Our guide Patricia is very knowledgeable and super friendly. We loved the history and stories she would share about Porto and brought us a very memorable last day in the city. The pride of Porto would come alive through The Age of Discoveries and why invincible is on Porto’s coat of arms. She knew each street and the right places for the best views. Thank you Patricia!!
