Why take this tour?

Start your morning among the locals at the oldest pastry shop in Lisbon. Taste a delicious selection of homemade sweet and savory pastries while sipping a classic Portuguese-style espresso. 
Next, you’re off to the only traditional Portuguese grocery store left in Lisbon. Your guide will explain Portugal’s obsession with salt cod, and you’ll try another beloved local product: acorn-fed Iberian ham. 
Time for a drink! You’ll enjoy Lisbon’s signature sour cherry liqueur at the family-run stall that does it best.  
Your next stop is a no-frills bar serving up the best bifana (marinated pork sandwich) in the city. This buzzing bar is constantly packed with locals who can’t get enough.  
Next, it’s about time for lunch, and there’s no better place to enjoy it than among Lisboetas at a traditional Portuguese tasca. Here you’ll try home-cooked classics of Portuguese cuisine with your choice of beer or wine.  
After that, it’s time to discover one of the hidden gems of Portuguese food: gourmet canned seafood! Step into a shop just off the famous Pink Street to learn about the history of canning in Portugal and sample some delicious preserved goods for yourself. 
Last but not least, you’ll finish on a sweet note with Portugal’s most famous pastry: the pastel de nata, or custard tart. You’ll learn all about their surprising history and get an up-close look at these sweet treats being made.
