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.

It was a great way to see the city in a short time, to have fun biking, hear the history and some interesting stories of sights and experience lemon tea and a typical desert. We had a good overview over the city and walked around later.
