What you'll do

We kick things off at the first bar with a big spread of Polish style tapas. Think fresh crusty breads, tasty cured meats, smoked and salted mountain cheeses. With the food you’ll be sampling two incredible and historic Polish clear vodkas while taking our crash course in vodka history, production and culture. There's lots of funny stories and we keep the history short and sweet although us guides will be more than happy to go into more detail throughout the tour.

We’ll then take you on an adventure through the cobblestone streets of Kraków’s UNESCO World Heritage Old Town to explore the city’s hidden vodka bars and cafes. You’ll step back in time through the doors of a communist era shot bar, explore one of Europe’s only home-made flavoured vodka cafes and get cosy in a hole-in-the wall candlelit vodka bar boasting more than one-hundred varieties. The flavoured vodkas really are mind-blowingly good and there's more than two-hundred varieties stocked by the bars on the tour.

At the end of the tour we'll be stopping off to check out the city’s best Pierogi in our favourite foodie joint, perfect to soak up all the vodka and make sure you're not too wobbly on your feet :)

Hey from Klaudia, Anna, Angie, Ben and Edyta! We're friendly local history buffs, foodies, travel lovers and.... professional vodka guides. (Yes it's a thing but please don't tell our mums!) Besides drinking with friends and family we've completed courses, attended tastings by the Polish Vodka Association and visited vodka festivals up and down the country. We love our city and have an incredible knowledge of local food, culture, history and nightlife. We’ve joined together as friends to give you not only the perfect introduction to Polish vodka, but also the perfect welcome to Krakow itself.

Where you'll be

We like to focus on smaller places with great atmosphere, quality vodka, great selections of vodka and interesting back stories.

Our second bar (usually) has the best selection of different clear and flavoured vodkas in Krakow, hands down.

The third has makes their own homemade flavoured vodkas, potentially the only shop of its kind in Europe.

We hit up a Communist Era style bar fourth and a great little Pierogi restaurant last.

I can recommend this experience. If you do it at the beginning of your trip, you‘ll get exciting advice for some bars and restaurants!

The tour was fantastic. An amazing way to learn about vodka and it’s relevance to Polish culture and history. Iza was a great host, she gave us an interesting, funny and at times thought provoking tour. We were able to drink in bars we wouldn’t have found by ourselves which was great. Social distancing and cleanliness of all places were up to standard and did not feel concerned at any point. Highly recommend, left Poland with four bottles of vodka it was that good!

Our tour with Izabella was lovely. She was incredibly friendly and such a fun person to hang out with. We felt very well taken care of and learned a lot about vodka, as well as drank lots of it. Had such a good evening!Highly recommended!

We had a great evening with Edyta and tasted several fantastic Polish vodkas. She knew so much about the history of vodka and the area.
