Beautiful experience

Beautiful ride in the romantic Port of the narrow streets, the medieval walls of the city and the ancient gardens. Evocative glimpses of an enchanting landscape from the viewpoints of the private gardens outside the normal tourist routes, up to the parks of the center passing by the Crystal Palace. Excellent explanation by Agnese, a young Italian student in Porto. Highly recommended

We really enjoyed the Tour.

The tour with Manuel was really good. He could tell a lot about Porto, his story and, above all, his tragic stories. We left the tourist paths and took streets we would not have found otherwise. Time passed by quickly and it was not boring. We found it very interesting and say again "Thank you" for the really nice romantic tour through Porto!
