Meet the Team

Taste Porto Team

This is André

Our fearless leader, our patrón. He doesn’t usually have an afro but damn, was quarantine long! He likes coffee. He REALLY likes coffee. If you want to get to know him better, check out this interview with André in our foodie blog.

Taste Porto Team

This is Ricardo

He loves Portuguese sausages – no innuendo there. His rants are epic and most of it must be censored. He has a heart of gold which he tries to hide. But he sucks at it. If you want to get to know him better, check out this interview with Ricardo in our foodie blog.

Taste Porto Team

This is Joana

Joana has traveled half the world to transform herself from archaeologist to tour guide. Her love of Porto, its food, and heritage led her to Taste Porto. Her motto is “if you have a problem, put some cheese on it. There’s nothing that won’t get better with cheese.” If you want to get to know her better, check out this interview with Joana in our foodie blog.

Taste Porto Team

This is Miguel

He is our rockstar. Sings in a band and wows guests with his (not so) innocent charms. Secretly, he wishes he could grow a beard. We asked him to talk about the most iconic areas in the city on our youtube channel. Check it out!

Taste Porto Team

This is Sérgio

He is our international man of mystery and our in-house DJ – hence the outfit, which he wears every day. He likes Francesinha a lot and, in this video, he reveals where you can eat the best Francesinha in Porto. 😲 But then again, it all depends on your taste. Check it out!

Taste Porto Team

This is Maria

Sometimes she’s a vegetarian. Sometimes she’s not. She has blue hair and quite a big heart. With her, enjoying the city and its food is not an option… she will make you feel at home the moment you sit down and start Tasting Porto. Have you traveled with Maria before?

Taste Porto Team

This is Greg

He’s extremely sweet, but he also really likes swords and medieval stuff. He’s not weird to the point of actually having a tail but he’s still pretty out there. If you want to get to know him better, check out this interview with Greg in our foodie blog.

Taste Porto Team

This is Rita

She is the smallest and the cutest of the bunch. She drives a moped with googly eyes on it. She is smart, funny, and incredibly kind. If you want to get to know her better, check out this interview with Rita in our foodie blog.

Taste Porto Team

This is Tânia

She is the newest addition to the Taste Porto family (she has no idea what she has gotten herself into). Tânia believes that getting a flight ticket to Porto is the closest any human being can get to the feeling of receiving a letter from Dumbledore.

Taste Porto Team

This is Sandra

She doesn’t usually style her hair has Thor’s but quarantine made everyone go a little nuts. Sandra is our Customer Service Chef. She will be the first one to answer your call or e-mail, solve your question or help you to choose between our delicious Food Tours. If you want to get to know her better, check out this interview with Sandra in our foodie blog.
