Didn’t feel like a tour:) intimate small group of about 14. A 2 hour sailboat cruise enjoying a glass of port while passing by the big tourist boats filled with people! We were so glad to be on our boat!!! Was an amazing way to see porto all the way from the Atlantic Ocean to the bridge. Amazing views and circled few times in the historic central area. Didn’t feel rushed and was very enjoyable:) highly suggest.

Super moyen de découvrir la ville et d'en apprendre un peu sur son histoire. Cela permet de faire un tour sans se fatiguer pour repérer les lieux à explorer à pied. Le guide nous a également recommandé des restaurants sympa et typiques. Je recommande cette expérience

we had a great guide - Ines! Friendly, informative and she took time to stop and share stories with us. brought us to a quiet but strategic site to catch sunset. that was a great surprise for us! Thank you for making our one day in Porto memorable & enjoyable.

This was the perfect way to get the overall feel of the city. Andre was a great guide, and the small TukTuk is the best way to travel to small streets.

Brilliant activity, our guide (I didn’t get his name ☹️) was articulate, intelligent, knowledgeable and friendly. A must when visiting Porto!
