We ended up the only two on the tour, so we had a “private” tour with Claudia Macedo. She was fantastic. It was so nice to have a guide who both grew up in the city and still lives there. She shared so much about the city, history, architecture, culture and her own memories and experiences. The restaurants for breakfast and lunch were nice, and the tastings in between were wonderful. We plan on visiting them before we leave Porto in a couple of days. But the best thing of all was Claudia herself.

My wife and I had a fantastic time on this food tour. The food and drinks were great and Thiago was an excellent host that was personable and had a ton of local knowledge and cultural insights to share. It was the perfect introduction to Porto and featured a good balance of historical information while also providing us the experience of what it is like to live like a local. We definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting! 5/5 stars.

“James” was very friendly and welcoming. He shared facts along the journey to each food stop which helped me to appreciate the city even more. He was very attentive at each stop. The food stops were a great variety of what Portugal has to offer. I would recommend this tour to others who love trying new things.

Our guide Susanna was amazing. She is very passionate and energetic and we saw a lot in the time we had. She also gave us loads of tips for things to do after the tour (and where to buy original or replicas of the porto tiles). We had a really fun time discovering Porto with her.

We really loved our visit with Renata who shared her love of Porto with us with a host of anecdotes and good addresses! A great memory of the trip and a very nice meeting. Many thanks again!
