Would you like a private tour?

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. Learn why the locals have this nickname while enjoying a 'moscatel galego' along with some traditional sardines and a homemade pastry.

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.


One of Porto's historic cafes, world renowned for its beauty. Guarany opened its doors in 1933 in the heart of downtown Porto, a place where business men, artists and politicians used to meet for a 'cimbalino'.

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.
