Hello! I am Gonçalo and I am 19 years old. Currently, I am studying History at Porto University and I thought doing these tours in my city, Amarante, would be a good thing to be in contact with my field of study (which I love) and show people the best my town has (I love it too hahaha)! I am an easygoing, passionate, and curious person so do not be afraid to contact me or question me about anything! During our tour, I will try to tell you the story of my city from Roman times until contemporary times! Ready for the adventure? Book now!

Tour description

Hello? Is anyone there? Oh...I am sorry. I was distracted while looking at the amazing places we have to go to in this small city. And yeah, I confess it I was looking at this History book (I am graduating in History) trying to understand the whole story of what I can call home.

So, during this adventure, we will stroll around my city while I explain to you everything I know.
Our sites will be:
1. Arquinho and 31st January Street
2. São Gonçalo Area: it includes the church (normally, open from 9am-5pm from Monday to Saturday) and the Bridge.
3. «The Prison» Street
4. São Domingos Area ( church open, normally, from 14h30 to 17h30).
5. Magalhães Mansion
7. I will also try to include some trolling around the river margins.

P.S.: Do not be afraid to suggest some changes or extra sites if you feel like it during the tour!

Gonçalo is a very nice guide, he clearly knows lots of stories and curiosities about the city. His family has been part of the region for some time so he's the right person to walk you through the nice town of Amarante.

Muy acertado el haber elegido esta ruta. He Amarante nos sorprendió por su zona històrica. Gonçalo muy profesional, siempre pendiente de nosotros, nos explicó claramente la curiosa historia de esta ciudad. Repetiremos visita cuando haga buen tiempo pra poder pasear por la zona del río

El tour fue mejor de lo esperado, teniendo en cuenta la mañana lluviosa y fría q nos tocó. Nuestro guía, Gonçalo, se esmero en darnos todo tipo de facilidades, ponernos al día sobre la historia de Amarante y aconsejarnos sobre los mejores sitios para comer.

Gonçalo is a university history student and is sharing his knowledge about the local history of Amarante and its place in northern Portugal as well as his and his family’s favorite areas to visit as this is his home town. Thanks Goncalo! This is a great way for you to put your studies into practice by working as a tour guide.
