Amazing, tasty and insightful tour to Polish cuisine!

We booked this tour during our company offsite and I'm very happy we did. Our tour guide Anja was great, warm and welcoming to all of us. Not only did she guide us through the different dishes and how to eat them she also told us small anecdotes of the city. There was definitely more food available that we could possible eat and also couple different local beverages. I was also positively surprised how well both restaurants took into consideration the dietary preferences our group had and all of us were able to enjoy the tour! Thank you for this wonderful experience!

Good visit with a friendly and professional guide Joanna.
