Arriving in Porto earlier in the afternoon, we thought that the tour would be a good way to explore some of the city as well as to sample the local food and drink. We were not disappointed. Our guide, Thiago, was charming and with only my partner and me in the 'group', we were able to ask him lots of questions covering a variety of topics (from the history of the city to the politics in Brazil, and of, course the best beer, wine and port to sample), all of which were answered informatively and with humour. By the time the tour had finished, we were both full up with some tasty food and drink so it was good to be able to walk it all off on our way back to our hotel. My main recommendation would be...don't eat anything beforehand so that you have room to enjoy the fabulous petiscos and the local bebidas!
For our first day in Portugal, I decided to *book a city tour of Porto for me and my mom and it’s since been a highlight for us! Our guide, Gonçalo, was absolutely amazing, patient, informative, and friendly; my mom has been raving about him for days now. We covered so much ground in the trilling transportation of a Tuk Tuk, shaded and protected from the sun (though optional to remove the shades). We definitely would not have been able to see as much as we did without the help of this tour. We never felt rushed and our guide took the time to answer all questions we had. This tour is a great introduction to Porto, as this allows you to follow up and spend more time in your favorite places. * I booked two tours back to back to create a 4-hour tour for us.
Our family of 5 enjoyed every minute. My kids Ages 4,6,9 loved the little cars And the open air and the fast paced. We saw many more sights than what we would have seen on our own. Our kids would have been too hot, tired, and hungry for us to try to navigate and park and walk to all the locations. We also got to venture off the beaten path to some great photo spots that were not packed with tourist.
Best way to see Porto and get around town! Our guide was nice enough to show us a few local secrets and was very knowledgeable of this beautiful city
Guide extremely knowledgeable. Totally fantastic. Really nice guy. Most enjoyable excursion
