Fabulous tour! Did this 2 hours after arriving in Lisbon which turned out to be a great move. Lovely group of German/USA/UK peeps we had a blast!! Tried a good variety of wines and foods across a wide range of establishments, many of which we'd never have experienced or even found by ourselves. The tour was well thought through and the guides were very knowledgable and über friendly. We ended the tour in a local social club where jugs of vino appeared frequently. Our group were so bonded by this stage that we carried on ourselves and found some more bars under our own steam, no one wanted the night to end!! Highly recommend this tour as soon as you arrive in Lisbon to get the party started in style!

Make this your first tour here! It sets you up for the food, culture and history of Lisbon an excellent introduction. Our guide Pablo was extremely knowledgable and answered all our questions. The food selections were excellent as were the beverages, some matching. I really appreciated Pablo's passion for his country and his food suggestions. I went to one of the restaurants the following day, The George, and was really impressed. Because of the tour I had Cod and lime Risotto! My goodness! Pablo also personalised the tour for the group. Well done Pablo!!

This tour was THE highlight of my trip to Lisbon. I will go home and start cooking Portuguese food now

Our guide Pedro expertly leading through the different tastings, we learned about the foods not only in Lisbon but of the other regions in Portugal. In addition Pedro gave us recommendations for places to eat, to shop and to visit. As the evening progressed it became an evening out with friends. Thank you Pedro for a very enjoyable evening. A great way to find your way around the eating places in Lisbon.

Excellent tour! Our tour guide, Daniella, was not only very friendly and knowledgeable, she was also the lead singer in a band that represented Portugal in the Eurovision Song contest 2009! She made the whole tour very relaxed and enjoyable not only by introducing us to some of Portugal's delicacies, but also imparting advice on where to shop and the best places to try other local foods. the God's Bread is a must! A small intimate group tour where the emphasis is on making sure everyone has a great time which she did admirably. I can't recommend this tour enough.
