Loved the 10 am one on one walking tour with Ana and to see Porto through her eyes. Ana asked when I arrived, what I had seen and tailored the tour accordingly to show me things I had not seen, or found on the typical tourist route, all the while giving me her personal insights.
We walked past the old hospital, an art gallery and restaurant with beautiful views looking down over the city. Continuing on past the photography museum that was a jail, old church, courthouse, palace, old stock exchange, markets, back up to the cathedral, Sao Bento train station with the beautiful tiles that we discussed at length. The old cafe now a McDonalds and bank with an amazing old tiled foyer.
Before we knew it was I due for my 3 pm food and wine tasting tour, so Ana called and escorted me to greet them, so I did not miss out. I only wish we had more time to continue talking and sightseeing. I thoroughly recommend the tour and Ana.
