Ves lugares que no conocerías sin este tour. Calles y barrios con encanto, pero que están fuera dl la idea que llevamos los turistas. Con este tour descubres lo pintoresco de Oporto.

Cassio nos ha enamorado y hecho de nuestro día un recuerdo imborrable en Oporto. Está altamente cualificado para presentarte la ciudad, su historia y los rincones más sorprendentes. Se me hicieron cortísimas las 2 horas. Hubiera estado escuchándole 3h más. GRACIAS por amar tu trabajo.
