What To Expect

Meet your guide in central Lisbon and begin your small-group gourmet food and wine tour. Throughout the tour, meet locals and learn about traditional Portuguese dishes and culinary culture. Warm up your taste buds during a visit to a local restaurant, with petiscos—Portugal’s version of tapas.

Learn about Lisbon’s cafe culture with visits to the 18th-century Café Nicola, a terrific spot for tertúlias, and discover why Pastelaria Suiça is another landmark of Rossio. You also have a chance to try the famous Portuguese codfish cake with a glass of refreshing vinho verde (green wine).

Continue to a wine bar in the Bairro Alto quarter for tapas and a glass of local white wine. In the 20th century, Bairro Alto became Lisbon’s bohemian quarter and the center of its nightlife.

Visit a much-loved local restaurant, known for its seafood and steaks. Then head down the steps of Calçada do Duque, where you find a variety of restaurants with great esplanades and music. The area is especially popular during the summer months because of the views over Castle Hill.

Then discover the 100-year-old secrets behind Lisbon’s most delectable sausages, salted cod, hams, and cheeses at a local gourmet shop. At a nearby bar, sip a classic Portuguese cherry brandy and note its similarities with Port, Portugal's famed fortified wine. Learn about the history of the sweet drink as you taste it alongside a piece of São Jorge cheese.

Learn the history of ginjinha, the favorite liqueur of many Portuguese, as you sample it in a nearby bar. Afterward, go to Portas de Santo Antão Street, one of the city’s main entrances, where part of the old Fernandine wall once sat.

Finish your gourmet Portuguese food and wine tour with a meal at a gorgeous 17th-century palace. Taste chouriço sausage, bread, and other local products served with a glass of delicious red wine while admiring one of the most captivating Lisbon interiors. Your tour concludes here.

A must do!!
Aisling_M, Feb 2023
This is a must do if you are coming to Lisbon. Great way to meet new people, see the city and get a one to one history lesson on the food and wine aspects of the country and the city. Our tour guide Daniel was great, very friendly, explaining everything really well and getting to know us all individually. Really enjoyed this experience!
Excellent Taste of Lisboa!
Dana_D, Feb 2023
Our group had an excellent experience with tour guide Sofia. It is a great way to experience beautiful Lisboa. Highly recommend this tour!
Fabulous way to start your Lisbon stay
Mitch_M, Feb 2023
Daniel was a great guide with numerous personal and family stories that brought the food culture to life. He had a great knack at engaging with all 12 guests. We particularly liked the care and time given to our last stop where we could sit at a restaurant table and have a long relaxed evening chatting, eating and drinking with our new best friends. 5 stars.
Perfect balance

Perfect Sample of Lisbon
Philip_T, Feb 2023
Joanna was amazing and had helpful insight to the city and the stops, she was able to tell us interesting facts about português culture and food. I would highly recommend this tour to both newcomers to Lisbon and those that may have been many times before. She was fun and entertaining and had us laughing (and drinking) our way around the area. If your are questioning wether to book let this review say that you should and trust me you will have a wonderful time and learn so much along the way

An Excellent Introduction to Portugal
Nan_H, Jan 2023
This outstanding experience provided a terrific introduction to Lisbon (and Portugal). The guide was fantastic -- she was knowledgeable, friendly, fun and an enthusiastic storyteller. The food, drinks and places we visited were very well chosen. The small group size made getting around very manageable.
A nice way to taste Lisbon
Brian_M, Jan 2023
Luis was a wonderful guide. He shared a great deal of information with us. I would have liked a bit more history with the food. I want to know why certain food became classic Portuguese, etc. The food choices were very good and they should be better able to handle non-drinkers.
So well worth doing.
Helen_C, Jan 2023
Our host Anna was first class. A most enjoyable evening and she had all the group chatting to each other within 10 minutes.
Food, drinks, and walking
Brian_G, Jan 2023
Great tour with history of the food and drinks we consumed along the way. Sophia was a very knowledgeable guide, ensuring all our questions were answered and provided helpful suggestions at the end of the tour. There was one stop with beer, but provided an option for wine for the non-beer drinkers in the group. There was a couple minute walk between each stop, but nothing too far. Just enough time to digest, ask a few questions, and be ready for the next drink.
