We had a great time on this walking food tour of Lagos with our guide Joao. We had a group of 6 people total, and 4 from our group (two couples). We've been on many food tours and they are almost always a great experience. There are differences in tours depending upon where you visit. This tour was like going with a local friend, and definitely very local. You are not going to go to the usual places, or even the typical tourist stops. Expect it to be much more hole-in-the-wall and localized which we loved. Just realize you won't be going to the shiny new restaurants but long established places that locals eat at. For us that made it special. And Joao is a funny and entertaining guy. It was a great night.

Hi there, thank you for your feedback. Food is and will always be a theme for serious debate. And we take our guests feedback very serious and have through all these years try to build a tour that meets people exceptions and at the same time gives a true feel on local gastronomy. Sometimes our guests do not enjoy the food and choice of ingredients but this is something we cannot control or change. These are all local options and they are as authentic as it gets. Usually 9 out of 10 of our guests not only enjoy the food but go back to the stops we showed them for seconds :) Stay safe and bon appétit. Warm regards, Luís

Joao our guide was friendly and interacted with each member of our group of 8. The tour went to 4 bars/restaurants inside and outside the old walls of Lagos and there was a lot of emphasis on fish, not surprisingly at a seaside location, many of which were new to us. It was very enjoyable. Only small criticism we had was we would have liked a bit more history and local info as we moved around, but overall a very nice tour.

Maria was an excellent tour guide, who took us to places we, as tourists, wouldn’t have visited ourselves. She could explain everything about the food, the traditions, the wines, and some background information about Lagos and the Portuguese. We highly recommend this tour.

We met Pete to start our nine person tour (we were a family of 5) and he immediately provided us with interesting historical information that got us acclimated to the area before going to our first stop. Each of the places that we visited were unique and provided us with a sense of the different food and wines/beer available in the region. Pete was highly knowledgeable on the foods and did an excellent job in engaging everyone within our group. I would be happy to revisit any of the restaurants that we stopped at as the owners/staff were very friendly throughout the process.

The tour guide Pete was outstanding, the food was very typical Portuguese cuisine, as expected. Nice representation of the variety there. A little disappointed with the wines but can’t fault anyone for that. The price was a bit high but the whole experience was worth it. Definitely recommended.

Just had a great tour last night. Our guide, Pete was very knowledgeable about the area, history and he could explain in detail everything we tried. Make sure you go hungry. It was a lot of food. I’m gluten-free and there was only one small dish I had to skip, the rest was either fine or easily adapted. There were 9 people in the tour and it was a very sociable group. As we’re here for awhile yet, Pete gave us a list of other restaurants to try

This foodie experience was well done and tied into local haunts rather than your tourist spots. Excellent seafood, fish, and new ways of using the same ingredients.
