Porto Food and Wine Tasting Tour

Meat lovers will love this one!

After meeting your guide, kick off your tour with a rich coffee and nata (egg custard tart). Then, learn why northern Portugal’s best traditional cuisine is in Porto as you head to Bolhão Market. Enjoy the ambiance of this cheerful two storey open-air arcade where farmers sell colorful produce and clean fresh fish to order.
Wander along quaint roads to a shop that’s sold smoked meat and cheese for more than a century. Learn about the shop, and then try one of its classics: a hearty pork sandwich known as a bifana. Wash down the treat with a beer, and then continue your tour to Leandro Café.
One of the oldest taverns in Porto, Leandro Café sells the signature dish of bolinhos e punheta de bacalhau, a Portuguese cod fishcake. Enjoy a sample of liquor alongside the fish and learn about the dish from your guide.
Finally, it’s time for a sample of Port at a locally loved wine bar, which boasts more than 200 wines on its wine list. From there, continue to a generations-old tavern to enjoy some of the finest tapas in town.

This is an excellent tour if you like to go off the beaten path. See where locals eat and find small hole-in-the-wall places where the food and wine is wonderful. Be prepared to start drinking Port at around 11am, after coffee and pastries, of course! Rinato was very knowledgeable and fun to have as a guide! Highly recommended!

This trip was better than expected. From start to finish a most enjoyable experience. Sid our guide was informative and entertaining. Accompanied by two delightful couples we toured the food spots of Porto that only an insider would know about. There was lots to eat , plenty of excellent port wine and cold beer accompanied by lots of laughter. A very pleasant way to spend time in Porto and highly recommended.
