I agree with all of the wonderful reviews - Pedro really made our trip special! We spent a whole day in the Douro Valley and Pedro chose the perfect stops/activities for our family. He is so knowledgeable and plans the timing of the day perfectly. And he chose the best restaurant for lunch!! Pedro is always concerned with your comfort and happiness. If you are looking for a guide, Pedro is your guy!

"Pedro of Porto" was the highlight of our trip. He was very accommodating to our children ages 5 and 3. We took a lovely boat ride down the beautiful Douro river while our lil ones got to visit the captain's chair. We then headed to a wine tour with amazing views. While on the our tour, Pedro insisted that he keep the kids occupied by taking them on an adventure outside to pick oranges and lemons. He took us to a local spot that overlooked the river, we ate a delicious veal and salmon. He's amazing!

If you want to learn the history of Porto and see the amazing Porto sights in person Pedro is your guide! Pedro is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of his beautiful city. It was a tour packed with great information. Pedro also had some great suggestions for our family when it came to restaurants and places to go with our children. He was also very considerate & patient as we were traveling with our young children and senior parents Thank you Pedro for a great tour!!

Pedro is so knowledgeable and simpatico, the tour of Porto was a delight despite the rainy weather. Highly recommend Pedro and this day tour of Porto.
We had a great day in Porto with Pedro. We covered everything we want to see in Porto and enjoyed a fabulous lunch. Pedro was very informative and accommodative to our requests and needs. We truly appreciate his kind and friendly time with us today. Thanks a lot Pedro!

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Pedro in the Douro Valley. He was informative and comfortable and helped us truly understand the beauty of that area and the nuances of the wine industry in Portugal. I highly recommend him for anyone seeking both a touring experience and a wine experience.

My husband and I traveled to Porto and Lisbon - 4 days each, with Pedro and had an amazing experience with him. Honestly it was like traveling with an old friend. Great conversation, laughs and experiences throughout our journey. We learned so much about Portugal and the Portuguese culture - which we enjoyed. Touring in and around Porto and Lisbon with great scenic views for memorable pictures, and experienced the BEST meal with a beautiful ocean view. We highly recommend touring with Pedro!!!

Pedro was an amazing tour guide who went above and beyond for us. Besides the excellent tour of the Douro Valley and a local port winery he also took us to an excellent restaurant for lunch. While at the restaurant my daughter realized she'd dropped her phone and he helped her scour the parking lot, but no luck. Luckily Pedro and my daughter tracked it down. He also went out of his way to get us a reservation at his favorite restaurant in Porto that night. Excellent tour and guide. 5 stars

We fell in love with Pedro! He is a wonderful guide! Knowledgeable about the history of his beloved city and he gave us a fascinating sense of current day life in Porto. If you're looking for an extremely memorable day in Porto and the surrounding area, Pedro is your man!

Every minute of the day you could tell that Pedro actually enjoyed showing us his beartiful city. He made sure we had it easy while he went to park the car or ran to fetch so we would not have a tough climb. He gave many exciting choices to pick from. Great choice for lunch as well. All in all I would highly recommend Pedro without any reservation. Your are lucky if you can get him.

Pedro was great ! We enjoyed our trip with him so much. He was informative and fun to be with. Actually a lot more than we expected. We all agree we would highly recommend his tour.
Pedro gave us an outstanding day in the Duro Valley. He was very helpful and interesting. Nothing was too much trouble for him. I highly recommend his tour.

Pedro was a fabulous guide to the DOURO WINE Valley. Knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. You can tell he loves his city and port wine. My father who was in our group is a seasoned wine tourer (Argentina, Italy, France, Spain) and was initially skeptical this would just be another "wine tour". He (along with the rest of our group) were pleasantly impressed with port wine and appreciated its complexities after this educational trip. Plus the bonus of how breathtaking the Douro wine valley is!
Laura MoehlmanUnited States
Pedro was awesome. He has an obvious love of his home country and shared not only Porto, but the Duoro wine country and finally driving us back to Lisbon with wonderful stops in between. Every place that he picked for us was awesome. We ate at tremendous Michelin rated restaurants and had coffee and pastries at wonderful bakeries. The boat ride in the Duoro Valley was gorgeous and the wines that we tasted at Sanderson educated our palated in a way that no place else could ever do so well.

