Porto: Authentic Fado Music By the River

Porto: Authentic Fado Music By the River

Nothing beats the magic of being surrounded by your closest friends as you delve into the depths of Portuguese tradition. Immerse yourself in the welcoming atmosphere and authenticity of this unique musical expression as we enjoy moments of pure emotion and connection together. Every concert a beautiful Fado singer presents the most emblematic songs of Fado. On stage, she is more than a simple interpreter of songs, she is a storyteller, a guardian of tradition and an ambassador of nostalgia. The fado singer, with her voice full of emotion and her magnetic presence, transcends time and space, transporting us to a world where melancholy is beautiful and nostalgia is palpable. This is Fado, one of the most authentic expressions of Portuguese culture, known and recognized internationally as Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Discover Fado in its truest form at the Cais de Fado. An intimate concert harmonised with a glass of Port wine, held on the beautiful waterfront of Cais de Gaia, in the hall of the emblematic Clube Fluvial Portuense de Remo, with privileged views of the Douro River and the city of Porto. A space where everyone is welcome to meet and be moved by the Portuguese and its musicians. Cais do is a project created by two professional Fado musicians, Marco Quaresma (Portuguese guitar) and Luís Lumini (Viola and Bass). It aims to provide an artistic space to pay homage to traditional Portuguese Fado and share this centuries-old tradition, a Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

We gave a friend a birthday surprise! And not only was she moved, but we, who already knew, were amazed and moved by the experience! We were super calm, rocked by the waves! The boat just for us and the incredible hospitality of the pilot and sailor on board ☺️ made us feel at ease in everything! And in the end we were rejuvenated by the sunset that seemed misty but at the last moment turned out to be extraordinary! We highly recommend it to tourists and especially locals 😍

We had such a lovely experience with Miguel and Guillermo. Miguel was very knowledgeable and allowed us to experience the river at our own pace. Very relaxing and if we were staying in Porto longer, we would absolutely book again. We are so glad that we booked a more private experience rather than a larger boat crowded with people.

It really was a great tour. Lola was a very enthousiastic and knowledgable guide who knew the best routes and spots on Porto The bicycles were of the best quality

Best bikes we have ever ridden! The hills were no problem Great tour and guide. So much Fun!

Amazing, the most exiting tour we ever booked, a must in Porto
