Excellent
Merritt was the kindest and most knowledgeable tour guide I have ever had. Everything was delicious, especially the bifana and ginjinha. The only thing we had an issue with was the texture of the soft chicken sausage! Not used to soft sausage. However, every other dish was delicious and wonderful. We will definitely recommend wander and Merritt to anyone traveling to the area.

This was a fantastic tour. We did a morning/lunch tour, Davide was our guide and we enjoyed everything about the tour - the guide, the food, the information we received, the overall experience. We would highly recommend tours related to food and drink, and this tour with Devour was excellent.

Weve been watching James and his family on YouTube for a while, so we just had to try Devour tours for our very first food tour ever. Our tour encompassed so much more than just stopping to eat small bites here and there - we learned so much not only about the gastronomy but how it affected local culture, history and even the language. We went back to one of the places later for seconds! We were thrilled with our guide who blended our small group from 3 different continents into a warm gathering, sharing an adventure. We watch James because he is engaging, educational and entertaining - we felt those qualities throughout our experience! Obrigada!
