At OptimusTours we have many years of experience in the world of tourism; In our tours you will only have the best Accredited Official Guides (historians, philologists, art historians) who will make you fall in love with their cities. Our guides will tell you about the history, the heritage of each of them, but also, like good locals, they will tell you about the best areas to eat, where to go shopping and what to see in the cities, going beyond traditional travel guides because what we want is that you feel part of them, that you experience the city not as a tourist, but as one of us.

Irene fue la mejor guía que pudimos tener para conocer Oporto. Desde el minuto 1 fue muy cercana, y lo hizo todo muy ameno. Grandes conocimientos, como licenciada en historia del arte que es, gran calidad de los contenidos, nos hizo participar en todo momento, receptiva para cualquier pregunta o comentario. Se nota que LE ENCANTA su trabajo, y así nos lo transmitió. Enhorabuena!

First time visiting Porto. Only had knowledge from reading about the destination. Diogo was almost perfect in his blend of information, history, humor, & tips for his city. The pace of the walk was very good over the hilly city. It was a great way to get dialed in to a new town!
