Overview

Experience Porto at its most romantic during this evening city sightseeing tour followed by dinner and a Fado show. This tour will show you the many beautiful sides of Porto at night. Start with a driving tour in a comfortable van with panoramic windows to see the cobblestone streets, floodlit Douro River, and many other stunning sites. Then, head to an authentic local restaurant for a memorable meal and traditional Fado show, Portugal’s signature melancholic music of longing.

Your evening Porto tour begins by meeting your driver and guide in central Porto at dusk, the most romantic time of day. Settle into your comfortable van and gaze out its panoramic windows as the city unfolds before you. Enjoy a visual overview of Porto’s best points of interest on your leisurely evening drive. 

Listen to informative commentary from your in-the-know guide as you drive past Porto’s iconic landmarks and majestic Douro River glistening from the city lights. Drive along one of the city’s most picturesque streets, Avenida dos Aliados, and admire the stately architecture and grand Liberdade Square. Admire the glowing Baroque bell tower of Clérigos Church and the Romanesque architecture of Porto’s cathedral. Cruise by the rococo São Bento train station and on through the lively Ribeirinha port district, filled with bustling restaurants and riverfront views.

But your night doesn’t end there. Next, head to an intimate local restaurants filled with visitors and locals alike for an unforgettable dining experience. Savor authentic Portuguese dishes amid traditional décor and soft lighting. Enjoy a first dish, a main of meat or fish and dessert. The meal will be accompanied by wine, beer or juice.

During your meal, enjoy the dark romance of Fado. Fado is Portugal’s own singing style, and is a beautiful folk expression of longing that people once performed outside in Porto’s alleys. Listen to a soloist (the fadista) and a classical acoustic guitar during this performance. It’s no surprise Fado is on UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage List.

Enjoyed the dinner and, of course, the Fado music. Lots of ambiance and talented musicians. Wonderful experience, except the delay in transport, which cut some of our night tour sites.

Great food, enjoyable music, convivial company. If going solo ask to sit with others on the tour, as they automatically seat you alone. I was lucky other guests insisted I join them.

Excellent tour. Good show, great singers and very good food. Lots of wine. You get to see a little bit of the city at night. Our guide took us to a very high point on the city so we can see the city landscape at night.

This tour is fantastic. Our guide took 4 of us to vantage points on both sides of the river and was incredibly knowledgeable about history and with anecdotes. The experience at the Fado Performance was wonderful with the 2 singers and the 2 musicians giving a performance with an emotional intensity. The food and company was pretty good too.

What a fantastic night tour of Porto and an enjoyable and delicious dinner/Fado show. Our guide Yorick was very knowledgeable and personable. I would strongly recommend this non touristy, intimate show and evening out. Well worth the price for the quality of the meal and individual service. They will also pick you up at your house which is a real plus.

Pedro our driver picked us up from our Hotel on time always a good way to start a tour! He was very pleasant and spoke English well. We did not get much of a tour of Porto by Night, we basically drove across the river to the Guia side and looked at Porto for a bit and then we drove to dinner. The dinner was wonderful! We were able to enjoy two Fado singers this evening. So if you are doing this tour for a guided tour of Porto at Night ... would not suggest, but if you want a wonderful dinner and want to experience Fado ... worth doing.

The highlight is the FADO performance. The tour of Porto was a bit rushed.
