Gdansk, the super-popular seside tourist destination of Northern Poland is part of what, when you grow up in Poland, you take for granted as an obvious combo: the Tricity. Composed of three very different cities, each element of the jigsaw brings in something unique: historical importance of Gdansk, party vibe of Sopot and modern elegance of Gdynia.
We always strive to provide the most amazing culinary experience and our Tricity food and drink research led us to Gdynia, which is where our Food Tour and Beer Tour takes place.
Gdynia is the newest, most tranquil and modern of the three cities and is easily accessible from both Gdansk and Sopot. Our starting point for the Tricity Food Tour is the SKM (local light rail) platform of Gdynia Główna. Below you will find detailed instructions on how to get there if you’re staying in Gdansk.
The easiest, fastest and recommended way to get to our starting point in Gdynia is by SKM light city rail. It’s a 35-min ride from Gdańsk Główny (or 15-min ride from Sopot) and only costs 6 PLN one way. After you make a booking, we will send you a detailed, printable guide (pdf format) on what time you should depart, how to buy tickets and where to get off. You can also find this information on this page.
You will need to take the 12:15pm train from Gdańsk Główny (12:35pm from Sopot) to make it in time for the tour.
Alternatively, we can organize a private transfer from Gdańsk or Sopot at an additional cost of 100 PLN from Gdańsk or 45 PLN from Sopot (total cost for up to 4 persons. The cost might be shared between participants from different bookings). Let us know when making a booking if you’d prefer to order car transfer.
As many other reviewers have said, the strength of this tour is the wealth of cultural and historic context that Magda provides, for example we learnt a lot about traditional Polish Christmases and the amazing Christmas Eve feast. Try this tour, whether you fancy a breaded cutlet or not - you won't be disappointed!
Magda was a wonderful guide, she is extremely knowledgeable and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed learning about the food and the history behind it. She also had great suggestions on where to go during our stay and the food we needed to try (that we couldn't fit in on the tour). Needless to say we spent the rest of our holiday tasting all the delights that Warsaw has to offer! Highly recommended.
Magda seriously knows a lot about Polish cuisine! We are from Lithuania so we didn't expect something too different but we were nicely surprised by tasty food and all the stories that our great guide told us.
I had a blast learning about the history of eating in Warsaw while... eating in Warsaw! Magda was our guide and she is very knowledgable and pulls from her own history and past for examples. I don't think I would have enjoyed Warsaw quite as much without this tour.
My wife and I have been on several food tours in Europe and this one is among the best. Magda is perfectly suited for the food tour and had answers to every question we asked. The way that the history, culture, and traditions of Poland are tied into the tour really made this a well balanced tour.
