      Enhance your Experience in Porto!
      This review is long over due and I apologize to Porto Locals for the delay in writing a review. I have not forgotten you! I created and led 2 back to back yoga retreats in September, 2023 with 14-16 people each week. I originally had been communicating with a tour guide who flaked and didn't reply and so only a month before my retreats, I found Porto Locals and inquired about a walking tour and picnic. Inês replied promptly and over just a couple of days and a few emails, we decided on the tour and the picnic at their shop which was absolutely lovely and amazing. For the 2nd week, they closed down the shop for us! I am so sorry that I can't remember the owners' names but they were so gracious and took such good care of us each week. There was an abundance of food and drink and they allowed us to stay as long as we wanted. We had a different guide each week but both were knowledgeable and engaging. A big heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to our wonderful experience.D on't hesitate to book with Porto Locals - it will enhance your stay in Porto!

      A really intersting experience
      This was a really excellent experience. Guide (sorry, have forgotten his name but he was from Madeira!!) was so knowledgeable and clearly passionate about his subject. The Ports we got to sample were all excellent and was interesting to hear why certain ones paired better with certain things compared to others. Also thought it was excellent value for money. Would highly recommend.

      A warm welcome to Porto
      We enjoyed two fantastic experiences with PortoLocals: Port tasting with Adriano and a walking tour with Gregorio. Both highly informative learning experiences and very entertaining, the events made us appreciate the tastes and views of Porto more than we could have expected. 5 ports were paired with different food to enhance the flavours including sweet & savoury. Adriano explained the history, wine making process & the differences. Gregorio who is highly knowledgeable on history culture & architecture. He took us to lots sights around the historic area including San Bento station, town hall, bookshop, English quarter, Parisian street and more - about 2.5-3 hours. We also had time for a coffee break. We started and ended the walk at their venue which is very tasteful, modern & central - a great starting point for the walk & nice venue for tastings. The warm welcome brought sunshine to our rather rainy visit, so we will be back again - highly recommended 5*.

      A good value, interesting and informative tour with knowledgeable guides
      What an incredible tour packed with so much information but presented humorously and with interesting facts. Ines was a great tour guide and she covered all of the main sites. There were 12 in our group and we had time to ask questions at each stop and also take photos. We knew that the tour did not involve entry to the sites but it gave us knowledge of where everything was and what we wanted to head back to. We enjoyed our try of Moscatel (?) at the end. This was a lovely touch to finish a packed 3 hour itinerary. I thought this was a very good value and worthwhile tour to do especially if you aren’t in Porto long.

      Very interesting and informative tour.
      We only had 4 guests so this became almost a semi-private tour. The guide was excellent: very knowledgeable and considerate. He did a great job explaining sites and history and gave good advices. Tour lasted about 2.5 hours and we finished off sampling some olive oil and Portuguese Port Wine. Very nice tour.

      Very nice
      Tour guide was very very knowledgeable about the history of Porto, as well as up to date on all current things. We walked roughly two miles total, some uphill and down hill parts of course. Slightly disappointed that we didn’t go into the Porto Cathedral, but that was known going into the tour - and that can add time to the trip obviously. Good service

      Amazing winery tour with breathtaking views
      We had an amazing time on our winery and boat tour with Tito as our guide. Tito did an incredible job taking us through a seamless day. He was very kind, professional, and knowledgeable. We tasted at two great wineries in the Douro Valley with beautiful scenery. The time seemed to go by so fast. We were grouped up with 5 other entertaining adults and it was the perfect group size. Having done several European tours like these in the past, you can tell it was very well organized in a thoughtful way. Highly recommend!

    It was quite a hot day so not the most pleasant hike but it paid off once we arrived at the waterfall. Beautiful spot. It was difficult to enjoy the hike since most of it is with your head down watching where you step but our guide Luis was a delight.

    Our guides were superb and such good company, and the hike itself + waterfalls were beautiful. We went on a cloudy day, and it was still drop-dead gorgeous. It was a perfect day trip from Porto for our group of friends. The following day, we went to a local movie theatre to watch an independent film (Légua), which featured one of the views we’d seen on the hike, and the wild wolves our guide had talked about in Geres also made a brief appearance. It was a lovely full circle experience, where the fabric of Portugal was shared with us in person on the hike and again in this devastatingly beautiful movie.

    We had a lovely hike in the Geres National Park followed by a swim in the cold pools which were amazing as it was a very hot day.
    Our guide was very friendly and shared many stories making this hike even better.
    What I loved the most, was the fact that there were no hidden surprises - we picked this because of the promise of a smaller hike and more swimming time which was exactly what happened.
    The hike itself was very pleasant, nothing too hard, but not a walk in the park as well.

    We had a nice hike with a group of 8 people. The tour guide was friendly, and the drive to the park from Porto was nice. After a 2-hour hike, we arrived at the pools where we could swim, which was refreshing and beautiful. Unfortunately, we had a little setback during the swimming part. Not to go into more details, but a big thumbs up to our guide and the other people from PortoLocals who helped us. Thank you again!!

    We definitely recommend this tour and PortoLocals in general.

    Kind regards!

    Me and my girlfriend did this tour yesterday and we had the best time hiking and swimming in Gerês National Park. We were guided by Andre, who was very nice and chill. He gave us a lot of information before, during and after the tour. Swimming in the lagoons was an amazing experience and the waters were very clear. The hike was perfectly timed, not too long but also not too short. This tour was by far the best part of our vacation it was beyond our expectations!

    Fantastic time out of the city! Not too hard of a hike, slight incline at times, rocky road but otherwise flat! Took over 1.5 hours to reach destination, minibus has air con too. Views are amazing, guide is patient and friendly (Joel). Remember to bring food, water, wet shoes and towels. Highly recommend, worth the money!! Book even if it says the weather looks bad, never believe the forecast in porto!

    We booked this tour last minutes as were impressed by the reviews. So happy we did.
    It was a good 90 minute hike along the mountain tops in Geres National Park to reach some beautiful pools.
    Views along the way were amazing, though watch your footing as the ground is loose with rock in places. When hot weather it gets roasting up in the mountain and there is no shade; bring a hat and clothing to cover limbs if sensitive to lots of sun. The lagoon pools were stunning and fresh; deep enough to dive or jump into and easy to climb out of, though be ware the rock can be slippery, so walk slowly.
    Such a beautiful place to visit and when warm a lovely sun trap for a couple of hours.
    Hike back was a lot warmer due to the afternoon sun, though along the trek there is a fresh water fountain to refresh.
    Our guide Miguel is fun and a bit nuts, but very courteous to all travellers. He impressed on us over and over there was no rush, though the pace to beginning was fast he was happy to go at the slowest walker's pace.
    One of the most beautiful places I have ever been and very happy with our tour with Miguel. Definitely would recommend this tour!

    Our guide Miguel was brilliant. Very scenic trek through the park, the natural pools were great for swimming in and the bar at the end was a lovely end to it all. A great day out to do something a little different and get out of the city of Porto for a while, to explore the countryside. I think it's great value for money, too. Thank you!
