Full description
Get to know Porto with a half-day walking tour. Visit the most emblematic places of the city center, as well as other lesser-known but authentic and defining sites. After meeting in Praça dos Leões, visit the Bank of Tiles. You'll also get to check out the nearby Carmelitas and Carmo churches. Continue toward Lello Bookshop, one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world, stopping at Clérigos Tower. Walk along Aliados Avenue, pausing on Santa Catarina Street for a visit to see where pastéis de nata (a Portuguese egg tart pastry) is made. Next is the S. Bento Railway Station, with its architectural richness and panel of tiles. See the Porto Sé Cathedral, then head down typical Porto streets toward the Ribeira of Porto. Along the way you will see the Rua de Baixo tower, a building that is possibly the oldest in the city. Walk through the daily Ribeira Market, before making your way to the Church of São Francisco, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Afterward, head into a typical restaurant to sample a traditional petisco (a snack from Porto).

The lady was about 20 minutes late.

The Impiss was not available and we had to wait another 20 minutes!

Everything great!!!

The private tour left nothing to be desired. A great guide who showed us the beautiful Porto on foot. We had enough time for photos and visits. The snack at the end was more of a flop, but you can handle that

Informative tour of the old town

We were guided wonderfully through the old town of Porto by our guide Ines, we learned a lot of interesting things and also very much enjoyed the tapas at the end.
