Wherever we travel, the first thing we do is take a free walking tour - the guides always work very hard to insure a knowledgeable tour and Philip was excellent. He made time for questions, informed us of the important details of each place we went to. He was great and I would absolutely recommend Guru!

Our tour guide, Diogo, was absolutely amazing! Entertaining, energetic, full of love for his City of Porto , passionate storyteller with great history knowledge. With his great sense of humor he found the way to attract attention of every member of his group, which was just another proof of his unique personality that kept people from 8 different countries fully engaged with his storytelling during 2,5 hours.

I would give 6 stars if the system allows. Most fun and informative history and anectdotes. Very considering in arranging the route - Leaving time for toilet in the resturant for free and taking elevator to reduce the uphill effort..... highly recommend.
