Take part in the only plastic-free Food Tour to support family-restaurants in Alfama.

Hi I’m Ruthy! If you book my tour you may meet me, my husband Marcio or my friends Francisco, João, Héloïse,! :-)
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.
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!
Come with me and taste the best of Lisbon! Wine, charcuterie, typical pastries and many other gastronomic pearls will ensure you take in authentic and picturesque Portugal.
Get lost in a labyrinth of winding alleys, full of hidden treasures. Let yourself be transported by the soft light of Alfama and stroll through aromas and flavors that will touch all your senses. Here, gastronomy is, in its richness and authenticity, a hymn to the spirit of Lisbon.
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.
18 TASTINGS Homemade, handmade and UNIQUE: Some of the products or recipes that we taste are exclusive to my tour. You will not leave hungry! I serve plenty of sweet & savory food tastings from family restaurants. 100% typical! I'll give you a lot of info about Alfama & our cooking traditions.
Please warn me in advance of any food allergies or diet restrictions!

Francisco tied the restaurants history with the food, his engaging personality made the food tour the best experience in Lisbon thus far. Highly recommend this tour.

This was our first food tour and it set the bar super high! Fransisco was fantastic and introduced us to some of the spots in Lisbon that we would have otherwise never known about. We even went back to some of the spots after the tour because they were so good. Fransisco was super knowledgable and had an electric energy. You don't want to miss out on this amazing experience!

This was the most amazing food tour in the beautiful city of Lisbon! Francisco was our guide and we honestly could not have wished for anyone better! He was incredibly knowledgeable of the city, food and culture and was so personable. We loved spending time with him and didn’t want the tour to end! The food and drinks were amazing, authentic and there was a wide variety. More than enough food, we were stuffed after! Definitely come hungry! Thank you so much Francisco for the memories!
