Excellent tour! Jamie was a fantastic guide - very knowledgeable and passionately supportive of his Portugal. His enthusiasm was infectious. The tour also visits or passes by many of our must-see places in Lisbon, so ticked a lot of boxes there too. Would highly recommend this and other Devour Tours - they always give a wonderful introduction to a city thru it’s food.
