Excellent tour guide (André), who was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Tour groups are very small (indeed, we were lucky enough to be the only people on our particular tour), and the service was faultless. Within the 3 hours, which were kept to schedule, we saw all the best spots and sights around the historic centre of the city, with excellent historical context and explanation and even some great personal recommendations for restaurants and other spots to visit in the city. Being of Portuguese background originally, I already had some knowledge of the history, my partner didn not, yet we both learnt plenty throughout. Would definitely recommend and use again.

Ricardo our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and informative. He made the tour worthwhile as we learned a lot about the history of Porto. The tour was easy paced and allowed us time to take pictures or spend more time at the locations. He covers most of the major sites in our walking tour so it was a great way to experience the city. We also had skip the line for Lello bookshop which was also a highlight of the tour. If possible don’t skip this! Highly recommend the tour. Only suggestion we have is about the meeting location. It was not clear what they meant by pillory. There is actually a pillar in front of the cathedral. Would be helpful if they carry a flag or a sign to make it easier to spot them.

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.
