Eating Porto Like a Local

Nestled among the hills at the mouth of the Douro River, Porto welcomes visitors looking for history, culture, amazing food and a good glass of port wine. From tasty petiscos and amazing wine to delectable sweet treats, Porto has no shortage of culinary delights waiting for you to try. Join us on a food tour in Porto to savor the traditional foods and dishes at the city’s beloved cafés and markets, and taste regional delights like sweet custard tarts, and savory classics like a ‘bolinho de bacalhau’ codfish. On our food tours in Porto, you’ll taste northern Portugal’s world-renowned Port wine and learn its history and cultural impact. Most Porto visitors only explore the wine caves along the riverside, but our local food tour guides also take you to unusual and undiscovered food shops, far off  the beaten path, so you can get a real taste of local life in Porto.

We had a great food tour! We ate at four different locations and were also given a desert. My favorite food was the green soup from Conga which was delicious. Diogo did a wonderful job explaining the food and the history of Porto! I highly recommend this tour.

Wonderful tour! Sara was a wonderful hostess and full of great stories. We explored areas of the city that we hadn't seen and got to enjoy the sights and holiday lights along the way. Love that the focus was on family-run restaurants that are local favourites, really felt like we got to sample the best food and drink in Porta--and I can confirm that the presunto we had with Sara was way better than anything we tried in Lisbon ;) We left the tour absolutely stuffed, such a fabulous night!

Yum! Yum! Yum! We had the most wonderful experience on the progressive dinner! Sara, our guide, was outstanding. She gave a personal flair to our night! She is so enthusiastic about her love for Porto and passed it on to our small group. It was the perfect opportunity to try traditional Portugese food and drink. This, along with the history of the area and what we were eating, made for a great evening

Beatriz, our guide, was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about the Port Wine Company and it’s production.
We enjoyed seeing the private collection of old port and the lovely port tasting room.
She brought us to excellent restaurants to sample Portuguese food paired with coffee and alcoholic drinks.
We finished off by looking at the dhows on the river.
Beatriz pointed out and explained many other aspects of historical interest, she was enthusiastic and fun. We would definitely recommend a tour with her as your guide.

We had a really nice and very personal tour through the not so touristy part of Porto Vila Nova de Gaia.
Even the meeting point invited us to marvel at the view. Our guide, Sara, did her job really well. We got a lot of information about the surroundings, the food locations and of course about the typical specialities we were allowed to try. The highlight for us was the tour through a port wine cellar and the following tasting. Sara made the experience very special with her personal stories. We can definitely recommend this tour and would do it again anytime.

I love Eating Europe because I expect a next level food tour. Beatriz and Diogo made this an immersive, unforgettable experience. The port wine cellar tour was led by Diogo, and his expertise and inside knowledge of the cellar we visited made this special and very informative.

Beatriz led us on a food journey far removed from the tourists, which is exactly what I was hoping for. The places chosen for the tour are well thought out, and we were well received. If you're wondering, you won't leave the tour hungry. Excellent by all accounts and would highly recommend.

Gonçalo, we had a great time and would recommend to anyone. The walking is easy and the food and insight is great. He has lots of stories and made the tour very fun. We had a 17 year old along and he had a great time. Lots of history too, not just food.

Great tour! Beatriz was absolutely gorgeous! I liked that everything was in non-touristic area, very local places, where you would hardly go by yourself. And we tried the food that you would not order by yourself. The winery, OMG, was something stunning! Who loves wine would live this tour.

Sara C. led my wife and I on a fantastic "Eating Europe" tour of the Porto area, specifically the Vila Nova De Gaia area cross the river from Porto itself. This was our second "Eating Europe" tour after one we did in Lisbon and we can safely say this is a great tour company to book with if you're looking for a great way to see Europe.

This is great as it is far less crowded than Porto, but Vila Nova De Gaia itself is the actual home of port wine production.

We were treated to some great local food as well as a port wine tasting at Royal Oporto Wine Company, or "Real Companhia Velha" in Portugese/in actuality.

Sara C. herself was a wonderful tour guide, we enjoyed her a lot - yes, she spoke perfect English and she was knowledgeable and a great guide, but mostly because she was great person to talk to and learn more about Portugese culture, to to share cultural differences and similarities.

Beatriz and Gonçalo were our guides for a recent Eating Europe progressive dinner tour in Porto and it was absolutely fantastic! Her knowledge of the history of Portugal and the background on each of 5 meals was extensive but not so in depth to be boring. She knew when to go into depth on a particular topic, and when to share only minor details, which is quite a skill. The beverage pairing with each meal was well done and tasty. We highly recommend this tour, and you will be fortunate to get either of these guides.

Had a tour with Beatriz which was excellent.
She had to show 12 older men and one young man the food delights of Porto!
She was full of vim and vigour and knowledge but also a wonderful host.
We were mightily impressed.
Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
