What You Can Expect
Cafe Nicola, one of Lisbon’s greatest cafes, is your first stop. An 18th-century building, it has been the place for literary gathering since it opened. Next, discover why Pastelaria Suiça in Rossio is such a popular place for pastries, and learn the secrets of success at Manteigaria Silva, open since 1908. Ogle the delicious products on display, such as sausages, hams and cheeses. Here, learn the history of Port, Portugal’s famous fortified wine, as you try it with a piece of delicious São Jorge cheese. Later, compare your Port with a typical Portuguese cherry brandy at A Ginjinha, and try a bacahlau cake at Cafe Beira Gare.
If you have a sweet tooth, you will enjoy the walk by Confeitaria Nacional, the oldest confectionery shop in the Baixa district, as your guide leads you to Casa Brasileira. Try the famous pastel de nata (custard tart), one of Portugal's most famous pastries, and learn why many Portuguese sweets have Catholic names.
Then it’s on to Cervejaria da Trindade, once one of the most important convents in Lisbon and now a restaurant famous for its seafood and steaks. Sample a local beer and tremoucos and then head to the garden of São Pedro de Alcantara and the steps of Calçada do Duque, two areas with a great variety of restaurants and nice views of the city. Finish your gourmet tour with a light meal (local bread, cheese, sausage and other local products) and a glass of Alentejo wine at the Neo-Moorish Casa do Alentejo, a 17th-century palace with one of the most intriguing interiors of the city.
Excellent tour with Dani. She did a tremendous job of explaining the history of Portugal as well as introducing us to the foods of Portugal.
Wonderful! Andre was our tour guide. We had a wonderful mix of people. The tour contained what I expected as to food of Lisbon, history lesson and great conversation with our other tour patrons. I enjoyed this 3 hour period and recommend it to anyone that can fit it into their time in Lisbon!
This was the BEST and lots of fun. Our tour guide - Pedro Osorio -- was also terrific! Made 4-5 stops in local places throughout Lisbon tasting a local food/wine at each place. It lasted about 4 hours and you walk from place-to-place so wear good walking shoes. A bottle of water is also a good thing to take for hydration between the eating and drinking! I am putting this type of tour on my must do list for all future trips!
This was our second walking tour of the day, and I was very pleased to find there was very little overlap with the other tour. Again, we had a wonderful guide. She was friendly, and clearly loves her country and her culture and happily shared that love with us in a way that made us love Lisbon too. We had several tasty treats which gave us the opportunity to rest our feet in between, and to chat with our guide and the other tourist in our tour group. We were fortunate in that we were off season and thus had a small group of four including ourselves. I highly recommend this tour as a fun way to get a glimpse and taste of Lisbon. I highly recommend our guide, name, as a wonderful resource for information about Lisbon, and Portugal, and as a fun guide!
Wonderful wine, unique food, interesting establishments, great storytelling. Terrific guide, Pedro!
Very informative, Pablo taught us so much about Portuguese history!
Brilliant tour for food and booze lovers. You do actually get a lot of info on Lisbon and some great ideas on where to eat. Our tour guide Dani was simply the best. Overall - great value for money
By far the coolest tour guide ever. Her name is Johana I believe and she is extremely knowledgeable and super funny. She will make this tour amazing. This is a great tour to explore downtown Lisbon and to see all major areas within a 5 hour time period. I totally would do this tour again. Note for lightweights, you do drink a lot so make sure you take your water bottles. Also, wear comfortable shoes since there is a lot of slope walking. Last note is to make sure you check the train station at the end of the tour and book a roundtrip to Sintra which is only 9E. You will totally love Sintra. The tour guide was born there and after visiting Sintra I can say what an amazing city. Enjoy Lisbon and the great foods you try in this tour.
Great tour, excellent tour guide. Would do it again.
Martha did an excellent job under very tough conditions. Being a holiday, the square was very crowded and difficult to find group. It rained, and most places were packed due to the 25th April celebrations. Great intro to Lisbon. Thanks Martha
