Our tour guide Julio was terrific, a Porto native, very knowledgeable of Porto’s history. Julio made our day super interesting since beginning to end, took us to different points of interest, arrange for lunch at a restaurant where locals eat, it was delicious!. He made all arrangements in advance, very organized and to add to his professionalism, he went the extra mile to help me picking up my iPhone I forgotten at the wine tasting place. Thank you Julio!

My wife and I spent a thoroughly joyful and informative day with Andre, our guide and teacher. We were fortunate to be the only people on the tour on an overcast Monday so Andre picked us up exactly 9 am in a Mercedes, introduced himself, gave us a quick overview of the day’s schedule and told us that we could spend more or less time at each destination based on our own interests.

I am not doing his ability as a guide or his warm and enthusiastic personality justice, when I say that it felt like we were spending the day with a friend who wanted to introduce us to his city.

As for the agenda, we were amazed by the beauty of the city, its history and culture and the grace of its people. Andre gave us a choice of lunch venues based on our food preferences. It was delicious. We enjoyed the river boat tour immensely. It gave a great overall sense of the city and context regarding the city’s surroundings. We stopped at several places that provided beautiful views of the city, and lastly visited the Churchill winery where we were given an extra tour and then had several pours of some very nice Port wines including two excellent vintage years. We were glad that it was the last visit of the day as we were well relaxed after the wine.

But, I should also mention that I had asked Andre to show us the train station on the side of the river where the winery was located since we train tickets to Lisbon three weeks later. He told me that we should be leaving from the train station much closer to where we were living. I told him that we had already purchased the tickets online. He took us to the main station, explained the situation to the ticket office worker who said, “no problem just board at the closer office 15 minutes earlier than the time on the ticket. This all took place after our nine hour tour. We highly enjoyed the tour and Andre as the guide.

We booked a small group full day tour. Our tour guide Fransisco arrived at our hotel for pick up exactly on time and informed us that we were his only guests for the day. We had his full attention and knowledge of the city all to ourselves. We settled in for an enjoyable day. There is not much Francisco does not know about the city and his enthusiasm was infectious. He spoke near perfect English and dazzled us with facts, figures and details endlessly, we visited many places, had a lovely local lunch with him and were able to ask as many questions as we wanted, or just sat back and let him speak.
I cant say what a small group would have been like but I suspect it would be of the same perfect quality. This was our first time in Portugal and will defiantly return. The Portuguese know how to make visitors welcome.
Thank you for a great day and well done Touch Tours, expectations exceeded.

This was an absolutely amazing experience. A complete tour of the city’s hotspots with a delicious lunch and wine tour. Julio was more than exceptional at giving us history, safe transport and a friendly companion to spend the day with. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to experience Porto authentically.

We only had a couple days in Porto and there’s so much to see so we booked the day tour. Andre was out guide and he has such a passion for the history of this amazing city that he made it come alive for us. The anecdotes and insights, the flow of the whole tour, great lunch with the ‘locals’ and amazing port cellar tour/tasting. It was just our family and he couldn’t do enough for us. You’d be hard pressed to pack so much in and with no stress or fuss. Top quality and value for money

It was just us as a couple on the trip and he went out of his way to ensure it was personalised as much as possible. He was great throughout the whole trip, he was super knowledgeable. Would recommend for those who are really into the history of Portugal including links to England, France and Spain! Cheers Julio!

We had a wonderful day with Andre, our guide extraordinaire! We asked for lots of history, and he really knows his stuff. He made our day so easy and enjoyable - always three steps ahead of us, planning, arranging and making everything go so smoothly. He gave us lots of information, history, interesting stories, and recommendations. You could tell he enjoys his job and excels at it. My favorite part of the tour was walking around Porto, visiting the sites, the churches, Lello bookstore and more, listening to Andre give us the history of what we were seeing. The wine cellar tour was also interesting and we enjoyed the river cruise as well. It was an exceptional day!

Our guide Andre toured us around all of Porto for a full day. We learned and saw so much and yet never felt rushed. It was like touring around the city with a good friend. I would highly recommend Andre to anyone wanting a great Porto experience. Andre even made dinner reservations for us at a fabulous restaurant (Mistu) and gave us excursion suggestions for our drive back to Lisbon. What a great day. Definitely a 5 star experience.

Julio! Julio! Julio! What a fantastic guide, I have done many tours around the world and he’s by far my favourite guide. He was accommodating with anything we wanted and therefore we had a great opportunity to eat some very local food called Francesinha and it was awesome! The tour itself was also very nice, but the highlight was the explanations, and just how nice Julio was. Thanks again for everything.
