We had a wonderful day in Porto. Our guide was great and very knowledgeable.
The day started on a bad note we had received and email that the tour was going to start earlier than the expected time so we were out waiting for 30 minutes. When I called it sounded like the office thought our tour was at the regular time. They informed the guide, he rushed over and was there in minutes. We kept a positive attitude and were rewarded with a wonderful day.
The guide Jose was superb a very knowledgeable young man, he was personable, flexible and always conscious of the different needs of his guests. Jose made sure to ask questions to tailor the tour to our needs and preferences he found a great place for lunch where the food was awesome and the atmosphere really matched our easy going personalities. He found exactly what I wanted to experience for port tasting and I am grateful for his awesome recommendation. During his down time he was on the phone making reservations and adjusting the schedule to fit our needs.
Private tours are bit more expensive but you also get a lot more out of your day on larger tours you often get rushed on things you like and linger in boring areas, not the case here. Also Jose is able to park the vehicle in places we would not have known about. When an area is done, he is also is able to let us linger and get the vehicle instead of having to walk back through a place where we have been before.
Wonderful day. Thanks Jose!
We had a great time with our guide. He took us to amazing places, suggested good food and monuments to see, and always thought of how to best use our time! Since it was a private tour, he let us roam ans shop when possible. He knows Porto very well!
Pedro was extraordinary, he was a very informative and well prepare with information about all we asked him. Very gracious and well manner. We give him a 5 star.
Great way to see the City and private tour made it all the more special, very knowledgeable guide
a very good guide and photographer in one made me realize that porto is a beautiful place to visit and re-visit...
Pedro was a great guide. Took us everywhere and explained a lot of detail along the way. Lunch was great too. Thanks. Thoroughly enjoyable
Yes. Barbara was great on our private full day tour of Porto. Very knowledgeable, personable and responsive to special places we wanted to see that were not on normal tour. We highly recommend her.
Great tour! We are a family of 5 and were picked up by our guide and driver from our hotel at 9:30AM and we spent a wonderful and informative day with her. We first drove out along the river to the Matosinhos area, then back into the city center for a walk around the old town. Our guide was very flexible and accommodating - picking up back up in the car after the rain kicked in and taking us back to our hotel for a quick pit stop to pick up some extra layers. We then had lunch at an excellent restaurant recommended by the guide, then we took an hour long boat trip along the river. We then did a tour and tasting at the Croft port cellar.
We had an excellent day and would recommend the tour to all.
Porto in itself is a fabulous city but I think next time I will get around myself using the subway. The company we used had a very rude man.I was lost to get to the destination. Hotel and he never helped me.his statement was "that's not my problem"I didn't pay 193.00 for that kind of reaponse.!!!
