What you'll do

This food experience is probably the closest thing you will find to a "crash course" on Portuguese cuisine! During our Food experience you will visit 4 different restaurants/taverns in the Algarve, and taste around 10 of the most traditional dishes in Portugal.

We will take you into a journey during 3h00m on the fascinating historical and ancient part of the city, with real neighbourhoods, local history, architecture and city culture.

Our stops are places where the Portuguese go to taste, eat or drink in a relaxed environment. Perfect to be your first contact with the Algarve where we will give you all the information, knowledge and tips to discover this beautiful part of Portugal.

Other things to note:
Please advise of any food allergies. This tour is not vegetarian or vegan friendly...yet.
Dress accordingly with the weather and make sure to bring lot's of appetite and good mood:)

Where you'll be

I will be waiting by Prince Henry's statue in Praça Infante Dom Henrique.
This Prince and his ideas are one of the reasons I created this tour:)

Really great experience! Yes it might sound expensive but it is so good and worth it. Drinks (wine/beer and water) are included at each stop. I do recommend doing this experience when you first start your holiday so you have time to try out all the places suggested. You will try things you have probably never heard of and probably never again (due to it being an Algarve delicacy) so definitely do this! Thanks Luis for an incredible evening.

Maria was totally fascinating. The restaurants we visited were all places we would have walked straight past! They were all authentic and off the beaten track, with delicious food. A brilliant experience, great value for money and believe them when they say to come with an empty stomach!

Excellent Lagos Food Tour - History, great conversation and of course, great food! None of our group had any special needs but the organizers are mindful of any food allergies, so even if you have some restrictions you should give it a try. You get to see a little of Lagos' old town as you stroll from one food place to another. You will see that Portuguese food is not just bacalau (cod) and if you do have some cod, it's still good. With us was Luis and he did a great job of showing the history of Portugal through it's food.

Brilliant tour! We would highly recommend. It was just the 2 of us booked so we were lucky enough to have a private tour with Maria. She was easy-going, friendly and very knowledgeable. We tried traditional foods we never would have known about and they were all delicious! Definitely give it a go if you are in the area.

Would recommend. Maria is engaging and friendly and very knowledgable. We loved the history lessons and stories. The food was diverse, adventurous and typically Portuguese. The selection of restaurants were very different from each other and offered a varied selection of petiscos.
