Great food and great conversation

This was a lovely way to spend late a afternoon and early evening. Campo Ourique is not a district we would have seen and has a wonderful collection of food. Rodrigo was passionate engaging and knowledgeable guide. We went hungry, which is the right plan, and as we moved through the area from aperitif to dessert we learned a great deal about the food and also Portugal itself. From a food perspective it is all good but the highlights for us were the aperitif in the park, the tuna steak, the chocolate cake and a lovely pastel de nata. We chose to get a couple of glasses of wine and were helped with our choices and it was all excellent. We thoroughly recommend this tour.

Great overview of Portuguese food and history

We really enjoyed this tour with John, our guide. He was very knowledgeable about both Portuguese food and history, and was able to tie them together so we better understood how the different types of Portuguese food evolved over time. The tour is very food-centric; most of the time is spent tasting and talking about food, which is exactly what we were looking for. There is some walking from place to place but it is not primarily a walking tour.
