Absolutely not! Our tours combine architectural commentary, historical facts, local culture and culinary insight into a unique 3.5-hour experience. Imagine walking through Porto eating our local artisans’ most delicious foods while learning the neighborhoods from real locals.

Yes, children are allowed on the tour. However, we ask you to use your judgment to determine if the tour is appropriate for them. Please take into consideration that the tour is 3.5 hours long during which time we are either walking or standing for the majority of it.

The tour is 3.5 hours and covers 2 miles/3 km which we walk at a moderate pace. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to sit down at least at three of the tasting locations for about a total of 40 minutes during the tour.
Tours are held rain or shine. That’s how much we love the food! We ask you to check the weather before hand and dress appropriately. And don’t worry, tasting will occur indoors if needed as things don’t taste as good soggy.
Yes, bathrooms are available during the tour at selected food-tasting locations.
Due to steep inclines, ancient, cobblestone streets and inaccessibility of the tasting locations, the tour is not wheelchair nor baby stroller accessible.
In total, the tour covers 3 kilometers/1.9 miles. However, this is walked at a leisurely pace over the course of 3.5 hours. During the tour we have 6 stops and at least 3 of them will have opportunities for everyone to sit down and rest a bit while eating. By far the longest distance from one sitting point to the next is during the second half of the tour and it is a stretch of 1.2 kilometers that we walk in about 40 to 45 minutes. This is not a straight walk, as we do have one tasting stop, which is standing, and three points were we pause for some historical explanation and picture taking. That said, please allow us to offer an overall warning for the city. Porto is a medieval city with cobblestone streets and can be hilly in places. At Taste Porto Food Tours we do our best to accommodate all of our guests and have designed our tour to be accessible to people of all ages and mobility levels.
We absolutely do! We can accommodate a variety of special requests (family reunions, birthday parties, out of town guests, corporate and more) with our Private Tours.
Just bear in mind we have limitations in terms of group size. Contact us to talk more about this possibility.
