Excellent tour!!! We went to some food establishments that were off the tourist trail, but frequented by locals, that had amazing food. We loved it so much, that we went back there several more times. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Porto and all of Portugal. He also knew a lot about wines. The sommelier we had at the wine bar was also excellent. If you're a foodie and want to experience a country's culture through food and wine, you should take this tour.
A fantastic tour and lots to eat and drink. Our guide was brilliant and with just four of us on the tour we had a very personal experience with plenty of opportunities to chat, ask questions and take photo's.
Great tour! Probably best to only have a very small or no breakfast before! Even then it might be too much food :
The guide was very knowledgeable. The places we stopped were great.
This was one of the best food tours I've ever taken. The pasteis de Nata we tried was one of the most delicious I've ever tried, and we went back to that cafe twice. The guide was incredibly kind, down-to-earth and easy to get along with. She brought us to a food market, took us to one of the best bifana spots in Portugal. We also went back there twice, and it was the best thing I ate in Porto! We tried some delicious cherry liquor in a chocolate cup, as well as port tastings with three kinds of cheese, plus meat and bread. We ended the tour with a hearty portion of francesinha and a pint of beer. We had so much delicious and tasty food, I was stuffed and feeling terrific at the end of the tour. Our guide showed us so many spots around the city, and gave us lots of insider tips.

This tour was one of the best tours I've ever taken. We learned SO much about Porto's history, culture and food and our guide Virginia was amazing. It was a very small group (just two of us) so we had a very personalized experience and were able to ask lots of questions. On the tour we tried the best Portuguese egg tarts I've ever had, port wine with cheese, a bifana (spicy pork) sandwich, codfish with an anise liquor, ginja berry liquor in a chocolate cup, and the famous francesinha sandwich. We liked the stops so much that we went back to a few of them two more times! I highly recommend this tour - it was a great introduction to Portuguese food and culture.
First of all, a lot of food! I liked it! Nice tour with born and raised person in Porto. I didn't feel like a tour, more going out with somebody you know already a very long time.
Started in a café with coffee and Nata delicious! Then on to a bar for a beer and spicy pork sandwich tasty, then to a restaurant for chorizo, croque monsieur and a glass of Vinho Verde. Not very exciting. in Porto but no Port!! The tour guide was a pleasant local young man with excellent English. He answered our questions well but didn't seem to have much to say. Only 5 in the group which was good but didn't feel we got value for money given how cheap Porto is for food and drink
