Full description

On this 3-hour best of Porto walking tour, we'll give you an introduction of Porto, this glorious city which has many secrets to show you, many histories to tell you and many ways to please you.  

Whether from the precious Port Wine, the architecture, the gastronomy, the Historic Center classified as World Heritage Site by UNESCO or the personality of its own people, it is known that the city has a unique enchantment.

Therefore, your local and expert guide will lead you through the city and introduce you to its highlights. Discover some of the famous monuments like the São Bento Railway Station, which has twenty thousand tiles painted by hand, that illustrate events of Portuguese history. 

Then learn more about the Porto Cathedral, and the religious history of Porto once ruled by the power of the church – the Bishop of the city. Continue to Batalha Square where the majestic National Theatre São João is located and explore the local trade and shops there.

We're reaching one of the most famous streets of Porto, Santa Catarina. Take this opportunity to contemplate Majestic Café, considered one of the most beautiful cafés in the world. On the same street, you will find the freshest products in the beautiful Bolhão Market.

Meet the city hall in Avenida dos Aliados, one of the main avenues in town, a location of excellence where the people of Porto gather to celebrate special times. Admire the famous Lello Bookshop with its magnificent staircase linking it to the upper floor. The architecture of this bookshop inspired the Hogwarts staircase in J. K. Rowling's book series “Harry Potter”.

In the same area, see the Clérigos Tower with a panoramic view of the city and the Douro River, which makes the 240 steps climb worth the effort (entrance not included).

Walk down to a viewpoint and lose yourself in the narrow and historical streets of the old streets downhill up to the Stock Exchange Palace

Finally, find the river essence as you reach Ribeira, with the Typical Rabelo Boats and the well-known Port Wine Cellars. Above the river, find the unique D. Luiz Bridge, with 395 meters long and 8 meters wide, and its arch is considered the biggest iron arch. Nowadays is the city mark.

This Walking tour is the perfect reception and a very warm welcome for a first visit.
