Really enjoyed this. We chose the Vodka tour as we have a mild interest in Vodka enough to warrant the tour.
We were lucky enough to meet Ania who we can't thank enough. It was myself and husband and we thought just the two of us on the tour along might make the evening conversation strained however Ania not only spent her time chatting about the various types of Vodka but also went into extensive detail on each meal that accompanied the Vodka and also gave us an insight into Polish life, family and traditions. We got so much out of the tour it acted nicely as a snippet of Poland in general.

The evening started in a traditional bar where we were served two shots and food. We then moved onto a really unusual shop / bar whereby there were over 60 types of flavoured Vodka to choose from and we were able to try a few. Favourite being Granny Vodka (cherry) and dare I say it Pepper flavoured. We fell in love with the concept of the store and it helped us appreciate the many types and traditions behind it. Next we went to another traditional bar and was served more food - enough to feel full! All traditional polish dishes. Finally we moved onto a similar concept to a Speakeasy bar that was very 'in fashion' and were treated to a choice of coctails to finish the night off.

In total we tried over eight different vodkas and five food types.

This for me was a highlight of the trip and is a must for anyone new to Poland wanting to experience the culture.

First class service, food and drink throughout!

Description

Learn about Poland’s drinking culture on a 3.5-hour tour of Krakow dedicated to all things vodka. A local guide will take you to the city’s best shot bars and share entertaining anecdotes along the way.

Poland is one of the world’s top vodka producers, and many believe that its citizens have a glass of vodka for breakfast, then one for lunch, and another before going to bed.

During this tour you’ll learn to separate fact from fiction, and find out which Polish vodkas are the best, or indeed if they have any flavour at all. Discover how vodka is produced, whether it was invented in Poland or Russia, if there’s just one kind, and whether you can make it home!

Please note that if we don't meet the required minimum of participants to start the public tour (which is 2) at least 24h ahead of the scheduled start of the tour, We will cancel the tour and refund all payments received.

Awesome
Learned a lot about Warsaw in a short night bike ride. Sunset was great from bridge. Guide was well informed and a pleasure to meet. A must do!
Quick and fun way to tour the center of Warsaw
I knew I could ride a bike, theoretically, but never actually used it to ride in a city.
What I noticed about Warsaw after spending a couple of days here is that it is a very friendly city for cyclists, safe and adapted for riding. This is why I decided to give it a try and had a very interesting tour across the historical part of the city.
The 3-hour tour will take you to the main landmarks and streets, through parks that have their own stories, to a place with popular cafes and to the bank of Wisła with a wonderful view. The pace of riding was quite easy for me as a beginner. The only hard part was to ride up the hill at the end of the tour, so I rode half the hill and went up by foot the other half. This tour was the highlight of my week in Warsaw, and I'm very glad I found it on this website.
Thanks for an exciting and well prepared bike tour!
