Rain or shine (and we had rain), this is a perfect way to learn and experience a new culture through its food/drink. We loved this tour! Mariana was so knowledgeable and personable and taught us so much about Porto, Portugal, and the foods/drinks that this town is known for. Even our 4 young children (ages 10-6) loved it.

We had an amazing time! It was just the guide and the two of us (she said the tour runs even if there is only one guest). There were five stops: 1) coffee and cake, 2) bifana and beer, 3) codfish cake and green wine, 4) cheese, bread, meats and port, 5) Port tasting. This tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Portugal and I would definitely recommend it.

We would recommend Adam to anyone. He was knowledgeable and very friendly. Also, he was extremely well versed in the Japanese culture. The art of soap and staring.

Having arrived in Porto the night before and not having had a chance to get our bearings, let alone taste any local food, this was an excellent start to our 3 days break. Adam, our guide, was superb. We were a group of 4 (an American couple and ourselves - British). He talked us through, not only the local food, port and wine, but local history too (a bonus). We visited several interesting "hidden away" eateries/delis that we wouldn't have found ourselves and although it was only 3 hours, we gained a lot of useful info! Also, it's not a hard trek at all, not a huge amount of walking. Highly recommend!

The tour guide was excellent, a local with real life experience on the subject. We visited a coffee shop, a deli, 2 cafes, and a port wine bar. We really enjoyed this tour.

Our organized food and wine tour through the streets of Porto Portugal with Adam as our official tour guide was a great way to experience the people food and lifestyles of this wonderful City. Adam was informative fun lighthearted and attentive. His knowledge of Porto bought the city alive.

Great morning with Filipa our guide who took us for tastings, snacks and lunch in town at various places as we learned along the way. A nice way to fill a few hours and try some food and drink with the help of a local person.

So glad we booked this tour for the start of our trip! Our guide was highly knowledgeable about Porto (born and raised there) and gave us some great tips for our stay there.

We had an exceptional guide who was extremely knowledgeable about the food and Porto wine. We felt he went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and if we needed anything else he would do what he could to accommodate us. In addition, we had a great time with the people in our group. We are super happy we signed up for this tour!

First of all I want to say that our tour guide Vania Oliveira is by far the best tour guide I have ever had. Not only do I love the City of Porto but Vania made sure that we knew the entire history of Porto and Portugal and she treated us like family. Even though I have been to Porto twice, I will definitely buy this tour again. I hope that someone at Viator or the tour company awards Vania for her excellence and amazing character.

This was a small group tour which is always the best to do. A much better experience. There were six of us starting at a little coffee shop Every stop we made, we learned a little more about the culture and the food. We ended at a little port place and had port tastings All in all a great experience.

Our guide Sara was fun and knowledgeable ... great food and wine experience.
• Submitted 04 Jul 2018
Loved the afternoon small group gourmet food and wine tour with Sara and to see Porto through her eyes. From the food tasting of coffee and nata, to the marketplace which is sadly closing down for a renovation that will hopefully reopen again, so the locals can continue to make a livelihood. Cheeses and cured meats, to spicy pulled pork, quail and codfish cakes. Plus the ports including white and ruby. Meeting people from around the world was also another highlight of the tour, sharing insights into what makes us similar, yet different and sharing an experience where I made new friends. Thoroughly recommend the tour and Sara.

We had a really great time on this tour. First of all, they broke a large group into two smaller ones so we could all participate on a more personal level. Good call. The selection of stops I felt were well thought out, focusing on the smaller and more authentic experiences. There was plenty of food for everyone, and excellent historical and cultural references to their origins and traditions. Great job, Sara. Obrigada!
