What You Can Expect
This was a really good tour and introduction to Porto. Sid was a great guide and there was plenty of variety in the places we visited and the food we tried. We got an insight into the history of the city as well as some very helpful recommendations on things to do for the rest of our stay.
Our afternoon tasting some local Portugese food and specialties was great!! Earlier in the day we had gone on a walking tour of Porto with Virginia, and we were pleased that she also took us on the food and wine tour. No need for lunch beforehand, as the tastings are substantial enough to take you through the afternoon until dinner!! Virigina was a fabulous guide in explaining the different things we would be having. Everything from the tasty tarts, liqueurs, port wine, cheeses, sausages, ,francesinhaI think it was, and other sandwich as well were all really good and fun to have at local shops.
We would highly recommend this tour. Virginia being a native of Porto is very knowledgeable and explained the different foods and traditions to us. She is quite personable and friendly and led the tour well in a very relaxed style, and also managed time and communication with the shop owners/staff in a professional way. A must for anyone visiting Porto!!
I absolutely loved this tour. Virginia our tour guide is from Porto and has a degree in Archeology. She was full of information about the city and the local foods. The food and wine we had was outstanding and I enjoyed everything I tried.
We, my wife and I had a thoroughly great tour with our guide for the day. We also met two other couples on the day, and ended up all meeting the next day for a further , homemade wine and tasting!
We would recommend the tour highly and thought the tour was interesting and personalised, by our local guide.
Awesome food with some awesome people! This made our Porto trip!
Fantastic guide Sid made our day truly memorable! We sampled a whole range of food, and enjoyed his company and enthusiasm! Sid was knowledgable, considerate and flexible. We spent ages trying Port and ham, and must have overrun the tour time, but Sid didnt' rush us at any point! Simply awesome!
This tour was fantastic - Sid, the local guide, really felt like a friend, and my husband and I had a great time spending the afternoon walking around the city with him. We were both defeated by the franchesinha, haha! It was exactly what we were looking for, he took us to places we would not have found on our own.
I booked this tour the same week I headed to Porto and was really happy with everything about it except the rain :. The gorgeous Virginia is a wonderful ambassador for the sights, food and wine of this beautiful city and it was great value. I thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Porto!
BEST trip EVER!!! Our tour guide was wonderful and the entire group really enjoyed themselves! A
Had a great tour with Virginia. She was very informative and took us to places we wouldn't have found on our own. The food and wine was fantastic especially the port tasting. Would recommend to anyone visiting Porto.
