Description

Taste is one of the five senses, so it’s no wonder that trying traditional foods is one of the best ways to discover a new place and its culture.

Throughout history, Lithuanian food traditions have been influenced by many foreign cultures and cuisines: Italian, German, Polish, French, Greek, Jewish, Karaite… We want you to taste the best of it!

During the tour, you’ll learn how Lithuanian cuisine has changed over the years: find out what the first disposable plates were made from, get to know the different food habits of the rich and poor, get an insight into the life of a local vegetarian before WWII, and hear about the culinary traditions of today.

We’ll visit 4–5 local places to taste some great Lithuanian dishes, so come with an appetite and be ready to dive into a full meal!

Please note that booking is required at least 24 hours in advance.

Great experience
Me and my sister did the ghost tour on Halloween and really enjoyed it. Despite the cold, Samuelis did a great job and kept the group entertained with a lot of humor and scary stories. We especially liked the fact that he involved the group members and even passersby. We would definitely recommend the tour as you can see a lot of historic sceneries of Vilnius as well.
A definite local perspective
Enjoyed the tour seeing aspects of Vilnius we would never had seen had we been walking around ourselves with a map.

Our guide had a wonderful personality and threw in just enough history without making it boring.
Fun & Odd stories
We were 5 friends expending 3 days of holidays in Vilnius. We tried to make the most of every day there, and we didn't regret going to this tour!
We had lots of fun and discovered really interesting things about the people, buildings and history of Vilnius.

So our advice will be... Come on! You won't regret it!
