Hi I’m Ruthy! If you book my tour you may meet me or my friends Francisco, Rita & Marianne! :-)
I’m 29 and I’m a real foodie.
I live in Lisbon & I'm in love with the city, its culture & its gastronomy. That’s why I’ve founded my very own 18-tastings food experience company here, called Treasures of Lisboa.
I want to take you off the beaten paths, in Lisbon’s most narrow streets, to taste the best Portuguese dishes & drinks in authentic places. Join the fun!

Come with me and taste the best of Lisbon! Wine, charcuterie, typical pastries and many other gastronomic pearls will ensure you take in authentic and picturesque Portugal.

Get lost in a labyrinth of winding alleys, full of hidden treasures. Let yourself be transported by the soft light of Alfama and stroll through aromas and flavors that will touch all your senses. Here, gastronomy is, in its richness and authenticity, a hymn to the spirit of Lisbon.

- No plastic tour: we’re the 1st ones in Lisbon to have banished all kind of plastic from our experience.

- We respect local people: no more than 12 persons on our tour! We’re integrated in the local community: the grannies of Alfama love us ;-)

- We’re currently establishing a partnership with Re-food a community that works to eliminate food waste and hunger in each neighborhood of Lisbon. More info coming soon!

We’re proud to be the first Portuguese gastronomic tour of Alfama but we’re more than just a food tour, come and see by yourself.

Ruthy and Marcio were great hosts for this wonderful Portuguese food tour. Each restaurant we stopped in was open just for our tour, so it was a very intimate experience. We had samples of wine, beer, olive oil, cheese and jam, cod cakes, sardines, octopus salad, fire flame cooked sausages, and ended with a chocolate cup of Ginja. And no tour would be complete without the famous Pasteis de Nata. Perfect combination of local sights and bites.

What a wonderful tour of Lisbon’s Alfama and an introduction to the world of fabulous food in Portugal! We were served a huge variety of tasty food and wine from several family-owned restaurants. Such a lovely afternoon/early evening with delightful and knowledgeable guide Ruthie and new friends met on the tour. We did not need any further meal that day. The Pasteis de Nata toward the end of the tour were the best we had in Portugal. We’ve joined food tours all over the world and this is one of the best – one we will be happy to join again.

This tour was excellent. Franciso (our guide) was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and deeply invested in making sure our group had a great time. Alfama can be tricky to get around with its winding and narrow streets. This was a great way to learn the history, see amazing artwork, and of course sample great Portuguese food. I especially love that this company supports family owned businesses and is committed to being plastic free.

The best tour ever! Absolutely enjoyed this experience and I wish we had booked this for the beginning of our stay instead of at the end. Recommend this to anyone looking to learn the history of food, the neighborhoods and monuments. Francisco was so funny and kind. Will absolutely do this again when I return to portugal!
