Know More about this tour

After meeting your guide near Gomes Teixeira Square in Porto, stroll around the city to learn about its gastronomic heritage. The best place to sample Portugals traditional cuisine is, of course, in Porto, and your guide will introduce you to all the locals favorite places.
Start with a traditional Portuguese breakfast of coffee and nata in a spot near the busy commercial area.

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.

  • Really good, very informative and good fun.

  • This was an incredible tour which took you to some amazing local places. You are fed very well and the wine along the way is more than generous. Our tour guide was so wonderful and she really made the day very special. We would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Porto. Thank you!!

  • Great value for money Renato our guide was informative, knowledgeable and entertaining we look back at the tour as one of our highlights of our visit to Porto.

  • This is an excellent tour if you like to go off the beaten path. See where locals eat and find small hole-in-the-wall places where the food and wine is wonderful. Be prepared to start drinking Port at around 11am, after coffee and pastries, of course! Rinato was very knowledgeable and fun to have as a guide! Highly recommended!

  • This is a really interesting way to get to know the city of Porto. Our tour guide was Sid and he was very knowledgeable and friendly. We got to see some very interesting places and got to know our small group of travellers reasonably well by the end of the day.
    Some of the foods weren't to everyone's tastes. Sacrilegiously and rather controversially our group didn't like the city's trademark Francesinha sandwich. I guess that's the beauty of a tour like this , you get to sample a little bit of everything and then go back again and sample again and again the things you like the best.

  • The tour guide was as sweet as could be but did not give or seem to have much information that I think should be supplied on a food tour like origin of the dishes, why they were created,, for how long its been popular. The guide also should keep the group, all the group, involved in conversations about the food.

  • This was a fantastic tour. Great group and great guide. Enjoyed every stop. Highly recommend especially if you love food and wine as much as we do! The guide even sent us a great list of recommendations for after the tour.

  • Wow. We thank Sara for the tour and the follow up e-mail with all the information. The food and drink was amazing. Sara was very knowledgeable and engaging. Each place she took us was fabulous. There was certainly no need for dinner that night! The group was small and everyone was great. Thank you. We highly recommend this tour!

  • This trip was better than expected. From start to finish a most enjoyable experience. Sid our guide was informative and entertaining. Accompanied by two delightful couples we toured the food spots of Porto that only an insider would know about. There was lots to eat , plenty of excellent port wine and cold beer accompanied by lots of laughter. A very pleasant way to spend time in Porto and highly recommended.

  • Renato was an excellent guide, he took us to some amazing places where we could 'taste porto', his knowledge was excellent both with the food and the locations, added to which he was informative on the history of the area. This is a tour I would do again, it was incredible value.
