What You Can Expect

Lisbon Small-Group Gourmet Portuguese Food and Wine Tour

Lisbon Small-Group Gourmet Portuguese Food and Wine Tour

Meet your guide in central Lisbon (Praça de D. Pedro IV) and begin your small-group gourmet food and wine tour. Throughout the tour you’ll 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'll 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, the Bairro Alto became Lisbon’s bohemian quarter and the center of its nightlife.

Visit one of the most famous restaurants in Lisbon, Cervejaria da Trindade, known for its seafood and steaks. Then head down the steps of Calçada do Duque, where you'll 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 Bacalhau, hams, and cheeses at 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, and try it at the first place that started to sell it in 1840. 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 the Neo-Moorish Casa do Alentejo, 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 will conclude here.

This was an excellent tour! Joanna was hilarious and so much fun. She knew a lot about the city, it's history and the cuisine. The food tasting was also a great way to understand the Portuguese culture. The cod fish cakes were excellent! Our group that ranged from 20s to 70s bonded so well that we all went for a post-tour Wine-crawl. It turned out to be a highlight of our trip. I highly recommend!

Loved the afternoon small group gourmet food and wine tour with Ricardo and to see Lisbon through his eyes. I did the morning small group walking tour with Ricardo, so we spent a full day together and the tours were both mostly different. Loved the food tasting, from codfish cakes to cheese, marmalade, sausage and local bread, tapas. Wine tasting from Port, Ginja liquor, red, green and white wines. Meeting people from around the world was also another highlight of the tour, sharing insights into what makes us similar, yet different and sharing an experience where I made new friends. Thoroughly recommend the tour and Ricardo.

This was a brilliant tour. We did this on our second day in Lisbon and it really helped to see areas of Lisbon we probably wouldn't have seen. I love food tours. They are such a good way to find out about the food and culture. Pedro our guide was interesting and knowledgeable and added so much to our knowledge and understanding of Lisbon/Portugal. We were given tastes of food and wine including the cherry liquor. The wine in Portugal is really good. We were a group of 10 and Pedro was attentive to the different interests and expectations of the group. He was keen at the end to offer personalized suggestions to individuals/couples according to what they were interested in. I would thoroughly recommend this tour. Thank you Pedro.

Tiago was a wonderful guide, so humourous, informed and interesting. The tour covered quite a wide area of downtown Lisbon and we were able to sample many of the foods and wines particular to there. The tour was almost 5 hours, but it did not seem long, as it was so interesting and the small group numbers added to the appeal of this tour. I would thoroughly recommend it.

I joined this tour after 24 hours of traveling, but still thoroughly enjoyed it. The group of 12 strangers was friendly and great to spend a few hours with. Our tour leader was knowledgeable and very friendly, ensuring she spent time chatting to each member of the group. A great intro to Lisbon.

Tiago was an excellent guide. Very personable and knowledgeable about Lisbon and Portugal in general far beyond gastronomy alone. Answered all of our questions and more. . . Quite a few food samplings and more wine than expected from port to vinho verde to cherry licor. Group size was 14, with a wide age range and Tiago was very skillful in making all feel part of the group or family as he referred to us. One caveat - one person in the tour had a fish allergy so could not eat several of the foods we tasted, i.e., sardines, codfish cakes. Hard to really sample Portuguese cuisine without eating fish but, I think he did enjoy the tour. . .
