Delicious , Informative and Enjoyable
Highly professional from start to end. Really an excellent way to get a good feel for local cuisine, and an intro to a cool neighbourhood. Aside from great guide(s) and a fairly small group, the slected venues were top notch with excellent service. Seemed to get the balance between authenticity and quality just right. Even the pace was just right. Nice follow up too. Would definitely recommend for all.

This is no doubt the best way to experience traditional Polish food. Kamila and George are both exceptional and very informative guides.

Very nice tour with good food!
A big part when traveling is the oportunity to try local food. Knowlegde of what to eat and drink without getting caught in the tourist traps is not always easy to catch though. This tour really give a very good and interesting view, and fast, of Krakows (and Polands) food culture. It was a very nice, and good, evening for me and my friends and the guides did a very good job when teaching us about the vidden food gems in Krakow. I definetly can recommend this tour to anyone interested in trying and learni g ord about the food scene in Krakow. Singel traveleres as well as couples or friends. You will for sure get and interesting and fun evening and You will. Ot go home hungry!

Lovely to meet Marta and watch her making pierogi. It wasn’t really a pierogi making workshop though as this is a separate event. We were able to help fill a few only. The food was very nice. It would have been good if Marta had been able to talk more about life in Kraków but conversation often dominated by one of the guests.

I had such an amazing experience at Marta's home! She was so welcoming and kind and was willing to share all about what to expect for the evening. The other people that were apart of the dinner were just as friendly and welcomed me with open arms. Upon walking into Marta's home, everything was absolutely beautiful in her kitchen and she was happy to share all of the details about the interior from what we could see. On top of all of that, all of the food Marta made was to die for and it allowed me to try foods that I normally wouldn't have eaten! This is definitely a great way to meet a local and learn more about Krakow and Poland in general!

We had a superb evening at Marta's house last week during our 4 day break to Krakow. It was such a refreshing change to sit with new people and also learn a little more about life from 'real' locals. Marta is a charming hostess and her food (excellent polish cuisine) was delicious. I know that several of the dishes were real 'slow cooked' food and they were clearly made with a lot of care and patience. If you are visit in Krakow, check out the site and see what's on. You won't regret it.

Highly recommend this food tour. Great way to learn about Polish cuisine and culture. Our guide was excellent and really approachable and knowledgable. It was a fantastic opportunity to try food we might not have, had we been on our own. As an added bonus it feel like you have your own guide of the city too as you are walking from place to place.

Perfect Last Night in Krakow!
The walking food tour of Kazimierz was perfection! We had some of the most amazing food we had on our trip and everything was warm and inviting. Kamila and Goksel were absolutely terrific hosts and guides! You would be a fool not to book this tour if you ever find yourself in Krakow. We didn't want the tour to end!

Pretty poor experience
Our guide had never done this trip before and was in a rush to do another job so literally dropped us off and disappeared. We had no info at all on how the dinner worked and the waiter spoke no English. There was no choice of the hot food dishes. It just appeared and you got what you were given. No description or choice. We were only aware of the buffet from the advert we'd seen. Entertainment was good if somewhat sporradic and immediately blocked access to the drinks bar. We had no idea what was coming up next at all or when we would be collected or by whom. We had to call the tour company to find out what was happening. Good job we did or we would have ended up on completely the wrong transport back. In all, very badly organised and not really the value for money we had come to expect from the tour company . So whilst enjoyable it fell far short of expectations and we can't really recommend it.

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.

recommend for the first introduction to Polish cuisine
Met two very knowledgeable tour guides from completely different areas. Their combined experiences taught us much more than just tasting different foods. However, the choices and verity were perfect to start our trip in Poland. This should be a must tour for anyone interested in trying the local food ! I only wish I had a list of the restaurants we visited so we could have returned. I loved the area and every restaurant we sampled.

A taste of polish culture
As a tourist, one visits many places of interest. This folk show is another aspect to taste polish culture; beautifully embroided costumes, jolly music, dancing and singers. All of this can be enjoyed in a typical log chalet with an abundance of food and drink. Good value for money. Enjoyed the evening very much, therefore I highly recommend it.

We had a great tour through Krakow with our guide, Tamara. She was passionate about culinary adventures and everything on our tour was very well organized and delicious. The tour was a delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Highly recommend.

I enjoyed a great food tour with Tamara from Eat Krakow. We covered Polish street food, markets, casual and fine dining as well as dessert. Needless to say, we were pleasantly satiated! Tamara was an excellent tour guide and a passionate foodie - it's clear she loves her work. She kept the group moving at a good pace and was full of information about Polish cuisine. I recommend doing the tour at the start of your time in Krakow so you can take up her wonderful suggestions!
