We had an incredible experience on the Traditional Food Tour in Lisbon, and it exceeded all our expectations. Our guide, Borja, was simply amazing throughout the entire journey. Borja's knowledge and passion for Portuguese cuisine truly shone through as he guided us through the bustling streets of Lisbon, sharing insights and stories about each dish we encountered. It was not just a food tour but a cultural immersion that left us with a deeper appreciation for Portuguese gastronomy. Overall, the Traditional Food Tour was an unforgettable experience, thanks to Borja's exceptional guidance and the delicious array of dishes we indulged in. We highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore the vibrant food scene of Lisbon.

Another great experience with a Devour Walks & Tasting tour ! Over last few years have tried their offerings in Madrid, Barcelona and now Lisboa. Their choices of sites, restaurants, tastings and even meals have been excellent. For sure, add drinks to your package. On this Taste & Traditions of Lisboa tour, our guide Borja was a true pro. Informed us of local history and customs, passed on little idioms about locations and foods to be tasted and helped our small group of different travelers be involved and have a camaraderie together. Will definitely look for others next trip and might even redo the same. Tour stops vary based on times.

Hands down one of the best food tours we have taken. Davide was an absolute delight. Full of so much knowledge and enthusiasm. Days later and we are still talking and drooling over the food we sampled. We thought it was a great way to experience the city and learn about its history and food.
