The guide was really nice and knowledgeable
Our Porto walking tour with Virginia was most enjoyable! She is indeed, a great guide....very professional, informative, knowledgeable, and fun! We did persevere through the cold rain and wind, and Virginia made the best of the uncontrollable situation. We have gone on numerous city walking tours in other countries and can say that Virginia was one of the top guides we have been with. It seemed almost like meeting a new friend after just moving to a new city....rather than meeting a travel guide just giving out details of facts, dates, etc as part of their work day. Virginia was engaging throughout the tour, answered all of our questions, and did it in her own unique style making for a most relaxing day while learning more about your great city. Adding her own comments and experiences made the story of Porto even more interesting. Thanks for offering this outstanding service to help visitors learn more about a wonderful historic city with lots of charm.
Great! We had a wonderfull tour of Porto that took us to some amazing places off the normal tourist track as well as the highlights. Our guide was incredibly knowledgable and tailored his conversation and tour to our interests. I would highly recommend this tour.

Great way to see and understand Porto. Our guide, Ishmael, shared a lot of history and culture that made the city come alive for us. Very enjoyable.
Excellent tour. Virginia was a great guide, very knowledgable and happy to share great recommendations on places to eat. We started at 9:30 with a small group and covered at lot of places in three hours. It was great to see inside the churchs, cathedral and the food market. I would recommend this tour for those who want to know more about the city, its culture and history.
The walking tour of Porto was excellent! It covered all the major attractions except the St Francis church by the river. Walked through quaint streets which we would not have known of on our own. Sao Bento station with all the beautiful blue tile scenes on the walls and the Se Cathedral are breathtaking. Enjoyed the visit to the local market and a short break at the cafe next to it. Our guide Sid was excellent, informative, and gave us enough time to enjoy all the sights-did not hurry us even though we went over the allotted time of the tour!
Great tour . Thoroughly enjoyed it. Good guide called Sid, made the tour very interesting
Brilliant tour of the city with our guide Virginia. We were very fortunate as there were only three of us on this tour as two of the participants did not show up. We met up with Virginia at 9.30am and had over three hours with her. She toured us to all the main sights and gave us a thorough tour and history of the city and all the sights. Virginia was very knowledgeable about the city and great fun to be with. I would have no hesitation recommending this tour to friends and family. It was incredible value. Thank you Virginia for such a great day!
