Porto: Harry Potter’s Inspiration Tour
- Duration: 3 hours
- Private group
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!
Firstly the quality of the e-bikes was very good which isn't always the case when you hire bikes and secondly Valter our guide was good fun and both knowledgable and passionate about his home city of Porto. Porto is very hilly but the bikes dealt with these easily. Valter took us along interesting streets and passages stopping at points of interest or where the views were amazing. It was really interesting to learn about Porto's history but also about the culture that exists today. We would highly recommend this tour.
This was a fantastic two hours tour, really informative and perfect for navigating all the steep hills which we would never have managed on foot Our guide was Dutch and spoke perfect English We certainly felt we got our money's worth It was good fun and we covered a lot of ground The meeting point was a little difficult to find because they are currently recovering from a fire and the signage was not very good Lots of stops for photos and general questions
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.
Gostei do tour, mas pensei que fossemos entrar na livraria Lello. Sei das dificuldades, por causa da fila, mas constava a entrada no roteiro. Além disso, achei o passeio na vinícola um pouco corrido. No restante foi tudo muito bom. Adorei a guia Cláudia. Culta, simpática, atenciosa e apesar de não precisar, percebi que ela tem um inglês perfeito.
