Bookings:

1. When is the best time to take part in a Food Tour during my stay?

We recommend that you book your Food Tour with us at the beginning of your stay. This will allow you to get your bearings around the city, and gives you the perfect opportunity to go back to the places you enjoyed the most during our tour.

2. How do I book a Food Tour?

To book a tour, go to the ‘Book now’ page of our site by clicking here. Once you’ve made the order through our secure website, an automatic confirmation of the reservation will be sent to your e-mail address.

The confirmation e-mail includes:

  • The details of your reservation (price, date, and time of the Food Tour)
  • Directions to the meeting point where you will meet our local guide.

You will receive a reminder e-mail the day before the Food Tour. It will not be necessary to present your reservation on the day of the visit- our guide will already have a list of all the participants.

3. Is it possible to attend a Food Tour without prior booking?

If you have food allergies (e.g. milk, eggs) or if you follow a particular diet (e.g. diabetic), it is still possible for you to attend our Food Tours. Be careful though -you will need to tell us this information when booking on our site so that we can adapt the tastings for you.

If you are vegetarian, it is still possible to attend our Food Tours. Again, be careful though – you will need to tell us this information when booking on our site so that we can adapt the tastings for you.

However, if you follow a vegan diet, it will not be possible to attend our Food Tours. Portuguese cuisine is predominantly based on meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products and is thus not compatible with a vegan diet.
