Perfect evening
Before this trip. we have never been on a sailing yacht before. We totally fell in love with this experience.
We had an amazing time sailing with Mario. It's an excellent way to see the city by boat and relax.
Mario was very welcoming, he gave us many details about Lisbon, about the Portuguese culture and this made the tour even more special.
We have enjoyed a beautiful sunset as well - the evening could not have gone better.
Thanks again Mario, you deserve a golden star.
Lisbon Sailing Experience with Mário
Five stars for sure!
The tour far exceeded my expectations. The tour guide was knowledgeable, lively and very passionate about food and the neighborhood. I loved the area and different places she showed us and the food we ate. Part of our group met up again the next evening for dinner at the Mozambican restaurant. I definitely recommend the tour!

I took the market tour and cooking class with Isabel as the Chef, and Luis, an owner, as a tour guide and host. The class and tour had 3 other students, so the size was ideal. Each student had individual attention, and just enough cooking to keep us all occupied without feeling stressed. The Mercardo da Ribeira was quite the sight to behold! A huge market with fish, meat, breads, fruits vegetables, etc. The fish mongers kept everyone entertained with their knife skills. In addition, there is a giant "food court" attached to the market, where we stopped for refreshment (pastel de Nata) before heading back to the cooking school to make a delicious 4-course lunch using the ingredients we just purchased, including squid, sausage made with pork fat and flour (used in an egg dish), chicken in a pot, and potatoes, rice, tomato, and a very unique and tasty local sweet. All the while, Isabel and Luis kept us well informed of local ingredients, including the freshest fish, while Luis kept our wine glasses full of local wines. We also tried 4 types of olive oil, made in Portugal of course, and the conversation flowed very nicely. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and the food and the company, and plan to take the pastry class as soon as they are settled into their new location.

We booked the Campo de Ourique tour because we wanted something off the beaten track. We did not want to go to the usual tourist traps and learn about the things we could learn about in the guidebooks. We were not disappointed. Filipa took us to the market where we saw raw ingredients; we ate appetizers from octopus salad to game croquettes; we tasted wines; we had "the best chocolate cake in the world" (trademarked) and amazing custard pastries. The best thing about this tour was that it was done in a relaxed, unhurried, and personal manner--like old friends meeting to chat while walking around town. Filipa also gave us great information about other parts of town/restaurants/stores to visit that we followed. Here, too, we were not disappointed. We kept her map as a constant reference throughout our trip. This tour was a wonderful experience, and we were very thankful that Filipa helped us to experience Lisbon more like a native than a tourist. Do this tour first.

Local guide, local knowlege – passionate about local culture, food and history
We were lucky to have Joao take a couple of Australians to see Tapada and Mafra for a full day outing. We were picked up without fuss at out Lisbon apartment and we must say he drove very responsibly so we felt very much at ease!

As well as the main attractions Joao had some quirky little places to drop by to add to the experience.

We had a sumptuous "typical' lunch at a place we would never have tracked down ourselves. Our main aim was to see the Palace at Mafra (the name-sake of my hometown Maffra in Australia) which is a remarkable building, again with its own character and stories.

Joao had been an excellent and attentive host with broad interests and knowledge and we will look forward to more adventures, meals and story sharing with him.

I went with my father on this tour. It was amazing! For anyone who is still doubting whether they should do this tour or not: do it!! This tour shows you all the cultural aspects of the hidden treasures in Lisbon. Some history, laughs, room for questions.. And especially the food. It was really good. Really good quality! The tour operators are such sweet people. I am a vegetarian, and immediately after I booked the tour I got a mail from Pedro. He asked me what I do eat and what I don't, so they could make a menu for me. In total we got 6 different stops. They were all very unique. I'm not going to tell all the secrets, for that you should go on the tour.
Thank you, Taste of Lisboa! It was a pleasure meeting you!

I bought a market tour and cooking class for my partner as a birthday present for while we were in Lisbon and I was really pleased I made this choice. We had a really great day, seeing the market from the view of people who lived in the city and learning to cook 4 great dishes. The class was exactly the right level - we have a bit of experience cooking but never with Portuguese food and equipment, and it was a really interesting way to learn about the culture of a country. Luis was very helpful, giving us recommendations for the rest of our time away and sending us pictures and the recipies we made. Highly recommended

This tour was a great way to see Lisbon away from the usual tourist traps. Filipa, the tour guide, was a great guide and gave us loads of information an was so much fun. The tour itself took us to lots of varied places. I got to try things i never would have thought of trying or known where to go to get them. The food tasted was outstanding and i definitely left feeling satisfied. Go hungry. If you do this tour, do it at the start of your trip as you will be tempted to go back to all the places again and you can get further tip for the rest of your stay in Lisbon. Do this tour, it's amazing.

