Know More about this tourMeet your guide and join him to learn more about the city's flavors. First you'll have the opportunity to meet one of the most emblematic markets of Oporto: The Bolhão Market, aimed for fresh products, mainly food. With four main entrances, its construction is characterized by its monumentality, typical of neoclassical architecture. Lose yourself in the aromas, colors and sound so typical of this city market.
A little further up, we present the renowned Café Majestic, revivalist style of French inspiration, an icon in the city. More than a cafe, Majestic tells the story of Porto in the twentieth century and it was home for political gatherings and debate of ideas. This was the "Belle Epoque" Porto of writers and artists.
The S. Bento train station, Ribeira and the English Feitoria will be other passing sites where you can learn more about the city's history and how it mainly became a market town where Port Wine was a major contributor to its growth.
Further down, taste some unique Portuguese jams, also in a commented tasting. Try a unique flavor experience of fruit jams in tubes.
Heading towards the other shore, did you know that Vila Nova de Gaia is the place with the highest concentration of alcohol per square metre in the world? The world famous port wine is produced exclusively from grapes from the region adjacent to the Douro and, even though it is produced with Douro grapes and stored in the cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia, it ended up being known as "Port Wine", so you are in just the right place to drink this néctar. Here you will have the opportunity to taste a few Port's on a commented tasting in a place and brand of excellency.
After the 3h00 tour walking around Porto, we end the tour in a beautiful, tipycal and local tavern with authentic flavors to sample, where you can enjoy this delicious plate in your own privacy!
