    Excellent tour of Porto
    Guide was just great…great introduction to Porto…just 6 of us. We were in front of church pillars at 9:40 for 10 pm start. Didn’t find guide. Left. Guide called 10 minutes later and went back. 2 other couples found him. Not sure went wrong.

    Guided Walk Tour - Porto
    Our guide Mia was amazing and provided us with a wealth of information that really helped us to find our feet, and make the most of the short time we had in Porto - highly recommended!

    Very highly recommend this walk
    Mariana, the tour leader, was perfect. She is a local with an infectious love for Porto. She took us through lovely streets and to great places that we would have missed on our own. And gave us both an entertaining and a very informative tour. Her English is very good and she has a pleasant and clear voice making her easy to hear and understand. She had obviously planned routes involving less hilly routes than she could have. We came away from our three hr trip with a love of Porto and a desire to come back, and, based on Mariana, a love of the people of Portugal. Porto is hilly. I’m not an overfit 71 yr old, but I was able to keep up. Highly recommend.

    A very nice tour with a wonderful guide
    I found the tour to be very informative. Our guide, Anna, brought the history to life. She was a wealth of knowledge and was very personable. Because this was off-season we were the only people on the tour. We did a lot of walking and some details that you will not see or recognize on your own.

    Excellent tour. Very informative
    Anna was excellent and well versed in the history of Porto as well as the Jewish aspect. As a religious Jew I found the information relevant and well as wel presented. We really enjoyed the experience

    Perfect walking tour
    Pedro was excellent. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic, witty and fiercely proud of his city and Portugal. Having spent time in Porto we understand why.

    Nice way to explore Porto
    This walking tour is a very good way to know Porto. Our tour guide was very good and had great knowledge about the places we visited. She was very friendly and caring. There was a little misunderstanding in the beginning about the meeting point, but the tour organizer solved it perfectly.

    A truly informative tour
    This was not only a tour of locations where the Jewish community settled, but a thorough review of the history of Porto and the larger country as well. Ricardo was super knowledgeable, personable, and an all around great guide! Certainly one of the high points of our visit to Porto.

    Excellent tour.
    Tour Guide Mia was very friendly and very informative. She made sure every one in our group of 13 or so understood her narrative and seemed passionate about sharing her knowledge of her home city. The city is very noisy and busy but she was patient and guided us very well.

    Excellent on every level!
    Our guide was from Porto and his knowledge and passion for his city shone through. It was a nice small group of 6 so we could all hear and see everything being pointed out. We learned not just about Porto but also the history of Portugal, the food, music, and all sorts. Very unscripted and entertaining. We saw lots of other tours going on - big groups with ear pieces, groups on segways, in tuc tucs and we are in no doubt we made the right decision to go with our tour. We would thoroughly recommend it.

    Great tour
    We had such great time. The guide, Mariana was great, food was gorgeous and people in the restaurants were all so nice. Mariana knew about Porto so well and it was nice to be guided by someone really loves the town. We stopped at 3 restaurants and all the places provided beautiful Portuguese food with explanation which was interesting and yummy. We felt very welcomed by the restaurant staff. I am really glad I joint the tour.

    AWESOME TOUR
    Carlos is an amazing tour guide! He is very kind, professional and fun! My daughter and I did two days of trips with him on the Douro. Both included delicious lunches and time at swimming spots. Be aware the Douro is rocky so some wet shoes would be a good idea for when you go swimming! Beautiful cruising both days! One day we went to a farm and wine tasting. He will curate the tour as you like. Boat is very comfortable but note no shade so don’t forget sunscreen! Easy meet up at the marina. Don’t miss out Carlos is one of a kind!

    MUST DO, GREAT WAY TO START YOUR PORTO ADVENTURE, ESP IF SHORT-TERM.
    We just did the 3 hour walking tour of Porto with Ricardo earlier today and it was phenomenal, highly recommended and worth every penny. It was an excellent way to start the day (we did the 10am tour) before the crowds get too heavy, the weather is cool and Ricardo gives you a beautiful lay of the land from a very keen and well-educated yet personal and heartfelt perspective. From there you can choose which of the key destinations you want to pursue yourself - he gives you practical tips from hip bars and restaurants to fado shows to panoramic viewpoints. His impassioned delivery of legendary stories and historical averview gives you a sense of the soul and character of Porto as well as his pride for his home. Around every corner, along every cobblestone street, every religious and political monument, there is as story, a struggle and a triumph to be discovered and told. Thank you, Ricardo.

    Nice afternoon tour
    We had a great time on this tour, learning more history about the city as well as eating some delicious food and wine (3stops!). Rosa our tour guide was sweet and knowledgeable. We lucked out and it was only the two of us with the guide and we felt like we had a private tour of the city. Thank you!

Here's a rewritten version of your review:

"I had a disappointing experience with Porto Xperience. Despite paying €120 for a 3-hour tour for two people, the service fell short in several areas. Firstly, the guide arrived late, and we had to call her to confirm her arrival, despite being instructed to arrive 10 minutes early. Secondly, the guide was not a local, having only lived in Portugal for two years, which limited her knowledge and insight. Lastly, the voucher for the Lello Bookstore was misleading, stating that we could purchase any book and pay the difference if it exceeded €15. In reality, we were restricted to selected books only. Overall, the tour did not meet my expectations, and I would not recommend Porto Xperience to others."

Hello Norbert, we are sorry that your activity didn't occur as planned, however, and has we already explained in the several emails we exchanged what happened with the voucher it's not our fault since we only provide the service of the tickets. As you know the other customers that were doing the tour were able to exchange, so again we think there was some misunderstanding. Our guide didn't arrive that late since I have a text message at 10am with the customers information for the tour. Regarding her knowledge I can tell you that she knows more portuguese and porto history than some locals. She studied for the work she's doing and no one ever wrote anything regarding " her limited knowledge and insight". It's unfortunate that you and wife weren't able to experience our tour however hope you enjoyed our lovely city! All the best.

We did the Private Walking Tour with the Livraria Lello this morning. My wife and daughter enjoyed this tour and our guide was amazing. However I did not enjoy this tour at all. It simply did not interest me and seemed to me to be an expensive waste of three hours.

Hello Gary, we are sorry to hear that you found the walking tour you made in Porto boring but really happy that your wife and daughter liked the tour. Has you might understand when visiting an european city what you have the most is history and culture and sometimes 3hours it's not enough. All the best.
