About
We were born, raised and always lived in Porto, so we know the city as a local and, since it is a private tour, we will customize it according to your interests. In this private food/wine tour we will focus on Portuguese gastronomy, but you will learn a lot about our culture, pronunciation and behavior, which makes us unique. You will visit the temporary Bolhão market and several food spots and tascas (traditional stores), while get in contact with the locals. You will get to know the stories behind these dishes: the legend of the "tripeiros", name given to the porto inhabitants; you will learn how "francesinha" is made, that "caloric bomb" that you should not miss and the tasty codfish recipes, so important in our culture. You will discover the Portuguese wines with its diverse grapes and wine regions and will taste some delicacies. And what about our sweets, like pastel de nata, doces de ovos,...? Enjoy more! Experience more!

We thoroughly enjoyed our food tour in Porto with João. He provided insight into the culture and development of the area, along with a wonderful sampling of a variety of food and drinks. He was friendly and knowledgable, and accommodated us with several stops along the tour for us to explore shops and sights we were interested in. I highly recommend Oporto & Douro Moments.

My wife and I did the food tour with Sara. She was excellent. Life long resident of the area who was able to provide great perspective on the food, culture and ongoing development of the city. As we had not had a chance yet to explore the city, Sara adapted the tour on the fly to show us some of the historical sites and make recommendations on what to come back to see. Bring your walking shoes.

My husband and I booked a wine tour with Rui during our stay in Douro. We were staying outside of the two main towns, so we had to book a private tour.
We visited two wineries, had lunch and visited the town of Pinhao.
Rui was such a great tour guide, very knowledgeable and a great conversationalist!
We thoroughly enjoyed our day. I would recommend if you do not have a car and you want to explore the area and taste some wine!

Sara customized our tour to allow for half walking and half driving. It has not rained much in Porto but we happened to hit it on a day it did not stop drizzling. Nevertheless, Sara took us through the streets of Porto regaling us with stories and history. Everywhere we stopped we were greeted with a smile and something to eat and drink. From the market and green wine with sardines (canned this time of year), to the francesinha (little french woman) we covered the highlights of the city.
Sara keeps everything light and entertaining. The time passed all too quickly but it was delightful.

Sara met us at the designated spot the Porto Train Station and proceeded to explain the history of the station and the tiles adorning it. We then began our walk around Porto by stopping into a restaurant for lunch, a traditional pork sandwich for my friend and a salad for me as I am not a meat eater and of course a local beer. After which Sara began introducing us to more local foods including cheese, bread, wine, port, coffee, Pasteis de nata (dessert) and last but not least an olive oil tasting with an Olive Oil sommelier.
Our tour which began at 2:30 was scheduled to last 3 hours. Before we knew it, it was after 7 when Sara dropped us back at the train station.
Dinner that night was a mix of leftover treats which we happily enjoyed at our hotel with another glass of wine.
A perfect way to learn about Porto and Portugal is to experience a Food tour with Sara.

Sara was very accommodating in arranging a later start for our tour as our son's flight delays resulted in a very late night. Sarah met us at our accommodation and we quickly warmed to this charming, knowledgable and energetic woman. Our walking tour of Porto's food highlights was wonderful. As we walked to each of our destinations Sara explained the history of the city and answered all our questions about Portugal, Porto and Portuguese cuisine. Her English is excellent and her easy manner and flexibility made the hours fly by. Our walking tour with Sara was the perfect way to familiarize ourselves with this lovely city while enjoying so many of Porto's culinary delights. We couldn't have asked for a better guide or a better start to our time in Porto. We highly recommend the Porto Food Tour with Oporto & Douro Moments. Just make sure you go hungry!
