Full description
Avoid a touristy version of Portuguese food and connect with Oporto on a deeper level on this tour. Become aware of what you are tasting with the help of a professional local guide, and experience the food that most residents eat and are very proud to share. This Oporto food experience is meticulously designed to highlight three things: the delightfulness of the food; the richness of Portuguese food history and gastronomic culture; and the local people who prepare or serve it. During your tour, your guide will provide you with the proper social and cultural context, as well as the history of what you're eating. Savor traditional foods like francesinha (a type of sandwich covered in sauce), pataniscas (codfish balls), and typical pastries while getting to know some Portuguese wines and a delicious craft beer. Bring comfortable shoes and an appetite: You're about to relate to Oporto in an entirely new way. As you go, explore the city center and end the tour in the Ribeira Quarter with a wine tasting. Sit and enjoy the end of the afternoon peacefully watching the sunset over the Douro River.
