Service Description

Located in coastal North Portugal, where the Douro River meets the Atlantic Ocean, Porto is the city that gave the country (and port wine) its name. It is a merchant city with an economy based on water-related activities. The old harbor, by Duoro’s riverfront, developed into the most picturesque neighborhood, Ribeira. Inside the old medieval wall, there is a labyrinth of narrow granite streets, tall houses covered in tiles of bright colors, clothes drying from balconies, and boats waiting for passengers. It is an underrated foodie city surrounded by vineyards and port cellars. Porto is Portugal’s second-largest metropolis, after Lisbon. It is a UNESCO World Heritage city and has been chosen Best European Destination. The people, history, legends, tradition, culture, scenic views, and world-famous Port wine, will inspire you to want to get to know what is still a fabulous “hidden gem”. This one-hour tour will begin in Main Square, in the heart of Porto. Then we will begin our stroll down the avenue of Allados. Along the way, we will pass City Hall and the amazing Beaux-Arts and Art Nouveau 1920’s buildings. All en route to an outstanding Train Station, which was once a monastery. When we get there, we will step inside where we will discover its true beauty. It is covered in 20,000 beautifully hand-painted blue and white “azulejos” (glazed tiles). Each tile is a piece of a depiction of famous episodes of Portuguese history. This tour is available during both daytime and evening time. $66 for each additional screen * This tour is not designed for our corporate customers.
