Pedro was a fantastic and friendly guide. He was aware of what we wanted to see/do and designed a perfect day in Porto for us. We told everyone we met about him and your company. We will absolutely use your service in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the nice review. Hope to have the chance to welcome you or your parents again in Porto.

Pedro was amazing, along with this tour we also did the River Duero Wine tour with him. He was pleasant, insightful, courteous and professional. The Top Ten Attractions in Porto is a must for anyone with limited time in Porto, and Pedro is the perfect guide. Not enough words to express our gratitude for showing us his Porto.

We have used ToursbyLocals many times in many cities and enjoyed them all but Pedro was one of the best guide's we've had. He put together a bespoke 4 hour tour of Porto and the surrounding area with a combination of private car/walking as our knees don't like a 4 hour walking tour ! Pedro is very knowledgeable and has a very warm personality. Result was a really enjoyable/educational 4 hours. We'll hire him again if possible when we return.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, John, for the amazing (but true) review. It becomes an easy task when we have the pleasure to walk around with a lovely, fun and motivated couple like you. Look forward to show you the rest of Porto and northern Portugal.
Really good tour, great guide and very interesting information and places. Pedro is very nice and a very good guide, he knows a lot about the city and about little important details.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you the review. And again, sorry for all the rain. :-) If you ever decide, in the future, to come back to the north of Portugal I would like to compensate you with other outdoor activities. There's a lot more to see and experience.

Our day in Porto with Pedro was an amazing experience. He tailored the tour accommodating our every request. We appreciated the local and informative insights. Pedro connected well with each of us responding to questions making the tour pertinent (ages spanned from 24 to 60 years old). He shared his love and knowledge of the beautiful city of Porto! We want to return and will definitely request Pedro as our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for review, and for letting me know how you enjoyed the experience. I'll stay right here, waiting for your next visit, and to take you beyond Porto.

Pedro gave us a comprehensive tour of Porto which fit perfectly with the time window that was available while our ship was in port. He had a very comfortable chaueffer driven van that permitted us to walk portions of the city while the driver leap-frogged from point to point, allowing us to see more of the city within our limited time available.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the recognition of our efforts to make your time with us as confortable as possible. And with no downtimes at all. Look forward to hear your next plans to visit the north of Portugal. There are some real interesting places like Guimaraes, Braga and Aveiro.
Agnes G.United States
My husband and I hired Pedro for two days : to see Porto and on the following day to see Guimaraes & Braga . He delivered five star service on both days. He catered the tours to our individual requests , exactly as I discussed with him prior to our arrival . Not only that he met expectations but he exceeded them in every way: impressive historical knowledge , perfect English , new very comfortable car with A/c & internet . He showed us Porto off beaten path . Local restaurants of his choice were great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It was a truly fun adventure traveling through Portugal with you. Hope to see you again in the future. Soon.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking some time to write to me.
Expect fog for the early part of the day in Porto but be assured it won't dampen Pedro's enthusiasm for this lovely city. He is well versed in the area's broader history as well as the smaller tidbits that will bring your visit to life. And he managed to incorporate Jewish history into our day while allowing us to simply enjoy the city's enchantment. Whatever your touring preferences, we highly recommend Pedro!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Indeed, challenges sometimes occur. But Porto is also very beatifull with some fog. Gives the city some mystical atmosphere. It was a great day. Thank you for sharing so much information and wonderful stories with me ... and for the nice review.
Phyllis JacksonMontgomery, ALABAMA, United States
We really learned a lot about Porto in a very short time from Pedro. He was very knowledgeable and presented the tour in an order that made sense to us even though it was raining. We went outside of the city for a great lunch at a seafood restaurant. Pedro is a very professional guide who was very down to earth and was easy to talk to.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the nice review. It was really good exchanging experiences with you. And that amazing lunch ... .

We enjoyed our day with Pedro. He was extremely patient and accommodating to my family group. We explored at our own pace which was helped by Pedro's guidance. He made sure we saw the highlights of his wonderful city. I felt he by attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend Pedro for a wonderful experience in Porto .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review, and for the opportunity to meet your wonderful family.

Ethan ChamberlainUnited States
An outstanding day with an outstanding guide! We had a group of 6 and Pedro did a superior job of getting us around the city and adjusting things at the last minute. We particularly enjoyed the port wine cellar, lunch in the small grocery store and the river cruise (an add on not in the base itinerary). Several in our greoup commented that Porto was their favorite city on our 2 week Iberian cruise - in large part to with work Perdo did for us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Well, I cannot ask for a better review! Thank you very much. A special lunch for a special party visiting Porto!!
Leonidas DowlenUnited States
Pedro did a great job showing us all the key sights of Porto. He is very knowledgeable and the six of us really appreciated his expertise. We had a good time being with him and thoroughly enjoyed his choice of the unique restaurant inside an old city wall located by the river. Lon D. Coral Gables, Fl.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Lon. It was a pleasure meet you all and have such a nice time together.
Thomas GundersonBismarck, ND, United States
We would go with Pedro on any tour in the area. Very interested in his community and knowledgeable about the area. No trouble rating Pedro a 5 star!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was really wonderful to meet you. And it'll be a pleasure to take you on another adventure. ;-)
Diane MasentenUnited States
Pedro was an excellent guide! He provided us with a wonderful and interesting mix of places----some via car, some by foot. We went on a walking tour of downtown Porto including an outdoor market. He arranged a lovely outdoor lunch and ended with a visit to a Port wine cellar. He was very friendly and knowledgable. We heartily recommend Pedro!
Lawrence MasonUnited States
Pedro gave us a wonderful tour of the sites of Porto and showed much pride in the city. We saw the highlights including the beautiful cathedral, the bridges, a fantastic bookstore Lillo which was a treat. He had a very comfortable van with a driver, Roy whom we also enjoyed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We thank you for the opportunity to show you our hometown. We spent a really enjoyable day.
My clients raved about Pedro and his personalized attention and great personality!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this wonderful feedback. I'm glad that all the planning done to deliver this custom tour worked out.
Robert StovallUnited States
Pedro guided our "Top 10 Attractions in Porto" tour. He is knowledgeable & friendly & is clearly an advocate of his hometown! The highlight was the Real Vinicola winery tour (part of Real Companhia Velha). He turned us over to a petite brunette winery guide (Joanna?) who appears to be a 2nd generation employee & enthusiastic promoter of port. If you elect to use Pedro (& you should), see if he can arrange for her to be your guide through the winery. Pedro speaks fluent English & I highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Robert, thank you for your review and this important input to other travelers. To people that have a real interest discovering Port Wine, this is a very good experience. And I can get Joana to be the guide at the winery. I'm sure that drinking Port is now something completely different.
Keith B.Sandy, UTAH, United States
Pedro was very knowledgeable and made our time in Porto incredibly interesting, educational and fun. He is punctual and articulate in English. His attention to detail was critical for our planning since we were visiting during a major holiday. The boat cruise he organized so that we would have a great view of the fireworks was amazing.

Pedro did a superb job introducing us to Porto, which we found to be of greater interest than we expected! We recommend him without hesitation!
