Great overall tour of Porto. Guide was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and gave us a great overview of the history of the city. We walked around many important areas and sights. Would highly recommend this tour for someone looking to do a good overview of the city and to get a lay of the land. At the end of the tour we got to skip-the-line for Lello bookshop. Definitely a must see.

The tour was excellent as was out guide. She explained much about the history of Porto as well as the various sites we visited along the way starting at the Cathedral and making our way down to the river and then back up into the center of town and ending at the bookstore. All in all it was a very good introduction to Porto and have us a good sense of the city as a start for our visit. I would recommend this tour to anyone new to the city as a way to get oriented.

This was a nice guided tour. Our guide Melissa was fun and informative and her English is good. That being said one should note that the meeting spot is very crowded with other groups coming and going and we had a very difficult time finding our group. As the meeting time approached I could not find them. I called Get Your Guide customer service and to their credit a human answered right away and told me he would contact the guide to let them know we were having trouble finding them. We finally did but it would be most helpful if the guide were wearing something identifiable or holding something in the air, anything to enable finding them in the crowd. In addition, we opted for the tour that included entrance to the Lello bookstore. Please note that although the tour details neglect to mention this you must download the bookstore tickets yourself on WhatsApp. We learned that the hard way and did not get our credit for them when we purchased books.
