Interesting walking city tour
The walking tour was really nice and Teresa our guide has gone over and beyond in explaining the city centre with lots of interesting stories. I think a walking tour gives you better the inside of a city and with a local guide you are told lots of first hand stories you wouldn't know otherwise. I would definitely recommend

Rainy day brightened by Teresa
Nov 2021
A very wet Sunday afternoon in November was brightened up by Teresa's enthusiasm and obvious love of the city. This tour set us up for further exploration in later days in much better weather. Her restaurant recommendation proved a gem.

A great rainy morning walk
Great way to get acquainted with the city with a very knowledgeable guide. Very private ( only 2 persons) so lots of time for questions and good advice.

Perfect intro to Porto
Oct 2021
This tour of Porto was perfect. It captured all the highlights, and despite the hilly-ness of Porto, our guide chose the a route that was low impact, keeping up was no issue at all. Teresa our guide made this tour special, she was full of history and first hand accounts of her city. It was great way to pack it all in and also get a bit of local perspective. We will book with bluedragon when we return, Make sure to ask for Teresa !

Excellent walking tour!
Sep 2021 • Couples
We decided to take the tour the same day we arrived in Porto and were glad we did so. Overall this was a great tour and gave an overview of some of the main sites in Porto. We lucked out as there was a conflict with the bookings and ended up on a private tour. Valter was such a good tour guide and very personable. Would highly recommend this tour!

Great way to introduce Porto
This was a well-rounded interesting tour full of history as well as personal moments. A great way to introduce Porto to the newcomers. My favorite was the shopping street and the many tips of museums and restaurants to visit. I'm looking forward to continuing my trip and have a feeling to understand the local history and customs much better. Many thanks to Teresa.

Combination of history and personal stories
Sep 2021 • Couples
Teresa makes the perfect combination of the history of Porto and personal stories. In this way Porto comes alive! We had a great time during the walk for her positivity, suggestions and great English! Do hope we can come back sometime to hear more from her and experience Porto.

We had a wonderful time with Valter (Portuguese for Walter). He provided a nice mix of Portuguese/Porto history, culture and little
Porto secrets. So easy to speak with him - great English and a great personality. Highly recommend!
