Our Vintage Food Tour is loved by first-time visitors to Porto, as it not only takes you off the beaten path but also hits several highlights of the city, including plenty of must-sees for a first-time visit. It is the perfect experience for families, friends, couples, adventurous foodies or solo travelers who want to encounter Porto like a local.

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

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 #4 – Caldeireiros

Dive into the heart of Medieval Porto, stopping at a restaurant to learn about the "petisco" tradition, small plates that are best shared. You'll enjoy delicious codfish cakes, "rojões" and a glass of wine.

Finish off your tour in style with a Port wine masterclass and 3 types of Port tasting, including a vintage Port, of course! Perfectly paired with hand-selected cheeses and a curated selection of cured pork.

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!
