My family and I (2 children) were able to have our own private tour of Porto with our guide Joao. They even brought a child seat for my 3 year old. Now talk about service. They picked us up directly at the hotel and even had a reminder for us at the front desk!! Impressed!! Because it was just us for 4 he even drove up to see the beach and area of Matosinhos....nothing but restaurants that serve fresh grilled seafood!!! Finished the day at Grahams Port Factory for Port tasting!!
Only 4 of us on this tour and our guide was great. Highly recommended and the final stop at Graham's Port Lodge crowned it off superbly.
We recently did this tour in March 2014. We were picked up promptly at our hotel by our wonderful guide Claudia from Living Tours in Porto. It was raining, but she still made out tour fantastic. We started off in the government square with the city hall, then off to the Sao Bento train station to see all the beautiful azulejos. Then, we visited the cathedral with great views of the city from the top. Finally, we made our way to Vila Nova de Gaia, across the river, to visit the Graham's cellars. This was the best part of the tour in my opinion. We had a guided tour and learned about port wine, and then off to their beautiful tasting room to try 3 different kinds of ports. Their tasting room is gorgeous with views of the Douro river and Porto. Awesome tour! We flew into Porto at 9 am, out tour was at 2 pm, and by the end of our first day we were already acquainted with the city. We topped off our night with an amazing dinner at the Encondidinho restuarant and it was the perfect first day in Porto! Thank you Claudia for your time and attention! Loved it!
A highly knowledgeable and passionate guide gave us a through introduction to the history and many fascinating sites of Porto, plus an unexpected visit to Grahams port lodge in Villa Nova de Guia. Paulo was very passionate about her city and country and this showed in the depth of knowledge of Porto. An excellent introduction to Porto, despite the rain, which we followed up with two more excellent trips to the Duoro River and Santiago de la Campostella. Well worth the time and money.
It was a great tour in the beautiful city of Porto. Sebastian is a good guide and explain all the history of the monuments very well. I recommend this tour.
This was a good tour. We ended up being the only two on the tour so it was like having a private tour of the city. He was really nice and very well informed on all the sites of the city. We really enjoyed this tour.
Excellent guide. A fantastic tour which gave us an insight into Porto in the few hours that we had.
Awesome tour guide that took us to all the great sights Porto has to offer!
Interesting tour of Porto. The visit to the winery was particularly good.
Guide was very energetic and knowledgeable. Very informative and enjoyable tour of the city.
We had a great time. The tour guide tried her best to keep the tour interesting despite the rain. We really appreciated her efforts.
Our guide (Maria) was knowledgeable and helprful, the sites and stops were very worthwhile.
Excellent tour guide - helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and adaptable. Just very frustrating trying to call to confirm and not hearing back pickup times.
Little bit to little information and the groups should still be rather in one language.
under my expectation. Some other interesting places as in guide internet information has not been shown
A Sham! We didn't get a licensed tour guide. We got a driver who dropped us off at various places in the rain, went for coffee and smoke then returned.
The Graham's winery tour was abysmal ! Not what I wanted for me or my two children which we could have booked if we wanted!
While I paid for this tour we were not able to be included at there was confusion regarding pick up point. We arrived on a cruise ship and pick ups were in Porto which was 30 minutes away. The tour company did try to make arrangements.
This tour was not exactly as Viator describes it to be. Firstly, there was no "walking tour through the oldest quarter of Ribeira", and secondly they did not take us to Foz. We were dropped off outside the Cathedral and told to go inside and then meet the guide 15 minutes later. We were then dropped off outside the famous Bookshop and allowed free time there for a few minutes. The major part of this tour consisted of a visit to Graham's Port Lodge, where the guide once more left us to our own devices, and we were taken on a boring tour of the wine cellars by an arrogant little guy who rushed through his obviously rehearsed commentaries, and when it came to the wine tasting at the end, he disappeared, leaving us to stand around while other groups were given wine samples . This tour was a total waste of money, and not what we expected it to be.
Trip was not well organized, it done everything to spoil our view of beautiful city!
It was complete waist of money.
City was closed for marathon and guide had no clue where to go , as a result it was not city tour, but 3 block around the river tour.
No decent explanation of history or architecture.
To find out where we will start tour we have to call to Las Vegas, - local number did not answer at all!
You better find other local agency.
We thought it was a going to be a bus but it was a little van. The guide was very nice and professional but we had 2 other couples that spoke 2 different languages so we were having trouble keeping up between the English, Spanish, and Portuguese. You couldn't see anything really because of traffic and pictures from inside a van don't come out as well as you would want them to be. We made 3 stops and only one was ok. Do not take this tour. It is better on the hop on, hop off bus or you can walk the entire city by yourself.
