We decided to pay a little extra and go for the private tour for 4 people, us and the other couple we travelled with and it was money very well spent. This tour was incredible and we could not possibly have asked for a better tour guide than Maria, who knew EVERYTHING there is to know about Porto and took us to some fantastic places. She was enthusiastic about her beautiful home city and engaged with us for the whole 3 hours, constantly answering our questions without any complaint and even taking pictures for us as we went. We had not been to Porto before, so having someone so knowledgable showing us around was the perfect way to spend a few hours on foot walking around the city, we could not recommend this tour highly enough.

Our guide is a long time resident of Porto, but spoke English excellently. Our group was small compared to other tours we saw during our 3 hour walk. Our guide sent us supplemental information after the walk if we wanted it. My wife and I asked for the supplemental information and found it helpful for continuing our exploration of Porto.

We covered the old section of the city on the North side of the Douro River. This is the area where many visitors stay, so the tour will help you to find your way through the twisty streets. We found that using Google or Apple Maps was not as easy in Porto as in Northern Europe, North America, South America or Asia, so the tour really made a difference for our visit.

Our guide covered culture, history, religion, cost of living and we even had a pastry break for the delicious Portuguese tarts. Our guide answered all of our questions in detail and candour. We highly recommend this tour.

If your interest is port wine you won’t get a lot of depth in this tour, however you can easily walk to the south side of the river to take a distillery tour and taste but you must make sure whether a booking is required.

We booked a private walking tour from 10am to 1pm, our guide Fátima was very friendly and patient with our questions (we were a group of 5 adults). She was knowledgeable and passionate about the whole tour with lots of special info/tips. We enjoyed our tour with her and would recommend it to people visiting Porto for the first (or second) time, as we got to see and learn about a lot of interesting things

The tour was a disappointment. Our guide knew very little about the history of Porto and Portugal and was not interested in it. The tour started with a 20 mins delay as we had to wait for late-comers. The listed itinerary is not accurate, for instance we did not visit Mercado do Bolhao or Majestic Cafe, instead we spent 30 minutes in the hall of the railway station. It was not worth our time.

My wife and I enjoyed our tour, It provided a great overview of Porto—what to see and how to make it happen. Our guide was high spirited and covered the practical aspects of visiting Portugal, although she also touched upon the history and culture of the city. Apart from the beautiful Sao Beno train station we did not go into any buildings. That activity would be left for other excursions, which could easily be accomplished without a guide.

Teresa was a fantastic tour guide. She gave us an in-depth, immersive experience and we learned a great deal of information about Porto. We learned more than expected and Teresa provided detailed explanations regarding the rich history of the city. Most importantly, she gave us a local perspective and took us through the neighborhoods and paths we wouldn’t have found by ourselves. She was extremely friendly, warm, accommodating and knowledgeable. We were constantly asking her questions and she was happy to answer everything. Bonus - she also took great photos of us and provided us with a list of recommendations afterwards. A tour guide cannot get any better than this.

A very wet Sunday afternoon in November was brightened up by Teresa's enthusiasm and obvious love of the city. This tour set us up for further exploration in later days in much better weather. Her restaurant recommendation proved a gem.

The walking tour was really nice and Teresa our guide has gone over and beyond in explaining the city centre with lots of interesting stories. I think a walking tour gives you better the inside of a city and with a local guide you are told lots of first hand stories you wouldn't know otherwise. I would definitely recommend

The guide was knowledgeable about Porto. Though English was not his first language, he did a very nice job sharing the history of Porto and his, obvious love of his city. He even provided enough breaks, keeping everyone in the group happy.
