Eat to your heart's content in Lisbon and find out why this city is at the top of every food lover's list.
On this tour we will give you an overview of Portuguese history and Lisbon history in particular as we wander through some of the most typical neighborhoods of the historic center. We will explain the how and when of the events associated to the marvelous architecture and vibe of this former imperial capital.
We will give you typical drinks to taste and we will take you on a gastronomic experience at a typical "tasca" (tavern).
