    Exceptional time on the food and wine tour!
    We had so much fun tasting the local food and wine with Natasa! She was so friendly, professional, and warm. We felt so comfortable right away with her. She took us to some amazing spots, with wonderful food and drinks. She even gave us recommendations for future meals. Hvala, Natasa!

    Amazing evening
    My wife and I had an amazing time on the Fino vino wine tour. Meta was an incredible guide, taking us to three very different but equally wonderful wine bars. It was a wonderful way to learn about Slovenia's history and culture while drinking delicious wine at the same time. We loved one of the wine bars so much, we went back the next night. Highly recommended for anyone who likes wine and is interesting in learning more about this amazing country.

    Nice Tour
    My wife and I took the food tour and enjoyed it. The tour lasted about 3 1/2 hours. The tours are limited to 6 people and we had 5 on ours. Inna was our guide. She did a great job and was very friendly. She told us a lot about Ljubljana as well as the food that we were served. The food represented different regions within Slovenia, resulting in a good overview of Slovenian food. There wasn’t as much variety as I had expected, however. Several courses included wine and/or beer, which was a pleasant surprise. We found the tour to be a very good value and a great way to learn about Slovenia and its food.

    Vibrant and funny
    Lubiana is so easy to discover, but as introductory tip the food tour is a hit. Lovely guide, nice places visited, excellent tastes and not poor, on the contrary more than a dinner in 6 stops, icecream included. I personally support this tour being a wonderful way to start discovering a lovely, romantic, absorbing, vibrant, full of life cute little capital. I loved the walk, the stops, the way our guide explained all about city and tour, and at the end I could not go to dinner 'cause I ate in different steps a lot of great food. It is a must once you are in the city! Enjoy it, Massimo (Italy)

    Craftbeer Extravaganza - a special experience
    Our craft beer tour was great! Our guide was Tjasa and she introduced us to the Slovenian craft beer scene - talking about the history of the craft beer revolutions, and about the different breweries and types of beers that are popular in the country right now. We participated at the program with my boyfriend, and we are quite big fans of craft beer and are familiar with the different types of beers but we still recieved a lot of new information, tasted great beers and got really good recommendations on what to try and what places we should try - besides of course the great places that we visited during teh tour. Our guide was really well prepared and had great knowledge on the subject, we are glad that we went to the program! :)

    Great experience, learn about local food and drinks
    We had a great experience doing the craft beer walking tour. Iva was very enthusiast and had many knowledge about the city, the history and the local companies. We visited three different places to drink some nice local beers in different styles and taste some nice small dishes. A must do if you want have more information of nice places to drink and eat and to learn something about the city.

    some intersting beers includig one on a hand pull
    We met Iva who took us to 2 pubs and an excellent bottle shop just before new year. Iva's beer knowledge of the breweries and people of the Slovenian beer scene was facinating and we especially enjoyed the cask beer in the Sir William pub brewed by some Russians in their small brewery just north of Ljubliana. The bottle shop had a wide and interesting local selection, some to take home and it was nice to meet such enthusiasts. Fun to get a certificate at the end. Not a cheap tour but you get a great feel about the city with a local

    Amazing beer and food guide!
    Ljubljanajam is SO worth the investment. First of all - the guide (Iva) is amazing both as a local guide in the city, but also in terms of knowing the right spots to go. We had so much fun wandering around in the lovely city of Ljubljana and would recommend everyone planning a visit to this gorgeous city to link up with the girls from Ljubljanajam!

    What a remarkable tour
    Alenka was our outstanding tour guide. She was incredibly knowledgeable of the local food scene, tying her appreciation of gourmet delights with family stories and regional history. We learned so much! Each restaurant staff offered fast, professional service, with a relaxed pace that offered opportunity for conversation with our foodie host. My children are better described as “in their thirties, but our host seemed eager to and adept at tailoring each conversation for each person. Wow- do we have much to explore in Ljubljana!

    Great beer, and an informative tour of Ljubljana
    My partner and I had an excellent afternoon with Tjasa on the craft beer tour. She told us a lot about Ljubljana and its history, as well as the Slovenian craft beer scene. The beers we tried were tailored to styles that we like, and beers we hadn't tried before, which made it really interesting. We liked one of the bars we visited so much, we stayed on for dinner, and had a really nice evening.

    Wonderful Tour
    Had an insightful food tour with Meta. She brought us to discover culinary gems we had passed earlier on walks of our own. Am sure to revisit most of the places we were brought to. Ljubljana is experiencing a food revolution. Nice to be here where it's at.

    Small group food tour Ljubljana
    This was a very fun and gastronomically satisfying tour. Our guide Iva was extremely knowledgeable and tolerant with our group. The choices for tastings exhibited flavors from all aspects of Slovenian cuisine and the portions were at times huge, leaving us “stuffed to the gills!” Our group consisted of my husband and me who are in our 60s and a young couple with their 2 and 5y/o children. The couple was very interesting and good with their children, however we would have preferred the tour to not have small children...especially towards the end when the kids were very tired. All in all it was an excellent day and I would highly recommend this tour.

This was a great way to spend our first morning in Ljubljana; getting to know the food and some hsitory of the city and country. Iva was a great guide - friendly, professional, enthusiastic and knowlegable! We visited some really interesting places and sampled some excellent food and drink. There was a mixture of "new" and traditional foods which we would never have sampled without her help. If you book this - go hungry as there was lots of samples. It was a really good way to be introduced to a new place. From start to finish the communication from the team was exceptional, with some added bonuses e.g. the e-guide. I would highly recommend this tour.

A great tour by Inka!  Well organized and great communication through the booking process.

