What's your cancellation policy?Refunds are available with at least 48 hours advanced warning. Refunds are issued via Paypal minus the costs of the transfer itself. Due to our logistics and the arrangements we have with the venues we visit on our tours, we are unable to offer refunds on shorter notice.
Is this a wine-tasting tour?While The Taste Dubrovnik is not a pure wine-tasting tour, wine is delicious and fun, Croatia makes some world class wines and we will enjoy wine tastings too as part of our tour.
What types of food are served on the tour?Delicious foods. Many of the establishments we will be visiting make fresh and different dishes daily, so it is hard to provide an exact list. However, we can guarantee at least some of the following: fine cheeses and wines, olives, fresh baked bread,oysters,black risottos,octopus and more.
Can I book a private tour?Yes, private group tours are available with Taste Dubrovnik. Please contact us and arrange for a private group tour.
We just walk around and eat food?Yes, yes we do. And we love it. But also, throughout the tour, your guide will share Dubrovnik history legends, facts, a bit of culinary insight and fun tales of the food and spaces you taste and see.
Does the tour leader accept gratuities?Gratuities are greatly appreciated, though not mandatory.
Where will we start? Does the tour end at the same place?Once a reservation is made, a map detailing the initial meeting place will be emailed to you. We ask that you arrive there 10 minutes before the scheduled time, to guard against excessive delays. The tour will not end back at the original meeting point. This is why, once the tour has finished, you will be provided with a map detailing the entire tour route so you can find your way back without any trouble.
Are any beverages served on the tour?Yes! Drinks are included on the tour. Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options are available.
Are there vegetarian options on the tour?Yes and no. Taste Dubrovnik visits a variety of establishments, most of which provide vegetarian options. If you are a strict vegetarian, we cannot guarantee that the places we visit are not, for example, cooking with animal fat, though olive oil is far more typical. There are always vegetarian options, but some days there are fewer options than on other days. That said, we have had many vegetarians on our tours in the past and they have said they thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
We do our best to accommodate all food preferences and diets. And, to be honest, Croatia is finally figuring out about good vegetarian food, so the options are just getting better and better.
Mmm... In fact, if you join a tour, we'd be happy to provide you with a few of our favorite vegetarian restaurants around the city!
Is the tour suitable for children?Depends on the age, tour involves lot of walking so we will leave that to you,but please let us know if you would want to bring your child.
What if I have food allergies/dietary restrictions?As the establishments we are visiting are extremely small, we are not able to completely guarantee accommodation for all food allergies. However, please let us know what your restrictions are, as we will do our utmost to provide alternatives where available.
How much walking is involved? Is it a fast-paced tour?The tour lasts approximately 3.5 hours and you can expect to be standing or walking most of the time. We walk at a very relaxed pace between establishments. There will be at least 2 spots to sit during the tour.
How much food is served on the food tour?We have planned the tours so that, at the end of the tour, most guests leave feeling comfortably full.
For most, supper afterwards is not necessary.
If a food tour is sold-out, can I put my name on a waiting list?At this time, waiting lists are not available but please send us preferred dates as we have sometimes cancellation for all sorts of reasons..
