Our private tour with Ricardo was exactly what we wanted -- local flavor, culture and personality while we learned more about the history, architecture and even food of the city. Ricardo was delightful, very focused on customizing the experience for us and sharing plenty of personal anecdotes that help to bring a city and culture to life. Worth every dollar!!
Enthusiastic guide with knowledge of loads of interesting facts. A good insight for a first time visit.

We took a delightful walking tour with Ricardo today. he knows Porto inside and out and had some very good insights as to the people, the country and the ins and outs of Porto. We enjoyed our three hours with him as our guide.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Porto with Ricardo. He kept a good pace and we covered a great deal of the city. It was the perfect introduction to Porto. He was informative, very interesting and charming. We really liked hearing his perspective on the city and it's history. We would look forward to another of his tours.

Ricardo was lovely. Spent more than the allotted time with me, my husband, kids and in-laws. He was very knowledgable and was able to keep us and the kids (10 and 7) entertained. Also, as my in-laws live in Portugal and speak little English, he was kind enough to toggle back and forth between languages. He also scored us seats at one of the francesinha spots he likes - even though the line was tremendous.

Ricardo is an excellent guide who knows Porto in and out and helps visitors really get to know the city, the country and it's people. The route & pacing of this tour was also great for getting some exercise but in a highly engaging way. Ricardo does a great job of storytelling - both the history and the insights into daily life. We learned a lot and had fun doing it!

We arrived in Porto on Christmas Eve. Ricardo was generous with his time, since basically all of Porto. Closes down on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. He was early to our meeting in front of our hotel, and we casually strolled the streets of Porto, gaining information about the area during the late afternoon stroll. Thanks to Ricardo we know about Porto! we also enjoyed pasties de Nata (custard tarts) a stop along our walk. If you want a quick and easy way to learn about Porto ,this is the tour.

Ricardo was great! Our first time in Porto and only one full day to immerse ourselves in as much history and highlights as possible. Ricardo was on time, and very knowledgeable and friendly. Great communication before we arrived and careful consideration of what we wanted to see and what he thought we would enjoy and should not miss. I would recommend him and use him again! Thank you, Ricardo for a great tour and the restaurant recommendation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Linda for your kind words it was a pleasure to meet you two, in this case for me it was showing Porto to friends.

We couldn't have asked for a better, more knowledgable guide than Ricardo. It was like having an old friend (an old friend who knew Porto like the back of his hand) give us a customized tour through this lovely city. He was smart, funny and companionable. He made sure before we started the tour that he covered the things that we wanted to see. A first-rate experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. It feelt like I was indeed with two Friends.
