The Portuguese are known for their love of food and eating and gastronomic tourism is becoming an important reason for travelling to Portugal. In this tour, you will understand why and will have the chance to taste the typical Portuguese cuisine. Not only taste but also smell and hear because this tour is intended for those who want to learn more about what means Portuguese cuisine: food, wines, habits, places and so on. This means we will visit local markets in and nearby the city centre, including a typical fish market; ancient groceries; typical restaurant and bars and emblematic cafes.
Our journey begins by visiting a local fish market nearby the city centre, after we will enjoy a cup of coffee (or tea or milk) in a cafe with a sea view. Then we continue to the city centre to visit another market, groceries, emblematic places (like Majestic Café) and churches and a train station where you can admire the amazing beauty of Portuguese glazed tiles. Our journey ends at Ribeira, looking at the River Douro from one of the many cafes.
The tour includes transports from and to the hotel, a meal in one of the restaurants you previously choose and a beverage (coffee, tea or milk) in a cafe by the sea.
I live in Oporto but I used to live in Guimarães and other cities of the North of Portugal. I’m passionate about my country especially about the North. I propose to guide you through some of the most emblematic places in the North namely Oporto, the beaches in the North and also Guimarães (World Heritage). Let me show how people can fall in love, like I did, by this region of Portugal. What I propose is to see and embrace Portugal through my eyes. I’ve created 4 itineraries but I’d be more than welcome to create a tailor-made trip that suits better your expectations. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
