Ruthy is very friendly and knows a lot about Portuguese history. She also taught us how to eat sardines which is really important because it's a difficult fish to eat! I recommend Ruthy's tour for people who like to walk and eat local food.

I booked this tour for me and my family and I recommend it for the diversity of tastes: we ate salty food, pastry, liqueurs, wines, orange juice while walking through the streets of Alfama... It’s truly a foodie and cultural tour.
