History, churches, and port wine. A great day! Diogo’s knowledge of the city was amazing. A trip to the ocean was a great end to the day.

This was my favourite tour on a 40 day trip! Our guide was wonderful, booked us lunch at an amazing spot, showed us all there was to see. We had two tastings, both a bit different. Highly recommend

Booked this for a group of 3, and found it a great way to see the sights of Porto in a day, there was a fair amount of walking and this includes hills, Our tour guide was local and knowledgeable and as a small group we could stop and rest for a bit as it was a warm day. We particularly enjoyed the port wine tasting and drive to the coast.

We had a great tour with Ana. She was very knowledgeable and customized the tour for our interests. We saw all our bucket list items and really enjoyed her anecdotes. The transport was comfortable and the day was memorable. The local fish lunch was off the beaten path and absolutely delicious. Would do it all over again.

Very good overview of the city and a great port wine tasting experience we went to Churchill's but it sounded like that part could vary. One thing to be aware of is that even though parts of this tour are driven, there is a decent amount of walking up/down hills.
