Rocha was our guide today and it was an excellent start. There were around 8 people and we walked almost all over Porto! The guide was engaging and kept our interest throughout. His interest in the topic was impressive and his energy infectious. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting Porto for the first time as you can get an idea of where things are located in the city. Do visit.

This was an excellent walking tour. Our guide (Mariana), a native Porto resident (Tripeiro), was extremely knowledgeable. She provided answers to all of our questions and was able to help customize the route to the groups interests. In 3 hours we covered a huge amount of the town center without doing too much hill climbing.

This tour serves as a great way to learn about the town and a good launching off point for future activities here.

I'd recommend wearing comfortable clothes and maybe bring water or snacks to maximize your enjoyment of the tour.

Lovely Mariana took our small group around the city, was very patient when we kept wandering off for photo opportunities, coffee, snacks etc. She is a wealth of knowledge, answering every question that came her way. Porto is just perfect, and this walking tour was one of the highlights of my whole vacation. Our group decided to pay the 5 Euros each to go into the Lello book shop (whereas usually it is just a stop to walk by on the tour), that was very interesting and made for some beautiful photo opportunities as well. Mariana will take pictures for you, and does everything she can to make sure your day is special.

We went on a private walking tour with Joao Rocha this morning and were so impressed with our experience! Joao is such a lovely, funny, informative tour guide and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to show us around Porto. He really goes above and beyond to make sure you have great recommendations and things to do while in Portugal. Overall so happy with our experience and would recommend him as a guide to anyone visiting Porto. Thank you Rocha!

We met Mariana by the fountain and, unsurprisingly we were the only two people on the 3 hour walking tour. Well, it was January and quite cold and windy. Mariana’s English was perfect, she asked us if we had any specific interests (alas not) so we trundled around chatting whilst she pointed out various places of interest and was very knowledgeable about the architecture, history and politics of each place we went. A very nice way to spend a morning.

Wonderful tour, with an exceptional guide (Nuno). Group of 12 was just the right size for good interaction and sharing. Nuno was very knowledgable, and shared many interesting details of Porto. Would highly suggest this tour to better understand Porto.

We did the Porto Walking Tour a few weeks ago. We were the only people booked to go. Our guide was a young chap and he was excellent! His English was very good and he had lots of information about everything we saw. It was the best way to see Porto and to learn about its history. Well worth the money.

I did the 3 hour walking tour of Porto with Steve, whose English is impeccable due to his Welsh roots. He showed me the small streets of the old town that are off the tourist itinerary as well the prominent points of interest. A really good way to get acquainted with the city .

We signed up for a group tour and ended up with a private tour! Leandro was knowledgeable, funny, and as he learned about our interests, tailored the information he shared. We felt like we really got to know Porto in those three hours!
