History, churches, and port wine. A great day! Diogo’s knowledge of the city was amazing. A trip to the ocean was a great end to the day.

This was my favourite tour on a 40 day trip! Our guide was wonderful, booked us lunch at an amazing spot, showed us all there was to see. We had two tastings, both a bit different. Highly recommend

Booked this for a group of 3, and found it a great way to see the sights of Porto in a day, there was a fair amount of walking and this includes hills, Our tour guide was local and knowledgeable and as a small group we could stop and rest for a bit as it was a warm day. We particularly enjoyed the port wine tasting and drive to the coast.
