Overview
Caution! High risk… of falling in Love with Porto! You will be picked up at your accommodations and we’ll start to explore the city.  The rhythm is slow-paced with lots of conversation, historical facts, curiosities, stops for photos and to enjoy the views. We’ll see places like S.Bento station, Ribeira and the Miragaia, along the river Douro with his bridges and all the way to the beach to understand the connection of the city's history with the ocean. On our way back we’ll explore Cristal Palace, Clérigos, Vitória and learn all their history.  After, we´ll cross to Gaia, see the D.Luis bridge and the Port wine neighborhood.  (Only for All Day Tour) - We’ll have lunch at one of the fisherman's villages around Porto and after lunch, what better than a Port? We’ll explore Gaia, the natural reserve, and visit one of the oldest Cellars to learn their history and to taste their Ports.  We´ll finish back at your accommodations. We Offset the Carbon Emissions of Your Tour with us.
