We were exceptionally lucky that no other people took part in this tour apart from us - so the tour was very personal. The tour was extremely informative and entertaining - not even the heavy rain could mitigate that - and in German, which is not so easy in Porto. The location of the old town is not recommended for people with limited walking ability. Thanks to our extremely friendly and charming tour guide.

Ballad in the various districts of the city. Good French. Good explanations of the story. A guide for the three of us, at our own pace. Kindness and politeness trying to make us avoid the ribs. Belvederes, monuments the key points of Porto. On foot. After 1h45 stop to taste the pasteis de nata. Also gives us advice for the stay. Disappointment because several transport stop or repair (funicular, tram etc ...)

Our guide Susanna was amazing. She is very passionate and energetic and we saw a lot in the time we had. She also gave us loads of tips for things to do after the tour (and where to buy original or replicas of the porto tiles). We had a really fun time discovering Porto with her.
