Worst Food Tour Ever
Sep 2021
The highlight of most of my travels, whether international or domestic, are walking food tours. I love learning about history, culture, and tasting all sorts of different specialties of a particular region. I've been on at least 20 food tours and this was by far the worst. In fact, all 9 people in on our tour agreed. First, we received an email stating that the meeting location had been changed. 7 out of 9 people showed up to the changed location. No tour guide was there. Finally, someone on the tour was able to reach the company and we were told that the tour guide was at the original location along with 2 other tour members. So, we had to walk up all the hills and stairs of Lisbon that we had all just walked down and that took at least 10-15 minutes of huffing and puffing. No one was happy! All the tour guide said was "well, I don't know why you were all at the wrong location." Really? Because the company sent us an email telling us to go there! And 7 out of 9 people did!! So we started off more than 30 minutes late was literally a bad taste. We were given little history, if any and the tour covered a very small area. In fact, we did only 3 tastings!! Yes, 3! Never have I been on a food tour with so few tastings. And the icing on the cake?? Every tasting was cod fish. I'm not joking. Avoid this food tour at all costs.

Hello dear, We are very sorry for the disappointment on this tour. We have had a problem with changing the meeting point location due to COVID restrictions in the square where we usually are, we apologised immensely for what happened but obviously it is never enough. Some platforms from where you booked this tour were outdated and it takes time to change all on-line platforms which was the cause of the irrational meeting point. About the 3 tastings in the 3 restaurants , they are really good yes, we do have an add-on package for 5 tastings which you did not get for this tour. We cannot in our standard package include much more food due to price reasons, but obviously when you have a list of menu's you cannot complain for not having more food in the most affordable menu. Best regards and once again we apologize for the inconvenience which has been corrected already by the way

Not much of history but always an answer to questions. Good knowledge about history, wines and dishes in case of questions.
Generally good local food, wines and impression of Portugal.
Thanks for a great tour!

Great way to spend first evening in Lisbon
Feb 2020 • Couples
We enjoyed an evening with our guide David and another traveller from the USA. Great wine/ beer and great company/ discussions. The octopus salad in Lisboa 33 was the highlight of the food tastings. We still had to go for a meal afterwards as we had only had small tastes of food but this was not a problem as it extended our evening 😁

Portugal Food Tour / History!
Feb 2020 • Friends
Very informative and delicious tour with JADE. He had great stories and tips for us while we study in Lisbon for the semester. We had the opportunity to sample dishes from multiple regions of Portugal and the stories aligned well with the flavors we sampled. I’d recommend this tour especially if you are new to the city and need tips and recommendations from a local!

Jade was a very great and informative guide. I loved the backstory that he provided on the dishes which gave meaning to what we were eating and greatly enhanced the experience. On top of that the food was amazing, I highly recommend making this a part of your visit.
