We had Aurea as a guide, she told us about the history of Porto and the most important buildings. Porto pleasantly surprised us and Aurea showed us all nice places. The electric tuk-tuk was also a success. It was very nice not to have to hear or smell a roaring engine and we were an 'Eye-catcher'. We also had a nice chat and Aurea also told us where we could eat and drink in Porto and the surrounding area. Thank you Aurea! So worth repeating, when our daughter comes along next x!

We did not know you buy tickets, still wait in like to transfer your ticket from electronic to paper- that was not fun. And then the time we wanted was booked so we had to leave and come back. The tour itself is amazing. The palace is beautiful and well worth the visit. Just be prepared on the line situation as we were not!

Very good!!! I recommend to those interested to book the visit in the desired language at the beginning of the day, as they need available time, so you can better plan your day. The visit takes place with a large group, which I believe will harm the development of the tour. But the explanations are great!!! I recommend!!!

It gets a ticket however you will still need to go exchange it for an entrance ticket and sign up for a guided tour time-slot. Groups are separated by languages.

Our driver Karma was fantastic! Super helpful, got everyone involved and gave us a great tour. I would definitely recommend it.
