I can truly say that this was the highlight of my trip in Lisbon. Tolga is an amazing person and he has great depth of knowledge of the food and culture of Lisbon. What I loved most was that it wasn't just a food tour, I learned many interesting things about Lisbon history and culture. The places that we visited were very carefully curated and his passion for food and Lisbon really came through. I'm grateful for the amazing experience and memories and can't recommend it highly enough.

A experiência superou minhas expectativas. Conheci lugares que não teria conhecido sozinha e teria perdido uma oportunidade valiosa. A história misturada com os locais que visitamos e a gastronomia, que nos foi apresentada formam em conjunto, a definição de uma experiência, e das melhores. Só tenho a agradecer, e muito, pelas horas que passamos juntos. Recomendo com ênfase.

Tolga is an amazing person. He took us to so many different food related places and we learned so much about the food, the culture and the tradition of Lisbon and Portugal. It was so nice to see how he sees and feels the city every day. He radiates positivity and is a characteristically warm soul. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Lisbon. I highly recommend this tour! You shouldn´t miss it.

Wow! What a tour! This is the highlight of my trip by far. Victor is incredibly knowledgable, warm, friendly and fun. He is obviously well connected in the area and was able to show our small and intimate group around a whole array of incredibly interesting and artisan suppliers. There were a number of firsts for me on this tour (I've never 'drank' olive oil or had an olive chocolate with ginger)! The afternoon was incredible. I am travelling on my own on this occasion and this trip, eating our way around the city was utterly perfect in every way. I was immediately at ease and would thoroughly recommend this experience - and excellent value too! Thank you so much. Maybe see you again! :)

Die Begegnung und der Rundgang mit Tolga war wirklich etwas Besonderes. Ich merkte deutlich seine Begeisterung für Lissabon, die Menschen, die Küche und alles was mit der portugiesischen Genusswelt zu tun hat. Ich habe Dinge über Portugal, dessen Geschichte und Küche erfahren, was ich einfach beeindruckend fand. Da die Rundgänge nur an einzelnen und ausgesuchten Tagen statt finden, wird dass Engagement der Beiden deutlich, nicht einfach etwas abzufertigen. Ich hatte das Gefühl an etwas besonderem teil zu nehmen. Dabei hat Tolga jedes Gruppenmitglied im Blick und man spürt eine Verbindung zu ihm und somit auch zu Lissabon. Wenn Ihr die Möglichkeit habt, die Tour am Anfang Eures Lissabon Aufenthaltes zu buchen, dann unbedingt machen!!! Danach läuft man mit ganz anderen Augen durch die Gassen und Restaurants der Stadt und hat das Gefühl ein stückweit zu den Locals zu gehören. An dieser Stelle noch einmal vielen lieben Dank und weiterhin viel Genuss an Tolga und Vitor.
