This was by far the best tourist activity I have had. Ricardo was an amazing tour guide and kept us engaged with stories on the way to the mountains. We had cookies from the oldest bakery in Porto and eventually went up the mountains. The drive up and down the slopes was insane and felt like a roller coaster while we screamed and took pictures. We came down at different points to hike and explore the hills and Ricardo took pictures of us and eventually made a 2 minutes slide show of our exploration. We finished the tour with a beautiful lunch by a spectacular view of the high hills and spring water. It was a dream

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with our guide, Milena, who has a fine grasp of the English language and a charming and outgoing personality. The day is well-thought out with welcome stops along the way to take in the beauty and to stretch your legs. The two visits to the Porto makers were informative and entertaining. Lunch was nice and the boat ride at the end was a nice change in perspective.

Paulo was amazing with our group and our kiddos in particular. The tour was on time, the group was perfect and Paulo was perfect with a mix of knowledge and history. I highly recommend this tour to anyone in Porto for a couple of days!

The best tour I've attended. Excellent and interesting guides, delicious wine, hearty and mouth-watering lunch. Recommends!

the TukTuk send you everywhere what you have to see in Porto. Excellent!
