What you'll do

Do like Brian Chesky the Founder & CEO of Airbnb and join me on a tour!
With 18 TASTINGS, we will touch the Portuguese soul by discovering together the REAL Portuguese gastronomy in family-owned places.
With unique access and exclusive tastings we will show you how generous and diverse our food scene is.
We'll taste Portuguese wines & liquor, charcuterie, codfish & sardines recipes, typical pastries along with regional dishes from the land and sea.

We will also discover the most authentic district of Lisbon called Alfama. Filled with thousands of years of history, we’ll learn about its genuine people and its typical architecture.

OUR COMMITMENT IS ALSO SOCIAL:
- No plastic tour: we’re the 1st ones in Lisbon to have banished all kind of plastic from our experience.

- We respect local people: no more than 12 persons on our tour! We’re integrated in the local community: the grannies of Alfama love us ;-)

- We’re currently establishing a partnership with Re-food a community that works to eliminate food waste and hunger in each neighborhood of Lisbon. More info coming soon!

We’re proud to be the first Portuguese gastronomic tour of Alfama but we’re more than just a food tour, come and see by yourself.
Other things to note
*I offer my experience at 10am and 3pm or 4pm from Monday to Saturday. If the date/time you need isn't available please contact me and I will open it!*

Hi I’m Ruthy! If you book my tour you may meet me or my friends Francisco, Rita :-).
I’m 29 and I’m a real foodie.
I live in Lisbon & I'm in love with the city, its culture & its gastronomy. That’s why I’ve founded my very own 18-tastings food experience company here, called Treasures of Lisboa Food Tours & my online shop called Treasures of Lisboa Gourmet Shop.
I want to take you off the beaten paths, in Lisbon’s most narrow streets, to taste the best Portuguese dishes & drinks in authentic places. Join the fun!

Star Review: "As Ruthy's tours are very popular there are other people who have copied her. Book the "original" tour & you won't regret it. She is doing a fantastic job!"

Where you'll be

Located in the city-center & known as the historic cradle of Lisbon, the district of Alfama has kept its antiquated charm. Alfama combines the cuisine of the land and the sea. Stopping at some unique places, I will show you how to live like a real local during this walking gourmet experience! The restaurants we visit are very different one from the other, so after my experience you'll have a great overview of what our food scene is like nowadays!

This experience is one of the best things we did in Lisbon! First point: The food.. wow!! We were in Lisbon for some time and without this experience, we wouldn’t have explored the true cuisine! We were also delighted to hear the history of what we were having. Second: The sights! Glorious views and the kindest people! We learned about the culture, fun facts and also we were filled with ideas about what needs to be explored next on our future travels to Portugal. Thirdly: We felt very safe. Given the COVID situation, you might think it would be more difficult to enjoy, but forget about it! The experience allows for full enjoyment while staying safe! Also, what we liked most is that we got a complete experience, culinary and cultural, while being surrounded be the most kindest and passionate people! Finally, the cherry on top was the food we bought on Ruthy and Marcio’s website. They were kind enough to help us get the products delivered to us just in time before our soon departure from Portugal. So.. the experience continues :) Thank you again, it was delicious and delightful and no one should miss this! Hope to see you again on our future travels in Lisbon!

Ruthy was an incredible host. She is very knowledgeable on the food, history and culture of Al Fama and Lisbon. My partner and I had a wonderful time on her tour and came home full and happy.

We had a lovely time on this food tour and I definitely recommend it! We got to sample plenty of traditional food and drinks, as well as listen to fun facts and storytelling along the quaint and narrow streets of Alfama. If you can, try to do this tour at the beginning of your trip in Lisbon, as you will want to revisit some of these places again plus you learn so much about what to look out for in typical food and drink! Ruthy really loves her "job", she's a natural and so easy to get along with :) Thank you once again for this great experience! :)

I’m not normally one to write reviews - but considering I chose this tour based on the lovely reviews, I thought it only fair to contribute! Our guide was Rita and she was lovely, very personable and kind. We loved seeing the different family run restaurants in Alfama and it was a great activity to surprise my boyfriend with for the afternoon. Definitely went to quite a few places we otherwise would not have visited. Rita was v helpful and gave lots of recommendations for our trip down south along the coast.
