We’re the founding fathers of food tours in Porto. First mentioned in passing over a holiday dinner among friends, Taste Porto has grown from its humble beginnings into what it is today.
Featured on Anthony Bourdain, Rick Steves, Sunday Times, The Guardian, Lonely Planet and more, Taste Porto is Porto's longest-running Food Tour company and a leader in showcasing the rich history and culture to thousands of guests who visit our wonderful city every year.
It all started when two Porto natives and one American forged ahead with the business idea that combined their love of Porto with their second love: the cuisine of Porto.
Avid travelers, taste testers, at-home chefs, and cultural explorers, the team realized that what they valued most from their travels was the opportunity to meet locals and see the city through their eyes. And so it was unanimously decided that Taste Porto would do exactly that: allow people to taste the real Porto.
As the first and only tour operator focused solely on gastronomic experiences in Porto, Taste Porto team members are passionate about local gastronomy and strive for each and every guest to fall in love with the city and its food.
At Taste Porto we believe food is a cultural expression. That is why our guided walking tours are about more than just the food, we want to share the history, architecture, culture, and cuisine of our beloved city. So that you can taste the real Porto.
There's nothing like going off the beaten path in Porto. Somewhere away from the crowds that truly feels like yours. Connect with one of our food tour guides and get ready to eat like a local while discovering that side of Porto that tourists rarely see.
We offer an amazing team environment, learning, and foodie adventures. Do you want to join us?
