Overview
More
TASTE, HEAR AND FEEL THE SOUL OF PORTO! Definitely... NOT a normal FREE WALKING TOUR! Why? Because for three hours we wander around Porto in a small group (no more than 8-10 ppl), telling you all about the locals way of life, their ancient customs and funny stories, discovering with you the most emblematic places of the city. Keeping the presentation very simple, we avoid the endless historical or architectural details that characterize most of the tours and basically present you the city as if you were our friend! In our tours you are FREE to decide how long it will take, FREE to chose the path along the way and finally, FREE to decide the tip you wish to give the guide in the end. OTHER INFORMATIONS: From 01/05 to 31/10 you just need to show up 5m before the start. Admittance will be according to reservations and/or arrival time. From 01/11 to 30/04, previous reservations (e-mail or phone) are needed. +6 group and Portuguese, Spanish or French spoken tours accepted only by previous reservation.
