In total you will experience a well-balanced gastronomic tour of 10 different foods and 6 different beverages.

At each tasting location you will taste an important element of the cuisine of Porto and the North of Portugal. You will also learn about the families and history behind each of the restaurants, cafes, and specialty food shops that you visit. In between tasting stops you will hear about the history, architecture and culture while you walk the streets of this beautiful, UNESCO World Heritage, center.

What Is A Food Tour?

Food tours are walking tours that lead guests through a city highlighting the local history, architecture, and culture in between stops at restaurants, cafes, and specialty food shops to taste the local cuisine.

Originating in the United States, the concept has become popular in Europe with almost all European capitals and major cities providing at least one food tour, if not many.

Food tours have become a mode of exploration for some tourists, with many opting to initiate themselves into a new city with a food tour. Allowing them to experience a sampling of what the city has to offer.
