Miguel was extremely knowledgable about Porto and specifically the history and significance of the past as it relates to the present. He was considerate of pacing and time and flexible with our needs (we were fortunate to have him dedicated to the two of us). His communication was excellent and we packed a lot in in 3 hours.
