This was a great tour to take. They kept it small for us, we were a group of 4 and they had 2 more people join us. Our tour guide Ruth was spectacular. She was super knowledgeable and helpful. She really made the tour for us. Definitely worth taking the tour and we would recommend!

Raquel was delightful and very passionate about Portugal. Her knowledge was deep and she was generous in sharing interesting facts about her country. The tour was both fun and interesting.

We had an amazing time with lovely Ruth visiting 7 iconic Portuguese eateries we wouldn’t have found in our own and learning about the history and culture of Lisbon. It was a fabulous time, and we highly recommend.

I just took the Lisbon Food Tour offered by Devour Tours and it was AMAZING! Our guide Gonzalo was great, took us to wonderful places that are iconic in the local scene. The big plus with taking this tour is that you don't have to wait in line to get in some of those places (since they are so popular) but also they have table waiting for the tour. Highly recommended. Lisbon is a wonderful gastronomical destination.
