I was in Porto with 2 old friends and we wanted to take an all encompassing private tour of the city to see its sights, food, wine and more (a hard task to do in 3.5 hours). I had found Ricardo from an episode of Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain so I had high expectations, Ricardo well exceeded them. He showed us all of that and much more. He was super engaging, knew everything you would ever want to know about the city, and introduced us to some amazing local people who shared stories, food and drink. It was a special time, highly recommend for anyone wanting a real taste of Porto.

Absolutely fantastic. My wife and I were on the half day tour with Ricardo and enjoyed every minute. Ricardo was extremely knowledgeable, engaging, and brought Porto to life. Incredible city and a tour well worth taking. We covered a ton of ground, say many fabulous sites, great coffee, thoroughly entertaining, and capped off with a spectacular lunch. Highly recommended!

We booked a half day tour with Ricardo and had a wonderful experience. He arrived promptly and spoke perfect English. He was knowledgable and amusing and gave us an understanding not only of Jewish experience in Porto but also what life was like for today's inhabitants. The coffee shops were excellent and the lunch almost overwhelming -be prepared for a major meal at the end of the tour if that is included. Can heartily recommend Ricardo.

We took a 3 hour walking tour of Porto with Ricardo. We were a family with three teenagers and a child. Not an easy audience. The tour was excellent. Ricardo took us to all the important sites and gave very interesting explanations that added a lot to our understanding of Porto and Portugal. He kept the kids interested too. In addition he gave us excellent tips for the continuation of our stay, including about vegan restaurants. He also sent us a detailed plan (with directions) for our day trip to the Geres National Park.
I highly recommend this guide!

Amazing walking tour of Porto with Ricardo. We found his name in Rick Steves' Portugal travel book. We connected and decided on a date and content of the tour. Ricardo's tour included history, art, everyday life in Porto, architecture, current culture, food and his love of Porto. We went all over the city learning about Portugal and this amazing town. Ricardo was very open to what we were interested in and created one of the best walking tours we have ever experienced. After our tour, he gave us so many other suggestions of places to visit in Porto and in our other travels in Portugal. We highly recommend on your visit to Porto, to contact Ricardo (CityTailors), for a customized tour and you will also fall in love with Porto and the people of this city.
