A walking tour to shoot the best photos, from the best spots in the city
Porto has a series of well placed viewpoints that offers you amazing sights over the city.
This tour will take you to all those eye-catching places (even the ones only known by the locals) and also to the most typical areas of the city for you to shoot Porto's real life (cloths hanging at the windows, the ladies at the market, Portuguese tiles on the facade of buildings, cod fish hanging from the old grocery stores ceiling, and a lot more).
Enjoy going to the old quarters, the old jailhouse, capture magic scenes in the 3rd most beautiful bookshop in the world, and climb to the top of the highest tower in Portugal.
At the same time, I'll tell you everything about this small, but interesting World Heritage city.
Shoot your best photos, ever! I'll help you with the subtitles!
*** Optional: add a professional photographer, to show you how to use your camera and to give you some tips to improve your travel photography ***
After picking you up at the "meet up location", we will take you to the neighbour city - Vila Nova de Gaia. That's right. From there you will be able to contemplate the beautiful city of Porto and the Douro river. Definitely the best way to start our photo tour.
Then, by crossing Eiffel's bridge we enter Porto, right in the historical center. A lot of other spots will be waiting for you.
Before lunch, you'll face the only challenge of this tour - climb the Clerigos Tower. The 220 steps to the top will be very well rewarded by the 360 degrees view of the city.
To regain your strenght, how about seating at a typical restaurant and taste different kinds of Portuguese food? At the end I can even arrange for you to take a photo with the staff.
In the afternoon we'll continue our journey, finishing in Porto's downtown, by the river, just relaxing and enjoying a glass of wine.

Pedro is a great guide. From the beginning of the day to the end, he was exceptionally accommodating, adjusting the schedule and route to meet our requests. Plus, he inserted "snacks," lunch and port tasting breaks well throughout the day. He clearly loves his city, and it shows. His professionalism and flexibility was remarkable. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Pedro and his enthusiastic guiding. I highly recommend him!
