Deep in your heart you know that there must be something more. If you want to discover real Polish cuisine, join Eat Warsaw tour.

The food tour gives you an opportunity to taste good Polish dishes and hear the stories behind them. You will learn why Poles complain about the quality of bread, why they somethimes long for food produced in the 70’s, why you can’t trust the invitation “for a cup of coffee.” You will visit 5 establishments, so be prepared for a full meal (and a dessert, of course). There will be also plenty of walking, so a pair of comfortable shoes would be a better option.

The tour is a friendly walk around the city with a Warsaw foodie, so think about is as discovering new city with a friend.

What’s Included

  • Multiple food tasting that definitely makes for a full meal. At all cost, avoid eating brunch before you join the tour!
  • Vodka tasting
  • A bilingual foodie guide
