Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Little Market Square (Maly Rynek), Maly Rynek, Krakow Poland

Our Krakow evening walking tour starts at Small Market Square, a former meat market located just behind the Main Market Square (Rynek Główny) and St. Mary’s Basilica.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square, Center of Old Town, Krakow Poland

Get your first taste of Polish cuisine over a discussion on Polish gastronomy inside this small but lively cafeteria where we will drink craft beers and try local snacks.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Town Hall Tower, Rynek Glowny, Krakow 31-001 Poland

In the past, this was Krakow’s Town Hall, a prison and a medieval brewery. Today it houses a small museum with panoramic views from the upper floor.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Matejko Square, Krakow Poland

This small bar serves typical grandmother style Polish cuisine. Its decoration is also very special due to fresh vegetables and huge jars of pickled cucumber or sauerkraut you can find all around you.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Kazmierz The Former Jewish District, Szeroka 24, Krakow 31-053 Poland

Our next stop is the Kazimierz quarter which in the past was a separate and autonomous city created by the king of the same name and is now the most recognizable, bohemian district of Krakow. Although it can be easily reached on foot, we will take local transport.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Kuchnia u Doroty, Augustiańska 4, 31-064 Kraków, Poland

In this locally loved restaurant, we will have tasty pierogis and potato pancakes, two dishes which are inevitable while in Poland.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square, Center of Old Town, Krakow Poland

On the way to our last stop we will show you a special courtyard, a kind of shortcut between the Catholic and Jewish part of Kazimierz. It is a place where Steven Spielberg filmed his famous movie Schindler’s List in 1993.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Pub Enigma Krakow, Grodzka 31, Krakow 31-001 Poland

In this hidden spot, we’ll raise our glasses with a shot of Poland’s famous bison grass vodka before the tour ends. Feel free to stick around or walk back to the city centre with your guide

This was SUCH a great way to spend Saturday night in Krakow! Martha (sp?) was a terrific guide-funny, personable, and full of information. She took us to so many places and we were fed so well...I was stuffed by the time we were done. I am a solo traveler, and it was a great way to meet a few people and hang out and have good conversation over delicious bites. I would definitely do this again and highly recommend to anyone visiting Krakow!

We had a great food tour with Sabrina as our guide. In a group of 8 people we went to 4 venues, tried many typical Polish dishes, drank beer and vodka and had a great time. It truly seemed like a party—I loved this experience!!

I have taken a lot of these food tours. They run from really great to the not so great. This was one of the really great tours. Joanna was so much fun and very interesting. We went to several restaurants all over the city having traditional polish food and a little beer. What we got were actual servings not just small samples, so go hungry!

This tour is highly recommended, our guide OLGA was amazing, took us to great places, the beer was great, the food was delicious, a great mix of local cuisine, including appetizers, soups and, of course, pierogis. We had a great time and the walk allow for the food to settle as there was very generous portions.

Very happy with this tour. Starting with beer was always a plus. Mostly the food was ok but didn’t necessarily tantalise the taste buds but everyone was well and truly full before the end although we all found room for cake and vodka! Our guide Matteus was informative and passionate. He provided a greater understanding of a city and country with a fascinating history. He did so much more than just show us tradional polish fare. All round a great tour!

Our guide Ulka was superb. She was so passionate about Poland, and her enthusiasm rubbed off on the small group. The best thing about this tour is that you get to go to 'real' polish restaurants and cafes and taste authentic food. You visit bars off the beaten track, hidden way, a secret almost kept by the locals to preserve the bars and make them special. We tried 3 excellent kraft beers, bread snacks, smoked cheese, 3 different soup tasters at a different traditional restaurant, and then Pierogi 5 different types including sweet/savoury and some Potato Cakes. And as if that was not enough, we had vodka shots and walnut cake in a delightful bar in Kaziemirz. Superb value for money. Our advertised 2 1/2 hour tour, ended after 4 hours!!!!!! Thanks Ulka for making it special and sharing your knowledge of Krakow with us.

I would like to give this tour a 10 if possible! This tour was through Urban Adventures. Matthew was an exceptional guide, so knowledgeable about Krakow, the history of Poland and tied it all to the food we were eating. He was very attentive to the entire group, encouraging camaraderie throughout the tour. A MUST IN KRAKOW!

our guide was amazing and we visited places we never would have known about thanks to her expertise, food was delicious and more than we could eat, excellent excursion!

Our guide was warm and welcoming and had a lot to say about Polish foods. The only tweak I'd suggest is at the soup tasting just have the soup tasting, not a tasting to pick which one we want a whole bowl of. We would have covered more ground if we spent less time at each place.

Really highly recommended. Our guide Dominik showed us very good places with the best food. She showed us the city too. Best evening ever.

This was AMAZING! It was professionally run and incredibly fun. We were taken to off-the-road places that most tourists don't see. We ended up with tons to eat and drink and enjoyed every minute of it. Our guide knew a lot about Krakow, it's history, it's cuisine and it's neighborhoods. Bravo!

We took this tour on our first evening in Krakow with another couple that had not been to Poland before. This was the perfect venue to introduce our friends to our favorite city in the world, Pawel was a terrific tour guide. The food especially the pierogi and the soups was exceptional. Loved the different beers. We had a wonderful time, lots of fun and plenty of food.
