Orquidea was a superb guide, intelligent, knowledgeable, and personable. If we had already seen a site or a site was difficult to access, she immediately offered an alternative. We take guides not only to see the sites but also to get a flavour of the city or country. Orquidea was informed, interesting, and charming. She also handled a Mercedes van well within the tight confines of old Porto - impressive! Recommend her highly and will employ her again for other tours.
