Visit Porto from Lisbon
It was great to be able to visit Porto in our short stay in Portugal. Of course, most part of the city will have to wait for our next trip, but we got to see the historic center, the cathedral and visit a Port wine cellar, so it was pretty good for a first time! Our guide Tiago was really fun and informative. The train from/to Lisbon was comfortable and quick, we just got in and showed our tickets when asked for them.

Świetna wycieczka z Lizbony
Gorąco polecam. Port jest wyjątkowy. Uwielbiałem degustację wina. Podróż pociągiem była bardzo wygodna, a ponieważ przewodnik czekał na nas w Porto, było bardzo wygodnie.

Tour to Porto: Port Wine Tasting in the Cellars - Full day
If you want to visit Porto for the day, this is the best option. Although we had to go to the train station in Lisbon on our own, the guide in Porto was already waiting for us and was really lovely. I think his name was Tiago?! He told us everything about Porto and was very patient. The wine cellar tour was very interesting, vino de oporto is so rich and savory! I highly recommend this experience.

Tour to Porto from Lisbon
Es war eine großartige Möglichkeit, ein bisschen Porto kennenzulernen, ohne die Nacht zu buchen und Gepäck zu tragen. Die Keller und die Weinprobe waren wirklich interessant und die Kathedrale ist wunderschön! Unser Reiseführer in Porto, Miguel, war sehr informativ und mit viel Sinn für Humor.

Good way of visiting porto from lisbon in 1 day
Made this trip with 3 friends leaving Lisbon by train and heading enthusiastic to Porto. Our guide Luisa was very nice all the time explaning and anwsering our questions. Porto is a lovely city and we enjoy the cellars too. It´s a good way to visit porto when you are in lisbon and you don´t have so many free days or you want to visit many other places in Portugal, like us. Hugs.

I had a lovely time with Living Tours in Porto
We have sweet and fantastic guide (who is actually from Lisbon) dealing with many different languages o the bus. He was a star! juggling Portuguese, Spanish and English in the same time. I fall in love with Porto and if you would like to see this extraordinary city I will advise you to book a tour with Living Tours and then spend 2-3 more days just walking the streets. Many thanks :)
