This was an excellent tour. Andre is very knowledgable and passionate about Porto history and Medieval archeology. He showed us many winding narrow medieval streets, ancient houses, fragments of Medieval city walls and gates, ornate church facades and hidden clues in old stonework. And of course many wonderful viewpoints with amazing photo op views over the city and river. We would not have found these things exploring Porto on our own. Thank you Andre for a very interesting and worthwhile morning.

Andre provides the perfect orientation walking tour of Porto. His extensive historical knowledge of all the regions of Porto provided invaluable insight to weave the history and culture development for individual sites. This included pointing out what most certainly would have been missed important architectural and geographical features that helped us understand how Porto developed since Roman times and how to recognize the parts that still exist in modern Porto. Andre was the perfect pleasant tour guide

Just wonderful. Andre's historical knowledge of Porto is imparted in such a fashion as you walk around the city with him that as a visitor you too begin to feel the passion for the city that he so obviously does. The walk is cleverly crafted. If you have some time in Porto do the walking tour early on (not your first day if you have just done 30 hours of traveling). It is a great way to get your bearings.

Outstanding day in beautiful Porto even if a bit rainy but that did not dampen out spirits and Andre was able to show me all the key highlights of Porto. I only wish I had stayed a few more days. Excellent guide to a beautiful city.

Having arrived in Leixoes by cruise ship, we engaged ToursByLocals to find a suitable guide for a shore excursion around Porto. We were met punctually at the cruise terminal by Andre P who we then spent the next 6+ hours with as he guided us all around this city. Andre provided great background in good English during our day, including some areas off the usual large ship's tours, giving us an insight into the history with his knowledge of the region. All in all a great time spent in this city.

Andre by foot and car toured the four of us around the amazing medieval city of Porto- covering the historical highlights of both sides of the Douro River. He shared a broad knowledge of Porto's history and culture and its importance in Portugal's development as a country. As we toured his appreciation for the architecture and its importance in history made for a very meaningful day.

Good guide took us on an off the beaten tracks part of Porto Quite a lot of up and down steps but very good views and bucolic paths. Should have been 3 hours but easily was 4 hours , I think he would have gone on even longer except we stopped for lunch. Very generous of him.

We have been touring Portugal for almost a week and Andre gave us our best tour yet! He showed us many hidden gems of the city that had we been on our own would have never noticed. He is an avid photographer and historian so the two together made for an exceptional perspective of the gorgeous city of Porto. We highly recommend him!

Andre provides a fantastic, history-oriented tour, focusing on medieval Porto. He knows a ton about the neighborhoods, buildings and people of the city and explains it all in perfect English (and never in a pedantic way). He was flexible in tailoring the tour to fit my interests and get me to the specific places I wanted to see while still hitting many highlights I wouldn't have known about, which that other tours might overlook. Finally, Andre had no problem picking me up at my hotel well north of Porto

We really enjoyed our tour of Porto with Andre. He was really easy-going and as we walked around Porto he was quick to pick up on what we liked and adjusted the tour accordingly. For example, the kids really liked the Harry Potter references at the Train Station, so Andre changed things up a bit and took us to some of the other places made famous in Porto by the book series/movies. Andre is a photographer as well, so he knows where to get the best shots and he's a historian, so lots of fun facts!
