Picked up from our hotel, on time, by our lovely guide Isa. For the next 8 hours we were treated like family and were shown the attractions of Porto of which there are many. Throughout the afternoon Isa gave us the historical information on all the sites we visited with plenty of opportunities for photographs. In the evening we were treated to a Dinner & Fado show. Food excellent and the staff went out of there way to provide a delicious meal. staff very friendly and efficient. Fado brilliant! Isa then dropped us off at our hotel after a good day. two happy customers

Picked up from our hotel by Luiz who was a great guide we went through Porto where he pointed out various sights. We went to the market by the harbour and viewed the local fish and produce market, something I love. We then travelled back into the city saw other points of interest. Then off on a river cruise followed lunch in a lovely riverside restaurant, we then visited a wine cellar and had a tour and tasting, which was great. We finished with the station and the cathedral. A very good tour with a great guide.

Pedro, our guide was very knowledgeable, entertaining and attentive. Good sense of humour and personable. Would recommend him for this tour. The tour gave us a good over view of the city, we enjoyed the port wine tasting and the river tour was a pleasant addition to the day.

Hugo, our tour guide, was so great! He was very knowledgeable, super friendly and just made the tour that much better. I also love the fact that all of the tours we went on, including this one, were small and intimate (8-9 people in total). You got to know everyone & it made seeing the city more enjoyable. Speaking of which, Hugo made sure to take us to all of the top spots and explain the history of everything, not to mention give us some tips for when we went out on our own. So helpful! He never rushed us but yet made sure to keep us on time for all of the places we were to visit. Lunch as so good as well, which was included in the overall price. The only thing that wasn't included in the price was the visit to the book store. However, we did get to surpass the long line up to get in, which is always great, and you got your 5 euro back if you purchased a book. Oh & you had to pay extra for the boat cruise but it was worth it in my mind because you got to see a different perspective of Porto/Gaia that you wouldn't have seen solely from land. Definitely, recommend taking this tour. It involves a lot of walking so be mindful of that when you book just in case that was not something you were looking to do. Thanks again, Hugo! You were awesome :-)

This was my favorite tour of 3 tours we took in Portugal. Our guide, Hugo, took everything at a very relaxed pace and was excellent at timing things and thinking ahead about the order in which we did things so that we could see as much as possible, and also so we could accommodate the Spanish-speaking client who had already taken a boat tour the day prior. Hugo also gave us recommendations for things we could do that we didn't get to do on the tour, and rather than dropping us at the hotel dropped us off near the Ponte Louis I. On his recommendation we walked across and ate at a much less busy restaurant in Gaia than the circus that was going on (mid-August) on the waterfront on the Porto side. The next day there were only a few things we did that weren't on the tour, and we both agreed we had seen enough of Porto on the tour that our time would have been better spent taking a Duoro tour. I highly recommend this tour.

Overall fine. Ize, our guide, was personable. She was more between a tour guide and driver, as she was not as knowledgeable as a tour guide. The day prior she changed pick up from 9:00 to 9:20 and still showed up at 9:35 (due to first passengers she picked up). She was flexible to our requests during the tour. She managed our time needs.

Our guide, Ricardo, was amazing. He knew so much about the history, food, and Port wine. The tour is an excellent intro into Porto. My advice is to do this tour and take notes on places you might want to spend some extra time the following day. On a personal level, what I really appreciated was when I asked Ricardo some tough questions regarding Portuguese influence regarding colonization; he was honest, open, and didn't shy away from the question. That to me showed a lot of class. Do this tour, you won't regret it!!

Could not have been more pleased with this tour. Maria was an outstanding tour guide. She was a joy to be around for the day. Also picked out a great local restaurant for lunch that was included. We were picked up at our hotel and dropped off at the end of the day. I would highly recommend this company and do not hesitate to ask for Maria if available. All of the highlights of the city are included. They no longer visit the famous book store due to incredible demand to visit it. Can you imagine having to buy a ticket just to enter a book store and then stand in line?

We were lucky and our tour turned out to be a private tour that day, probably due to the rainy weather. Violet , our guide was funny and engaging, and we enjoyed being with her and learning about Porto. She drove us along the coast and explained the city layout, We visited several beautiful cathedrals and enjoyed seeing the “Harry Potter Bookstore” . We then boarded one of the old wooden boats on the river and toured the bridges, which was followed by a typical Portuguese lunch which was excellent. In the afternoon we enjoyed a port wine tasing at Croft Even though my husband has enjoyed port, we learned much more about it and which types we liked. Violet dropped us back at our hotel about 5 pm and we thoroughly enjoyed our day.

Paula, my guide, was and is knowledgeable about Porto, Port Wine, Gaia, the Douro Valley and all things Portuguese. She and the owner, Barbara, we so gracious in helping me arrange the tour to include the cruise, which is a 50 minute boat ride on the Douro River that takes you under the six bridges that span Porto to Gaia. The tour is a wonderful day -- seeing the beach (only 10km from Porto), several churches, the main train station which contains 20,000 tiles hand painted by one man, a library that inspired JK Rowling for part of her Harry Potter series, port tastings, the boat cruise, and a delicious authentic Portuguese lunch. I highly recommend CoolTours and plan to take their tour of the Douro Valley the next time I am in Porto!
