Fantastic tour gave us SO MUCH interesting information about Porto and its history, its rivalry with Lisbon and Portugal’s rivalry with Spain, as well as the competition between the church and the merchants for control of the city’s development. Ricardo, a history teacher, was our guide and was able to answer every question and give colour to the information. Highly recommend.

Ricardo was amazing. He really made the tour special by having a lot of knowledge, going at our pace, and being a genuine delight to be around. He was very accommodating and was also very engaging. Absolutely loved the tour and would recommend to anyone. Really saw a lot of Porto and brought it to life.

Ricardo provided us a three hour tour of Porto including a review of Portuguese history from pre-Roman times up to the present day and of many of Porto’s most famous landmarks. As a professional history teacher he cares passionately about his subject and so we loved our time together. Strongly recommended.
