Description

If you think that the Lithuanian cuisine is only  potatoes, meat and sour-cream, then join the Vilnius Food Tour and let us prove you wrong! Throughout history our food traditions have been influenced by many different foreign cuisines & cultures (including Italian, German, Polish, French, Greek, Jewish, Karaites ect.) and we want you to taste the best of it!

While tasting great Lithuanian dishes we will visit 5 local places and family-run restaurants in two different districts - Old Town and New Town. Along the way the passionate tour guide will show you the hidden gems and tell some secrets and miracles of Vilnius.

We will start with local snacks, sweet cheese, smoked, salted, dried meat, gorgeous Lithuanian bread and a lot of traditional stories and legends. We will continue to fill ourselves with soup from the Grand Dukes table and will learn about importance of mushrooms in our cuisine. Followed by the most traditional dish - Cepelinai, alongside local liquors, this tour will will probably leave you full enough that you won’t want to eat again for another week. But you won’t resist local traditional and innovative desserts, beers and snacks served afterwards.

Be sure to come with an appetite and be ready to dive into a full meal to experience the flavors of Vilnius with a very friendly local guide.

We love providing delicious options for those with dietary needs. If you have a dietary requirement or food allergy, please note it when booking.
