We've taken dozens of TbyL tours and every time we've had best guide and I think it just can't get any better, along comes a guide like Pedro who sets a new high water mark for knowledge, professionalism, courtesy and friendliness. His 3-hour walking tour was the PERFECT INTRODUCTION to the fascinating city of Porto. We learned so much and got such a great introduction we can't wait to head back tomorrow to do more exploring. He's one of the best and you'd be silly not to book with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review and your feedback. It's really importante to me. And I know you'll a wonderful time exploring Porto on your own. See you … (or we might just meet again).

We have used ToursByLocals guides on previous trips and most recently on our entire trip through Portugal. Pedro was the best guide that we have had ever. He was very knowledgeable, polite, fun and full of surprises for our 9 & 11 year old. He was not rigid and was happy to change our itinerary at our request. I recommend him for any trip in Porto.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I cannot thank you enough for this review. I have to admit that I was a little bit worried at first. But then, your children engaged quite well in our small adventure and we all had lots of fun.

We had an amazing day with Pedro. He is extremely knowledgeable about Porto and we learned so much about the Jewish history in this city. He has a very warm and witty personality and he made the day most enjoyable and comfortable for us. When the hills became too much for us to climb, he made sure that he drove us up the hills. We even got a beautiful parting gift from Pedro. All in all it was a wonderful day. Thanks Pedro
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the opportunity to know you, even for just a few hours. I think you open some kind of Pandora box by mentioning the gift. I hope no one reads that. Eheheh!

Pedro was wonderful! He was professional and knowledgeable, yet warm and personable. He helped us solve some issues we had and gave us great advice for dining and train travel. Pedro made sure we saw a variety of sights in Porto, and adapted nicely to our teenage grandchildren. His presentation of Porto's history provided a good context for our tour and was lovely and engaging. He is a terrific guide and I would strongly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the "terrific"! It was a pleasure to have met you.

The tour informative and a relaxing way to see Porto. Pedro was friendly and welcomed our questions. It was the perfect start for our visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review. It was my great pleasure to introduce Porto to you.
My husband and I had a well spent morning with Pedro wandering around this lovely city. He was open to our preferences and adapted the itinerary to suit, and gave us just enough information for the morning to be fun and interesting without being full of too many bland facts. Pedro went out of his way to make this morning walk enjoyable and we thought it more than worthwhile.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the feedback about our nice walk around Porto.
John BellUnited Kingdom
This is the second time we've had Pedro guide us. The first was a car tour of Porto and this time we had a walking tour with our adult children. Pedro was again excellent. His knowledge of the city and Portuguese history is great but what sets him apart are his stories many of which he delivers with wonderful humour. I'm sure we'll be visiting Porto again in the future with friends or family and we'll definitely be looking to book Pedro again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was reading your review and thinking ... I wonder who's this guy! Wait ... it's me!! Eheheh! Thank you! By now you already know as much as I do about Porto. But, it'll be a huge pleasure to be your tour guide again. See you ...
Philip RotnerUnited States
Pedro was the perfect guide. Smart, knowledgeable, friendly, flexible and extremely willing to accommodate his clients. He steered us to not only the key sights and areas, but also to personal favorite places. We have had a large number of good guides over many years of travel, and we would rank Pedro in the highest category. Unqualified recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm very happy that I was able to make your short stay in Porto into something special. Thank you for the amazing review.
Pedro was a wonderful tour guide! He was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. He took into account that we were traveling with 5 teenagers and keep them involved for much of the time. He taught us so many interesting facts about Porto and even gave us recommendations for where to eat. I highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the amazing review. I sincerely hope we can meet again and exchange further stories.

David BrotmanScottsdale, ARIZONA, United States
What a fantastic two-day tour. Pedro was one of the top guides we have ever had. We got to see everything we wanted in Porto and its surroundings. Pedro is so knowledgable about so many things. We feel have a great understanding of the area and how it got the way it is. Five stars are not enough for him. We recommend him very highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. Already asked the support team to add one extra star ... :-) It was really a very nice time spent together. And I also had the opportunity to learn a lot. This is how we built memories that will last forever. All the best.
Alex NovielliUnited States
Pedro was a fantastic guide for our Private Walking Tour in Porto. His knowledge of the significant sites was very in depth and he was able to keep up completely absorbed with the information he had to share. His tour included anecdotal stories and interesting tales of Porto's bygone days. We would recommend using Pedro without reservation - you won't be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! We were just having fun ... Hope to see you again in Porto, and invite you all for a drink.
Rudy ValenciaLayton, UTAH, United States
Pedro made my first experience of Port a very fun and positive experience. He is very proud of his city. He was very patient in answering all of my questions. The chocolates and introduction to Port Wine was special surprise. He also provided excellent recommendations for dinner. We tried 3 of the 4 resaurants that he recommended and all were well worth a visit. We especially enjoyed Brasao Cervejaria Coliseu went there twice, had to go back for the IPA. Thanks Pedro
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So, I guess I made you an expert on Porto already!! I'm very happy that you and your friends add so much fun. Until next time ... Thank you.

This was an excellent way to spend our 2nd day in Porto. We did the 10 Top Attractions in Porto with Pedro the previous day. Once again he was amazing, our wine tours were in smaller less commercialized wineries and his selection of restaurant for our midday meal was superb. All along the way he would point out interesting facts and places that showed how in-depth was his knowledge of the area. Pedro was amazing, no hesitations in highly recommending him.
Pedro VillaUnited States
Pedro was amazing, along with this tour we also did the River Duero Wine tour with him. He was pleasant, insightful, courteous and professional. The Top Ten Attractions in Porto is a must for anyone with limited time in Porto, and Pedro is the perfect guide. Not enough words to express our gratitude for showing us his Porto.
Margaret TelferUnited States
Pedro was prompt knowledgeable and flexible. He gave us a thorough introduction to Porto and all its charms. He told us what to go back to for further exploration which we appreciated.
Bud H.United States
Pedro was excellent. He designed a custom tour for us that we never could have accomplished without his help, including several sites that were off the beaten path. He is very personable, timely, and extremely knowledgeable. He was also very helpful in suggesting a number of restaurants that were excellent and close to our hotel. We would highly recommend Pedro if you are looking for a guide in the Porto/Duoro Valley area.
Susan H.United States
Pedro is a Porto native...a true local. He feels that you are a guest and he is working. Your tour will have plenty of options. It is possible to get an overview and then explore in depth on your own, spend time at a place that interests you, or a combination of both styles. He is open to discussing Portuguese culture, politics, education, and knowledgeable about history. Included are special surprises and treats!
Michael MoodyUnited States
Pedro offered incredible insight and commentary on the history of Porto. He intelligently answered millions of my questions and was extremely patient and helpful with our 11-month-old during the walk. We recommend that EVERYONE signs up for this proper introduction to Portugal's northern city!
