This is a not-to-be-missed experience! Our guide, John Maximus, was amazingly brilliant. His depth of knowledge, not just of food, but also of the history of Portugal and Porto is just so good. We were taken to small eateries and also ‘old’ places that tourists wouldn’t really have a chance of finding themselves. The food we ate was fantastic and plentiful. Despite everything we experienced, it was all done at a relaxed pace. When we told John we didn’t drink and one of us is vegetarian, he just took it in his stride, and organised alternatives. I suffer from arthritis, but the pace was very doable, with plenty of time to pause and sit. I highly recommend this tour, particularly at the beginning of your stay in Porto.

A really good idea to explore the city. It took us about 1:30 hours to complete all the puzzles, but since we played it on our last day in Porto, we already knew the city quite well. The puzzles offer a really nice route through the city, passing a great many sights that are not part of the puzzle. So you can always make small detours to museums and churches while you're on your way to the next puzzle. The difficulty of the puzzles is limited, so it's also good to play with the children and if you have to wait in line, there are tips that make the solution easier or explain it.

It was a very nice city tour and we enjoyed it a lot! I would highly recommend it to everyone! :-)

Loved this fun way to explore Porto at our own pace and all the information shared..

Very nice once again, it is the ideal activity to begin your trip with!
