See the city on your terms

A few years ago, our team had to put together a special itinerary for a special traveler: Anthony Bourdain.

If you've watched all Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown episodes, you already know that Tony used to connect with the cities in a very unique way.

  • He was known around the world as the guy who’d eat anything you put in front of him;

  • He always arrived hungry to the places he was visiting;

  • He stayed off TripAdvisor and Yelp;

  • Didn't read any guidebooks whatsoever;

  • Always trusted locals on his travels... and very often ended up sharing a drink (or five) with a few of them.

By that time, our team of travel designers put together a special itinerary;

  • Built around particular topics Bourdain wanted to see addressed;

  • Tailored to his interests, needs, budget, and time constraints.

We feel lucky that we got to meet Anthony Bourdain once. He was an inspiration. He still is.

There are not enough words to express the joy we feel every time we have to craft exclusive itineraries for travelers.

Traveling to a new country can be one of the most exciting adventures we take on​. Helping a visitor making that travel more meaningful and unique is our favorite thing.

Our Custom Food Tours are as unique as you are.

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

  • In Portugal, masks are no longer mandatory on the streets. However, the General Directorate of Health (DGS) recommends continuing to use a mask in certain situations. Masks must still be worn in indoor public spaces: public transport, senior housing facilities, shops, commercial spaces (like the cinema), and healthcare locations.

  • 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, or 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

Peace of mind policy

Let's imagine that you are unable to make the tour. Can you have a refund? The answer is yes.

  • If we are notified within 72 hours of the tour we will be happy to offer you a refund or reschedule you on a tour anytime over the next year. We can also generate a Gift Card so you can book it at a later time - for free. Please note that, unless you are rescheduling for a specific date, we will issue a Gift Card that is valid for 3 years. If you decide to proceed with the refund, a processing fee will be charged.

Reviews

One of the few absolute MUSTS I've ever found. The guides are charismatic, knowledgeable, and very experienced. The tours teach you so much about the city, culture, history, and most importantly, food and drink. There is excellent value to price, and after the tour the whole city seems to open up as you know so much about it and what areas to explore further. The knowledge is also absorbed passively and not simply lectured at you, the whole experience felt less like a guided tour and more like a friend showing you around their favorite city.

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).

Andre, the owner, gave the tour and it was fantastic. Not only is he an expert on the food and wine you'll try, but he is also a history and architecture buff. I highly recommend this tour!
