Full description
Discover the hidden treasures of Vilnius on a half-day food tasting tour, and marvel at its distinctive architecture and cultural richness while sampling local food and drinks. Despite the scars of the Soviet era, Lithuania (the oldest of the Baltic states) boasts deep culinary traditions. The country is well-known for its simple yet delicious dishes. Begin your walking tour in the baroque and gothic masterpiece of Vilnius Old Town. Wander the narrow streets of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, and consider its resemblance to Rome, Jerusalem, and Athens. From the grandeur of Cathedral Square, discover some Lithuanian culinary delights, learning the fascinating history of Vilnius along the way. Stop for at least 5 different food and drinks tastings, including acorn coffee, and cold pink soup. Travel from shop to deli, from café to bar, and get a taste of Lithuania’s contribution to international cuisine. Although the stews are to-die-for, take note of the abundance of specialty meats and poultry hunted in Lithuania’s forests. After celebrating the culinary traditions of medieval to modern Vilnius, ask your guide for advice on other authentic bites and sites not to be missed as you will surely be hungry for more!

I did the tour with my husband. Our young hostess was extremely nice and committed and presented us with lovingly put together, partly self-made, food and drinks. In perfect summer weather, she introduced us to Vilnius and the Lithuanian customs and cuisine and explained some sights. We exchanged pleasantly about our countries and customs.

Nice

we got a very knowledgeable guide (Leva). she made sure we had a great evening. Would highly recommend such a trip. We usually take a guided tour when we are on a city break. This one was good. Normally we tend to be very full after such a trip, but this time there was not much food. Therefore no reason to skip lunch.

Yummy, interesting, great time ... all was perfect. I took this tour as an afternoon tour following the Soviet tour with the same company: Urban Adventures. To my luck, the same tour guide, Vilija guided me with this tour. She makes sure you are happy with every step on this tour. Vilija also modified the food on the list according to my specific diet requirements and still gave me a real local experience. I tried food i will never know on my own without her help. From black bread, to Gira (bread beer), herrings, and a yummy red beet soap and much more. All tasted great. Vilija did even take me to my next destination which i was going to do on my own. She didn’t want me to go on my own as i had short time left to arrive there. She left me only after she made sure i was in the taxi cab. I highly recommend this tour, tour company (Urban Adventures) and Vilija. Thanks Vilija for making my stay in Lithuania enjoyable.
