DescriptionFeast your way around Krakow on a half-day food tasting tour, and experience Polish hospitality at its most abundant! Meet your guide on Plac Wolnica (Wolnica Square), in the city’s Kazimierz district. Then, walk around some of the most historic streets, stopping for approximately 10 tastings (enough for a full meal with dessert). Learn that Polish cuisine is much more than pierogi (cheese and potato dumplings, mostly served in English-speaking restaurants) as you sample cold cuts and cheeses, regional puddings, and much more. Visit 4-6 carefully selected establishments, and hear the stories behind them. Discover why the Poles complain about the quality of their bread, why they sometimes long for food produced in the 1970s, and why 'fermented' doesn't mean 'gone off.' Walk off some of the calories along the way, admiring the Baroque and Renaissance sights of Krakow Old Town.

- Please advise of any food allergies so that the menu can be adjusted
- If the guide responsible for the tour considers a participant to be behaving in a way that is impeding the tour, the participant may be asked to leave
- Refusal for safety reasons is not grounds for a refund
