Born in Brazil, passionate artist, I studied music in Germany and worked as an assistant director. But it was my masters in architecture that brought me to Porto. A love of art and an enthusiasm for food and culture are my thing and it's my pleasure to share it all with you! Small cultural observations, folk stories, historical shops, food for rich and poor, special streets, and many inputs on architecture await you! – and of course, the sights 😉

Tour description

- *In case of rain, we move as possible between covered areas to reduce wetness :) even though you might want to carry an umbrella 😁 -

A tour for those who want to get a good insight into the history and culture of Porto and take a pleasant free tour, without the classic long lectures.

Emphazasing the historical development of culture, architecture and art but chilled and in good mood. We grab some coffee if some are still sleepy, some beer if too happy, some pastry if too cravy, breaks and detours - its YOUR tour though! :D

.... and the BEST: you will receive from me a Maps Link with all the best insider tips for food, drinks and more :D

• Interesting views

• Architectural and cultural insights
• Break for a Coffee and Pastry or Wine :)

Such an amazing tour through porto. Gabriel is a very well informed, well spoken and friendly guide. He led us to the most important places in porto (for tourists of course) and was very open to questions and needs... like to get some coffee, or have a closer look to some buildings, shops. So all in all it was great and i would definitely recomend his tour to anyone. Thank you Gabriel!
