Two minutes walk from Carris Ribeira Hotel and entry is in small groups so not long queues. English speaking guides every hour or so.

An interesting site right in the centre of Porto. Very interesting guided tours - but be sure to book in advance as they sell out quickly!

A wonderful building with an informative tour.The highlights are the chamber with the badges of long gone empires e.g. Romanovs and Austro Hungarian Empires and the the room done as an arabic style room with beautiful inscriptions and decorations. Not to be missed.

The tour guide share a lot of interesting tidbits about Palacio da Bolsa. The last room was the highlight, but it was really difficult to take good pictures in there. We were glad that we included this as part of our visit to Porto.

See Gustav Eiffel’s office but the highlight is the amazing Arab salon. You need to take a guided tour as you are not allowed into the building otherwise. Pick a tour in a language you understand.

You must take the 45 minute tour. If you want to get a reservation in a specific language, make the reservation by mid-day the day before. The tour leader was gruff but good and actually tongue-in-cheek funny. The architecture was magnificent as was the furnishings....More
