Porto was the last trip I took before the world came to a grinding halt. Andre Apolinario, the host of my Taste Porto food tours and as effervescent as the Porto Tonicos I’d been enjoying regularly, delivered the tiny bag with a knowing smile.
The best tours will whet your appetite and teach you about the city you’re in – take them early in your stay so you’ve got time to return to places and areas you like. They’re sociable and easygoing mixers for solo travellers, or those who don’t like talk-heavy historical tours.
Get into the city’s foodie groove on Taste Porto’s three-and-a-half-hour walking tour. Guides take you everywhere from retro-cool conservas (tinned fish) shops to patisseries making traditional conventual sweets.
