My husband and I had a great time. We saw interesting and historical sites. We walked a lot which we loved. Our guide had a great sense of humor and didn't shy away from explaining how politics shaped the history of the city. The sites visited were a mix of traditional and quirky. We asked lots of questions and our guide was ready to answer them. The guide also gave a list of her personal recommendations for authentic restaurants and othe sites to visit. She was a native Porto had a degree in history/art history which was evident during her presentation of the sights. To our surprise, there was an olive oil and port tasting at the end of the walking tour. We were unaware that the tour included a tasting and felt that this experience was definitely worth the reasonable fee we paid. I was also able to book the tour the night before online for the following day. Very convenient. The meeting point was in the center of town and easy to find. We highly recommend this tour.

this was such a beautiful and fulfilling experience. I would love to come back to Porto and book again with Tommy. he was patient. and understood what makes me happy. and focused on similar stuff. I would recommend this walk

It was a great tour with lots of sites seen and our guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Taking the Tuk Tuk was a great way to see the city.

Pedro was an excellent guide. Great overview, very informative. He recommended a couple of restaurants and we tried both. Both were great

Vete a was our guide. She was very knowledgeable, friendly and gave lots of recommendations. She really went the extra mile.
