Know More about this tour

After meeting your guide near the Bolhao market in Porto, stroll around the city to learn about its gastronomic heritage. The best place to sample Portugal's traditional cuisine is, of course, in Porto, and your guide will introduce you to all the local's favorite places.

- Start with a traditional Portuguese sweet, the nata, in a spot near the busy commercial area. From there, head to Bolhao Market - a colorful open-air arcade that sells a variety of food items.

- Breathe in the aroma of freshly baked bread, and browse stalls selling artistically arranged cheeses and glistening mounds of fruit.

- Continue to a shop that has specialized in cheese and smoked ham for more than 100 years, and then try a classic bifana (pork sandwich) with a beer.

- In one of the oldest nearby tavern, sample the classic "bolinhos de bacalhau" along with a shot of a little-known liquor.

Learn about Portugal's Port wine as you visit a specialist wine bar that has more than 230 different offerings. To finish your tour on a high note, visit a generations-old traditional tavern to sample some of Porto's delicious tapas treats. Your tour will then end near Aliados Avenue.

    Each stop introduced to a traditional local specialty in settings we never would have discovered on our own . We were not drinkers and even that part of the tour we savored. Marlene was delightful

    We were delayed in Lisbon for 12 hours. 2 flights canceled. Took a bus arrived in Porto 10:30 pm! Is it possible to get a refund:(

    What a nice surprise! Our guide, Eduarda Oliveira, was engaging, knowledgeable, and friendly throughout the easy walk during our 3-hour wine tour. Some of the highlights (outside of the wine/port/beer of course) were the pumpkin jam from Queijaria Amarel and the piri piri sauce from Confeitaria Imperio. I definitely recommend this tour for those who are limited on time and want to stay in the city without an all day commitment. Thank you, Eduarda, for a wonderful experience!!

    İ have been to tasting tours in many countries. This was bad from the word go the place we spent nearly 30 mins to introduce ourselves… i didnt join the tour to meet up with people or better my English! We have waited for average pastel de nata to arrive with bad coffee then went to a really bad and dirty cafe for more tasteless dishe and i left… it wasnt going to get better it was obvious. İ did my own tour from then on in Porto amd goind better places.

    Great food, great atmosphere. A great way to start to get to know Porto and Porto's food scene. Highly recommend

  • 01-Nov-2022

    This was an absolutely fantastic tour and one of the highlights of our holiday in Porto. The food stops were all small enterprises with very friendly owners and staff and gorgeous food and drink. The port tasting was fantastic and the lady there was so knowledgeable on port and how it is produced. Our guide, Fatima was superb. She was friendly, very knowledgeable and good fun - just what you need in a guide for this type of tour. She knew her Porto history and the local food and gave us loads of recommendations on places to eat. A huge asset to her company. I'd highly recommend this tour.

    Our private tour guide, Andreia, was outstanding and very nice! Her company, and knowledge of the city and culture, were the highlight of the tour. However, for the price we paid, the food and wine we were offered and the places we visited were marginal and not impressive.

    Fatima was a wonderful tour guide. She was friendly, very knowledgable, and very caring that her group had a good time. The food and wine locations we visited were delicious and just plain fun to visit. We would not have found these on our own. Kudos to Fatima!
