Meet your guide on Plac Wolnica (Wolnica Square), in the city’s Kazimierz district. Then, walk around some of the most historic streets, stopping for approximately 10 tastings (enough for a full meal with dessert). Learn that Polish cuisine is much more than pierogi (cheese and potato dumplings, mostly served in English-speaking restaurants) as you sample cold cuts and cheeses, regional puddings, and much more. Visit 4-6 carefully selected establishments, and hear the stories behind them. Discover why the Poles complain about the quality of their bread, why they sometimes long for food produced in the 1970s, and why "fermented" doesn't mean "gone off." Walk off some of the calories along the way, admiring the Baroque and Renaissance sights of Krakow Old Town.

    We ended up being the only two people on the tour and it was brilliant. Our guide was absolutely amazing very knowledgeable we were educated about Polish traditions and the history of their food. There were plenty of stops however if you are interested in going to the farmers market choose any day apart from Sundays. Overall a must to on a visit to Krakow!

    Alex was a very nice guy, but he needs to learn three small rules, in our opinion: 1. if he is 10 minutes late, the first thing he should do is apologise - he did not apologise at all 2. he should not arrive smoking a cigarette and throw it in the street as he greets his guests 3. he should not be looking down at the little gadget which plays the English commentary, when he should be looking at the road!

  • Krakow: 2-Hour Guided Jewish Heritage Segway Tour

    8. Krakow: 2-Hour Guided Jewish Heritage Segway Tour

    Kazimierz in Medieval times was an independent city, located south of Kraków's Old Town and separated by a branch of the Vistula River. For many centuries, Kazimierz was a place of coexistence and interpenetration of ethnic Polish and Jewish cultures. The north-eastern part of the district was historically Jewish, whose Jewish inhabitants were forcibly relocated in 1941 by the German occupying forces into the Krakow ghetto, just across the river in Podgórze. Today, Kazimierz is one of the major tourist attractions of Krakow, and an important center of cultural life of the city. Together with your guide, you are going to delve into the unique ambience of Krakow's most bohemian part of the city, with its countless cafes, magnificent food, and vibrant nightlife. Through Vistulas boulevards, you are going to drive on Segways right into the heart of Kazimierz.

    I was the only person on the tour, I was messaged the night before asking if I could change my time because of ‘technical difficulties’ but they obviously didn’t want to run for just one person! but after notifying them that I couldn’t change because of a flight scheduled, they still ran it. I had an accident on the Segway and the tour guide was very concerned and cared to ensure I was okay before we continued and continued to make sure. The tour did only go for 1.5 hours, but I assume that was because I was the only one on the tour and we were able to go everywhere quicker than with a larger group. The guide was very knowledgeable and nice. I would do this again!
