Full description
Get to know one of Europe’s most beautiful cities in one of the best ways possible: through its food. While it might still be an underrated destination, Ljubljana has been slowly upping its culinary game, emerging as a city perfect for travelling foodies. After meeting your friendly local guide in Prešeren Square in the very center of the city, head straight for Ljubljana’s vibrant farmers market to discover hidden gems, and wander through the inner market, tasting some local goodies. You’ll also check out the fish market and try a sip of fresh milk straight from the farm.  Next, make your way to the heart of Ljubljana’s Old Town, past some of the city’s most famous landmarks whose stories will be revealed to you as you walk. You'll make two tasty stops as you walk across the Town square, where you will have the chance to try some local honey as well as a sweet-salty bite of handmade chocolate topped with fleur de sel.  Digging even deeper into the region’s food scene, you’ll learn about the importance of the Slovenian forest and its fruits. Sample a liquor made from blueberries, dried figs or honey, which will help you understand the cultural importance of these drinks and their importance in shaping the national character.  Even though you’ve been snacking all day, now it’s time for a proper meal. Continue to a restaurant where locals love to go for their daily lunch. The menu offers three different options (always including a vegetarian dish). Stomachs full of hearty food and heads filled with local lore, visit one of the most charming streets in the city, where a real gem is hiding — one that offers lots of Instagram-worthy views of Ljubljana. Your tour will finish here and your local guide can give you directions back to the city center, as well as recommendations for what else to see and do in Ljubljana during your stay.

I’m really happy with the tour! The guide was really nice and happy to tell you all the things you wanted to know about the city and the food. I learned so much interesting things I wouldn’t have known about if I didn’t go to the tour. Same thing with the food: I tried a lot of food and drinks that I wouldn’t have tried if I did the eating without the guide. Overall a really good tour that I highly recommend!
