What You Can Expect

Porto City Tour Including Cruise, Port Wine Tasting and Lunch

Taste delicious port wine on this private day trip

After meeting your guide for a pickup at your Porto hotel, hop aboard an air-conditioned minivan and begin your full day city tour of Porto. Begin with a half-hour drive that explores Porto and its beautiful waterfront. Learn about the city’s blue collar roots that’s helped mold its rich tradition.

Cross the river to Vila Nova de Gaia and discover Porto’s most famous industry, port (a fortified wine). From here, if you have selected the rabelo boat cruise, take a classic trip up the Douro River. Experience how these wooden boats once transported massive quantities of port to the wineries in Porto. As you sit back and unwind, savor a serene ride past coastal sights and under six bridges that cross the river.

Return to the port wine lodge and begin a traditional port wine-tasting. Listen as your guide explains how the port industry produces the world’s best fortified wines. Then, drink up a few varieties of port including a white, tawny and ruby. After enticing your taste buds, continue to a traditional Portuguese restaurant for a hearty lunch.

After filling your belly, voyage to the city center and put your legs to work with a stroll up the Clérigo Tower. At the top of this Baroque-style monument that stands 249 feet (76 meters) tall, gaze over the winding streets below. Snap you last photo, march back down and continue with a walking tour of the city. Head to the Ribeira district and step inside the illustrious Livraria Lello bookshop to admire its ornate wood carved interior. Then relish a visit to the São Bento Train Station adorned with distinguished azulejos tiles. Finally, cruise around Porto Old Town and learn why this area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

After a day uncovering Porto’s culture and history, return to your Porto hotel and wish your guide happy trails.

With it being the off-season in Porto, we were the only ones on this tour, which was really special. Pedro was a wonderful guide! This is our third tour with Viator, and we have yet to be disappointed. We've toured Amsterdam Countryside, Lisbon walking tour and now Porto... we highly recommend Viator!

Fantastic tour! Our guide, Anna, was so knowledgeable and caring. We saw the city, the boat tour, port wine tasting and also learned so much about the rich history of Porto. Loved that it was a small group tour my family of three and four other people. Lunch was delicious in a beautiful restaurant. Highly recommend this excellent value tour.

Our tour of Porto led by the excellent Anna was really enjoyable, well worth the money. Shame it was raining in the morning, but at least it meant the day was cooler. Really good not to have to queue for tickets to enter the Lello bookshop. We saw the best sites, well explained. Nice lunch, nice six bridges river cruise, followed by a fantastic visit to the Graham's port cellars and wine tasting. A really enjoyable day, plus collection from and return to our hotel.
