Experience the highlights of Porto on foot and water, with a sip of port wine!


Come and discover this hidden gem of a city - European Best Destination 2017! Designed for those with limited time or who just want an intro to the city, this tour allows you to experience the best of Porto, leaving you wanting to come back for more!

Exploring on foot, you will visit the UNESCO Historic Centre, Aliados Avenue (main square and City Hall), Clérigos Church & Tower, Lello Bookshop, São Bento Train Station, Sé Cathedral, the Stock Exchange Palace & Ribeira Square (beautiful esplandade on the river).

Relax a little now as you embark on a traditional rabelo boat, one that used to carry port wine from the Douro Valley to Porto, for a one hour river cruise, passing all six bridges in Porto and witnessing the Eiffel inspired Dom Luis bridge.

The last stop will be at a port wine bar where you will sample the city's signature drink in a very cool environment. A truly unique experience!

I can create a customized tour for you should you have any special requests or if you are more than 8 guests.

A Recent Review of this tour

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.
