We had an excellent tour with Tania. From the moment she picked us up at our apartment we knew we were in safe hands. Aveiro was beautiful as was Costa Nova and we really enjoyed the river cruise. Tânia was very knowledgeable about both places and we felt we got a true sense of Portuguese life and history. Tânia answered our questions and gave a lot of information about the places, history and local life, we sampled local food and pastries-we wish we had met Tânia earlier in our trip so we could have done more tours. We will definitely return and book with Meridian4People and highly recommend. Book you won’t be disappointed.

We booked the tour through Viator but it was conducted through a local company Meridan 4 People. My wife and I were visiting Porto but staying on the other side of the river in Gaia. Our tour guide Milena and her driver Diana picked us up at our hotel promptly at 9:00. The tour vehicle was a nice Mercedes Benz van loaded with complimentary bottled water so that was an added bonus to travel in style and comfort. Milena was very insightful while showing us the attractions in Costa Nova and Aveiro. We did a boat ride tour of the canals in charming Aveiro after visiting some of the local churches, bakery and markets. In Costa Nova we got to admire some of the unique beachfront properties with the wild paint schemes on each home. After our tour was over, we told Milena that we wanted to try the famous Porto sandwich known as Francessinha. Milena told us about Braso Cervejaria Coliseu which has the best Francessinha sandwich in Porto and Diana was kind enough to drive us there as opposed to dropping us off back at our hotel in Gaia. The tour and the sandwich were both magnificent so 5 stars to Milena and Diana for providing such a wonderful day.
