Be safe having the same fun!


Dear traveller,

I decided to share with you our COVID-19 internal commitments and guidelines in order to inform you about our responsibilities, as hosts and guests, and to share some procedures we all must be aware of in order to have a safe and responsible experience.

We believe we can enjoy, be safe and have the same fun as always.

Portugal was the first European country to receive the Safe Travels Seal from the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) and in May 2020, Turismo de Portugal granted Oh! My Cod Food Tours (Silvia Olivença Unipessoal, Lda.) the Clean & Safe certification.

This label certificates that all our activities and hosts are compliant with hygiene and cleaning requirements for the prevention and control of COVID-19 and other possible infections.

You can feel confident to travel safely as restrictions are raised.
If you book one of our tours, we will do a small briefing once we meet just before our experience starts and reply to all your related questions.

For now, kindly read our internal safety protocol.

During these pandemic times we’ve also created a virtual experience for those who can’t travel right now!

In this online experience you can meet me via Zoom, walk through Lisbon, meet my grandmother and the locals and discover this old city from your coach, through stories that connect my childhood with Lisbon’s history and modern life.

This is also a great opportunity to be introduced to the city and to know your future hosts, before you can visit us in person! Plus, if you do join you’ll automatically get a code offering you 10% OFF any of our in person Lisbon food experiences. And if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also receive a free Ebook Guide of Alfama, with several restaurant addresses and hidden gems to discover on your own. Check it out here.

Warm regards,
Your host,

a dark room
