Nebotičnik, 1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia
Your small group tasting tour kicks off in downtown Ljubljana in front of the tourist information center. Meet your expert guide, who will serve as your culinary docent for the day, and your fellow diners, then set off for your first course. This often-overlooked country will surprise you with its diverse—and delicious—traditional specialties. Expect plenty of sausages, cured meats, local vegetables and burek (meat wrapped in a flaky phyllo dough).

Admire the Baroque-era and art deco architecture designed by Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik, as well as the charming cobblestone streets, as you walk from restaurant to street food stand and cafe. Listen as your guide explains how the dishes are made and mingle with the local restaurant staff. Sip four Slovenian wines for a true local dining experience.

As the tour comes to an end, you’ll be satiated and inspired, having sampled nine dishes total and ambled through the beautiful streets. As you bid farewell to your guide, continue exploring Ljubljana on your own.

Great night enjoying a very friendly food and wine experience
, Jan 2022
Jasmine Was very knowledgeable in our family enjoy this tour very much. Due to Covid we were by ourselves and Jasmine made it very personable and just a very good time. We got to experience lots of foods we have never had before and most of which we enjoyed. Enjoyed the Slovenia wines and Learned about the wine regions was my favorite. The desert of course was the favorite of my sons. I would definitely recommend this to those wanting to learn and enjoy.
Great tour
, Dec 2021
Good variety of food and wine with interesting background provided by Jasmine. Got a good overview of the city and its history as well as local landmarks. An excellent introduction to the country.
Getting stood up by your tour operator
, Dec 2021
After waiting at the designated meet point for about 10 minutes, i got help from the tourist desk. She contacted the operator and, after about another 30minutes of waiting, i learned that the tour operator had cancelled my tour, but never bothered to contact to me. It was too late to schedule anything else, since they had completely left me hanging by their lack of communication. I wasn't able to get any traditional Slovenian food or do any wine tastings.

Dear Sheri, We are very sorry for this situation and that you were not able to get any traditional food. Honestly, this was our mistake. We somehow forgot to cancel the tour officially and notify you. We are truly sorry for this mistake that has never happened before. We wish we could do something to correct it. Hopefully you understand, Best regards, Roundabout team
Good way to kill some time
, Oct 2021
The guide attempted to blend history with the restaurant stops, but it was awkward & stifled the group’s chemistry. The history was uninteresting and repetitive if you took the history tour of the city. Better explanation of WHY the food we were eating was singled out as significant. For example, a pink looking gravy was a turnip soup. Nobody in the group spit it out but it was not our favorite. The guide appeared surprised/upset that we didn’t love it more. Wine was good at every stop.

Thank you for taking the time for reviewing us, we appreciate your feedback. The point of our food tour is to present the connection between the history of Slovenes and the food we eat today. I'm sorry if you have found our tour repetitive but after participating on a city tour that is to be expected. Our food tour is designed as a city walking and sightseeing tour as in the product’s description: “Between bites, learn about Ljubljana’s fascinating architectural and cultural history.« So far, we have only had positive comments for this feature, as not all food tours have sightseeing incorporated. The second part of your review will be discussed on our next meeting because our standard protocol when presenting restaurants and dishes is always to explain where the food comes from and what is its significance. We will investigate why this hasn’t been the case on your tour. As we can’t see the tour date we would appreciate if you could inform us about this somehow to Regarding the turnip soup we share ancient Romans opinion, “De gustibus non est disputandum”, or “Of tastes there should be no dispute”. :) We have also had people on the tour who said turnip soup was the highlight of the tour. But just in case, we’ll do a quality check on the soup, and while we’re there we’ll verify your claim on the wines too! :)
The best way to discover Ljubljana
, Oct 2021
Fantastic introduction to Ljubljana thanks to our guide, Masha, who has been the best and kindest ever. Highly recommended.
Excellent value for money!
, Sep 2021
There were only two of us on the tour, so it was more like a private tour, which was wonderful. Our guide Masha (sp?) was great, and overall the tour was excellent value for money. Would absolutely recommend to anyone visiting Ljubljana!
Lovin' Ljubljana
, Sep 2021
Ina, our guide was terrific. Learned that Ljubljana derived its name from "ljubav", which means love. Food was great. Downtown, where we met, is car-free. Makes for a great walking tour experience.

It was a nice walk through the old old town. The history was interesting. Choices of restaurants could have been more interesting. Slovenian food is definitely more interesting then the tour shows.

Dear Tracy, Thank you for joining our tour and reviewing us, we truly appreciate your input. After discussing your review and the tour with our guide and reviewing the selection of restaurants and dishes my conclusion is that your review is a bit unjustified. Our guests are able to taste (note: descriptive names in order to protect tour content) a protected sausage, protected air-cured meat products with local cheese, special vegetable oil, a protected pasta, sea-food plate with an ample fleet of 4 wine samples. We cover 5-6 biggest regions and the most recognizable dishes from each of these. That is of course a fraction of over 365 distinctive traditional dishes scattered across 24 gastronomical and 3 wine-growing regions that Slovenia has to offer. In order to give our guests the best overview of national gastronomy, we have crafted a product that presents the essence and diversity of Slovene cuisine at a very attractive price point. Reviews on all major platforms confirm we’re working in the right direction and so does comparison with similar products in neighboring countries. Maybe you got this feeling because you have rejected several food samples or maybe they were not as per your taste or maybe you were familiar with some of them since you have traveled to Slovenia before, as you have mentioned to the guide. We of course respect that individual’s tastes and do not judge anyone that does not like provided food samples, however, we cannot accept this as a fault of our product or services. Again, thank you for your input and if you come back, do check our website, we have a one-of-a-kind food tour in development you might like! 😊 all the best!
