Porto: a cosmopolitan city, historic, medieval, modern, fun, full of tradition and with a unique gastronomy.

Although hilly, navigating the steep, narrow alleyways of Porto are better on foot.

It´s going to be a day of history and secular monuments. We`ll walk through the medieval city, visit São Bento Train Station and get to know the historical significance of the magnificent hand-painted tile panels.

The Cathedral, located at the highest point of the city, will be another point of visit. Then, we`ll take a walk through the medieval city and pass the oldest street in the city.

Our walk will lead us to the Allies Square and the City Hall, the Clérigos Tower, Lello Bookshop, Churches of Carmo and Trindade and to the amazing viewpoint of Victoria.

We descend to Ribeira, the heart of the Unesco Heritage, through the medieval stairways to appreciate the typical houses of the city. Here you have the opportunity to do the six bridges cruise (optional). After crossing the bridge Luis I through on the lower deck, you`ll participate in a visit to a Port Wine Cellar including wine tastings.

Afterwards, there`s a walk along the Gaia docs to be dazzled by the sights over Porto Downtown. By cable car (or walking), you`ll reach the most extraordinary viewpoint over the city.

If you do not have vertigo, we’ll walk along the upper deck of Luis I bridge for wonderful views and return to Porto side.

Hands down the best Tour Guide we had during our stay in Portugal!

My daughter and I took a walking tour with Norberto Lopes Pinto in Porto. He was by far the best tour guide we had during our stay in Porto and Lisbon. He is very knowledgeable about the history of his Country. Whether it be architectural, political, or about local gems. His personality is warm and inviting, with a good sense of humor. He created the perfect balance of pointing something out and “moving on” and “staying still” to take in, and learn about about something of important interest. Having Norberto as our first guide raised the bar for each guide after him. A tough act to follow! We’re so thankful to have had him show us Porto. Highly recommended.

Norberto did a great job for our first day in Porto. He met us at the airport and gave us a combination driving tour and walking tour thru Porto. We went to the best overview sites for photographs from both sides of the river. Norberto was very knowledgeable in Porto and the Portuguese history.

Norberto was our tour guide for the day and it was money well spent. He met us on time at our hotel and we spent the next 6 hours seeing all the highlights of Porto. The vehicle was very comfortable; clean and well kept. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a historical view of Porto as well as insights into the everyday life We had lunch by the mouth of the Duoro. The food was amazing fresh seafood all for a very reasonable price. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Norberto and would highly recommend.

This is a great tour and I highly recommend it. Our guide met us at our hotel which made it stress free. He was on time, polite and knowledgable. We learn much about the history, culture and people of Porto. Choose this guide!!

Norberto picked us up at our hotel in Porto, shortly upon our arrival, and led us on an informative, enthusiastic and interesting journey around Porto, with a walk across the bridge to Gaia, and a sky ride with beautiful views over the 2 cities. He gave tips on what we might want to explore that were useful over the next 2 days. Norberto clearly loves guiding and our time with his was most enjoyable as well as educational.
