The tuk tuk tour with our guide Helena was brilliant. Helena made sure to show us and tell us about so many interesting and historical places, plus negotiated some really steep roads that on foot, would have been tricky. I definitely recommend the tuk tuk city tour... well worth it.

we had a great guide - Ines! Friendly, informative and she took time to stop and share stories with us. brought us to a quiet but strategic site to catch sunset. that was a great surprise for us! Thank you for making our one day in Porto memorable & enjoyable.

Although a short excursion, it was lovely to have the boat to ourselves. Amazing views along the river with your choice of seats. The captain was knowledgable and friendly. Highly recommend.