Cooking Lisbon was a fantastic introduction to Portuguese cuisine (which I knew very little about ahead of time)!

The group class took on a communal feel, which was great for a solo traveler like me. We were three individuals and two couples, and under the instruction of the chef, we shared tasks to create a four course meal, before sitting down to eat together.

We sipped wine, snacked, and learned about the recipes while creating soup, a fish dish, and meat dish and a dessert.

A great overview to Portuguese food, and now I hope to recreate at home!

This was a fabulous tour of the oldest part of Lisboa - Mouraria. I knew so little and Filipa provided me with just the right amount of history while inviting me to ask for more details whenever I wanted to know more! We walked at a casual pace and the selection of exceptional small restaurants and shops was perfect as was the food served in them! I was totally enlightened by the experience and will definitely try some of Filipa's other tours. I highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to know more about Lisboa, its food, its culture and its history.

Lovely day – light and entertaining
The market tour was interesting in a sense of learning about Portuguese domestic products, especially the different types of fish and the variety of dishes which could be cooked. It was great going cooking from fresh products and being explained the history of various Portuguese dishes while drinking wine. It was a lovely day, very light and entertaining. At the same time it was amazing learning new things in that atmosphere. The recipes were sent by email directly after class-to practice the dishes back at home and remember Lisbon!

We had some free time in Lisbon at the start of our Uniworld Duoro River cruise, so I found this food tour - Campo de Ourique Food & Cultural Tour. Filipa was our guide and it is her own business. She grew up in the Ourique area so is very knowledgeable. We enjoyed 6 varied food stops, starting and ending with a sweet which is fine by me. It was only a mile of flat walking. The indoor market is amazing & all stops unique. Who knew there was a restaurant serving just mussels & beer! I highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I did a class with my in-laws on our last night in Lisbon, and it was the perfect way to end our trip! The chef was an excellent guide as we cooked our four courses, and made it all comfortable and enjoyable. Luis and Filipe were hilarious and took care to make sure our wine glasses were full and that everyone was having a good time. We met wonderful people, prepared beautiful dishes, and learned about Portuguese culture in a way we wouldn't have been able to otherwise. It really is a blast!

We had a great time participating in a cooking class with cooking Lisbon. My husband and I booked somewhat last minute and are so happy that we had the opportunity to have this experience. We made some delicious authentic Portuguese food and drank some delicious wine! Chef Pedro was so kind and helpful in teaching us how to make each of the dishes. In addition, Filipe, one of the founders was fun and entertaining. We had such a wonderful time and would recommend this experience to anyone visiting Lisbon!

Amazing cooking class
Had an amazing night with the chef Maria! We ended up being just the two of us because two other people never showed. I got lucky because it was like a private class :) At first I thought I wasn't cooking enough I was more like an helper but Maria explained to me that portuguese food is usually made with family and everyone kind of just participate in their own way, and thought it made sense. The food we cooked was simply delicious!!! Really recommend taking this class :)

We took the Twizy for 3 hours for the Discovery tour.
We went everywhere, it was a fantastic way to visit Lisbon in an unconventional way spending less time walking and more time enjoying the attractions. The GPS tour guide was helpful as it ensured you knew what you were looking at, it's history etc.
The owners are very friendly and helpful people, even going out of their way to help us and providing local tips...

100% recommended for couples!!

Although anyone can find information reggarding Lisbon, nothing quite compares to the content you can absorb on tour. Going through picturesc neighborhoods, trying portuguese delicacies like fresh seafood, or outstanding cheese. Plus, having the locals come up to us to say hello or let our guides know about something new - what an experience! I would do it all again. Both tours - Campo de Ourique and Mouraria - are worth it!

This was a highlight of our trip to Lisbon, run by a really friendly and accommodating couple, eager to ensure that their customers have a fantastic experience. It gave us the freedom and flexibility of visiting places on our own timescale and see multiple locations in a very short space of time. Fantastic if you want to grab a few last minute photos of places you haven't been able to visit. Plus it was great fun too!!
