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 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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

The tour was just fine, well planned and executed - and Rosa knew a lot about both cultural, history and food. A pleasure for sure.
