The Old City Food & Cultural Tour, in Faro delivers on all it promises and then more. A friend and I enjoyed a fabulous evening in Faro with Antonio and his other guests on the tour.
Thanks to our informed and convivial host we discovered a lot of history in hidden spaces and enjoyed the hospitality of restaurants we might not have otherwise found. I have rarely felt so welcomed to share in food and wine offerings of a city.
One of the joys our time in the Algarve was taking part in this special experience and laughing our way through some hours with friendly and like minded foodie folk. Felicidades...

The tour was a great way to spend to spend 5 hours in beautiful Faro. Our guide, Antonio was extremely knowledgable and during our tour we had access to areas not available to the public. We walked round some of the remaining city wall that was within a private property and also went down to the tunnels under one of the restaurants we visited. We also went up to the bell tower of the cathedral. The food was first rate and included a number of off menu dishes. The wine choices were also fabulous. All in all the tour was great value for money given the amount of food and drink we both enjoyed. I would highly recommend taking a tour with Antonio around the old city!

Dear Melanie, let me thank you for taking the time to write your review. Our Old City Food & Cultural Tour, in Faro, is in fact a food & drink marathon of 5 hours, as you well said. I love to share tastings that are part of my favourite items in my diet, not only food but drink as well. We feel honoured when you recognize the great value for money for the number of tastings you had. And thank you once again for recommending our tours with everyone!

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,
