About
This is the ultimate food and history tour that will bring Porto's story alive through your stomach! In Portugal people love to eat, the culture is based on eating, and even the historical stories sparked ideas to its best dishes! So, the best way to discover ii is would be through eating along! We will visit the best landmarks of Porto, understand the history of this wonderful city through its art, music, architecture and mostly FOOD. Oh, you will learn so much… Who's the famous architect buried (somewhere) inside his own masterpiece, and why is there a cookie related with climbing it? Who is the king who gave his heart to the city of Porto and why do the people eat the visceral parts of the animal? How did the Jewish people hide their religion through a certain dish during the inquisition? Who is this little French girl who can, potentially, cause you a heart attack? And how does Harry Potter relate to all of this? Come hungry because I have a lot to tell you!

Captivating and tasty

Karin certainly knows Porto, and the tour was a mixture of historical insights and tasty bites. Karin is a doctoral student stydying Portugese art, so I especially enjoyed her comments on Fado. An unforgettable experience!

What a fantastic experience.

Where to begin? Karin's tour was a fantastic experience. She is very knowledgeable. She knows food. Must of all, she is incredibly fun to be with. The connection was instant, and we pretty much forgot it was raining, even though it most definitely was. It didn't matter.
This tour is not to be missed. We didn't want it to end.

Karin is a joy to tour with! Knowledgeable, funny, entertaining. We enjoyed the tour very much and learned so much more than we would have on our own. She has a unique way of pairing food with history and is passionate about it with excellent results. We had a great time and highly recommend her tour.

warm recommendation!
Sep 2019 • Family
We arrived in Porto without knowing the place at all. We were looking for someone local who knows the place from the inside, with an emphasis on special places and good restaurants. We found Karin and her team, who were just lovely and opened up a whole world we didn't know. Super-interesting, instructive, engaging, artistic, and very tasty! Definitely recommend to anyone who wants to see the "real" Porto!
