We‘ll start the tour by meeting you up at your hotel and explain the plan for our tour.
The rhythm will be slow-paced with lots of stops to soak in the views, take photos, learn about the history of Porto, and to answer all your questions.
From your hotel we’ll make our way to the Sé Cathedral and it´s neighborhood, one of the oldest in the city.
Afterwards we’ll make our way through the narrow streets to the river and follow the road as we make our way towards the beautiful views by the mouth of the river. Lets take a photo with Miragaia neighborhood.
Then we start to make our way back to the city’s old neighborhoods that we will use to learn how Porto grew along the centuries. From Virtudes and Vitória to Clérigos we visit and see some of the best viewpoints overlooking the city and some of its most famous monuments and landmarks.
We will go through places like Carmo Church, Clérigos tower, Lello bookstore and João will explain the history behind them.
As we make our way slowly to cross the river, we will cross St. Catherine’s tradicional commerce neighborhood.
Time to cross to Gaia, on the other side of the river Douro and make our way to the best views of Porto. Included more amazing photo opps ;)
João, your private guide, will explain all that we did and saw as the city and the tour come together as the best overview of Porto, while you take your time to enjoy the beautiful views.
Unfortunately we are coming to the end of our tour and we’ll start to make our way back to drop you off.
