Lisbon started our European tour in May, I've been lax in writing this review, but I am please to say it was fantastic. As a private tour my wife and I were able to really get to know our tour guide. She gave us the insider view of many sites and as the tour was centered around the foods and drinks of Lisbon we got to taste many wonderful items. From the Ginga Cherry to the Cream Puff all the tastes were great. The highlight for us was the ending where we sat at the Lisbon Wine Bar and excellent place to enjoy great tapas, wine and port.
Best four hours my wife and I spent with Elsa, our tour guide, who was affiliated with your friend in Lisbon. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Lisbon and Spain and showed us hidden gems that we would have never found on our own. Elsa spoke perfect English was an absolute a joy to spent time with. The Port Wine and Tapas Tasting took place at the Lisbon Winery and was superb. I have been on other tours where the so called wine tasting involved only a couple of wines. At the Lisbon Winery, we were not only presented with five different ports but also refills. They also presented 2 huge platters, one filled with many different meats and the other with regional cheeses, fruits and nuts. Again, Elsa Paseoa sp a great guide, Lisbon Winery, a great wine bar and all worth every penny of the cost.

This was one of the best tours i went on during my trip and we had such an amazing time learning from our friendly guide and sitting at an absolutely wonderful wine/tapas bar that she took us to. I was incredibly impressed with both the knowledge i gained and the absolutely amazing cheeses, port and meats i tried....we got so much more than we asked for and it was definitely a highlight of our entire trip. this is one of the few tours i highly, highly recommend no matter what....you wont be disappointed...the guides in Portugal are all excellent....just a credit to their profession and ours was no exception.

Just a fabulous tour all around and a must see for anyone looking to experience the amazing wine, meats, and cheeses of Portugal. Our guide was excellent and an amazing host...the wine/tapas bar we went to was also incredible. i can't recommend this tour enough....it will be one of the best you will make in Lisbon.
One of my favorite tours of all time. Margarehta was a charming and informative guide and the wine tasting and tapas at the end of the tour was outstanding. This was a great way to learn about Lisbon and the Portugese life style.
Rita was an amazing tour guide. Her English was exceptional. She was so passionate about everything she showed us and shared with us and her history knowledge is so good. We did quite a bit of walking, but loved every minute of it. Ended the tour with a worthwhile tapas and port tasting. Thank you, Rita.
Outstanding Tour! It was our last day In Lisbon and It ended with a great experience with Our guide Elsa, who was very knowledgable and friendly. We met her close to our Hotel and then walked throughout Lisbon for a few hours before ending up at the Lisbon Winery in the Bairro Alto area for a Wine tasting along Artisanl cheeses with Chorizo, ham and jams! DElISH! They serve Premium Portuguese Wines which are exceptional an presented by Alex, who is an expert in his field! We loved the entire experience from beginning to end!
Our tour guide, Rita, and the port/ tapas tasting were both amazing! First - this is truly a private tour. It was just my husband and I with the guide. Second - the hills of Lisbon are steep and the guide is able to let you set the pace. I had surgery a few weeks prior and wasn't over it as much as I hoped. First couple of hours historical walking tour. Rita was able to answer with dates! every question I threw her way and she pointed out several local food stores that we returned to on our own the next day. Last part of tour rest and relaxation with port and generous tapas. The restaurant staff was knowledgeable and funny. What could be better? My favorite part of our trip to Lisbon!
This walking and tasting tour was fantastic. Marta brought the city of Lisbon to life, explaining the history and showing us the highlights of the downtown core. She was knowledgeable and lots of fun. At the end of the tour, the tasting was superb and we really appreciated the explanation by our restaurant host as to the background and importance of the four ports and tapas we had the opportunity to try. Marta was so easy to be with and through conversation with her we felt that we got to know so much about the Portuguese life and culture. We highly recommend you take this tour.
Excellent tour. Had a wonderful guide who was most interesting. We took the tour on our last night in Lisbon. What a way to end our trip to Portugal. Did not want the evening to end. Would do the tour over again in a heart beat.
Would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning more about Lisbon and having an amazing experience. We were teamed up with Adriana from the local tour group Your Friend in Lisbon. She was incredibly friendly and spoke excellent English. She showed us a number of amazing sights and shared a lot of history and fun facts with us. She seemed to have an 'in' every location we visited. The icing on the cake was the final visit to Grapes and Bites, a fantastic wine bar in Barrio Alto. Along with Ricardo, the manager, Adriana and Ricardo really indulged us with fantastic port tastings, the best cured meats and local cod dishes, and a very special honeymoon present. This was our first night in Lisbon and it was truly the best way to kick-off our honeymoon. A very special thank you to Adriana!
She did a wonderful job of explaining the history of Lisbon as well as guiding us through various neighborhood and communities. The Port Wine and Tapas were well presented and delightful, no dinner needed. Very professionally presented.
We had a wonderful time. Our guide was awesome. She shared so much interesting history. She truly made the day a pleasure.!ending the tour at the wine tasting and enjoyable nag the wonderful wine and cheese and ham was perfect. Highly recommend this tour.
This was excellent. Alex the owner of the company was fantastic. We took a tour prior to this on the same day Small Group Walking Tour with Food and Wine Tastings and the tour guide was friends with Alex. She made sure to cover different areas of Lisbon. Since it is a private tour, it can be adjusted to different areas. The Tapas and Port at the end were amazing as was the place we had them. I recommend doing both tours back to back on your first full day. It was not too much and the experience made the trip.
Instead of the port wine tour, I was able to switch to the Private Lisbon tour with premium Portuguese wine and tapas tastings. Our guide Sofia was personable and informative as she took us through the neighborhoods explaining history, culture and special qualities of the areas. Perhaps I misread or presumed from my initial selection that we would be tasting tapas and wines at different venues as we walked through the neighborhoods. This was my priority for signing up for a food tour as I wanted to be acquainted with places in the neighborhoods. I definitely remember reading about stopping at Cervejaria Trinidade but the site description has since changed. The tastings only took place at the wine bar on our last stop.
This would not have been my choice had I known it was basically a history walking tour with tastings at one wine bar.
