This outstanding food tour consists of traditional portuguese food, a fine dining tasting menu with wine pairing, and a final desert stop. On this gourmet tour you will not only taste some of Portugal’s finest food, you will do so in three authentic Lisbon settings, listening to the greatest fado singers of our generation. Fado and food are abundant in Lisbon, the tricky thing is finding the authentic places where to enjoy not just food but great food and deeply moving professional fado instead of tourist trap amateurs. My mission is to take you places you are very unlikely to end-up in otherwise, and offer you a taste of the highest quality Portuguese dishes. In three unique decors, you will experience the traditional Lisbon evening, tasting wines, sharing some food and listening to the beautiful ”saudades” of fado. For those who are still confused about what this “fado” is all about, I recommend you leave it to your heart and ears to discover. Defining fado would be useless as each singer and every musician has their own distinctive touches and though the words are mostly sorrowful, they will surprise you with an occasional light and joyful tune.

I'm Ben! With my friends and especially Conrad we like to travel, discover authentic places and to go where the locals go! I was born and raised in Lyon, known as the Capital of the Gastronomy in France! I've been rocked from an early age in a foodie environment. I can say I have a truly traveler and food lover background after visiting 5 continents in the world. Degree in hotel management and tourism, I worked in Australia, then in Morocco managing a luxurious Riad in the heart of Marrakech. After a few years, I felt the need to go back to Spain, a country I like. I decided to spend 2 years in Barcelona. Later on, love took me to Lisbon and subsequently I personally felt in love with the city. With my friends we will share with you this love of our city and we will guide you to discover all the amazing food Portugal has to offer!
