We had a most enjoyable, informative, and delicious tour with our wonderful guide Rita Jardim--she was extremely knowledgable about everything, from the food we sampled and the businesses we visited, to many historical facts and anecdotes about Lisbon and Portugese culture. Truly a ten-out-of ten experience!

The food was varied and delicious and even though we are pescatarians we always felt cared for. Rita made the tour extra special as she is a knowledgeable and well spoken guide. The walking was not a problem and gave us the opportunity to see more of the beautiful city of Lisbon.

Goncalo was a superb guide. He was very good at explaining everything and capable of answering questions that we had. We have been to Lisbon many times before, so the foods were familiar, but he took us to the best for each food/beverage. We would highly recommend the tour, whether it is your first time in Lisboa, or you have been tthere before. Looking forward to doing more devour tours in other cities/countries.
