Ricardo our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and informative. He made the tour worthwhile as we learned a lot about the history of Porto. The tour was easy paced and allowed us time to take pictures or spend more time at the locations. He covers most of the major sites in our walking tour so it was a great way to experience the city. We also had skip the line for Lello bookshop which was also a highlight of the tour. If possible don’t skip this! Highly recommend the tour. Only suggestion we have is about the meeting location. It was not clear what they meant by pillory. There is actually a pillar in front of the cathedral. Would be helpful if they carry a flag or a sign to make it easier to spot them.

Very complete visit of the city by walking in the different districts. Guide (Anna) friendly and interesting. Great introduction to discover the city of Porto at the start of your stay!

Great Tour! Very nice guide who spoke good German and took a lot of time and also answered all our questions. We booked for 4 people and it was really just the 4 of us with the guide.

Excellent tour for the family. We had teenagers and a 7 year old and Carlos was able to make it interesting and walkable for everyone.

Our guide Ana was very informative and charismatic. We had a great time and saw a lot of the city.
