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.

    An great introduction to Porto‘a foods and wines. We would highly recommend it. Our guide Andreia was excellent, knowledgeable, friendly and made the walking tour most memorable. Thank you Andreia!

    We are visiting Porto for our first time and thought a walking food tour would be a great way to get familiar with the area. We were not disappointed. Our tour guide, Teresa was amazing! She was knowledgeable and passionate about Porto and Portugal in general. We ate great food, sampled excellent wines and beer. You will love this tour!

    Very friendly and informative tour with some great food and lovely wine. Really enjoyed visiting places that we never would gone to ourselves to get a bit of an insight into the less touristy side of Porto

    Rain or shine (and we had rain), this is a perfect way to learn and experience a new culture through its food/drink. We loved this tour! Mariana was so knowledgeable and personable and taught us so much about Porto, Portugal, and the foods/drinks that this town is known for. Even our 4 young children (ages 10-6) loved it.

    We had an amazing time! It was just the guide and the two of us (she said the tour runs even if there is only one guest). There were five stops: 1) coffee and cake, 2) bifana and beer, 3) codfish cake and green wine, 4) cheese, bread, meats and port, 5) Port tasting. This tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Portugal and I would definitely recommend it.

    Ok it's a cryptic title I know. We loved the tour and guide we had. Actually this is the second time we have taken this tour because we loved it so much the first time a couple years ago. AND we would take it again. It was also a very pleasant surprise to see that they changed some of the stops to different places to try so this experience was a little different than the first one. The only reason I can't go all the way to a 5 rating is from an admin perspective they are a bit hard to deal with. Email requests and questions don't always get answered, sometimes you have to ask multiple times to get a response, things change (like meeting locations) and you don't get notified so you arrive where you are supposed to be only to find out the guide is at a different location, etc. This technically doesn't have anything to do with the tour, and it could be fixed easily with good oversight. Thus my recommendation is to definitely take this tour, it's very much worth it and the guides have been outstanding, just be very patient and diligent in working with the front office - and follow up regularly so you don't get frustrated.
