Our guide Susanna was amazing. She is very passionate and energetic and we saw a lot in the time we had. She also gave us loads of tips for things to do after the tour (and where to buy original or replicas of the porto tiles). We had a really fun time discovering Porto with her.

This was a terrific tour of hidden and known gems of Porto led by an intelligent, articulate and well-versed guide, Ciana. May you be so lucky as to draw her name as your guide. Great vistas, great historical overview, and a highlight of a visit to the Livraria Jello, a favorite haunt of JK Rowling’s when taught in Porto and you’ll see its influence on the Harry Potter story.

It was pouring with rain. Raphael our guide didn't let that deter us. so we set off and I thought that we would give up after the first half hour getting soaked. 3 hours later I'm so glad we stuck it out. Raphael was very knowledgeable and made it quite fun. The custard tarts (nata) we had were served warm. Raphael suggested we eat them as the locals do sprinkled with cinnamon - superb.