Pedro is an excellent guide I was shown the local sights of Porto and then taken further afield to a very nice restaurant for a keenly priced seafood lunch and also taken to some very nice beaches. Ended up visiting a football stadium (Boavista) and taken to the Monumento aos Herois da Guerra Peninsular that is well worth a visit. Thanks for the Francesinha recommendation. Well done to Porto for beating Benfica.

Pedro loves his job as a tour guide, very knowledgeable in history so for us this was a big plus. The first thing he did was to tell us a bit about Portugal's history which we all found extremely interesting. The itinerary plan he set up for us beforehand turned out to be the best highlight of our trip. We highly recommend Pedro, a 5 star all rounder tour guide, historian and also an excellent driver. He was very accommodating to our requests and went above and beyond to make our visit a memorable one

Pedro was amazing. We went with our four children ages 18-24 and he made it fun for everyone. He took us everywhere and found great restaurants for us to eat at. We enjoyed the tour so much. He went beyond the tour to give us tips and take us out of the way places. Best tour guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm is amazing

Our group of 6 spent an extraordinary day touring the sights and sounds of Porto with Pedro. We were picked up at our hotel in a comfortable, large, high end vehicle and the experience was tailored to suit our interests. Pedro was patient and sensitive to our needs, was warm, friendly and entertaining and did an excellent job imparting history of Portugal and Porto in particular. He left us looking forward to a return trip to explore the Douro Valley in the future with him. Highly recommended as a guide.

We spent two fantastic days with Pedro, who was family by the time we had to part ways. His relaxed but complete Douro Valley tour is ideal in it's low stress coverage of an astoundingly beautiful region. He then drove us from Porto to Lisbon in what turned out to be an excellent tour of it's own - including the University at Coimbra, lunch at the seaside resort of Nazaré, and the medieval Óbidos. Pedro is a gem of a guide and an even better person. Don't miss experiencing him and his spectacular region.

Pedro is an exceptional guide who is flexible and accommodating to traveler interests and sensitive to physical capabilities. He is extraordinarily knowledgeable about Portuguese history and explains it in such a way that his travelers understand the impact on the culture, architecture, government etc. He is one of the best guides we have ever had and we give our very highest recommendation. If you are in Porto or surrounds, choose Pedro. You will not be disappointed.

Billy GroomeUnited States
A very good driver, pleasant personality and a very knowledgeable guide. He was accommodating as we wanted a slightly different tour than one he proposed. Highest rating!
Mary-Lynne FisherUnited States
Pedro is fabulous. Accommodating, knowledgeable, charming, candid. It was a day I will never forget. Even though I took this tour between a Viking river cruise that left and ended in Porto and a Tauck coach tour that spent two days in Porto, I learned more from Pedro than from either group tour. I've found all of the Tours by Locals guides I've had to be excellent, but if possible, he raised my opinion of the company.
Lezli VigueUnited States
Pedro is an excellent guide - providing us with a wonderful full day shore excursion from Leixoes to Porto. He knows his city well and gave us an excellent overview of the city's history including stops at the train station to admire the beautiful tile work, pastel de nata & coffee, scenic overlooks, local fishing village & topped off with a port wine tasting at a local wine shop. Pedro is thoughtful and eager to please his clients. You won't be disappointed if you book one of his tours.
Pauline H.United States
What a wonderful guide....Pedro has a real passion for his town and he gave us a great insight into living in Porto. We have some walking limitations and Pedro did everything to reduce the amount of walking we had to do which made our day so exceptional. I will definitely book with Pedro again whenever we make it back to Pedro (which I think is the best recommendation I could make).
Brenda HambletonUnited States
We arrived in Porto from a river cruise on Easter Sunday. Pedro kindly pick us, and our luggage, up and showed us this beautiful city. He is very knowledgeable and provides a fun and interesting tour even on a day when many things were closed. He dropped us at the airport to continue our adventure.
