Friendly, knowledgeable guide and variety of locations from old to modern. Limited time needed for walking aspect leaving plenty of time for the food and drink part1 The order slightly odd starting with pastry (pastel de nata) and coffee followed by savoury items at subsequent locations but that's a very minor quibble, and ends with very interesting port/wine sampling. The whole tour had a quite relaxed feel making it relaxing for us punters!

as the other reviewers already mentioned, it is a very food and drink heavy walking tour. we walked what felt like 50m between the first stops. nevertheless we had a great guide and very good food from local shops. also a very small group (8pax)!

Visited some great local businesses and all the food and wine was delicious. Our guide Sofia was great. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. Also the group size was small which made it a really enjoyable experience.

What an amazing experience! My wife and I had so much fun walking around, learning about Porto, and tasting all the different dishes. I had a friendly, fun group and our guide was great!

Teresa was a fabulous food and wine tour guide. We felt like we go to see the real Porto through food and drink. Very highly recommended!
