What You Can Expect

Small-Group Porto Food and Wine Tour

Taste local pastries on this exciting food tour of Porto!

Meet your guide near Bolhão Metro Station, and then set off on your 3.5-hour walking tour of the city to learn about its culinary roots while seeing some of its most beautiful sights. Stroll through the neighborhood of Miragaia, gazing at its gorgeous riverside house and exploring the off-the-beaten-path alleyways that many visitors fail to find.

First stop is a 200-year-old cafe to start your day with a typically Portuguese habit: a strong coffee accompanied by a pastel de nata – a creamy custard tart with a crisp, caramelized top. As you enjoy your first sample of the tour, listen to your guide talking about some of the country’s dishes.

Bacalhau (dried and salted cod) is a Portuguese staple and is sold all around town. Hear of the fabled 1,001 different ways to prepare the versatile dish like boiling, frying or stewing, and then try a sample for yourself.

Continue walking around Porto, stopping at the bars and cafes favored by the locals. Down a shot of the local eduardinho – cherry liquor – as well as tripas moda do Porto, a popular tripe and white bean stew. Munch on a chamuça, Portugal’s answer to samosa, and try the eponymous Franceshina – an elaborate sandwich that based on the French croque-monsieur.

Your 3.5-hour tour finishes with a drink of Portugal’s ‘nectar of the Gods,’ Port! A glass of the country’s most famous export is the perfect way to finish your tour on a high note.
