This was our favorite activity of the entire trip. We were picked up by Bernardo, after which we were driven to a beach with good waves for beginners. After a few tries, you managed to stand on your board and catch some waves. Bernardo gave great tips and the videos were sent to us the day after. We can recommend this activity to anyone who is going to visit Porto!

The best way to have a general tour of the city. Go around each one of the lines (Blue and Orange), and then choose what you want to visit/know. The option with a boat trip and visit to a wine cellar is worth it.

Really good experience, great instructor, great group of people and just a lot of fun learning to surf!

Tourist bus with stops at key points of visits to main monuments, cruise ships and wineries

Everything went great, the surf instructor was nice and we had a very nice experience!
