A complete picture about past and present! You`ll fall in LOVE with Porto!

After picking you up from your hotel, lodging or Leixões Cruise Ship Terminal*, we’ll have a full day covering all: modern and ancient Porto, the neighbor city of Gaia to appreciate the views over Porto, the Port Wine cellars and Foz district.

We’ll explore the Old Quarter, including Cathedral and the medieval city, São Bento Train Station and get to know the meaning of the magnificent hand-painted tile panels and Ribeira, which is the heart of the Unesco Heritage.

Uptown, other highlights of our tour are the Allies Square and the City Hall, the Clérigos Tower, Lello Bookshop, Churches of Carmo and Carmelitas, the Jewish Corner and to the amazing viewpoint of Victoria.

For lunch, I will suggest a little place called Afurada, a small fishing village where you can have excellent options of fish or meat with a truly local environment.

Gaia offers a beautiful riverside and stunning views over Porto. We’ll discover Serra do Pilar belvedere, for the most spectacular viewpoint over Porto and Luis I bridge.

At the Port Wine Cellars, you will have a great experience on a private visit including Port Wine tastings.

A relaxed drive along the shore towards Foz district stopping at the lighthouse at the mouth of Douro river, drive through Brazil Avenue, by the Atlantic, and passing the “Cheese Castle”, will complete your beautiful day.

* Notice: Shore Excursions are also available: If you come by cruise, I can pick you up at the Cruise Ship Terminal and drop you off there again. The tour (and price) is the same as described.

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.

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.
