You have seen Ribeira, Luis I Bridge, and Clérigos Tower, now let us take you beyond the tourist attractions for a taste of the real Porto with our Downtown Food Tour – the oldest Food Tour in town.
Like taking a walk with a friend, your tour guide will introduce you to 7 unique tasting locations. At each tasting location on our Downtown Food Tour, you will taste an important element of the cuisine of Porto and the North of Portugal. You will also learn about the families and the history behind each of the restaurants, cafes, and specialty food shops that you visit. In between tasting locations you will hear about the history, architecture, and culture while you walk the streets of this beautiful city called Porto.
We've worked hard on making this a 5-star tour. Book your place today and let's see if you agree with us.

List of measures to keeping 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
Guests are required to use face masks during our tours - even though we would love to see smiles all over our guests’ faces during the Food Tour journey, we will have to ask all to wear a face mask this time
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
According to the Portuguese Government, guests have to provide their Digital Covid Certificate or a negative test in order to go inside a restaurant during the weekends (starting at 7 pm every Friday). You can either show your Digital Covid Certificate, a PCR test (must not be older than 72 hours), an antigen Test (must not be older than 48 hours), or a Rapid antigen Test. There’s no need to provide any document if you stay outside or if you are attending this tour on a weekday
