Virginia is the perfect tour guide - knowledgeable and enthusiastic, expertly taking us around Porto, answering all our questions and adapting the tour to the needs of the participants. Many thanks :)

Virginia was our guide. She was very friendly and her English was exceptional. She studied history at University so she was particularly knowledgeable with the history of Porto. She was able to answer all our questions of past and recent history. We were not rushed as we wandered around the wonderful sites of Porto. After the tour, Virginia sat with us and gave us some restaurant recommendations and other places to see. I highly recommend this tour.

I was in Porto on holiday with my sister and we signed up for our first Viator tour which happened to be in Porto. We were pleasantly surprised that it was just the two of us on this walking tour with our guide Virginia. She speaks excellent English and we had wonderful conversation. We followed the tour as it is planned but had flexibility with the time spent at the various sights and were even able to stop for some coffee along the way. Virginia was perfect for this as she studied history and really knows a lot of the the little details. She also provided us with suggestions for port wine as well as a few vegetarian restaurants (as we are both vegetarians) for our stay in Porto which were quite helpful. Overall, highly recommend the walking tour. Please be aware that there are some hills (but the tour is well planned to minimize the amount of uphill climbs).

This tour was the highlight of our 5 weeks in Europe. Our tour leader Sid possessed an exceptional knowledge the city's history and culture, but it was his friendly and engaging manner that impressed us most. Porto is hilly, and we were concerned the tour might prove too exhausting. Not to worry. The route was cleverly planned and Sid allowed time for taking photographs and other stops along the way. If it were possible to award a tour more than five stars, this is the one.

The tour was excellent with the best tour guide ever, Victoria!! Although I was the only one who booked the tour on that specific date, they were too kind to not to cancel the tour,and gave me the chance to enjoy Porto! Victoria really likes her job and Porto, and you like it with her more! I'm happy to make that tour, enjoy Porto with all the historical information and + friend ship of Victoria! Really recommend the walking tour, which gives you the chance to understand more then you can do alone, and recommend ViaTour! Thank you again

The two young tour guides were remarkable. They were knowledgeable and very sweet. They took y family to non-touristy places and told us where to buy certain goods. The views and places were amazing and I would love to tour with them again!

The instructions on the meeting point are poor. Disregard the reference to Lello's Bookshop, meeting point is the Lions Statue in the Plaza. But the tour was fantastic, tour guide very knowledgeable and we walked through many areas of Porto of interest. A lot of history to help make the tour relevant. The tour route was well considered to minimise hills, and well paced. Thoroughly recommend the tour.

The meeting point was not easy to find as this was located behind what we thought to be an obvious square. Lions Square was used and as this is a local term and not on any of the maps we obtained form the tourist office. Lello's Bookshop was mentioned as a landmark but this did little to describe the beauty of what lay within the store. Unfortunately as we chose a Sunday for our tour it was closed but it looks like it came off the set of a Harry Potter film where they went to get their books. It is supposed to be rated the 3rd best book store in the world. We met with the guide who took us round Porto highlights telling us of the history and giving little snippets of information that we probably would not have got from just walking about by ourselves. The weather was not very kind but this did not dampen the enthusiasm of the guide who remained upbeat throughout, despite getting wet. We stopped for a coffee but instead of taking us to an, expensive Costa outlet took us to a local café in a shopping area where we had 3 coffees and 3 cakes for less than you could buy one coffee at Costa, great local coffee.
One to be recommended

Great tour - tour guide was super. Well worth doing this trip, went places that we would not have found on our own and really enjoyed the time.
