If you are an open-minded lover of food, you’ll need to book this tour. João was an enthusiastic guide who took us to some of his favourite spots for an authentic Porto eating and drinking experience. We booked a private tour for our party of 4 and we’re given the opportunity to declare any dietary restrictions at the time of booking. These restrictions were taken into consideration to ensure everyone had a good experience. We visited 5 restaurants with food and drinks at each stop over 3.5 hours. The pace of this tour was perfect and João was an incredible host. I can’t recommend this tour enough. Also, in case you might be worried about all of the hills in Porto, don’t be. This tour was well organized to keep the routes pretty flat. João and his wife offer a number of other tours through their small company At Will Tours (https://www.atwilltours.com/tours/). Based on our experience with João on this tour, I feel confident in recommending his tour company to others. 10/10 rating.

A great sampling of food, pastries, wine and beer from places I would never find on my own. I definitely recommend this tour. Joao, the guide, was great. He was really knowledgable about Porto and Portugal and took time to point out other places of interest in Porto were of interest to me.

Amazing Tour

Our tour was great and Carlota our guide made it fantastic, her knowledge of the places and the food of the city was very enjoyable for all of us. Highly recommend this tour and if you are so lucky to have Carlota as your tour guide will be a great experience.
