What people are saying about Rua Santa Catarina

Very rewarding visit, Vania is passionate and succeeds in transmitting her passion and knowledge of Porto to us. We loved this visit accompanied by Vania, we will do it again with pleasure! The food tour is very interesting, you learn a lot of things and taste a lot of food! Our guide took the time to explain all the details of the gastronomy to us, a real authentic visit, to be repeated !! Thanks Vania!

Diana was a wonderful tour guide! We really enjoyed all the food, and found we had just enough time at each venue. The drinks provided in each venue also complemented each dish well, and the port tasting at the end was the perfect way to end things. The walking isnt too intense so although we booked it as a young couple it would be suitable for families or older people too.
