Wonderful guide, amazing food

Today we went on a food tour throughout Porto with the lovely Marlene. We have a few things we do not eat and she adjusted easily. We had the most wonderful and tasty afternoon. I've never tried sardines, and ended up loving them. There wasn't anything that was not delicious, and she added in a lot of the history of Porto on our tour. It was perfect.

Great tour and beautiful scenery!

The entire tour was wonderful. The hosts were knowledgeable, fun and engaging. The wineries were spectacular. My wife does not drink wine and they were more than accommodating to have offerings for her. The lunch was at a winery, on a beautiful outside patio and the food was wonderful. I’d highly recommend this tour and company.
