Loja dos Pastéis de Chaves
The day begins near Bolhão market with the warm flaky pastry of Chaves, a small city in northern Portugal. A savory and sweet tasting that will provide you with the energy and curiosity to start your exploration of Porto.
Bolhão Wine House
Bolhão Market is a truly unique and magical place for tripeiros. Come and get to know why we got this nickname while enjoying a 'moscatel galego' along with some traditional sardines and a homemade pastry
Café Christina
Since 1804 Café Christina has provided Porto with the caffeine needed to start its day. Enjoy the subtle hints of the in-house blend, find out the coffee order to place to make you sound like a local, and take a sneak peek behind the curtain.
Flor dos Congregados
Upon entering this third generation, family-run restaurant, the smells of a home-cooked meal fill the air. Enjoy this one-of-a-kind sandwich that brings together freshly baked bread, juicy pork loin roasted in spices, with the sweetness of cured ham.
Leitaria da Quinta do Paço
In life, as on the tour, we can't enjoy the savory without the sweet. And so Leitaria provides us with a sweet counter point on our tour through its famous eclairs. Enjoy the light, fluffiness of the cream and sweetness of the chocolate.
Taberna do Largo
Portugal has far more to offer than just Port wine which is why we end our tour with a final taste of the various wine regions of the country. Explore from north to south the little known beauty of Portuguese wines, cheese, sausages and 'petiscos' with products from small local producers.
