Itinerary
After meeting your guide near Bolhão Metro Station, begin your 3.5-hour small-group food and wine walking tour in Porto. Start by exploring the neighborhood of Miragaia. Hear about Porto’s delectable food heritage, as you admire stunning views of the Douro River. With your expert guide, weave your way through the myriad of tourist-free alleyways and enjoy Porto’s local ambiance.

After stretching your legs, snag a strong cup of coffee at Porto’s 200-year old cafe. For a complete Portuguese breakfast of champions, pair your java with a traditional a pastel de nata, a custard egg tartlet with caramelized top. Learn how this pastry was developed by monks in the late 17th century at the Jeronimos Monastery.

Next, hear of the mythical 1,001 different ways to prepare bacalhau, a dried and salted cod. Learn how this traditional dish can be fried, boiled, or stewed. Then, devour a savory sample.

Your Porto food and wine tour continues with even more flavorful tastings at a nearby spot. Sip or shoot a pour of the local eduardinho (cherry liquor). Then, advance your taste buds to a classic tripe and white bean stew called tripas moda do Porto. Crunch on a chamuça, a samosa-like savory pastry and enjoy a franceshina, a cured meat sandwich covered with melted cheese and a tomato and beer sauce.

Finally, lick your lips as you sip on the sweet nectar of Portugal’s Port, a renowned export. Learn how it’s exclusively produced in the Douro Valley and consumed as a digestif. Finish your glass and end your tour in central Porto.
