We had a great tour with Norberto. We explored all of Porto. He is very informative and we had a fun day. Thanks for a wonderful tour.


We spent a delightful day in Porto touring with Norberto. His knowledge was amazing about all the churches and history of Porto. The river cruise was a nice touch and gave us a chance to see Porto and Gaia from the river’s perspective. Overall, we loved the Sao Bento Train Station tour the best. What a fascinating dispay of artwork for such a busy place! Very unexpected, but well worth the time. Thank you for guiding us and sharing your love of Porto.


Wonderful day in Porto with Norberto!
Our group of four adults thoroughly enjoyed our full day tour of Porto with Norberto.
The tour began promptly at 9:30 when we were picked up at our hotel. The van was clean and comfortable.
Our first stop was at Sao Bento train station with its amazing tiles. Next we walked through the oldest streets in Porto on our way to Se Cathedral. During the day we visited many areas that we would not seen on our own. Norberto was able to point out so many things that we would not have noticed otherwise.
Lunch (at our own expense) was at a restaurant in a fishermen’s village. The menu offered many choices but this was a chance to try the local grilled sardines.
The viewpoint at Mosterio da Serra do Pilar offered wonderful views of the Duoro and the Dom Luis bridge.
The included Six Bridges boat tour offered views of the city and its bridges from another angle.
Our final stop of the day, before being taken back to our hotel at 5:30, was a short walk in the area near Igreja do Carmo.
This review only includes the highlights of the day. There was also a lot of interesting conversations and laughter.
Norberto is a very engaging guide who enjoys introducing visitors to his country’s history, Porto’s amazing views and architecture.


We love Porto, and Norberto made us fall in love even more. Thorough, fun details, easygoing. Highly recommend!


Norberto was a fantastic guide! Very professional, cordial, knowledgable, and fun. We spent a great day with him and learned a lot about all aspects of Porto history (lots of interesting stories). He also took us to great spots for pictures taking. I highly recommend him to be your guide.


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 is a wonderful guide and provided us with a delightful day in Porto that was interesting, educational and provided us with a real feel for the city. We would highly recommend Norberto.


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 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.
