FAQ

A collection of questions we are often asked about our tours:

Please go to ‘Book!’ section to check availability of the tours and make a reservation. We can take 6 people on a Food Tour and up to 8 on a Vodka Tour, so it’s the early bird rule. If the date you’re interested in is fully booked, please contact us as we may be able to open an extra tour for you. If you’d like to join the tour and it’s less than 2 hours before its scheduled start, please call us (+48 661 367 758) to check last minute availability.

Definitely yes! All the meals, drinks, snacks, even costs of transportation (if necessary during a tour or class) are covered. During the Food Tour, we will treat you to approx. 15 different food and drink tastings, and on the Vodka Tour you will try 12 tastings of vodkas and food. Still, you may want to have some spare cash if you wish to buy something on the way (like a glass of wine or a bottle of vodka to take home:).

The Food Tour tour lasts 4 hours and the Vodka Tour is approx. 3.5 hours (sometimes a bit longer, in both cases:). We do not spend the entire time eating or drinking, but also walking and discovering Warsaw and Krakow. You can be sure that these walks are really helpful after tasting these delicacies.

The Food Tour aims to be a customized, personal experience of discovering Warsaw and Krakow, its food and history. In order to guarantee that, the minimum group size is two and the maximum is 6. As drinking vodka is more of a social occassion, the maximum number for Vodka Tours is 8. Everyone is welcome, so be prepared to meet new friends, as other guests might join.

Please note that we have special offers for organized groups bigger than 6 or 8, so please contact us for details.

Eat Polska tours are independent tasting walks which aim at exposing you to the best culinary experience. Therefore, you can be sure that each and every place was carefully chosen by our local team in Warsaw, Krakow or Gdansk. The establishments we will take you to are those where we go ourselves or would often take our visiting friends so you can be sure of their highest quality.

Food Tour: The golden rule of Polish hosts is to serve the amount of food that will make a table collapse. If you enjoy Polish food, you may be sure that a tour makes for a full meal with a dessert. It will be a good idea to eat just breakfast. Please, skip lunch or you won’t be able to try everything as approx. 15 food and drink tastings will be served. We would describe the amount of food served as abundant dinner.

Vodka Tour: We are going to taste at least 6 different kinds of vodka, served in 20ml portions. Each shot of vodka is going to be accompanied with a typical vodka dish. You should not be hungry after the tour, still the focus is on drinking. Most guests tell us the description on the website underestimates the amount of food served during the tour, though:) We would describe the amount of food served as proper lunch.

WARSAW: Both tours start at the Nowy Świat, Smolna and Al. Jerozolimskie corner, on a square by a monument of a woman holding a wounded soldier on her laps. It’s just next to Charles de Gaulle roundabout, a.k.a. the Palm Tree roundabout (because of a huge, plastic palm tree in the middle). See map in our ‘Contacts’ section. You will also receive all the information via e-mail and we will make sure to be as visible as possible.

KRAKOW: The meeting point for the Food Tour is Plac Wolnica (Wolnica Sq.) in Kazimierz, by the statue of 3 musicians. You will find it past a big building (former town hall, now Ethnographic Museum), in the shade of trees. The Vodka Tour starts from the Main Square (Rynek Główny) by a big sculpture of a head by Igor Mitoraj.

Please refer to maps in the ‘Contacts’ section to see maps showing all locations.

You will be joined by one of our culinary experts who will reveal all the secrets of Polish cuisine to you. We’re not city tour guides who decided to talk about food, we’re real enthusiasts and are really passionate about culinary culture. We’re Polish and live in Warsaw or Krakow. Those stories about Christmas we’re going to tell you, we know them from our experience because this is how we celebrate. The strawberry jam recipe? That’s how our grandmothers used to do it! And that funny vodka ad we will show you: that’s the one we remember from when we were young. The stories you will hear are based on knowledge and research but you can’t beat personal experince when it comes to food culture stories and we have it! Among us there are journalists, food bloggers, translators and interpreters, restaurant managers and academics. You can get to know us a little better beforehand by clicking ‘The Team’ section on the website menu.

After confirming your booking, you will receive an email with a link to secure online payment site. Please note we don’t accept bookings that are not prepaid. Unfortunately, we’ve had some bad experience with no-shows and because of prepayments we make that leaves us with bills to pay:( If you’re making a last minute booking, please contact us and in some cases you may pay on the spot to the guide. All prices are quoted in PLN (Polish Złoty). In certain cases we will accept payment in EUR but the invoice, if you need it, will still be in PLN.
