Beyond the tourist attractions
Food tours allow you to see the city through the knowledge and taste of the locals. Not only do they include food and drink, but also insight into the city’s history, culture, architecture, and local life.
Taste of Porto
Taste of Porto offers a walk through the real Porto with food-loving locals who are passionate about their city. You will end the tour with a greater appreciation for Porto and for Portugal.
The food tour is best taken at the start of your trip to Porto, as you will be given recommendations for eateries for the duration of your stay. Plus, you will definitely be going back to the food stops for more to eat and drink.
The downtown walking tour covers history, cuisine, and local traditions. There is nothing obvious and there are no tourist traps.
What to Expect
