Tour by Rita

I’m Rita, a PR professional, a city girl and now a mommy, but still young and wild at heart!

For the last 7 years I’ve been showing visitors Lisbon from my perspective, and have made many friends along the way.

I take my guests to local markets to buy fresh produce for dinner, my favourite secret beaches, a winery owned by friends, and partying Lisbon-style! I also love to cook, and regularly host dinners at my place with a friend who’s a chef.

If you stick with me, you’ll probably end up at a show or a party with my friends and family!

I’m also an expert in the perfect caipirinha…

We would like you to live the experience of a true Lisbon' market as a local and take some of the unique concepts of the traditional Portuguese cuisine and the way Portuguese really live it, how they eat and how they cook. The are two rituals truly unmatched by any other culture, except maybe the Italian, where everything we do in life is centered around food.

So first, you will meet up with Rita that will take you to her favorite traditional market (Arroios), where she grew up and knows all the tricks of the very best food stands around. After she will take you to a renewed market, the new generation markets, in the neighboorhood where she lives now (Campo de Ourique). She offers not only the perspective of the markets but some interesting points on the neighborhoods where they are settled.

Then you will meet up with Carol in a local restaurant, where she will give you unique insights on how to cook traditional Portuguese food, it's smells and flavours.

She is a teacher in one of the best Culinary Schools of Portugal, so she knows what she is doing. With wine in the mix, let's now cook and eat!

Rita was a great
for Rita
Rita delivered exactly what I wanted
for Rita
Rita was friendly, engaging, knowledgeable and went out of her way to ensure that I had the experience I was after.

This was without a doubt the highlight of my trip.
Warm and welcoming; tasty pastry
Our host Rita was knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. Her insight of local customs, shops, and cuisine helped my family feel more at home during our stay in the charming Campo de Ourique neighborhood of Lisbon. Her co-host Carol has a talent for both baking and instruction, and I am grateful to have learned some specific techniques for making traditional Portuguese pastry. My daughter especially enjoyed helping and my husband especially enjoyed eating!
