We had a private tour with our guide Renate. It was really cool how much she knew about history and also about religion and culture. She made the tour very personal by giving the time at each place. We also briefly visited a museum. The pastry was very tasty that we received and Renate also gave a lot of tips for the area. I would definitely recommend this tour!

Diana was the perfect guide. So was so knowledgeable when it came to the history of Portugal, Porto and area. The walking tour was 3 hours in length and we saw the highlights of Porto. We love history and Diana was a wealth of knowledge. Also very conversant with what is happening today in Porto. She took us to some of the main sites and adjusted her pace to meet my husband’s requirement (sore knees). This was much appreciated. Diana made this personable and caring. She also shared some of het “go to” places in Porto which was much appreciated. She is continuing her studies (Masters) in tourism. Highly recommend

Delightful, knowledgeable, caring, thorough, expansive, and fantastic!

Our guide, Diana, was second to none! She kept excellent contact with us to ensure our meet up for the tour went smoothly and without incident. At the get go, Diana was a dynamo! Passionate about her city, she shared with us the most wonderful tour of what makes Porto so special! Diana was a dream of a guide...her command of English was amazing, her vocal delivery was clear, so easy, and fun to listen to. The tour was expansive and thorough without being overdone, she kept our interest throughout the 3 hours plus tour. She is THE gem of Porto!
