My wife and I decided to book this tour at the last minute, and their web site said nothing was available. But I decided to call, and Joana called me back quickly to let me know they had availability for this tour on the next day. So call even if the web site says there is no availability.

We met Antonio promptly at 4:30PM and proceeded to receive a short walking tour of the Old Town walls and surround area. (Be aware that there are several steps/stairs involved, though Antonio might have had a plan if we had had anyone with limited mobility.) From there, we walked to the first venue, and let the eating and drinking begin! We visited five sites in total, sampled at least ten different dishes and five different drinks (beer, several wines, and a finishing cocktail). In many cases, the food was traditional Algarvian and not necessarily on the restaurants' regular menus. The tour group was ten in total, all English speaking. We finished just before 10PM.

My wife and I loved the tour and food. Antonio was a gracious and informative host. We will definitely consider doing another tour in the future.

Dear Mark, let me thank you for taking the time to write such a review about our Old City Food & Cultural Tour, in Faro, last week. You did well to call us in advance, as our website is set to accept bookings only 48 hours before the activity is chosen. But there are situations, like yours, where we are still able to accept bookings with 1 day before the date. Thank you for calling us! We also take pleasure to accommodate everyone´s needs as best as we can, and we are grateful you share that info. This is a tour with plenty to drink and eat, plus with a lot of historical insights!
Thank you once again, and hope to guide you and your partner at another opportunity!
Your new friend,
- António

A fantastic tour provided by a professional guide and team.
Our guide Antonio was passionate, knowledgeable and friendly.
We got to visit places that the general public dont get the privilege to see. We got to taste food that's not normally on a menu, that was superb. The wine was exceptional too!
All round the trip was fantastic and the time just flew by! Cant recommend it enough!
Well done to the great team! 20 out of 10!

Me and my husband went on the Old City Food Tour in Faro and loved it. Our tour guide António was enthusiastic, super friendly, knowledgeable and genuinely passionate about the Algarve - he really brought its history to life. As well as tasting some delicious local food and wine in restaurants we would never have found otherwise, we learned a lot about the history and culture of the beautiful city of Faro. It was a lot of fun too, there was a real mix of people in our group to chat to. We will definitely be trying out the other tours on our next trip to the Algarve. Great value and lots of fun!

Dear Liz, good to hear from you! This review is very sweet from you, so let me thank you for taking the time to do it. Our group that day was a beautiful mix of nationalities and perspectives. I am really lucky to meet amazing people like you all, and to seat at different tables and engaging in vivid conversations about food, drink. Well, it´s a true privilege! We will be ready to welcome you and your husband to make another funny and tasty tour!

We did the Med Food Tour this week with Joana in Loule. It was truely a pleasure and the 5 hour- tour went by so quickly. Our guide Joana was kind, knowledgeable, entertaining and enthusiastic. You could feeld her passion about the region, the culture and the food every step by the way. We did learn a lot about the city and why certain foods are so typical for the region. And of course we tasted a lot of different foods and drinks. We would highly recommend the Med Food Tour in Loule and would have loved to do another tour with Joana if only our vacation would have been longer as it was one of our highlights of our week in Portugal.
