A wonderful overview
I spent two days in the city of Porto, and decided to do a free walking tour. After the quick internet booking, I went to the indicated point and found the responsible ones. The boat tour is very quiet and lasts about 50 minutes. It can be done whenever we want and at the time we want

An unforgettable guided tour
If you are looking for a tour to know the history and curiosities of the city of Porto I recommend Living Tours. The guide was from the area of Porto, so he had a lot of knowledge about the place. He also gave several tips for very good restaurants.
