List of measures to keep you safe

  • Before each tour, your tour guide will proceed to a safe and health briefing with all the information on how to comply with basic infection prevention and control precautions

  • Since the new regulations were set into place (December 1st), it is required to present an EU vaccination certificate OR non-EU proof of vaccination OR a negative antigen test when accessing restaurants, tourist establishments, and local accommodations

  • According to the DGS (Portuguese CDC), masks are mandatory indoors (you will have to put your mask on when entering the tasting locations and walking around inside) and they are recommended outside (you may or not use your mask when walking on the street)

  • No physical contact with guests (hand-shakes, kisses, or hugs), which includes a safety distance of 1 meter when possible; even though we are a nation that loves hugs, kisses, and handshakes, we’ll have to keep a safe distance this time

  • Disinfection of all guests’ hands with alcoholic gel before entering the restaurants and after a meal - feel free to bring your own hand sanitizer, but please notice that all restaurants will be able to offer you this

Trip Itinerary

Stop #1 – Mercearia do Bolhão

Vintage at its best, you will start the experience with tasting cured neck ham paired with cheese and quince jam.

Stop #2 – Bolhão Wine House

As a meal or as a snack. Can't beat our Portuguese canned sardines. Perfectly paired with a few glasses of wine from the Vinho Verde region.

Stop #3 – Confeitaria Moura

Since 1892 Moura family has held the recipe to a unique pastry: Jesuita! At this tasting location, we'll have a cup of coffee, a jesuíta, and a limonete.

Stop #4 – Taxca

Savor this locals-only spot with the very famous "Bifana" and a glass of the oh-so-typical espadal. A mix of flavors that will make your taste buds spin.

Stop #5 – Garrafeira Oli Portugal

Finish off your tour in style with a Port wine masterclass and 3 types of Port tasting, including a vintage Port, of course!

Reviews

It is the second time I have done a Taste of Porto tour - the first with Andre on City Tour and this time with Maria on the Vintage Tour. Maria is extremely professional, friendly and knowledgeable - and can hold her own when explaining the architecture, history, culinary and viticulture against the hustle and bustle of busy Porto streets. Each of the stops we made was an experience until itself. Delicious food, drink and of course Port Wine and regional white, rose and red wines. Altogether an excellent experience.

Very interesting tour! I had the opportunity to taste some traditional portuguese food that I did not yet know. Very good food and the tour guide, Rita, was very nice! I will repeat for sure!

We booked onto the 10 am food tour with Andre. It was fantastic! We couldn’t have asked for more. There is so much food/wine and history on the tour you certainly don’t need lunch after. Each stop was different - we had a selection of pastries, Sandwiches, traditional Portuguese food and also a port tasting session at the end. Way more than we expected. Thank you so much for a fantastic experience!
