My wife and I had a great day trip to Porto! Although it was rainy, our guide showed us the major sites/churches of Porto. We had great views of the city and river despite the rain. Lunch was in a local restaurant with locals. we love that-simple meal at reasonable prices. Since we had spent much of our time in Lisbon, we really didn't need to have more cod recipes! After seeing the tower and three churches, we also saw the bookstore where Rowling wrote Harry Potter long line, we just peaked in. Then we had a Port wine tour for an hour, thanks to our guide! In the end we went home happy and tired. Because our trip was in December, we couldn't get out to the shore in time since it got pretty dark by 5:30. We recommend this tour!

Excellent. It was a long drive from Lisbon to Porto but Porto itself merits seeing. Our driver Daniel was great and informative once we got there. There was a problem getting in contact with the local company doing the tour as we did not have a phone to use and I tried 4 internet searches to contact them of our hotel for pick up. I had my fingers crossed that one of the messages got through and only heard the afternoon before our morning departure that they did have our hotel information. We rode in a comfortable and roomy van which was nice. Great visit at the Pinta ? distillery and wonderful guide there as well. One of the oldest Port distilleries in Porto and the tour allowed us to see the process as well as a liberal tasting of the different kinds of Port. 3 of the sites visited required @ 5 Euros each to visit which seemed , given the price of the tour, a little high and I felt should have been included. Beautiful churches and areas were visited.

Disappointing. The guide was a nice guy who functioned more as a driver than a tour guide. He never once told us why he was dropping us at particular sites. Just said, okay, go look at this or climb that. I would have liked some more context. The only way I got any info was by asking, over and over. Also, he was not as knowledgeable as I would have liked. For example, we were walked to this beautiful train station that was filled with painted scenes. When asked what the scenes were, the guide had no clue. Well, why take us there if you don't know? Do your homework. This was a very expensive tour, primarily because of the Lisbon pick up and drive to Porto, I guess. I felt nickled and dimed, because everywhere we went I had to pay an entrance fee. The fees weren't big, but still, the tour cost a lot and I don't see why these fees were not included. The only thing included was the Port tasting, which was fun, but the guide had no idea we had paid for it, had to verify, and then scramble to find us a tasting. Why? All in all, not very professional. Had I known all of this, I would have taken a train to Porto and booked a local tour.
