After meeting your guide near Bolhão Metro Station, begin your 3.5-hour small-group food and wine walking tour in Porto. Start by exploring the neighborhood of Miragaia. Hear about Porto’s delectable food heritage, as you admire stunning views of the Douro River. With your expert guide, weave your way through the myriad of tourist-free alleyways and enjoy Porto’s local ambiance.

After stretching your legs, snag a strong cup of coffee at Porto’s 200-year old cafe. For a complete Portuguese breakfast of champions, pair your java with a traditional a pastel de nata, a custard egg tartlet with caramelized top. Learn how this pastry was developed by monks in the late 17th century at the Jeronimos Monastery.

Your Porto food and wine tour continues with even more flavorful tastings at a nearby spot. Sip or shoot a pour of the local eduardinho (cherry liquor).

Crunch on a chamuça, a samosa-like savory pastry and enjoy a franceshina, a cured meat sandwich covered with melted cheese and a tomato and beer sauce.

Finally, lick your lips as you sip on the sweet nectar of Portugal’s Port, a renowned export. Learn how it’s exclusively produced in the Douro Valley and consumed as a digestif. Finish your glass and end your tour in central Porto.

Great tour! Probably best to only have a very small or no breakfast before! Even then it might be too much food :
The guide was very knowledgeable. The places we stopped were great.



5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

This was one of the best food tours I've ever taken. The pasteis de Nata we tried was one of the most delicious I've ever tried, and we went back to that cafe twice. The guide was incredibly kind, down-to-earth and easy to get along with. She brought us to a food market, took us to one of the best bifana spots in Portugal. We also went back there twice, and it was the best thing I ate in Porto! We tried some delicious cherry liquor in a chocolate cup, as well as port tastings with three kinds of cheese, plus meat and bread. We ended the tour with a hearty portion of francesinha and a pint of beer. We had so much delicious and tasty food, I was stuffed and feeling terrific at the end of the tour. Our guide showed us so many spots around the city, and gave us lots of insider tips.

This tour was one of the best tours I've ever taken. We learned SO much about Porto's history, culture and food and our guide Virginia was amazing. It was a very small group (just two of us) so we had a very personalized experience and were able to ask lots of questions. On the tour we tried the best Portuguese egg tarts I've ever had, port wine with cheese, a bifana (spicy pork) sandwich, codfish with an anise liquor, ginja berry liquor in a chocolate cup, and the famous francesinha sandwich. We liked the stops so much that we went back to a few of them two more times! I highly recommend this tour - it was a great introduction to Portuguese food and culture.

4 star rating: Recommended December 2014

First of all, a lot of food! I liked it! Nice tour with born and raised person in Porto. I didn't feel like a tour, more going out with somebody you know already a very long time.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2015

Started in a café with coffee and Nata delicious! Then on to a bar for a beer and spicy pork sandwich tasty, then to a restaurant for chorizo, croque monsieur and a glass of Vinho Verde. Not very exciting. in Porto but no Port!! The tour guide was a pleasant local young man with excellent English. He answered our questions well but didn't seem to have much to say. Only 5 in the group which was good but didn't feel we got value for money given how cheap Porto is for food and drink
