Here are a few things our guests
have been saying about us...

"This food tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Portugal. I can not say enough good things about Maria and Bruno. They were extremely knowledgeable, as well as, a pure pleasure to spend time with. They took us to places and exposed us to foods we could never have done on our own. They gave not only an amazing food tour, but a mini historic tour of Porto due to their deep understanding of the history. They respected our dietary restrictions when choosing the places to tour. Both my husband and I felt like we were spending the day with dear friends. If you are in Porto do NOT miss the opportunity to take a food tour with them."

"BEWARE!!! Maria and Bruno only offer a tour giving you a rare glimpse into the real culture and life of locals. If you are enjoy being led around like sheep(tourists) to places where you see other sheep(tourists), this is not for you. Let them push you a bit into trying(pig ears, aguardiente), going(local taverns), understanding(Portuguese cultures, values) a little more than you've experienced/understood before. They tailor their tours according to your preferences in order to make sure you get what you want. My only requirements to them were "places the everyday locals go to(the smaller the better) and not wanting to see any tourists." they over delivered for us. A group of 15 of us and we all felt it was like a 1:1 tour as they made sure to try and speak to all of us individually and not treat us like a herd of animals. HONEST AND PASSIONATE PEOPLE DOING GREAT THINGS."

"We spent the morning on the Sweets Tour with Maria and Bruno. They are a delightful Portuguese couple who are extremely knowledgable and enthusiastic about the local food scene. We were astonished by the vast array of beautifully prepared and tasty baked treats in Porto, and we hardly scratched the surface. We have been on many food tours around the world, from New York to Tblisi. This was, by far, the best. Highly, highly recommended. Wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring your curiosity and sweet tooth."

" Taking this food tour in Porto was like hanging out with two old friends that happen to know a bottomless amount of information about the local food culture and history. Maria and Bruno chatted with us easily as we walked from place to place pointing out different items of interest as well as culinary masterpieces. The depth of knowledge they have about the local history of Porto and of Portugal as a whole, brought a whole new depth to the tour that, I felt, was unique to this experience. The food and drink pairings were fabulous and brought an enlightened mindset to the ways cultures develop traditions that I had never experienced. If I ever return to Porto I would, without hesitation, go on a tour with them again. "

“ Our Porto food tour with Maria and Bruno was a major highlight of our 10 days in Portugal. We visited a number a great spots that we never would have found on our own and enjoyed some of the most amazing Porto cuisine. They are passionate about food and true experts. I strongly suggest booking a tour if you are visiting Porto.”

"Great food tour in Porto. Maria & Bruno were great hosts and tailored the tour to our requests, and had great knowledge about the city and it's history and food. We had a big group, but it wasn't an issue as they had relationships with all of the places we went. If you want to try some food you wouldn't have had otherwise, call Maria & Bruno, they are great."
