On my last day in Porto I decided to do this tour and I contacted them via whatsapp: the booking procedure was quick and easy! They also provided all the covid-19 related protocols and information, which made me feel safer. The tour is individual, so the spots are really limited. I guess I was lucky to find an available tour with such a short notice, but I would advice to book in advance , so that you can be sure to do the tour on the day you prefer. The running experience was really great! We started from Aliados and ran through the Luis I bridge right at the time of the sunrise, so the view was amazing! Perfect timing! Since the tour is individual, you can run at the pace you prefer and stop for pictures whenever you want! Also, while running, there is a very interesting explanation of the history of Porto, plus answers to any question you may have about the city! At the end, we ran 8 km in 2 hours, which was the right pace for me! (you can ran faster if you want/can) I really recommend this experience! And if you still have doubt, you can contact them, they are super helpful!

I did the "heart of porto" tour and it was a blast! Sergio was great company, super knowledgeable and adjusted the pace to suit my comfort level. The route is nice and varied and the souvenir video and additional background info I received afterward was also a really nice touch. Thoroughly recommend!

The best option to get to know the port and run at the same time. Even being Portuguese and knowing something of Porto, taking this tour was the best decision to make my morning jogging perfect. Running, visiting secret places in Porto and learning more about its history was perfect

Muito Obrigado Pedro, pelo tempo que dispensou a partilhar a sua opinião e por ter aceitado o desafio de conhecer um pouco melhor a Invicta e a sua História, apesar de a visitar regularmente. Votos de bons treinos!

I am training for a half marathon and was worried when I realized that my (scheduled) longest training run coincided with my vacation to Portugal. Despite my best intentions, I am just not disciplined enough to run more than a few miles on my own while on vacation, which is where Porto Running Tours and Sergio came to the rescue. I found Porto Running Tours on TripAdvisor and reserved a 17 km custom running tour a couple of weeks before my trip. Sergio was accommodating (fulfilled my request for a flat route and to take a walking break on the one hilly section), friendly, and knowledgeable (I learned interesting facts about Porto’s buildings and Portugal’s history). Sergio has excellent English and is passionate about running and his running tours. Not only did I complete my long training run feeling strong (Sergio’s pacing helped), but I also had an opportunity to see a part of Porto that I would not have otherwise visited. This was my first running tour, but it will definitely not be my last.

I am currently training for the NYC marathon and while traveling in Porto needed to maintain my training scheduled so I decided to do a 15 mile run with Porto Running tours. I am so happy that I did! I had a private tour with Sergio and we ran through old city, past the soccer stadium, to the park, and then along the ocean back by the Ribeira Square and bridges. I highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to explore the city of Porto! Sergio was wonderful to run alongside and I learned a lot about the history and culture of Porto! This definitely beats sitting on a tour bus!! If you are looking for an active way to explore Porto this tour is the one to do!

Thanks so much for your preference! Miles go by much easier when we have a running partner, don't they? Buses and treadmills are not an option in Porto where there's so much to see outside :) Have fun at NYC marathon!
