What to expect from Vilnius Food Tour

NB! All our Vilnius free walking tours, regular paid Vilnius city tours are temporarily cancelled until further notice due to the national quarantine in Lithuania! Stay healthy and safe. See you soon!

If you think that Lithuanian cuisine consists of only potatoes, meat and sour-cream, then join Vilnius food tour and let us prove you're 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!

During this Lithuanian food tour in Vilnius we will visit 4-5 local places and family-run restaurants in two different districts - Old Town and New Town. Along the way our passionate tour guide will show you the hidden gems and tell some secrets and miracles of Vilnius city.

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

Your Vilnius food tour will be lead by one of our expert, English-speaking guides. They’re all gifted storytellers who are smart, passionate and talented and whose excitement for this country is contagious! So 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.
