Detailed description

More about your experience with us

Borsch is probably the most famous Ukrainian dish of all. And the rule says, that you will find the best Borsch at a mothers or grandmothers house. Well, we won’t make it to that house, but we will show you the best place for Borsch that is not from your mother or grandmother! Get to see how to enjoy the best soup made out of beets and what you should look out for, when searching for the best Borsch.

See how vareniki are made

Apart from Borsch, Vareniki are the essential Ukrainian food. Which filling is the most common, you might ask! But well, we keep some things for the tour and let you even find your personal favorite. And on top of that we show you how to make them by yourself! And what if you have leftovers? Ukrainians got a suggestion to turn them into another delicious meal.

Going to a market to try specialities of the region

And to cook real Ukrainian dishes, of course you will need to know where and what ingredients you need to look for. And of course the local markets of Lviv are a great possibility to let you try some delicious specialities to try from Ukrainian farmers and other producers. We will show you some delicious cheese and try some honey and milk products and great sausages.

Get to know the Ukrainian seasonal calendar

In a country that has a winter with temperatures sometimes below -20 degress Celsius, of course not everything grows all year. That’s why Ukrainian farmers and cooks will know how to make the best out of every season and using special ingredients and foods in certain times of the year. We will teach you all about it and give you the knowledge that we have asked all of our cooks, mothers, grandmothers and aunts, so you can live more healthy throughout the year.

Usvar, kvas, horilka and beer – those drinks are a must

If you still can’t get enough of this, we will show you the best places to have a great local liquor. Anything from a good horilka (Ukrainian vodka) with honey or horse radish to plum brandies, great Crimean wines, Transcarpathian wines and locally brewed Lviv beers.

Read from our guests what they have to say about this tour

My sister and I went on the food tour and it was a great time! Our guide was so kind, fun, and had great knowledge about all different types of Ukrainian food. We went to a market and tried so meat and cheese, tried a few different borscht dishes, got a chance to make and eat our own Varenyky (which I think was my favourite part), Thanks again Lviv Buddy for making it a great time!

Calgary, Canada


On the day of our tour, we received a text who would be our guide and that he would be waiting just outside our Airbnb. This made it so easy! The private tour made it so that we could learn about exactly what interested us. Bohdan has a wealth of knowledge about a vast variety of topics and walked us through a variety of foods and experiences. I can\'t recommend the experience more!

No, it's not, but...

… our guides come to the meeting point anyways. But in case the group is larger than 25 people and we did not know about this before, we will have to prefer people that have a reservation. If you make a reservation we can always organise an extra guide a guarantee a great quality tour for everyone.

And if you are a group of more than 6 people...

… we are very sorry, but we usually won’t permit you to the free tour. But we are happy to offer you some great private tours that can be very inexpensive. Check for example our Private Must See Tour and others for a small fee.
