  1. Port wine tasting at Croft, , river cruise and “HarryPotter Bookstore”

    We were lucky and our tour turned out to be a private tour that day, probably due to the rainy weather. Violet , our guide was funny and engaging, and we enjoyed being with her and learning about Porto. She drove us along the coast and explained the city layout, We visited several beautiful cathedrals and enjoyed seeing the “Harry Potter Bookstore” . We then boarded one of the old wooden boats on the river and toured the bridges, which was followed by a typical Portuguese lunch which was excellent. In the afternoon we enjoyed a port wine tasing at Croft Even though my husband has enjoyed port, we learned much more about it and which types we liked. Violet dropped us back at our hotel about 5 pm and we thoroughly enjoyed our day.

  2. Maria was a fabulous tour guide and knows her city.

    Could not have been more pleased with this tour. Maria was an outstanding tour guide. She was a joy to be around for the day. Also picked out a great local restaurant for lunch that was included. We were picked up at our hotel and dropped off at the end of the day. I would highly recommend this company and do not hesitate to ask for Maria if available. All of the highlights of the city are included. They no longer visit the famous book store due to incredible demand to visit it. Can you imagine having to buy a ticket just to enter a book store and then stand in line?

  3. Great Day in Porto

    Our guide, Ricardo, was amazing. He knew so much about the history, food, and Port wine. The tour is an excellent intro into Porto. My advice is to do this tour and take notes on places you might want to spend some extra time the following day. On a personal level, what I really appreciated was when I asked Ricardo some tough questions regarding Portuguese influence regarding colonization; he was honest, open, and didn’t shy away from the question. That to me showed a lot of class. Do this tour, you won’t regret it!!
