Description

Meet the fishermen as they come to shore and learn about the bargaining and fish selection process, and then see a canning factory, where the flavor of the fish is maximized. At the end of the tour, sit down to enjoy a delicious lunch of seafood, tasting the flavor of Matosinhos.

The Portuguese Atlantic coastline is a true haven for fish lovers. Learn the process that brings the best fish from the ocean to the table as you travel with a knowledgeable, local guide. Begin on the beach, seeing the fishermen arrive with live fish and going to trade with local fish sellers. Observe the bargaining process and revel in the thrill of choosing the best fish.

Afterward, visit one of the highest-quality canning factories in the region, seeing how manual labor is used to sort the fish to ensure the best possible flavor. An inside look into this hundred-year-old factory will give you a new perspective on how fish are prepared and shipped. Arrive at a local seafood restaurant, located inside the fish market, where you can choose your own fish before enjoying it cooked Matosinhos style.

This tour was very interesting. After the tour we stopped for lunch. We picked out the fish we wanted to eat and the cook in the restaurant cooked it for us. We have grilled squid. Great Tour!
