Great tour with delicious food and drinks. We definitely tried some things I would not have known to try on my own, and I loved that some places were just small, authentic, and original. It felt like we were going places that locals go rather than places where tourists go. Our tour guide Joao was really friendly and knowledgeable!

Awesome tour! Learned so much about local and historical food and wine info. Also visited great locations I would never experienced without having a seasoned local share them with us. Theresa was fantastic!
