The Porto food tour was the highlight of our holiday in Porto. I was expecting small samples of food but we were actually presented with so much food at each stop that we didn't eat again all day! We were taken to places we would never have found on our own and shown fantastic hospitality by everyone involved. Sid, our guide, was wonderful, an intelligent and entertaining young man who taught us so much about the Portuguese way of life and showed a genuine interest in our lives. Our original guide was ill and had to cancel but 'Blue Dragon' were brilliant and pulled out all the stops to let us know and to arrange an alternative for us, I can't praise them highly enough. Highly recommended!!

What an amazing tour with a great group expertly run by Sid our guide. Sid speaks excellent English, is extremely knowledgeable and a really nice guide. We ate and drank lots of great traditional food and drinks whilst walking around the beautiful city of Porto - a must for those new to the city - this experience was the highlight of our weekend, a big recommendation!

Highly recommended. Not only did this tour offer amazing food and beer and port but also offered a cultural and historical overview of Porto. I did the free walking tour the following day different company and found that the food tour covered most of the Porto sights despite being a designated food tour. The tour company was well organised and the guide was amazing! Food and alcohol portions were also generous did not eat dinner!.

Another rainy day walking tour!! That turned out to be great day!! Renato our guide was knowledgeable on the area sights and foods.
We stopped at more places than I thought we would get to!! Don't eat breakfast because you are in for many yummy treats!!
First stop was for coff and Natas a local pastry that you will Then we went to store near a market. Different Wine cheese bread and hams were offered to taste and purchase if you like. Then on to a local sandwich shop to try a pork sandwich and local beer Superbock. All were good but you must pace yourself.. The tour goes on. A local wine store near the water to try different Ports. we ordered some to ship home Then to a fresh fish tasting. I did find out I'm def not a sardine fan.. Fun to try though. Last stop was off the beaten path. You felt like you were at Grandmas house!! We had cod fritters, vegetables, meat fritters, and green wine. One of my favorite tours we have done
