About
We will take you for a pleasant short walk from venue to venue to explore tastes, culture and history of Serbia and Belgrade. Our main goal is to visit authentic places, mingle with locals and talk about how life in Belgrade is today and how it came to be. Additionally, we will tell you about some of the main sights of Belgrade, which will be seen during the tour. We will season every bite with facts as well as stories dear to Serbian hearts. In order to experience the full flavor of Serbian lifestyle and heritage we invite you to be our guests at places that will surely make you feel like you are in a Serbian home. We believe that the best way to learn is by doing! You will participate in customs related to eating. After our tour you will know when and how to drink rakija, how to order a song from a band in a kafana*, how to write in Cyrillic, what to bring as a present to a Serbian slava** and much more.

Marina was a wonderful tour guide. Not only did I learn a lot about Belgrade's food and restaurant scene, but she was a fantastic source of information for all things Serbia. She very patiently and enthusiastically answered all of my questions about Serbian history, architecture, current events, culture, etc. After doing this on my first day in Belgrade, I didn't need to take a general walking tour of the city. I also highly recommend the tour that ends in Zemun as it's a lovely part of the city to see. She did a good job of mixing traditional food with new and upcoming city favorites as well.

She was also very COVID conscious which was greatly appreciated.

It's my first time in Serbia and traveling solo on this leg of my holiday. I knew I wanted to try the food so I signed up for the Bigger Plate tour. Turns out I was the only client that day so I had Marko the tour guide all to myself. Marko is hands down the most passionate, informative, and friendly guide any visitor could ask for. What was meant to be a 3-4 hour tour of Belgrade stretched out to 8 hours. And I couldn't be more grateful! It was an amazing day of food, culture of course, lots of laughs, of personal stories of hardship and shared triumphs, of survival and of LIFE in general. He was very generous in sharing his personal knowledge of growing up in this city. In marko I met a wonderful local and a friend. My expectations were easily met and surpassed. Bravo! And oh yes the food was superb😊.

Our dear friend, Wow! I wish I was a traveler and could meet Belgrade in the way you did! We are so happy you had that special connection with Marko (and with food) and we hope you will remember Belgrade with joy in your heart for years to come. I am sure this is not your last visit here ;) The main goal of starting our tours was to share the life and passion that we have here in Serbia with those who were appreciate it and are willing to exchange both opinions and emotions. Your comment showed us that the people who share our vision choose our tour, but also important- that Marko- our first guide was a perfect match for our vision. That makes us very happy! Also it just infected me with travel bug and wish for a true connection with someone from other amazing cultural background! Keep on discovering! With love, Ana and rest of Food and Culture tour in Belgrade

I had a wonderful experience on this exclusive tour (there was only one other participant on the tour with me) from the very friendly tour guide. We learned about Serbian culture, what daily life is currently like in Belgrade, and of course, about some of the famous Serbian dishes. We never felt rushed and truly felt welcome the entire time. This is a MUST experience for those who want to truly experience Belgrade.

I had basically zero expectations when I booked a trip for my father and I to go to Belgrade. I was poking around on Trip Advisor and saw these food and culture tours. I have always thought learning about a culture's food is a GREAT way to learn about the culture overall, and this tour did exactly that.

Over the course of three days we actually ended up booking THREE of their tours (Serbia on a Bigger Plate, Communism Tour, Street Food tour) and we loved EVERY-SINGLE-MINUTE of our time with these outstanding women and tour guides. All three of our guides spoke essentially native English. They were insanely well-educated and knowledgeable about Serbia, Belgrade, and the entire region. We learned so much about Serbia and Belgrade and we would have learned ZERO about the culture had it not been for these tours.

I have traveled all over the world and I am not exaggerating when I say this is hands-down one of the best tour companies and tours I have ever experienced. If you are looking for good stories, great food, lots of history and culture, and an opportunity to walk all over Belgrade like a local, THIS is your tour.

As a bonus note, this a tour company run by some amazing local women, not some giant tour company with an HQ somewhere else. If you want to support local Belgrade folks who just want to share their language, culture and food with visitors, this is the perfect tour to book!

Maja was a fantastic tour guide!!! She was full of local knowledge and very friendly, warm and welcoming! I asked a ton of questions about the Serbian culture and she answered every one with a smile. We did the 4 hr tour and had plenty of food and drinks. My favorites were the morning coffee and the small local Rekija shop. :) It was great to meet local store owners and see places you probably wouldn’t look twice at as a tourist. Highly recommend this tour!

We had a great time exploring the city with our guide and trying lots of local cuisine. From the new concept ice cream shop to traditional grill, everything was delicious. Our guide also provided great recommendations for the rest of our time in Belgrade and a lot of information about the culture and life in the city. Highly recommend!

Dear Friends, Belgrade is like that, a bit traditional a bit new and changing. We love that you could see and recognize all the flavors and angles of this city. It is so amazing that we get to meet our guests on a very personal level, and have a lot of time together in such a small group. That allows us to give you recommendations that will serve you the best, since Belgrade has sooo much to offer. Much love from Food and Culture team and Belgrade itself!

Maja was our day who we got to spend a very pleasant few hours with while we sampled and ate a lot of interesting local food. Talking with her was part of the fun, to spend time with a local and learn a bit about life in Belgrade.
The highlight was the ice cream place called Black Sheep - after the tour we went back every day at least once!

At the end of April I visited Belgrad with a friend of mine. We are from Romania and we were absolutely delighted by this amazing city. As we had very little time to visit we decided to go on a tour that had both food and culture. Best choice ever. Marko was our guide and we were his’:) We have encountered so many food and culture similarities between these two neighbor countries we were amazed.
The food was more than enough, the stories were very interesting and we could easily notice Marko’s passion about what he was doing. It resulted in a private tour so we had all his attention. He answered all out questions and requests.
I recommend this tour!!!
Thanks you very much for everything!

Dear Raluca, it is so great to hear about your experience! It delights us to know that even our neighbors with whom we share many similarities find so much joy and diversity at our tour. We are so glad that you went for bigger plate since it really fits everything and gives Marko enough time to share alll of his passion. Thank you for your kind words and I hope now that you discovered the magic of Belgrade we will see you much more often. Sometimes some of the best things are so close by ;) Much love from your geographical and flavor neighbors, FandC team

I found this on the internet when searching for things to do in Belgrade and thought it sounded like a lot of fun, which it turned out to be!!! We were just 4 in our Group, us and Another couple, so there was a lot of discussion about serbia and its Cultures, people, etc. Got to try some really great food and of course we got to dry the local drink, all different tastes and lots of laughing was done by all. Well Worth the the Money, would certainly recommend it and maybe even do it again next time we are in Belgrade!

The food and culture tour guided by Maria was excellent. You could tell Maria was passionate about Belgrade's culture and she shared her knowledge about the history and culture expertly. The cafes and restos chosen provided a nice variety. I was able to experience all sorts of Serbian food from an authentic Cafe experience(which included an awesome coffee tasseography!) to an incredible local ice cream shop which blew my mind. I'd certainly recommend this tour to anyone exploring Belgrade for the first time.

Dear Brandon, Thank you a lot for sharing your great experience! Past few months we have been expanding our food and culture team, and it is such a delight to hear that you share our opinion that Marija is excellent! It is like the tour was made for her to guide, or she was born to guide this tour. :) We hope great memories of Belgrade and knowledge of tasseography will stay with you for a long time!
