What else you can expect?
Our Downtown Food Tour is the oldest food tour in the city, so you can expect to take the journey with the experts in the food scene of Porto. From our humble beginning over 7 years ago we have grown to be recognized and praised by Anthony Bourdain, Lonely Planet, Rick Steves and many more passionate foodies.
Starting either at 10:45 am or 4 pm, on the span of 3 and half hours, you will enjoy a wonderfully personal experience where we will tread off the beaten path and visit 7 unique tasting locations to eat & drink like a local. We have hand-picked all the tasting locations and offer your taste buds a perfect balance of sweet and savory.
“On our tour, I tasted Flor dos Congregados’ pork loin and cured ham sandwich and a glass of sparkling red wine! Both the pork and ham were delicious, but my favorite part of the sandwich was the bread, which was soaked in the sauce from the pork and ham. ” writes Fleming on wareontheglobe
Wait! There is more to that!
On our food tours, you will also get to know and meet the local people behind each of the restaurants, cafes, and specialty food shops visited.
“…We met Hugo, the owner of the Bolhão Wine House, who served traditional sardines in olive oil with a glass of Moscatel, a sweet fortified wine. After that, we enjoyed a tasty homemade pastry called a queijadinha. […] While we were there, we chatted with Hugo about his concerns about the city’s plans for the market. You know, like the locals do.” writes Cindy Baker @ Travel Bliss Now.
Experience with us is so much more than tasting our delicious local food.
