Ricardo provided us a three hour tour of Porto including a review of Portuguese history from pre-Roman times up to the present day and of many of Porto’s most famous landmarks. As a professional history teacher he cares passionately about his subject and so we loved our time together. Strongly recommended.

We loved Ricardo and his passionate knowledge of the history and spots of Porto. We covered quite a lot of ground in 3 hours and it was never once dull or boring. We think this is the best way to see the city. We were a party of 3 and joined by only two others so it was such an intimate and manageable group. Ricardo also obliged us by taking a couple of group photos and remained cheerful throughout. Thank you Ricardo for our wonderful experience discovering your beautiful city!

It was so so lovely to meet our guide today and learn all about the amazing city of Porto! Despite the fact it was pouring with rain, it did not dampen our spirits or the spirits of our guide - who kept us smiling and super interested for the whole tour. He was so knowledgeable and incredibly hospitable, ensuring we had a great time. We loved the fact that the tour group was small and that we were able to see so many places but didn’t feel like we were rushed at all. Would highly recommend - thank you so much!
