  • Porto: Guided Walking Tour and Lello Bookshop

    2. Porto: Guided Walking Tour and Lello Bookshop

    Learn about the history of Porto as you walk along its medieval streets on a 3-hour guided tour. Discover its most important buildings, visiting monuments dating from the 12th to the 19th century. Admire the Cathedral, Clérigos Church, the São Bento railway station, Aliados Avenue, the Bolhão Market, the Carmo and Carmelitas church, the Lello bookshop and others. See the wooden rabelo boats that have been used for centuries to transport people and goods along the Douro River. Marvel at the interior of the Lello bookshop, often called the most beautiful library in the world.

    We had a lovely guide called Rua Joaodas Regras, but unfortunately Porto suddenly shut down many places of interest due to the Corona Virus. It was a bit disappointing but we still had a lovely tour. We were told we could get a refund for the Lello Bookshop tickets that our guide had only purchased the day before. We learnt a lot about Porto's history and found the tour very interesting.

I went on this tour with my daughter. My prior knowledge of Harry Potter is limited to the films, but my daughter was there :-). Carlos was a great guide and we had lively conversations. From my point of view, on the tour you get all the relevant information about Harry Potter and his inventor. There was also plenty of information and good tips about what to do around the city

Live an exciting moment with the writer of Harry Potter and therefore with the Hero of young people, while discovering "big" and "small" things of Porto, with an interesting guide then this walk is for you. Dreams and realities served in friendliness and kindness what better to enhance your stay in Porto… ..
