Hello how are you? I am Manu from Santiago de Compostela, I have been in this wonderful city for five years and after visiting all its streets, neighborhoods, etc., I would like to share them with you, many of the places we are going to visit do not appear in tourist guides and are far from the great bustle. You will contemplate unique views of Porto in absolute tranquility walking through super picturesque places. You will learn about the origin of Porto and Portugal, the origin of many meals and foods, such as the famous Port wine, and all told with a very Galician touch of humor that will surely make you smile :) Looking forward to meeting you... A hug strong,Manu

Tour description

THE QUIETEST TOUR, WITH THE BEST VIEWS AND FAR FROM THE BUSSLE OF THE CITY CENTER, WHILE GETTING TO KNOW PORTO!!

Good day!! After almost 5 years in Porto, I have been enjoying this wonderful job of being a tour guide for a year, I like it more every day....

The tour that I offer you is different , although we are not going to leave the center of Porto with its bridges and main monuments at any time, what you will like most is undoubtedly walking through the local neighborhoods (of which there are few left) frequented by tourists, neighborhoods with people from here all their lives, at the same time we will walk through areas with incredible panoramic views, corners that do not appear in tourist guides and very few people know about!!
Porto is an already very busy tourist city and the forecasts are for even more tourism... the center can no longer hear much Portuguese..., on this tour I assure you that we will see our beloved Portuguese women with their typical aprons, the clothes to dry in the balconies, and a lot of bars and taverns where if you feel like it we can eat luxuriously, mingle with locals and the best at a super price.
I promise you that you will regret it and you will take your phone full of unforgettable photos!!

The places we will visit are (they may vary as we agree)

  • Starting from the new Bolhao market
  • Sta Catarina Chapel and its impressive tile mosaic
  • The romantic Majestic café
  • Batalha Square
  • Fontinhas neighborhood, typical Portuguese neighborhood with impressive views.
  • We will cross the Infante Bridge to enjoy top views and see 4 more bridges
  • We will walk along some paths on the Gaia side practically alone, with views of Porto different from those that appear on almost all the tours, I assure you unforgettable photos!!
  • We will cross the Luis I Bridge at the bottom to pass through A Ribeira (the only point with a lot of people) and then go up the most beautiful stairs in Porto towards the impressive Victoria viewpoint, we stop at the O Lanchino tavern to try the best Bolinhos de Bacalhau...
  • We will end up going up the beautiful Sé neighborhood through its wonderful alleys until we reach the Cathedral where this wonderful tour ends.
  • IF it's time to eat I can show you the most typical tavern in Porto with my Rosinha dressed in her apron and her pleasant smile... (she appears in some photos)


Dear travelers bound for Porto, if you want to enjoy a different and peaceful experience of this city, this is your tour!! I wait for you with a big Galician smile, hug Manu!!

Emanuel leads a tour into the area untapped by most tourists. Beautiful vistas, authentic and undisturbed by modernisation history where humble and working Portuguese live and work.

We had a really great tour with Manu. We met at Majestic Café in the center of Porto, and started with his partner singing ‚ave maria‘ on the streets. as she is is professional opera singer, it was an amazing sound. Right after, we visited spots with beautiful views and apart from all the crowded places. Manu shared a lot if really interesting information about Porto, some hidden places and the history of the town. Although, it was only the two of us, Manu did the tour with us and we really enjoyed the walk through Porto. We definitely recommend Manu and his Tour.

Amazing!! You should really try it! It’s a beautiful walk in less touristy areas that immerses us in the life of the locals while admiring the most beautiful views of Porto and Gaia. I highly recommend this tour!
