What people are saying about Porto

We were a family of 5 and were therefore divided into 2 tuk tuks which made the journey together, sharing the stops and explanations during these stops. Comments in English because no French speaking. But well structured tour and friendly guides. To do at the beginning of your stay to fully understand the geography of the city. We can only regret that these tuk tuks are in traditional heat engine. There are others in an electric version which, in addition to being silent, somewhat preserve the environment of the old centre.

We had Aurea as a guide, she told us about the history of Porto and the most important buildings. Porto pleasantly surprised us and Aurea showed us all nice places. The electric tuk-tuk was also a success. It was very nice not to have to hear or smell a roaring engine and we were an 'Eye-catcher'. We also had a nice chat and Aurea also told us where we could eat and drink in Porto and the surrounding area. Thank you Aurea! So worth repeating, when our daughter comes along next x!

Great from start to finish, only problem the guides speak very little French from what I saw

Extremely fun and exhilarating! Guide was amazing and enthusiastic.

A moment of pure pleasure, no words to describe this experience.
