Everything about this experience was perfect! Our guide was so sweet and thoughtful and the car he picked us up in was lovely. We enjoyed our sparkling wine as he gave us a spectacular sunset tour of the city which ended at the monastery with a panoramic view of the bay and city below. Once at the restaurant the staff was wonderful, attentive, and welcoming. We had never seen a Fado show before but this performance has made us fans of the style even though we don’t speak Portuguese! To top off a perfect evening the driver found out it was my birthday and let the restaurant know discretely so at the end of the evening the musicians and staff all surprised me by singing happy birthday and dedicating one Fado song to me as a present. I really cannot say enough good things about this activity and I highly recommend it.
Arriving in Porto earlier in the afternoon, we thought that the tour would be a good way to explore some of the city as well as to sample the local food and drink. We were not disappointed. Our guide, Thiago, was charming and with only my partner and me in the 'group', we were able to ask him lots of questions covering a variety of topics (from the history of the city to the politics in Brazil, and of, course the best beer, wine and port to sample), all of which were answered informatively and with humour. By the time the tour had finished, we were both full up with some tasty food and drink so it was good to be able to walk it all off on our way back to our hotel. My main recommendation would be...don't eat anything beforehand so that you have room to enjoy the fabulous petiscos and the local bebidas!
Our family of 5 enjoyed every minute. My kids Ages 4,6,9 loved the little cars And the open air and the fast paced. We saw many more sights than what we would have seen on our own. Our kids would have been too hot, tired, and hungry for us to try to navigate and park and walk to all the locations. We also got to venture off the beaten path to some great photo spots that were not packed with tourist.
The evening tour through the city was rather short but the the fado place including the atmosphere, show and dinner are highly recommended. The location is excellent: just imagine a kind of medieval environment located in front of the Porto cathedral with deemed lights and a good fado performance. An enjoyable experience. Additionally, they pick you up at your hotel!
What a wonderful experience! The company excelled in looking after us. Travel to venue, explanation of the city by night. Fado experience, music, food and people. We loved every minute and we hope to be back again. We had no worries whatsoever and Diane was a wonderful guide. We wish you all the best.
