Ricardo picked us up from the train station even when our train was delayed. We had a day and a half and Ricardo showed us around by foot and car. The first day he drove us around to see the parts on the outside then dropped us at our apartment. He made suggestions of what to do and where to eat. The next day we walked around for 6 hours and it was wonderful. We talked about history and buildings but more importantly we talked about Portuguese culture which was very interesting and enlightening.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Keller for your kind words. It was a pleasure doing the tour.

This was our first tour using Tours by Locals. It exceeded our expectations. Ricardo was an excellent guide, passionate about his native city, and everything we learned and saw made the following couple of days in Porto much more valuable. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words and when I have a great group like you guys and girl it's always a pleasure for me.
Spectacular tour. Ricardo provided us with insight into life in Porto, combined with historically significant spots and great suggestions for us to venture on our own. Great value and unforgettable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Wendy, it was a pleasure. A big hug.
Our family of five enjoyed our day with Ricardo in Porto. As the tour describes, we really discovered Porto through Ricardo's eyes. He is like a good friend showing you around his City! Ricardo was very sensitive to our needs and even took us to his old University Residence so that we could get a personal bird's eye view of the Air Race event that was on during our weekend stay in the City. If you are looking for a very casual view of Porto, we are pleased to recommend Ricardo to be your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeff for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you and your wonderful family.

We went on a walking tour on Friday July 14. Ricardo gets 5 out of 5. He met us at the scheduled time and made the tour interesting and personal. He loves Porto and that made us feel we can trust him to take us around to see the unique sights. In three hours we covered a lot of grounds and thanks to his easy going personality we had a relaxed but full tour. Nira and Shimon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words. It was a short time but a pleasure to have meet you NIra and Shimon. Ricardo

Margaret CollinsUnited States
Ricardo was a fabulous guide. He gave us a personalized tour of Porto and Matosinhos. He took us to many sights including markets. We had a delicious authentic grilled fish lunch and got a locals perspective on what to see and do. He exceeded our expectations and was a delight to spend time with. We highly recommend him as your tour guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words and for being such a wonderful group. It was a real pleasure to get to know each one and thank you once more for the time very well spend.
Lee StockwellUnited States
We were Ricardo's 2nd tour so it seems premature to rate him. However, his enthusiasm for the city, his willingness to go to out of the way "locals" places, and engaging manner more than made up for beginner shortcomings. He can only get better so don't hesitate to book him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the kind words and trust. Hope, if you two Lady's ever como to Porto in the future, to grab a coffee and say Hi.
