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!
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.
We had very enjoyable tour. Absolutely recommendable. The guide wasvery competent and show us beautiful sights of Porto and heart many new things on this lovely city we did not know before.
Very interesting tour with a friendly and competent guide. Thank you, Ismael
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!
We booked this tour two days out and it was worth every penny. Virginia showed myself and two others around another couple didn't show up and it was easily one of the best walking tours I've been on. Virginia was not only personable but extremely knowledgeable about Porto and it's history - it was excellent to hear from someone who was passionate about the work she does telling the story of Porto and Portugal without us knowing much about Portugal's history, Virginia did a great job of context-setting.
Would highly recommend as a first-time tour to anyone visiting the city. We saw so many great places that we perhaps wouldn't have seen by ourselves and Virginia spent her own time afterwards pointing us in the direction of further spots to check out!
I highly recommend this local company for tours and bike rentals. Even in the rain, it was a wonderful tour of the city and a highlight of my stay in Porto. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and able to provide information about the sights, as well as make suggestions about other places to visit. The staff were friendly and accommodating.
Excellent walking tour- guide was great and we were very pleased with the tour
A wonderful walk around Porto. We got to see both historic points and churches, but just as importantly the beautiful buildings around the city. Our guide Virginia is highly recommended. She is very knowledgable, and has a calm and empathetic personality. I would recommend the walking tour to anyone.
Most excellent tour! I would recommend doing this as soon as you can after arrival. Forget the bus and train tours. For Porto this is what you need. Best part was our guide, Virginia. Superb knowledge and she really personalized everything. Highly recommended!
This was our first guided city tour and we would absolutely recommend it. Sid, our guide, was very knowledgable and entertaining and we had a great time discovering Porto despite the bad weather. Thanks again for a great experience.
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).
