Thought for those who want to discover the secrets of Porto in a luxurious experience, this full-day tour will lead you through the most important landmarks of the Portugal’s second most populous city, on a comfortable and exclusive vehicle. Settled by Romans, this is an emblematic city known for its delicious Port Wine, medieval townhouses stack up beside the beautiful Douro River and churches wearing their blue-and-white “azulejo” tiles.
Our private driver/guide will explain you the rich History of this city, also called “Invicta” (the Unbeaten City), its heroes and battles and will guide you towards the trendiest and most cultural area of the city. Boavista Avenue, one of the most important streets, and Foz, the place where the river meets the sea, have some of the most important museums and modern local treasures. Then, the city center invites a long visit.

Catarina Street, Majestic Café, Bolhão Market, and much more.
And after a visit to the imposing Cathedral with its superb silver altarpiece, we will be able to enjoy the riverbanks of the immense Douro River, its Ribeira plaza and the D. Luís Bridge. And we will end this private tour in one of the most famous Port Wine Cellars, where the wine is blended and aged, placed in Vila Nova de Gaia (in the opposite riverbank).
