Going on a guided tour through the city you’re visiting is one of the best and less tiring ways to discover what it truly has to offer. If you’re not very good at making your own itineraries or don’t have enough time to research what you want to visit or try, guided tours are definitely essential. But if you’re a foodie, the best tours you could ever choose to be part of are food tours. On this kind of tour, you are guided to restaurants, street food stalls or pubs, and you are taught about the culinary culture of the city you’re visiting and even get to see some of the places tourists often miss.

Lucky for you, Lisbon is full of different options for food tours, mainly because it’s a Portuguese city and Portugal means great food. Of course, if you haven’t been to Portugal before, there is no way you could possibly know its food until you try it. That’s why a food tour is so useful: it will introduce you to the main flavors of the country and maybe even to the less known ones. Lisbon has some of the best and most original food tours, where you can experience the Portuguese cuisine in style. Are you ready to make some decisions? Here’s our top 10 best food tours in Lisbon:

5. Lisbon Food Tour - Portuguese Tapas and Port Wine


You thought tapas was exclusive to the Spanish cuisine? Well, you’re not wrong, but you’re not right either. Portuguese call their tapas ‘petiscos’, meaning small samples of food, from cheese on toast to salads. But it’s easier to say 'tapas’ than 'petiscos’, so no one will be offended if you ask for tapas at a Portuguese bar (hopefully). This food tour will take you on a journey through the best Portuguese 'petiscos’ and you’ll get to taste them whilst sipping the famous Port wine. You’ll be able to explore Mouraria neighborhood and learn about its history before you stop at one of the six eateries your guide will take you to. Doesn’t it sound perfect?
