This private 3-hour food tour of Lisbon ensures you’ll feast on the best food that Portugal’s capital has to offer. Your gastronome guide handpicks eateries in which to sample eight Portuguese specialties and two traditional drinks: pleasure your palate with delicacies such as grilled sardines, locally made cheese, Alheira sausage, and ‘pastel de nata’ (custard tart). During the journey between eateries, you’ll enjoy panoramic city vistas and explore Alfama, Lisbon’s oldest neighborhood. Your private tour can be tailored to suit dietary requirements and preferences.
Your tour begins at the Miradouro Sao de Alcantara viewpoint, located on the Rua São Pedro de Alcântara. Here, you’ll greet your private guide, absorb panoramic city vistas, and receive an overview of Lisbon’s thriving culinary scene.
Over the course of three hours, you’ll sample foods typical of Portuguese cuisine: awaken your taste buds with alheira, a Portuguese sausage traditionally made with veal or duck, and then sample moelas (gizzards) and locally produced beer.
The next samples come in the form of bifana, a sandwich filled with spicy, slow-cooked pork, and Portuguese snails cooked according to an age-old recipe. Proceed to the oldest Ginjinha shop in the city to try liquor made from sour cherries, and then delight in local cheese, grilled sardines, and pastel de bacalhau (cod croquettes).
Throughout the tour, your guide provides commentary that links Portuguese culture with its cuisine, and explains the origin of traditional dishes. Your final stop is in the historic Alfama district, where you’ll take a seat on a terrace to eat the ultimate sweet treat, a pastel de nata.
Fabulous tour! It's a private tour with the guide. Sophia showed us so much of Lisbon, even taking us to some churches. The food is good, especially the pastel de nata, of course, from Manteigaria. It was divine! She also gave us some directions on where to buy tiles and some local art. She was wonderful!
Highly informative and tailored to personal preferences. Our guide Rui, was excellent. He Knows the little secret treasures of Portuguese food and history.

Excellent tour! Silvia the tour guide was all you could wish for - attentive to details, very good English, good selection of tapas and wine places, tons of interesting information, willing to customize the tour! She provided me with lots of historical information and even helped me select CDs with local fado music!
Silvia is definitely one of the best tour guides I've ever met in my travels around the world!
Rita was excellent. We started with the pastiche de Nata - fab, then to a pork sandwich place voted the best in Lisbon, then a plaza cafe in one of the main squares, various other stops and ended with Gingigha and more savoury bites. She was really knowledgeable and tailored it to us. e even gave her the added challenge of finding us a booking for new years eve for dinner, she gave us lots of places to try - all booked unsurprisingly but manged to try one of them the day after. Would definitely recommend and know they tailor the food to suit preferences.
Amazing and really authentic.
Excellent walking tour plus a great way to quickly learn the layout of the various neighborhoods in Lisbon. Take this tour early in your stay.
It was a great experience. Luis is a really good host! We really appreciated his wide knowledge and a nice personality. He took us to some great places to which we were coming back during our stay in Lisbon. We were really satisfied and would like to recommend this tour.
Silvia was amazing. We learned spook much from her. Her recommendations for other spots to go on other days was great. The food too was out of this world. Many places had no tourists at all just locals. Please ask for Silvia as your guide. Every Boat out trip in Europe or Asia we took was outstandi
Fantastic tour of Lisbon. Was recommended by a friend and met all my expectations.
Sylvia was AMAZING! First day in Lisbon and I knew very little about the city. I shared so much with my friends afterward I felt like a guide myself. All thanks to Sylvia. Great job. Fun to be with. Great guide. Oh and BTW... the food choices both gave me a great taste of fantastic local cuisine but were spread apart in a way that optimized sightseeing. Must do this!
