Excellent tour and experience!
Feb 2020
What a wonderful tour! Sabina was fantastic, discussing cultural and historical influences on Polish cooking, while showing me some amazing food within a short walk of the Main Square. Sabina definitely went the extra mile to show me parts of Krakow I should explore, and by talking to me about the various dishes ingredients and historical background, even sending me some recipes later on for the dishes I really enjoyed! If you are at all interested in eating some delicious food while learning about the city, I would highly recommend this tour.

Favorite Travel Experience!
This was by far one of our favorite activities that we’ve done while traveling!!! We started by going to a local market to buy all of the ingredients (in Polish!), which was great to interact with the locals and learn some of the language. Sabina was an amazing host, once we got back to her house she made us feel right at home. It honestly felt like hanging out with friends rather than a group of strangers which was really great. We all took turns with different parts of the prep, mixing, cooking and then ate while the conversations continued. She gave us city maps that their group put together of things to see, restaurants and local shops (added bonus they tried to pick sustainable minded places). The snacks and local beer provided was a nice added touch to a very fun cooking class. It’s a really great choice if you like to learn how the locals live when traveling! This group absolutely goes above and beyond to give you an unforgettable experience, I can’t recommend it enough!

Great Polish Home Cooking
Feb 2020 • Friends
My friend and I had an such an amazing experience with our tour guide, Sabina. We were 15 minutes late and she kindly waited for us. The pace of the experience was perfect. Sabina is professional, kind, and very knowledgable. I highly recommend this experience. I’ve been on several guided tours with different tour companies and in different countries, but I never experienced something so authentic. We truly felt like we were one of the locals!

A Few Of My Favorite Things
I love food. I enjoy learning about a country's culture and people anywhere I travel and to me, the best way to do that is to go where they go. Eat and appreciate the foods they enjoy.
Sabrina, my Urban Adventures guide, was fabulous. I was lucky to have her knowledge and attention all to myself.
Our home cooking began with of course, the market, where she is known and appeared to be well liked. She was well prepared with pre printed phrases for me to order the items needed. I did learn some fascinating snippets of Polish food origins, and discovered I had been slacking in my foodie experience on my previous visits to Poland. Tried Polish micro brewed beer (I dont even drink or like beer) and it wasnt bad. Loved the smoky cheeses, hardy breads and cheesecake (dessert).

Sabrina was a very patient teacher, warmly friendly with a great personality. Learning in her kitchen is exactly how I cook at home with friends. In the kitchen, easy conversation sharing and sipping while making food with love.

I learned how to make something I enjoy eating and can make for my friends who also enjoy it.

Would recommend this home cooking adventure and absolutely ask for Sabrina. For me, having other items to make instead of only pierogis, would definitely bring me back on my future planned visits. A solid A+ tour.

A great authentic experience
Dec 2019
My partner and I absolutely loved this experience! Sabrina was a fantastic and friendly guide who walked us through the step by step process of making pierogi. We were joined on the tour by other likeminded people, making the experience a great way to make new friends, whilst learning something new. Thank you for a fab morning!!

Great Experience!
Dec 2019
My wife and I absolutely enjoyed this experience. One of the best I've had during my almost three years in Krakow. Our guide Alicja was great and we had a fun time getting to know one another. Loved going to the local market, picking the ingredients for the pierogi and meeting the vendors. Taking the tram to her flat to make the pierogi was wonderful and we had a great time. I high recommend it if you are looking for the true Polish experience.

This was absolutely an amazing tour! I actually missed it (I was an hour late because I had the times mixed up), and the coMany rescheduled me for the next day absolutely no problem. Thank goodness! Oglierd was our guide and he was an amazing teacher and chef! What a great, intimate small group experience to really learn about the Polish culture. Our Pierogie were delicious!!! You’re stupid if you don’t book this tour!

Good Authentic Experience
Nov 2019 • Couples
Had a great cooking class with Sabine in our stay in Kraków! It was fun to sit and cook with a local. Beyond good food we also got to talk with her about what life is like in Kraków and get a more authentic feel for the city. The food was great and we enjoyed making it! Only comment to the company (I assume all the hosts do a similar menu) would maybe be to have 2 fillings for the pierogis. Had a great time and would recommend to anyone visiting the city looking to do something a little different!
