Everything about this experience was perfect! Our guide was so sweet and thoughtful and the car he picked us up in was lovely. We enjoyed our sparkling wine as he gave us a spectacular sunset tour of the city which ended at the monastery with a panoramic view of the bay and city below. Once at the restaurant the staff was wonderful, attentive, and welcoming. We had never seen a Fado show before but this performance has made us fans of the style even though we don’t speak Portuguese! To top off a perfect evening the driver found out it was my birthday and let the restaurant know discretely so at the end of the evening the musicians and staff all surprised me by singing happy birthday and dedicating one Fado song to me as a present. I really cannot say enough good things about this activity and I highly recommend it.
Arriving in Porto earlier in the afternoon, we thought that the tour would be a good way to explore some of the city as well as to sample the local food and drink. We were not disappointed. Our guide, Thiago, was charming and with only my partner and me in the 'group', we were able to ask him lots of questions covering a variety of topics (from the history of the city to the politics in Brazil, and of, course the best beer, wine and port to sample), all of which were answered informatively and with humour. By the time the tour had finished, we were both full up with some tasty food and drink so it was good to be able to walk it all off on our way back to our hotel. My main recommendation would be...don't eat anything beforehand so that you have room to enjoy the fabulous petiscos and the local bebidas!
Great food and lovely guide, Ana was a very nice company to have along the way and the food was fantastic. The wine that I drank was very nice even tho I rarely drink wine so I would strongly recommend this tour.
Anna was great company. This tour took us to places we never would have found on our own. Each place was very different, and the food and wine was superb.
Beautiful show, true culture. Transfer was smooth and comfortable, with a bottle of bubbly. definitely a must do, with a tour of the city included.
