This half-day walking private tour will lead you through the most important sites of Porto, the second largest city in Portugal and the considered emerging European destination. You will meet our enthusiastic private guide in the city center and you will walk through the downtown area that breathes History, Culture and Art.
This Historic Center was classified as Cultural Heritage by UNESCO, in 1996. It will be a pleasure to walk through its typical alleys and admire Baroque churches and monuments with Romanesque, Gothic and Neo-Classical architecture. Learn more about Moorish invasions and other stories that named Porto as the “Invicta” city (the “Undefeated City”). The famous Cathedral in all its Romanesque glory is a must-see, as well as the Aliados Avenue with its gorgeous monument to the King Peter IV, an emblematic monarch that touched the heart of these people. You will also visit unique places like the Clerigos Tower, Lello Bookshop, São Bento Railway Station, Sta. Catarina Street and much more.
And along Porto’s historic sites, admire some more modern highlights like the D. Luís I Bridge, a double-decker iron bridge that was engineered by a partner of Gustave Eiffel. Here, near the world famed Douro River, you will enjoy the area of Ribeira, the Port Wine Cellars and the classic Rabelo Boats (a typical boat that crossed this river decades ago), lined up along the quay. And after a great and memorable Walking Tour through the secrets of Porto, we suggest you a perfect end: a sweet Port Wine tasting in a famous Port Wine Cellar (not included). End of our services.
