Tour description

Join us and discover the corners of the magnificent city of Porto from the hand of the best guides in the city!

Experienced guides, graduates in History or Art , but above all with a great passion for accompanying travelers so that they can enjoy their city to the fullest.

The tour starts at Praça da Liberdade, at the bottom of Aliados Avenue, right next to McDonalds. During the tour we will unravel the history of Porto , its curiosities , traditions and the most important monuments .
Starting the tour we go to the Sao Bento Station to briefly explain the history of Portugal surrounded by 20,000 tiles . We continue to the Café Majestic and the Bolhao Market , one of the busiest areas of the city, with streets full of shops and small Art Nouveau houses protected by UNESCO.

After a short technical stop to go to the bathroom or eat some cream, we continue to the Galeries of Paris and the Lello and Irmao Bookstore , the famous bookstore that JK Rowling drew inspiration from for her Harry Potter story.
Finally, we will move towards the University and the Churches of Carmo with its beautiful Lions fountain crowning the square and the Clérigos Tower , an exceptional witness to the composition. Be careful with the Tower because it has 243 steps and although the viewpoint is worth it, the Mirador de la Victoria where we end up explaining the Carnation Revolution is simply incredible. The best photo of the Cathedral, the Luís I Bridge and the Duero River with its wineries.
