I loved this tour. The guide was knowledgeable and I was with a small group of people who could walk. The views were incredible and the little café where we stopped for a break served the absolute best cappuccino. The only drawback was that the tour broke up outside the tour office and I had to find my way back to my hotel.
Day trips recommended for families with older children. City tour was well run and exciting. Porto is clean, the residents are extremely friendly. Greetings to all

A relaxed stroll with time for coffe / closure exploration if needed
Lovely knowledgable guide
I highly recommend this interesting walking tour of Porto. Such a pleasant way to get to know the city with a very knowledgeable, friendly and patient guide. The included coffee and pastry in the middle of the tour as well as a shot of port at the end were all much appreciated!
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.
