Full description
The culture of eating has strong roots among Polish people ⁠— let your professional private guide show you the best dishes from Polish cuisine in 2, 3, or 4 carefully chosen local venues. At these places, you'll get a special chance to try, compare, and choose your favorites from a wide range of traditional dishes. As you go from one venue to another, take in some sightseeing of the most iconic places in the city, like Sigmund's Column, Warsaw Barbican, or Main Market Square. During your tastings, your guide will provide insight into Polish traditions and customs, and tell you about which meals are related to which occasion.

Choose the 2.5-hour option to try a basic set of food in 2 venues, including different kinds of dumplings, Polish meats, and other specialities, as well as one soft drink and cake and coffee/tea (excluding soup and beer).

Barbara introduced us to her city very well.

The 5 hours were a bit exhausting. The temperature was over 30 ° C. Barbara has made the time but with their interesting stories and explanations very bearable. The food tasted good and was plentiful. We visited three restaurants. First appetizers, in the next a main plate and finally coffee with delicious cake.
