A place to discover like a Porto citizen!
Porto is more than a place! You will check it by yourself and nothing better to discover it as (and with) a Porto citizen!
Let yourself be guided through the ancient streets of the typical neighborhoods of the city and come to discover authentic places among the people as friendly as are the inhabitants of Porto.
Please take a look to some places that we'll visit:
*the pedestrian street shopping called "Rua Santa Catarina"
*Facade in tiles from the Chapel of souls
*Facade in tiles from Carmo church
*The main façade (north) of the University's rectory.
*Institute of Photography in Porto's Former Prison
*Viewpoint of Sao Bento da Vitória (located at the old Jewish quarter)
*Aliados Avenue and the city council
*Sao Bento train station
*National theatre Sao Joao
*Funicular dos Guindais
*Torre do Barredo
*Dom Luiz Bridge
*River fronte "Ribeira"
*Serra do Pilar Monastery
*Cable car of Gaia
*Infante house museum
*São Francisco Church
**We can include a cruise on a typical boat called "Rabelo" at the Douro River (about 50 minutes) that I think is interesting and enjoyable!
**Tasting Port wine in a cellar (Taylor's, Ferreira, Sandman. . . )

Pedro was Informative and so flexible with changing his approach based on our conversation along the way. Delightful way to spend a day learning both the Gaia side as well as historic Porto center. Would be glad to visit with him again hopefully someday
