What people are saying about Norte Region

Wonderful tour! Our guide Joao was phenomenal. We walked through the main attractions at Porto (note: you don’t go inside the sites since this is only a 3hr tour). The pace was really nice, and the storytelling of our guide was spot-on. We decided to end the tour with the picnic option and walked to the Jardim das Virtudes (highly recommend if it’s not raining). Plus, after the tour they give you an extensive list of sites, restaurants and foods to check out during your visit.

What an amazing experience!!! Flavio was the BEST tour guide we could ever imagine, patient, informative and entertaining. He provided great stories on every places we visited. We fell in love with the medieval Óbidos, the ocean views of Nazaré and the charming Porto. Definitely a must-do trip! Worth your time and money!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Coimbra and Aveiro. Our guide, Joao was very knowledgeable and helpful! He had a lot of great information to share! We took several tours during our visit to Portugal and this was by far the best! We highly recommend this activity! Joao was an outstanding guide!

Our tour guide, Melisa, made our visit very special and memorable. You'll never regret to have her or her colleague as your guide.

It was a phenomenal day! I recommend this experience as a day trip from Porto.
