Itinerary

Are you ready to eat your way through Porto?
Everyone knows the city is gorgeous, but did you also know that it is delicious? We’ll show you the best of Porto’s famous sights in between sampling some of Porto’s best bites. This Porto tour is one you won’t want to miss.
Throughout this Porto city tour we’ll explore some of the city’s most beautiful sights, like balconies overlooking the river, the iconic neighbourhood of Miragaia, unexplored streets and alleys, as well as popular taverns, markets, and cafes.
We’ll begin the feast that is this Porto food tour with a typically Portuguese habit: a coffee accompanied by a "pastel de Nata" (egg tart pastry), in a cafe that is more than 200 years old.
From there, we’ll taste and talk about the 1001 ways to prepare the "bacalhau" codfish, talk about the influence of our former colonies in our culture and cuisine, understand the connection we have with the river and sea, and learn about the Portuguese navigators and the tragedies Douro River.
Along the way you’ll sample local liquor “Eduardinho”  and a few  authentic local specialties like “punheta de bacalhau" (codfish) or ”tripas (tripes) à moda do Porto”; the Chamuça (samosa) and its mysterious recipe that we brought from India, including one of the most typical dishes of Porto – the Francesinha. All cafes sell it, but most aren’t very good – we’ll show you the best place in the city to get it. The secret is in the sauce, and we only go to a place that uses the original recipe. Trust us, we know where the best Porto food is at!
We’ll finish off the tour with a toast with the nectar of gods – Port wine! (Come on, we wouldn’t take you on a tour of Porto and not share our amazing Port wine with you!)
