What you'll do

What I do is more than a food tour. It's a 3-hour walk packed with jaw-dropping scenes and a sensational, authentic and local Portuguese cuisine. The tour follows a typical Portuguese lunch, dessert, and snacks. I want you to taste and experience the best of the Portuguese gastronomy while uncovering the best cultural and historical sightseeing Algarve has to offer. All the vendors and restaurant owners are locals personal family friends that offer tasty experiences that most would not know existed.

I am self-confessed foodie enthusiast. Born in Portugal and raised in 2 different continents. While abroad I was known to always host dinner parties to showcase the best of what Portuguese cuisine has to offer. I launched Algarve Foodie tours with a mission to leave visitors with an unparalleled, non-touristy, food-related experience in off-the-beaten-paths of this astonishing region of Portugal.

Where you'll be

We will experience Faro's old town the way a local Algarvian does. We will also visit Faro's Market where you can taste locally made cheeses, traditional sweets made of figs and almonds, and much more. From the market, we will venture to the streets of Faro and visit family-owned, local tapas spots that you would overwise miss out.

This was such an enjoyable food tour. Sali knew all of the vendors in the market and restaurants personally which made us feel part of the community. We got to learn and taste so many different things. It felt really personal and unique and would highly recommend to everyone! We have been raving about it since we came home!

We had a great time on Sali’s tour , she’s an amazing person, she has incredible knowledge of the history of Portuguese food and the history of the Algarve region, you can tell she loves what she does and she is fun to be with and to listen to. The tour starts in the Faro market where Sali introduces you to the local vendors who were very happy to see our tour group stop by and sample their products. The tour then stops at a restaurant and then continues throughout the old part of Faro where we stopped at various places before finishing with a Portuguese coffee in a lovely coffee shop and then ending the tour at the marina with a group photo. Do this tour you’ll love it.

Great tour, Sali was a really knowledgable host. She was obviously well travelled and knew a lot about Portuguese food and culture. We got to try a selection of cheeses unique to Faro. The tour of the market gave us an insight into the culture and specialities. The lunch was a little disappointing but overall very good value for money. I would definitely recommend this tour!
