Professionalism and smabikidad

We did this tour with Pedro de Your Tours as a guide on August 24. The tour of the city of Porto was very enjoyable thanks to the explanations and curiosities that Pedro told us. It also made it easier for us to make some purchases that we had been commissioned. We enjoyed a great day. We recommend this experience to people visiting Porto.

Professionalism

We were yesterday on the Porto tour and I recommend it without hesitation. The guide Joan is a professional, attentive and friendly, with a detailed knowledge of Porto and everything you ask! He recommended other places to visit and eat excellent. The day is very well scheduled, very good food in a typical restaurant with a modern twist, we did not expect to eat so well. In the afternoon we took a boat trip to see the bridges and finished with a tasting of port wine. I would definitely hire a tour of Portugal with Joan, or any other destination as it explains everything very well. Thank you for that fabulous tour. You can tell he likes his job and transmits it.