We started off on a high note by heading to a Michelin-noted restaurant for delicious beef tataki and a tasting glass of Slovenian riesling.  Both the dish and the wine were the best food and drink I had in Slovenia.

We then headed to a pub-like restaurant for a sample of Slovenian craft beers and an empanada to accompany it. 

The next stop was a patio by the market, where we tried several kinds of Slovenian style pastas. The linguini with truffles was delicious.

Next we went to a restaurant for some traditional barley stew and Carniolan sausage, accompanied with a traditionsl Slovenian wine.  The tasting was preceded by a traditional buckwheat/walnut sweet štruklji (rolled dumplings). 

The tour ended with some gelato. While the gelato was delicious, I would have loved if this stop was replaced by a place for a traditional Slovenian dessert.  We have heard so much about the famous Slovenian struklji that it would have been a nice touch to sample one more kind.

This was a great tour and I would recommmend.  The courses at each stop were mostly tasting size, so you could try everything. As compared to other food tours I've taken in other places, my only suggestion is that it would also have been great if the guide could have drawn some connections between the food and Slovenia's history (eg impact of socialist era on operation of farms and local produce) or could have pointed out noteworthy monuments/sights as we walked by them.  While the tour was a great tour for the food (delicious and varied), some of the other food tours we have been on have been richer experiences for the guides having built in some historical or sightseeing references.

All in all, this was a great tour and I would recommmend.  The foodie scene is Ljubljana is amazing!

These tours are all booked up and there is good reason for that! A professional, convivial, and delicious tour from start to finish. The afternoon of eating and learning started at 4:30p with prompt arrival of our lovely and fearless guide, Tjasa. She was keen to share not only her knowledge of local food and traditions but also local events and her pride in her city was notable. I was also pleased that she didn't lead us around like a "tour group" so we looked more like a group of friends walking about than a guided tour.
Our "progressive dinner" was more than enough for food to provide a full meal, even though we'd been "saving room" all day. We wouldn’t change a thing- every stop was special for a reason, even if we did have some favorites. We could tell that it has been very well thought out to touch on modern fine dining with local ingredients, traditional dishes and beverages, locally produced cheeses/charcuterie/liquors, lovingly prepared classic crowd pleasers with an updated feel, and fun new food trends in the city. Our vegetarian family member had ample options/adjustments that were non-inferior.
Our thanks to our guide Tjasa (boots on the ground) and Meta (in the office communicating and organizing so efficiently) for accommodating us on a busy and hot week. I just want to note that a tour was not originally available on our date, (and I was hopelessly disappointed) but I emailed to inquire anyway, and as it turned out, Meta was able to make it work. I imagine that can't always happen, but we certainly appreciated the extra effort and accommodation. Ljubljanajam has a golden reputation for a reason. It was such a lovely way to finish our time in Slovenia- and one that we are still talking about as we unload our luggage and share stories with friends and family.

Our Ljubljana food tour has been the highlight of our Slovenian vacation. We had a big family group (ages 5 to 76), including a vegetarian and a person in a wheelchair. LjubljanaNjam and Meta were so wonderful and thoughtful to work with in ensuring that there was something enjoyable for everyone at every stop and they went above and beyond to make sure we could get to and from as well as in and out all of the locations with a wheelchair. They even helped locate a parking garage with an elevator and accessible bathrooms throughout the city. On top of all of that, the food was all wonderful (a great sampling of different regional cuisines from across the country, plus a good mix of fancy and rustic) and our guide Alenka was so knowledgeable and warm and fun to spend an evening with. I can’t recommend this tour enough!!

My wife and I and another couple visited Ljubljana as part of my search for my Slovenian roots. Meta greeted me with a big "Welcome Home" and a hug. It turns out Meta is from a town nearby to my grandparents' birthplace. Not only did she expose us to delicious, creative and unique Slovenian cuisine on our tour, but she shared a rich knowledge of Slovenian culture and history. After our tour, on her own initiative, Meta took time to reach out to her father and through him, to connect me to a local person who could aid in my research. Our group of 4 had a yummy and enjoyable evening, and I truly felt welcomed home!

My husband and I have discovered that food tours provide a great introduction to a city as they combine eating (and sitting down!) and an introduction to local landmarks. We booked our tour last-minute, and as it turned out we were the only ones on it which suited us well as we don't walk quickly, and of course had the full attention of our guide. Meta was an excellent guide not only to food and wine but also to the city and culture. Restaurant choices were a nice mix of new and trendy and older and traditional. Given our short time in Ljubljana, the tour was the perfect way to sample a variety of foods from appetizers to dessert. I highly recommend this company!

We (family of 5 with children in the age range of 18-10) spent a wonderful evening dining and chatting with Meta. She was a friendly and knowledgeable guide ready to answer any question we could have about Ljubljana and the food we were getting. The food was varied and plenty and the way she explained everything made you want to actually get to know the country by tasting what it has to offer. Despite having somewhat picky eaters in the family, the tour accommodated all our needs and was loved and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone in the family!

We had the best few hours of our trip. The types of different places we were taken too gradually built up a picture of food from around Slovenia. We had asked for lots of information about this amazing city and food culture and we were told so much! All of the food and drink at the different places were amazing and often places which we would never have found as a tourist. Our guide was so friendly and actually made the whole tour amazing and knew not only the food, but the owners stories of the places we visited. If you are planning on coming to Ljubljana then I would really recommend this tour.

I did the Ljubljana Essentials tour with Inka and had a wonderful experience. We tried a wide range of food and drink at the five stops on the tour, and Inka was very informative about what we were eating and drinking. Everything was delicious. I went back to two of the places late in my trip - highly recommend doing this tour early in your stay in Ljubljana.
