This private half-day food tour of Lisbon ensures you’ll feast on the best food that Portugal’s capital has to offer. Your gastronome guide handpicks eateries in which to sample Portuguese specialties and traditional drinks: pleasure your palate with delicacies such as grilled sardines, locally made cheese, Alheira sausage, and ‘pastel de nata’ (custard tart). During the journey between eateries, you’ll enjoy panoramic city vistas and explore Alfama, Lisbon’s oldest neighborhood. Your private tour can be tailored to suit dietary requirements and preferences.    
  • Private food tour of Lisbon
  • Feast on Portuguese delicacies handpicked by a local food lover
  • Explore the historic district of Alfama and enjoy panoramic city veiws from Miradouro de Sta Catarina
  • Sample specialties such as pastel de nata, grilled sardines, and Ginjinha liquor
  • Customize the tour's itinerary according to dietary requirements and culinary preferences
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.

Lisbon Food Tour

Thoroughly enjoyed the Guide and his extensive knowledge of the food of Lisbon as well as his ability to circumvent crowds and walking shortcuts.
Perfect Introduction
, Oct 2019
We booked this for the same day we flew into Lisbon. We were jet lagged but it was a great way to get introduced to the city's food. Helped us decide what we wanted to focus on and what we could check the box that we tried and move on. Mariana was able to give us histories of the food and the city that really added to the enjoyment of the tastings. This is absolutely a must do!
Great intro to Portuguese food

This was a private food tour with a local named Carolina. Carolina is a very personable and sincere guide. She was very patient with us, especially since my mom is a slow walker. We enjoyed the food on our tour. I would suggest doing this tour on your first day in Lisbon because it is a good introduction to Portuguese food. We started at Bairro Alto and ended up in Alfama so brace yourself for a lot of walking. The hardest part was getting to the meeting point because it was at a high point (with a good view), then it was downhill walking afterwards (except when you get to Alfama when you have to climb up a long set of stairs). We went to 4 different restaurants plus a stop to try Ginja. Don't eat a large meal before this as you will be very full at the end.
Fun with food in Lisbon

Our tour guide Marianna was fantastic. We walked through different neighborhoods of Lisbon and experienced food tasting at small local taverns and cafes. The tour was fun and informative. Delicious and plenty to eat. Would highly recommend this!
Great food tour and city experience!

Great experience

Mariana was terrific and we really enjoyed the tour. The food was also very good and there was plenty of it.
Ines was a terrific guide!
, Sep 2019
I was hesitant about a food tour for just me but Ines was great - knowledgable, friendly, conversant and most of all left me full of food and wine. I could not eat dinner! A wonderful tour.
Very accommodating

John gave a great tour, accommodating our food preferences and interests. We cover a lot of territory and learned a lot
lisbon food and wine
, Sep 2019
This tour was a terrible waste of money. I paid $160. 00 for two tickets and received probably no more than 20 euros worth of street food. The drinks included two small glasses of beer and two shots of a local cherry cordial. The walking was not enjoyable. In my opinion this is nothing but a tourist trap and scam.
Fantastic Food tour of Lisbon
, Aug 2019
My wife, our sons ages 11, 14 and 17, and I recently did this walking food tour in Lisbon. Our guide was Carolina, who we recommend highly! She was knowledgeable about the city’s history and took us to places where the locals go. Authentic and delicious traditional Portuguese food. We all absolutely loved it. She even made us dinner reservations for that evening, which was also an amazing meal, and arranged for a table with a spectacular sunset city view. Overall, we truly had an exceptional experience!
