The tour guide was the best part. He is knowledgeable about the city, and I delight to spend time with. He engaged everyone in the tour, and everyone felt comfortable. Book this tour now, or you will regret it. My family and I took this tour, including my kids (age 5&7). They were engaged the entire time, which really is a gift for a 2 1/2 walking tour. The theme of the tour is about Harry Potter, but Vinny also talks about the history or the city, shows us the beauty, and shares recommendations. He is an amazing person, sharing his love of Porto with one group at a time. He has put a lot of thought and energy into his tour. I truly think he’s the best in all of Porto.

Maria was really very kind, she is a good guide that help us to introduce at the city. Smiling and kindly, a very good guide. Thank you
