What you'll do

Do like Brian Chesky the Founder & CEO of Airbnb and join me on a tour!
With 18 TASTINGS, we will touch the Portuguese soul by discovering together the REAL Portuguese gastronomy in family-owned places.
With unique access and exclusive tastings we will show you how generous and diverse our food scene is.
We'll taste Portuguese wines & liquor, charcuterie, codfish & sardines recipes, typical pastries along with regional dishes from the land and sea.

We will also discover the most authentic district of Lisbon called Alfama. Filled with thousands of years of history, we’ll learn about its genuine people and its typical architecture.

OUR COMMITMENT IS ALSO SOCIAL:
- 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.
Other things to note
*I offer my experience at 10am and 3pm or 4pm from Monday to Saturday. If the date/time you need isn't available please contact me and I will open it!*

Hi I’m Ruthy! If you book my tour you may meet me or my friends Francisco, Rita :-).
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 Food Tours & my online shop called Treasures of Lisboa Gourmet Shop.
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!

Star Review: "As Ruthy's tours are very popular there are other people who have copied her. Book the "original" tour & you won't regret it. She is doing a fantastic job!"

Where you'll be

Located in the city-center & known as the historic cradle of Lisbon, the district of Alfama has kept its antiquated charm. Alfama combines the cuisine of the land and the sea. Stopping at some unique places, I will show you how to live like a real local during this walking gourmet experience! The restaurants we visit are very different one from the other, so after my experience you'll have a great overview of what our food scene is like nowadays!

Ruthy, her husband, and all the local establishments they choose are exceptionally friendly and welcoming - topped off by delicious food and drink. We laughed, we learned, and we dined well!

Expérience exceptionnelle, Ruthy et Marcio sont des hôtes bienveillants et vous amèneront dans les meilleurs endroits de Lisbonne. Je ne connaissais pas la ville et à travers ce tour et les petits histoire de Ruthy j’ai pu découvrir des aspects de celle ci que je n’aurai pas découvert en temps normal. Je recommande fortement cette expérience, vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés !

This was such a great way to experience the true local flavor of Alfama. Ruthy is an amazing host with a wealth of local knowledge about both the wonderful foods and labyrinth of a neighborhood. Between restaurant stops she would point out fun facts or areas of street art that you’d otherwise miss. All of the restaurants we visited were locally owned and operated and provided excellent foods and flavors. The wines pairings were equally delicious, and generous :) I highly recommend Ruthy and this food tour. I’d absolutely do it again on a return trip to Lisbon!
