What You Can Expect

Porto Food and Wine Tasting Tour

For the codfish lovers!

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.

Loved the afternoon small group gourmet food and wine tour with Sara and to see Porto through her eyes. From the food tasting of coffee and nata, to the marketplace which is sadly closing down for a renovation that will hopefully reopen again, so the locals can continue to make a livelihood. Cheeses and cured meats, to spicy pulled pork, quail and codfish cakes. Plus the ports including white and ruby. Meeting people from around the world was also another highlight of the tour, sharing insights into what makes us similar, yet different and sharing an experience where I made new friends. Thoroughly recommend the tour and Sara.

We had a really great time on this tour. First of all, they broke a large group into two smaller ones so we could all participate on a more personal level. Good call. The selection of stops I felt were well thought out, focusing on the smaller and more authentic experiences. There was plenty of food for everyone, and excellent historical and cultural references to their origins and traditions. Great job, Sara. Obrigada!

Great tour! Our guide Renato was full of local knowledge he was eager to share. The tour had a range of stops - modern coffee shop with AMAZING pasteis de nana, traditional tavern, wine shop - and they were all fabulous. I would highly recommend this tour.

Just returned from Porto one day ago, and I already miss it! Mario was an EXCELLENT tour guide, and was so knowledgeable about Porto. He was incredibly friendly, and my boyfriend and I immediately felt at ease with him, and the locals he introduced us to. The food and wine was incredible. He also filled us in on an amazing wine festival that added even more to our weekend. We had the best time, and would highly recommend booking this! If you're on the fence, BOOK IT!
