A Recent Review of this tour

Miguel was a great tour guide! He was prompt and professional from the start. He gave us a great history of both Porto and Portugal, which was so helpful since it was our first day in country. He catered to our needs and wishes, but also was able to adlib as needed to create a great trip and experience. I would highly recommend hiring Miguel for any of your tour needs.
