Simona was the best guide! She was so passionate about her city, culture, food and wine. We immediately felt like we made a new friend! She gave us so much information on the food and wine of many regions in Slovenia. She also gave history and landmark information as we strolled the beautiful city of Ljubljana. We really enjoyed all the local cuisine we were able to experience. Food and wine truly are the best way to immerse in the culture and history of a city and this was an excellent tour. We highly recommend this tour and request Simona!!

We are people that absolutely love to travel. In every new country and city that we visit, we always do a local food tour as we have found that it is the best way to get to know the culture and history of a new place. We have done too many to count, however, I can say with the utmost certainty that this tour was one of the best, if not the best we have ever done. Simona is an amazing guide..she is funny, personable, informative and a complete joy to be with. We learned so much about the food, the wine, the regions of Slovenia that everything came from as well as the rich history of the country and the beautiful city of Ljubliana. The food we tried was delicious, traditional, and meaningful to this wonderful culture. The community feel of the markets, the sustainability, and the quality of the food as well wonderful local people truly elevated the experience. I really can't say enough about my love for Slovenia! Thank you Simone for the best experience, you are a gem! We will definitely be back to try more of your food and wine recommendations. Please take this tour, you won't regret it! Book it!!

We had a great private food tour with Simona. She did a great job of providing an overview of how you’re eating and drinking around the different regions of Slovenia. She also sprinkled in some history and gave us plenty of ideas for our free day (we’re heading to her favorite wine bar shortly for an apertivo before dinner). The food and wines were all delicious and plentiful but not too much. We’ve done some food tours in other destinations where you wanted to swear off food for a month afterwards. This tour struck the perfect balance. All dishes were delicious but don’t miss the zlikrofi.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our Food Tour Ljubljana includes 7 delicious tastings and 4 Slovenian wines. Among them, Istrian prosciutto and Slovenian cheese, Carnolian sausage, olive and pumpkin oli, dumplings “Idrijski žlikrofi”, a brilliant dessert “Prekmurska gibanica” and other tastings, but we really don’t want to give it all away.

We will be sampling food and wine at different locations along the way, some samples of food offer just a few bites, others a larger portion. Throughout the whole course of Food Tour Ljubljana, you will eat enough food that would equal a single meal.

As we walk from location to location to sample the food and wine, we will take enough breaks for architectural, cultural and historical insights of the city. Since we walk right through the old town, you get to see all the major attractions of Ljubljana.

As we walk through the old town of Ljubljana, we will stop at must-see attractions of our lovely capital and of course make delicious pit-stops for food tastings. Overall, from our starting location at Prešeren square, to our last location at Gornji trg, we will walk for about 650 m / 0.4 miat a leisurely pace. We will be sitting down for tastings at most locations, however, there will be some locations where we will be standing when tasting our delicacies.
