I´m Paulo, born and raised in this great and beautiful city of Aveiro which is also known as the "Portugueses Venice" because of its charm and the many canals that cross it! Since 2010, I have been working in tourism as a professional guide, so I have ample experience with walking tours and knowledge about the amazing city of Aveiro. I can assure you, you will love the time we spend together as my tours are known for being safe, comfortable, and relaxing while you get to know all about what the city is really like. I am passionate about welcoming people, and I am always delighted to socialize with different cultures, people, languages, and listen to their stories, and of course...having the opportunity to get to tell them all about my own! :) My experience in tourism activity allows me to create, develop, and offer true and unique experiences, valuing your time with full respect for your rest and freedom. I will welcome you with a great smile, followed by excellent recommendations on "what to visit, to see and amazing places off the beaten track in Aveiro", and I will give you a guide with a map that shows you how to see everything the city has to offer. My personal philosophy is, "Inspired by you" Do you accept the challenge? Your personal host Paulo

About the Tour

Join me on my "Free walking tour of downtown Aveiro" and you will be guided through this great city with a special guide who has traveled all over the world. This tour focuses on the city center and the old town and also shows you where everything you want to see is located. I'll show you some amazing details only seen with a local and share many experiences. We will walk along the banks of the Aveiro canals and during the tour we will see the famous "Moliceiros" and "Mercantel", the typical local boats that were once used to transport salt and seaweed. You will fall madly in love with their shapes and decorations. In addition, we will discover old warehouses and Art Nouveau buildings with distinctive facades and cross several pedestrian walkways such as the Carcavelos bridge. Then we will see some of the most famous and historic buildings in the city. We will look at the facade of the Igreja da Misericórdia, which is characterized by the white and blue tiles that adorn it. In the same square as the temple is the town hall of Aveiro and its municipal theater. We will meet "José Estevão", one of the most important guys in Aveiro. After an hour and a half of discovery of Aveiro (always a little more ..) we will finish the free walking tour to return to the starting point so that you can explore the city on your own. There are many large traditional tiles near this large Catholic temple. And don't worry about the rest of your trip as I can give you some great tips for amazing food and many other amazing things to do in this city to avoid falling into typical tourist traps.

Paulo Anastacio 06/01/2021

Simplemente MUY BUENO, Totalmente Recomendable. Incluso antes del recorrido, el día anterior, el guía se comunicó conmigo para averiguar si todo estaba bien y si necesitaba algo. Luego, el día del recorrido, un recorrido muy divertido, tranquilo pero siempre profesional y dedicado. Demostró estar informado y orgulloso de su ciudad. Mostró detalles que solo con un guía local es posible ver y llamó la atención sobre detalles brillantes. Recomendó restaurantes y actividades a desarrollar durante la estadía, en concreto Costa Nova, Barra y cómo disfrutar de lo mejor de Aveiro, como ver el atardecer en la playa. Al final le dio un listón al puente de lazos, e incluso nos envió un video con um resumo de tudo o que tínhamos visto. 100 recomendável

The tour was absolutely fantastic! Paulo took his time to show us the best sights in the city centre of Aveiro, but also took us to the beach to enjoy the sunset. You will probably think that this is too good to be real, but believe me - it is real! Have fun with Paulo and experience the real portugeese adventure! 10/10, cheers!

Conhecimento perfeito da cidade e seus detalhes, recomendações e conselhos. Sem dúvida um dos melhores passeios que já fizemos até agora. Voltaremos a Aveiro e com certeza, voltaremos a contratar o Paulo. 100% recomendado
