Great tour to get to know the Portuguese food culture! It was a lot of fun for us and we discovered many corners that we would otherwise not have found. The highlight was the hidden restaurant in the back yard!

Really enjoyed this tour, great value for money and Beatriz was a very good guide, well-informed and lively. A wide variety of food and drink too, and you won’t need dinner afterwards!
