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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments, I enjoyed hosting you here! Obrigado!

Miguel was one of our favorite guides on our grand Iberian adventure! He is very articulate and has excellent command of the English language and a true passion for his country. We did the 4 hour walking tour with bridge view boat ride. Wish we had more time in the Oporto area and will definitely book with Miguel again when we come back to the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Obrigado for your kind comments and rating. It was excellent to host you here and show you the best of the region. I look forward to next time! Miguel

We enjoyed very much our Porto walking tour with Miguel. Porto is a beautiful city and I strongly recommend Miguel who is very knowledgeable over his city and also Portugal. Miguel's knowledge of history will give you a very good understanding of the different transition of Portugal over the centuries. Porto has so many things to offer that Miguel's city walking tour should be done early in your visit in order to let you come back to the several places visited.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muito obrigado for your kind comments and review! It was a pleasure to host your family here and I appreciate your interest and appreciation for my city. All the best, Miguel

Miguel is totally delightful,extraordinarily knowledgeable both in Portuguese history &culture as well as general world history& culture. Although he is a Porto native, he has lived in the US and understands Portugal's connections and contributions as a people and country. Miguel was willing to take the pulse of our four-person group and steer us toward sites and topics which were of particular interest, even when these were not part of the original plan. Our only regret was not scheduling more time.

My family and I recently toured with Miguel, we had a wonderful time. From the moment we sent the initial enquiry, Jennifer and Miguel have been professional & courteous. On the tour itself, Miguel was knowlegeable, funny, & above all very patient and welcoming. We requested a few last minute changes to the tour which Miguel accomodated without any issues. He also recommended many great restaurants for us to try, we would never have stumbled upon these without his local knowledge. Definitely recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a absolute privilege to host your amazing family. I could not stop telling Jennifer want a great family you are and how much I enjoyed our time! Thank you for the rating, kind comments but most of all the wonderful memories of our time together. You will not be forgotten. Keep in touch - Miguel & Jennifer

We wanted to let you know what a fabulous tour we had with Miguel in Porto. He met us at our hotel, with a smile on his face. There was six of us and we were over an hour delayed. He is very pleasant, so knowledgeable and a joy to travel with. We saw many things that we would have never seen without him. Our dinner was at a Neighborhood restaurant that the fish was cooked on a wood fire on the sidewalk. What an experience and so delicious. All six of us would recommend this tour to everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad that you got to experience my city and that you were so open to everything that I showed you. It is guests like yourselves that make this 'work' so great, thank you for choosing me and for such a wonderful day! All the best to you and your group. - Miguel

Miguel was very knowledgeable and accommodating. The tour couldn't have been more pleasant. There was an issue with his vehicle which he quickly resolved, hiring a taxi to continue our tour. He spent considerably longer than our allotted time, we never felt the slightest pressure to hurry. He helped us with arrangements for our remaining time in Porto which we would not have been able to do on our own. We highly recommend Miguel and I regret not having used his service before our last day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments and rating. I appreciate your flexibility with our tour. It was a pleasure to show you Porto and assist in making it such an enjoyable experience for you. I look forward to welcoming you here anytime. Take care!

Miguel was fantastic - excellent English, very knowledgable, interesting, and very helpful and willing to do whatever it takes to make the trip one that you will always remember. Oporto is a super place to visit - lots to see and visit and it was wonderful to end our tour with a visit to Taylor's Port for a tasting and good view over the river and city. We are returning in 3 months and intend to use Miguel again for a different tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Mills, I am thrilled that you enjoyed your time here in Porto, and that you are returning! I appreciate your comments and am happy that I could make your tour so memorable. I look forward to next time! All the best, Miguel
