A wonderful day experiencing the tastes of Lisbon
Jun 2021 • Solo
We loved this entire tour! Rita was an incredible guide through the streets of Lisbon and took us not only to some amazing restaurants but to many historical sites. She had a ton of amazing knowledge on Portuguese history and Portuguese culinary history and was exceptionally friendly and entertaining. I couldn’t recommend this experience more!

Great way to discover local gems
May 2021
This was a wonderful way to start my trip in Lisbon. The tour is now operating for private groups to give customers more comfort in the post COVID world. My tour guide Rita was friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about Portuguese food and tradition. She took me around the city to explore local gems and told me about the history / stories of food I tried or about Lisbon / Portugal. As some venues remain closed post lock down, she was still able to plan out a way for me to try everything intended. After the tour she even gave me advice to help me plan the rest of my trip. I highly recommend Devour Tours.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review about your time with Rita. We love hearing that our guests had a great time, but it's even more important to us at times like this. Rita is a fantastic person to spend time with on your trip to Lisbon, she - and the rest of our team! - are really passionate about sharing their hometown with visitors. I hope we will see you in Spain or one of our other cities in Europe again soon!

Unique food experience in Lisbon
Sep 2020
Even after one food tour in Lisbon and many trips around the country these past few years, we were surprised that we still have a lot to learn about Portugal's cuisine and traditions.

We have spent 3 incredible hours with our guide Rita, a local from Lisbon. She made us try delicious typical food and taught us about the history of the city and the country.

We definitely recommend taking a tour with Devour and Rita ! Can't wait for our next food tour.

Hi Clara, thanks for the review! We are so happy to hear that Rita was able to show you more about Lisbon and it's amazing food and culture. It is so easy to spend time in a place but to not see everything. That is why we love giving food tours because it gives us a few hours to share great food, drinks and stories with people. We hope to see you on tour again with us! Stay safe

Great Customer Service
Apr 2020
Unfortunately I had to cancel my trip tp Portugal and therefore my Devour food tour due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
I cannot praise Devour’s response more highly. They were proactive in contacting me, offering a full refund or a voucher. I chose the voucher option which I received two days later. The voucher offered great flexibility both in terms of timing and in use.
I was also impressed by the responsible attitude displayed by Devour who were keen to balance the interests of their employees, tourists and the communities within which they operate.
I look forward to taking my Devour “Tastes and Traditions of Lisbon Food Tour” when international travel resumes.

Authentic and informative food tour
Nov 2019
This was the best food tour I have attended so far in Europe!
Ellis has paid attention to all the people in the group and answer all of our question. I liked how she selected the places we eat at and how she designed the tour so that we stop on a few important historical places in Lisbon and learn a bit about the history of the town but also Portugal. She also provided tips on how to avoid tourists traps and shared a few restaurants we should try for dinner.
Would be defiantly booking another tour with this company when I am back in the fascinating city of Lisbon!

Online Discover Portugal's History Through Ten Dishes
Armchair travel through Portugal's food history with Melissa was very informative and fun for our family to share together. It was a good replacement for being in Lisbon but whet our appetites for sampling and seeing the real foods and sights. Thank you Melissa for the clear presentation you gave. Your integration into Portuguese culture helped us to feel equally warm and welcomed.

Virtual Lisbon Food Tour
May 2020
My daughter and I did the virtual tour of Lisbon food last weekend and it was a blast. We already signed up for two more virtual sessions; One is a live Portuguese cooking class and the other is a "tour" of Spanish wine. Its a great and inexpensive way to feed your lust for gastronomic tourism in the era of the "The Great Pause."

I hope we can do an in-person tour next summer!

Well done guys :)

Jan 2020 • Friends
Rita was a great host for our Tastes & Traditions Food Tour. We learnt so much about Lisbon history in a couple of hours. A good tour to do at the start of our stay in Lisbon, Rita was able to suggest many good things to eat, drink and see. Would thoroughly recommend a Devour tour.

Sarah was our tour guide and she did a wonderful job! Tours like this are totally dependent on how good your tour guide is and she was great. I enjoyed the way she took time to speak about her personal experiences snd make local recommendations. Lisbon is a gem don’t miss this tour!

Great food and very interesting insights about the city
Jul 2019
I did a gastronomic tour with Devour and it was fantastic. The guide walked us through very interesting marklands of Lisbon while making stops in local restaurants with the best Portuguese food I ate during my whole time in the city. I could really see the compromise of Devour to promote and take care of traditional and local restaurants, the food was amazing and the stories the guide shared with us were very interesting and amusing. Great experience if you want to travel in an authentic way!
