Sara our guide met us at the Sao Bento train station. She eagerly introduced herself and asked if we were familiar with the history of Porto and the train station. As we were not, she began explaining the history and the stories behind the wall tiles, which are very important in Porto. From the train station we began our walk, with the first stop being a coffee shop for lunch, where my travel companion was offered a Pork sandwich while I a nonmeat eater had a lovely salad. From the coffee shop we continued walking and eating, stopping at a cheese store, a bread shop, a wine store with another stop for some port. Our next stop was an traditional market where we sampled olives and nuts. By then we were satiated yet had more stops- Pastel de Nata a traditional dessert and coffee and an olive oil tasting. We thought this would be the standard 3 hour tour. Before we knew over 4 hours had passed and Sara was putting us in a cab with a doggie bag so we could continue feasting at our hotel.
Not only does Sara offer a fabulous Food Tour, she also offers wine tours and day tours in and around Porto. Having been on several food tours in other European cities, I must say that Sara's tour was extremely comprehensive and throughly enjoyable!
Sarah could not do enough for us especially as my wife is vegetarian. Her knowledge was amazing and perhaps the culmination of the tour at the Olive House was quite mind blowing as the lady who owns the place, had incredible knowledge about this subject
Porto is about food and drink, don't miss it.
