Porto with personality

Martinho Ramos was a fantastic tour guide- with his knowledge and good humor we discovered Porto in way that wouldn’t have Ben possible otherwise. Martinho’s English was excellent and he shared his historical knowledge and personal anecdotes with passion and good humor.
Perfect half-day tour!

Our tour guide, Hugo, was the best! My husband has limited mobility, and Hugo made every effort to assist him, by finding close-by parking spots to taking us to places that didn't require a great deal of walking. He was so nice, funny and knowledgeable about the city of Porto and I believe that even in the four hours we were with him, we got a lot more out of the city than many would on their own in a full day. The tour included some of Porto's steep hills, beautiful vistas, and a wonderful stop at Churchill Cellars for some delicious port wine tasting. His van was air-conditioned and very comfortable. I'd highly recommend this tour. If you book it, request Hugo! Thanks, Hugo, for a great day out! Tom and Laura from California

Great tour with Bernardino

We wish we had booked our tour with Bernardino our fist day in Porto instead of wandering around ourselves. Being a native from Porto, he is so knowledgeable about not only the history but inside the stories. His English was great and his sense of humor helped us appreciate and remember all the amazing sights we saw. He was friendly but very professional so we felt comfortable and well taken care of during the entire tour! You can’t go wrong to book a tour with Bernardino
Wonderful Tour

The half-day tour was an excellent investment to learn more about Porto's history and layout. It gave us a solid foundation for further exploration on our own. Manuel was a great guide - very knowledgable and very helpful with answers to our questions. We got to see much more of Porto by car than we could have on foot.
