store.
It was nice to be guided through all the different eating spots since I would not have found these places otherwise. I got to try dishes that I had never heard of and got to hear their significance in Polish culture.
The highlight of my experience: the people! Göksel and Kamila are great conversationalists. Kamila explained to me Polish culture and how it reflected in the food, but we also talked about other aspects of Polish culture. Because the three of us had come from such different backgrounds, the differences enhanced the conversation. I imagine whether you go solo or in a group, you're bound to learn something new and exciting.
They keep it professional but not to the point where it's too serious. They're a friendly couple who ultimately just like meeting new people from different cultures and like to share their knowledge to others. It exceeded all my expectations. Gorąco polecam! I highly recommend.
