We (a group of friends, all architects) took a tour with Pedro this summer and we learned so many completely new things about Porto! Which may not sound so surprising in the first place.
But: we've all been to Porto more than once plus I...More
I had been to Porto many times -I actually lived there for a year a while back. And yet I discovered soooo many things about Porto that I had no idea about! I'm still digesting everything I learned.
Margarida was a great guide because she...More

I booked the tour on my first full day of visiting Porto and it was a great way to be introduced to the city. Pedro was very knowledgeable about Porto's past and present. We started in Marques an area north of the city centre and...More

My partner and I were looking for a tour that showed the 'real' Porto as opposed to an obvious shlep around the main tourist attractions and were not disappointed. We absolutely loved our afternoon with Margarida, who is highly engaging and gave us some wonderful...More

The back lanes, the empty shopping center which is now a rehearsal and studio venue for bands, the ‘islands’ of what was once workers’ housing, abandoned factories and a walk along train tracks high above the river Douro - what a fantastic tour of behind-the-scenes...More

We were a group of four and I paid €50 for our tour. Our guide, Gui, said that it was too much but I thought it was reasonable. Our tour was eye-opening and we were happy to support a group of devoted professionals who are clearly passionate about their city. Similar walking tours seem to average €19 per person.
