This food tour was definitely a highlight of my Krakow trip. It exposed me to different Polish dishes, from the traditional to the modern. It started off in Kazimierz and ended up in a neighborhood a little on the outskirts of the Planty. The tour guide Maurycy was very knowledgable and personable. He made the tour very enjoyable and provided a good insight into Polish culture as well. There is quite a bit of walking and towards the end the pacing of the restaurants are little rushed. The next restaurant was literally across the street so there was no time to digest the previous restaurant's food, but this is probably a minor critique to a great food tour.

Description

When most people think of Polish cuisine, pierogi is usually the only thing that springs to mind. These tasty cheese and potato dumplings are served in all English-speaking restaurants.

For a more unusual taste of Poland, join our food tour and learn what Polish cuisine is really about. You’ll savour a range of typical Polish dishes at 4–6 carefully selected locations, and hear the stories behind everything you try.

Find out why Poles complain about bread quality, why they sometimes long for food produced in the 1970s, why fermented doesn’t mean something has gone bad, and much more.

Be prepared for an equivalent of a full meal, including a dessert of course! The tour involves a bit of walking, so you’ll burn some calories throughout the afternoon – just remember to wear comfortable shoes.

Wonderful
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.

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.
