Helder our guide was both comical and filled with history. We loved the going to the first true drive through for petite cous....afternoon snacks of cod and green wine. The quince paste and cheese was superb eclipsed only by the pumpkin jam cheese and bread...oh reallynall the food was great, a nice walk, met good people, great architecture and a history lesson....don't miss this tour!
This tour was excellent and far exceeded our expectations. Our guide was very engaging and brought the areas of Lisbon we toured to life. The places we sampled Portugese foods and drinks were very traditional Portugese bars, deli's and restaurants which made the experience even that much better. At Manteigaria Silva we were introduced to a fabulous cheese/quince jam combination followed by a traditional Portugese drink called ginja. From there we visited A Tendinha, Grapes and Bites, Casa da Alentejo and had wonderful wines and foods in all these establishments. We spent well over four hours on this tour and the time just flew by. This is a tour well worth taking as it gives you a great feel for downtown Lisbon and areas like Barrio Alto and a representative taste of traditional Portugese foods, wines and ginja the national drink of Portugal.
My husband, friend and I LOVED this tour. We are early 30s and were the youngest on the tour by at least 20 years and it was the best. Our guide was excellent! All the stops were tasty and we didn't even need dinner after. We got to see little pockets of the city that we may have missed and really utilized our guide for his restaurant/shop recommendations. I would go again in a second!!
Excellent tour, our guide, Sophia was even better. The tastings were perfect and plenty of food and drink with very informative discussion as well. Highly recommend!
Interesting tour mixing information about food, customs, areas of the city and history....Sofia, our guide ,was great: personable, funny, warm knowledgeable and informative....very recommendable
Wow, Joannna was wonderful. She answered all of the groups questions and peppered the tour with appropriate observations, anecdotes, and little lnown facts. This was a totally enjoyable introduction to Lisbon.
Fantastic way to see historic Lisbon and taste the food and wine of the region. Our guide, Hélder, was knowledgable and helpful as well as friendly throughout the tour.
It was wonderful. The guide was very knowledgeable and talked on the subject with great passion. Spent extra time with the group answering our questions.
Loved this tour, the guide and the people we met. Managing the walking tour during peak pedestrian times was a challenge at some points. Also, it was one of the hottest days of the year. It was difficult to start the stop 14 people at random points on our journey. Sofia was great a bit soft spoken at times, again considering the size of our group and the large crowds on the sidewalks. All the tastings were terrific. Sofia was very helpful in helping us identify sources/resources for the rest of our Lisbon trip. We highly recommend this tour.
Excellent tour!! I could tell it surpassed everyone expectations.
