After stretching your legs, snag a strong cup of coffee at Porto’s 200-year old cafe.

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.

Food was great, and a fun way to see the city. Wish we learned more about the city and culture, but otherwise a really good time. It was fun to try different food.

Wanted to learn about the real local food of Porto where the locals eat. And we did. The food was delicious although a couple of things were substituted from the write up but still local and still delicious. From Pastel de nata to chamucas to bifana to standing around a barrel in a local butcher shop tasting sausages and cheeses and breads and olives and each 'sample' was a full helping with a local wine or beer to was it down. We ended up in a Port wine cellar having 3 tastings. It was a great way to spend half a day and saw a part of the city we probably would never have gotten to. The guide was very nice but he could have given us a little more background on Portuguese food. All in all a great experience.

This was a GREAT tour! Our guide was Andreia and she did a wonderful job guiding us thru the city, taking us off the beaten path and sharing her passion and knowledge of Porto. All the food and drink sampled was amazing and full sized portions. Recommend even for the not so adventurous eater.

Great tour that opens doors the average tourist would never find. Our guide Renato was extremely personable and knowledgeable. Only four on our tour which was ideal, I don't think the tour would be suitable for large numbers. Lots of food, coffee, port and wine. A great introduction to Portuguese cuisine and culture.

Excellent tour!!! We went to some food establishments that were off the tourist trail, but frequented by locals, that had amazing food. We loved it so much, that we went back there several more times. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Porto and all of Portugal. He also knew a lot about wines. The sommelier we had at the wine bar was also excellent. If you're a foodie and want to experience a country's culture through food and wine, you should take this tour.

Disappointing. 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

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.
