What people are saying about Clérigos Tower

We were greeted by Diana, our guide, who took us for three hours to discover Porto, and she was very professional and ready to answer all our questions. Particularly interesting was the fact that, in her presentation of the city, Diana did not limit herself to talking about the monuments or works of art, but tried to get us into the spirit and history of the society of this city. Also very appreciable is the fact that, although the visit was in English, the guide took care to make himself understood even by those who had not had a total command of the language. It is definitely an experience to do!

It was a great way to see the city in a short time, to have fun biking, hear the history and some interesting stories of sights and experience lemon tea and a typical desert. We had a good overview over the city and walked around later.

The bikes were a great way to get around a very hilly city. They were fun to ride and our guide was great. We made enough stops so it wasn’t too tiring and we saw a lot of the sights of Porto.

Our guide was knowledgeable, he took us to all the historic sites and buildings around the city

Walter was a really great tourist guide. We enjoyed the tour very much!!
