I LOVED this tour. I cannot stress this enough! I did a number of walking tours on my trip and this was honestly one of the best ones. Diogo was a fantastic guide - hilarious, knowledgeable, and engaging. It was great to learn about the history of Porto and to hear Diogo's own experience growing up in the city and how it's changed in recent years. I also appreciated Diogo's recommendations on where to eat and where to go based on what you were interested in at the end of the tour! I really enjoyed this tour and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who's interested in learning more about this beautiful city!

Our Porto walking tour with João Costa on March 23rd, 2023 was fantastic. Our daughter had been on the tour about 2 weeks earlier and highly recommended it and we were not disappointed. João is very knowledgeable about Porto and Portuguese history and delivers the factual elements with the perfect blend of humour. He immediately knew our entire group by name and constantly ensured he kept everyone engaged through his animated delivery.

Whenever we visit a new city we like to do a walking tour to get our bearings and find out a little more about the place before heading off on our own to explore further. So on our first morning we joined Andre's walking tour of Porto. Andre was extremely informative and kept the tour light hearted and moving so we didn't lose interest! He also gave us lots of ideas on how to spend our time during our very short 2 day visit to Porto which meant we got the best out of our trip. I would definitely recommend this tour especially if you're just there for a short time as you get a good overall view of the city and it's attractions!

Having traveled to many cities and participated on many free walking tours, my sister and I both agree this one was by far the best. Our guide Diogo set the stage for our perfect Porto vacation. We left the tour feeling knowledgeable not only about the history of the city, but also about present day Porto.
He was a great storyteller and and managed to make learning thousands of years of history in three hours feel easy and fun—we didn’t want the tour to end. His humor brought levity to tough subjects about Portugal’s past, which was informative. This was the most comprehensive tour we have been on, but also the most enjoyable. We definitely recommend this tour, and if possible this tour with Diogo.

So, we read some of the reviews for the Sandemans Walking Tour and decided to book one for Friday 10th Jan. We booked on for the morning tour (11 am) but were too hungover to make it. Fortunately, we turned up for the 2 pm one and were made to feel very welcome by Diogo who said it wouldn't be a problem to join the tour.

I don't want to spoil the tour for those who are going to book on to it, but it was a very fun and interesting tour with loads of facts that we weren't aware of. He took us to some places that we would never have gone to without the knowledge of a local. We had a nice little 15 min break halfway through the 3-hour tour and had the opportunity to book some other excursions if we wanted. It was very laid back and under no pressure or obligation at all, we booked onto the boat tour for the Saturday (15euros). We really enjoyed that too, so thanks for the recommendation Diogo !!! (we took a few beers with us too :)

I can't recommend this tour enough, Diogo was a well mannered, charming and funny tour guide, who bent over backwards to make the day fun and informative and gave us some brilliant restaurant options for that evening too.

10 out of 10 Diogo !!!

Thanks from Liverpool and Barcelona - Dom and Fran

I took the Porto free walking tour with João. This is the 13th Sandemans walking tour I have been on so knew what to expect.

João was enthusiastic and polite, however I felt the tour dragged on and we spent too long at each stop.

The highlight of the tour was the amazing view of Porto at Miradouro da Vitória.

I would still recommend taking a free walking tour as it’s a great introduction to any city.

This was an extremely informative and enjoyable tour, taking in some key landmarks at a comfortable pace. Joao was an excellent guide, providing the group with an understanding of the history of Porto, and insights into its architecture and culture. He did so with a wonderful sense of humour, which made the tour fun throughout, and never lost the attention of the group. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting the city.

Recently we did a 3 hour walking tour in Porto with Joao through Sandlemans tour company. Joao was a wealth of knowledge. He recounted the history of Portugal in a chronological fashion as it related to the buildings we passed and the areas of the city we visited. He was easy to understand while commanding the attention of his audience. We thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend this tour!

We did the 2.5 hour walking tour with Diana and she was phenomenal- exuberant, charismatic and knowledgeable about the history of not only Porto but the whole country. She makes the history fun and takes you on a journey to understand the culture of Porto and the Porto people. She also sent us some suggestions for other areas in the country. You should be so lucky to have Diana as your guide!
