What You Can Expect
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.
Next, hear of the mythical 1,001 different ways to prepare bacalhau, a dried and salted cod. Learn how this traditional dish can be fried, boiled, or stewed. Then, devour a savory sample.
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). Then, advance your taste buds to a classic tripe and white bean stew called tripas moda do Porto. 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.

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.
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
