Every place we visited was priced for and full of locals. The tour guide is full of knowledge and makes the activity even more fun. Definitely recommend Devour Tours for the authentic experience.

Devour Tours are by far the best food/walking tours I've been on. In Lisbon we had Rita as our guide and she was absolutely terrific with a great knowledge of food and history. She was great fun too. She took us to wonderful shops, restaurants and cafes that we'd never have found otherwise. The food was top quality. If you're in Lisbon for a few days search her out and go at the start of your holiday so you know where to go for the rest of your visit.

Highly recommend this tour! I did this on my first day in Lisbon, great way to get orientated with history and culture through food. Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly, and all the food was well worth it !

The tour was exceptional! The guide (Conzalles) had grown up in Lisbon and as a result was extremely informative, not only about food, but also about the culture, history and traditions. The food and drinks that we were provided were all very enjoyable. We opted for the full drinks upgrade and would recommend it as it offered a few additional local tastes. The route was well thought out reducing the amount of uphill walking required. An overall fabulous experience that will look to repeat in other locations where Devour Tours are offered!
