Full description

After a convenient pick up at your hotel, your half-day tour begins in the Cathedral of Porto, a Romanesque building where the city of Porto was born. Explore the large square around it and have time to enter the Cathedral - let yourself be impressed by the details of its interior. The Cathedral of Porto is one of the most important buildings not only in Porto but also in the whole country!

Appreciate from afar the Clérigos Tower, designed and decorated by the Italian architect Nicolau Nasoni. Easily seen for different parts of the city center, this tower gives you a stunning view over Porto (no entrance included).

Explore the Aliados Avenue, this main city center, impressive for the façades of the buildings that surround it. The grey tones of this huge avenue will surprise you: there is a picture to be taken everywhere you look! 

One of the main attractions in Porto is a mandatory stop in this tour: the São Bento Railway Station. Enter this train station and observe its twenty thousand painted tiles to discover the History of Portugal. You will surely be surprised: this place looks like a real tile museum! 

It is almost impossible to talk about Porto and not mention the famous Port wine! This tour will provide you with a visit to one of the most famous Port Wine Cellar combined with a delicious Port wine tasting. Exciting, right? Discover all the process behind the conception of this wine, so enjoyed all over the world.

A traditional Six Bridges Cruise in Douro River is a must-do in Porto! Don't worry: a Rabelo boat is waiting for you. Embrace the opportunity to know the history of all the 6 bridges that connect Porto to Gaia. Enjoy this panoramic and relaxing cruise to end your guided tour in a fabulous way.

Enjoyable Land and Water Tour
We enjoyed the tour of Porto in a van with our tour guide giving us information about the history of Porto. Unfortunately, an auto race was going to be held in the city and we were not able to see all the places the tour guide had wanted to show us. We enjoyed the 7 bridges boat ride, but once again, were a bit disappointed that the tour guide on the boat only spoke in Portuguese, so we were not able to understand anything he said. The Winery tour was enjoyable and we have a whole new appreciation for Porto wine.

Good orientation to Porto
Upon arrival in Porto, we enjoyed the "Porto City Tour with Wine Tasting and 6 Bridges Cruise - Small Group - Half Day" tour. The guide was pleasant and informative. We saw many sites in Porto and concluded with a Port tasting at one of the wineries on the Gaia side of the river. Nice overview. The "Bridges cruise" was a joke. Stand in line on the dock for about an hour, then board for a 30 minute boat trip with no narration. Definitely not worth it. I recommend the City Tour only.

Thank you very much for the personal guided tour you took us on Thursday
Thank you very much for the personal guided tour you took us on Thursday, July 12, 2018. Your thorough knowledge of Porto was very evident, and my father Amir and I were both impressed with the level of detail you provided, as well as the beautiful highlight places of the places you drove us too. You were very patient with my father answering all his questions of the region, you provided deep knowledge of the area as a local resident, and the information you provided gave us a very high level overview of the region of Porto. We loved Porto, it was a beautiful sight to see. Thank you very much, for your patience, you careful driving, and sharing your passion and love of your home. It is indeed very beautiful. And I do hope that you continue your studies and do the Phd. Your intricate knowledge of Portugal and Porto was impressive, and obviously shows a lot of intelligence and character on your part — ideal qualities of a PhD. Thanking you again.
