Your tour begins at the Miradouro Sao de Alcantara viewpoint, located on the Rua São Pedro de Alcântara. Here, you’ll greet your private guide, absorb panoramic city vistas, and receive an overview of Lisbon’s thriving culinary scene.
Over the course of your tour, you’ll sample foods typical of Portuguese cuisine: awaken your taste buds with alheira, a Portuguese sausage traditionally made with veal or duck, and then sample moelas (gizzards) and locally produced beer.
The next samples come in the form of bifana, a sandwich filled with spicy, slow-cooked pork, and Portuguese snails cooked according to an age-old recipe. Proceed to the oldest Ginjinha shop in the city to try liquor made from sour cherries, and then delight in local cheese, grilled sardines, and pastel de bacalhau (cod croquettes).
Throughout the tour, your guide provides commentary that links Portuguese culture with its cuisine, and explains the origin of traditional dishes. Your final stop is in the historic Alfama district, where you’ll take a seat on a terrace to eat the ultimate sweet treat, a pastel de nata.
