Activity Overview
Mouth-watering delicacies!
Petisco is a local word in the Algarve for 'tidbits', 'delicacies' or 'treats'. Thus, you know what to expect on our Petisco Food Tour: local delicacies galore! Dishes that you will be able to sample when you choose a Petisco Food Tour with us include scrumptious fried baby cuttlefish and melt in the mouth razorfish cakes (as you may already know, the Algarve is famous for its ancient seafood diet). Added to these will be some of the Algarve's finest wines. As if that was not enough, we throw in a craft beer tasting too, various cheeses, and traditional desserts. It is just impossible to resist so many different food delicacies!

To make your experience even more rich and memorable, we will show you several monuments as we stroll along the streets of Faro. Places that we visit on the tour include the Chapel of Bones (or Capela do Ossos in Portuguese) with more than 1,000 skeletons and the local cathedral Sé to enjoy the magnificent views of the city. You will also get to stroll around the Jardim Manuel Bívar, which is one of the most elegant and inspiring gardens in the Algarve.

Whether alone or with friends, this is a must-see and must-taste food tour!
