About the Activity
Everyone knows that the city is gorgeous, but did you know that it can also be delicious? We will show you the best of Porto’s famous sights and in between, you will be sampling some of Porto’s best bites. You will not want to miss this tour!

Throughout this journey we will explore some of the city’s most emblematic monuments, beautiful balconies overlooking the river, unexplored streets and alleys, as well as some popular taverns, markets, and cafés.

We will start the tastings with a traditional Portuguese pastry - “Pastel de Nata” –inside an historical café with more than 200 years old.

We will then taste and talk about the 1001 ways of cooking cod, explain the influence of the former colonies on our culture and cuisine, understand the relevant connection between the river and the sea and its economic importance, and learn about the Portuguese navigators and their adventures related to the discoveries.

Along the way you will continue to sample a few authentic local specialities like "Bolinho de Bacalhau"  (codfish cakes), the famous spicy pork sandwich, and the mind-blowing cheese and smoked meats.

We will end the tour with an outstanding Port wine cocktail, and we will make a toast in honour to our beautiful city! We would not take you on a tour in Porto without sharing our world-famous Port wine with you.
