Reviews

The Downtown Tour was a great intro to Porto and Miguel was our friendly passionate guide. We enjoyed the morning tasting our way around streets to foodie places we would never have found without him. Miguel knows everyone and it made the tour more of personal experience to meet up with his food partners and share their stories. All the food was delicious. The tour was well-paced and we learned so much more from our own guide rather than a travel book.

A great way to become familiar with the Porto food and wine scene. There was some very good food, wine/port samples and the portions were generous. The highlight for me was discussing Anthony Bourdain with the company’s founder (who appeared on Anthony Bourdain’s Porto episode).
James, Australia
Excellent choice of stops along with colorful commentary. The city tour was an unexpected bonus.
