PLEASE BOOK TO OUR E-MAIL TILL 10PM OF THE DAY BEFORE THE TOUR

Portofreetour guides are not professional tour guides but enthusiastic, friendly individuals with knowledge of Porto who will accompany you on a visit of the city, take advantage of their passion and discover hidden, unusual places off the tourist trail. Together we designed a few "caminhos" through our city, giving you a glimpse of what Invicta's all about. Zigzagging between past, present and potential futures, we try to give an insight into our hometown that will enable you to understand and enjoy it evermore. Our visits are simple and friendly : we try to limit our tours to 6 people maximum, so you can get to sightsee without the crowd, we also like to have a small break (Porto's hilly), to chill out and chat, no rush we're in Portugal. Average tour duration : 2h or 3hTime : 10/11am or 2/3pm

We had a great morning. Juan was really nice, he also recommends aditional things to do and places to eat. If you want to know the city and history and have fun in Oporto this is one of the things to do.

Booked the tour with Alex. He knows everything about the history of Porto and its architecture. Very friendly and open for questions. Not only he takes you to the touristic highlights, but also shows the "real" Porto! Great way to get to know the city.

It was nice to spend this time with Alex, and It has been useful to make a plan for the rest of our stay in order to get from Porto the rest memories cause of his suggestions. I missed a bit of history of the city, about the beginning... And also some interesting stories or legends that could have happened... More

We were lucky that no one else came to our tour so we got a private tour with Alex around Porto. He showed us some very cool spots, some of which were local secrets rather than your typical tourist hotspots. The tour went for almost 3 hours but well worth it. He was also nice enough to give us a... More

We frequently do walking tours when we arrive at a new city in order to get to know the city a bit more. Catarina was our guide and she was outstanding. She has a vast knowledge of the city in many aspects....political, historical, architectural and cultural. She takes you to places that are off the beaten track & that you... More

I was visiting for business and on my arrival day only had a few hours to explore the city. Rather than waste time trying to find my way around I booked a walking tour with Catarina and am so glad I did! One of the highlights of my trip. She knows her stuff, tells stories in an interesting and memorable... More

Catarina! Before I say anything else- Thank you! You made us feel like we had a friend in Porto even though we'd all just met. Porto free tour keeps it lovely and intimate with just eight guests. It was the perfect number to interact with each other and have a great time getting to know the city. Catarina was kind... More

We had Alex for a guide and really enjoyed the tour. We got an in depth view of the city, learnt about its history and secrets usually reserved for locals. A really fun way to cover the city. Thank you, Alex! :)

Catarina met us on time, she is passionate about her city and she is extremely knowledgeable regarding the history, architecture, the culture - more than we could have hoped for. We feel like extremely fortunate to have met such a wonderful and interesting person, and recommend this tour 100%. Thank you Catarina.

We spent late afternoon into evening walking the historic center and stopping for a bite to eat with Catarina, who from her professional work makes sense of the city's architectural and political history of about two millennium. Passionate about a need to preserve spaces for the local population to live in the historic center, she helped us recognize that the... More
