I had a great time on the Vodka Tour this week. Karol was an excellent guide, shared great information, interesting historical perspectives and many personal stories and experiences about Vodka. You can tell he loves what he does! I also loved the extra tidbits about the various restaurants we visited, the history and background! This made for a fabulous tour! I look forward to returning to Warsaw in November and booking this tour for our group who will be in town for a convention! Well done, Karol!

Description

Learn about Poland’s drinking culture on a 3.5-hour tour of Warsaw 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.

SAFETY
Please note that the tour guide may refuse a participant on the tour/ask a participant to leave the tour if they consider the participant to be unfit to participate (drunk, aggressive, etc.) Refusal for safety reasons is not grounds for a refund.

One of the best tours ever!
A must for anyone interested in quick but valuable overview of Polish culture, food, and of course vodka tradition.

Insightful
Warsaw is Ashkinasy history and have done this tour for the second time with Gawal. Good knowledge and tackles all your questions. Allow 4 hours for private tour. Recommend.

Great food tour in Krakow!
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.

First class service, food and drink throughout!
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.

Fun and Informative Craft Beer Tour
We toured the Krakow Craft Beer scene with Tomek and it was GREAT. Tomek knows way more about beer, craft beer, beer brewing, history of beer, than you can possibly imagine. Being a craft brewer himself, he has a true passion for the subject and truly enjoys sharing his knowledge with the novice tourist. He took my sister and I to very interesting places, with GREAT food and GREAT beer. He tuned in immediately to our beer preferences, and made sure we got acquainted with beers we could really enjoy. He is very pleasant and considerate guide and when offered many great recommendations for food and beer for the rest of our stay. Don't miss this tour!
