Owner description: Have you ever thought of taking a seat on the 22nd chair of the Dragao Stadium's Presidential Box? By visiting the Dragao Stadium, you will be able to experience the President's Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa place and enjoy an inside and privileged look over this worldwide referenced work designed by architect Manuel Salgado. You will have the opportunity to see the pitch from the access tunnel's point of view, to feel the scent of the dressing rooms, to take the coach's seat on the press conference room just like you are making the match analysis... On this path you will appreciate an engineering project that delivers all of the requirements that make it environmentally friendly, you can witness on the stands the 29 kilometres of rows that can fill up to 52 thousand spectators and amaze yourself with the artistic legacy of Master Julio Resende and Alberto Carneiro. All of this in one tour only!

This was a great Tour, but then I am a stadium geek.

God value for money and the guide is very knowledgable. The only critiscisms

1) Why are you not allowed to take your own photos? Bizzare rule and the only stadium i've visited who impose such a rule. I dont want or need to pay an official photographer thank you!

2)No museum. For a club of Portos standing and success they should have one. Good thing on our trip (29th Sept) was that it was a special anniversary so they had the trophies on display.

We took our two sons (aged 6&9) and it cost 26 Euros for a fully escorted tour (there were about 12/15 of us). We saw presidents box, changing rooms, press room / TV studio as well as being able to go pitchside. Really organised, interesting and the guide was a Porto fan through & through!
Tours are hourly (on the half hour from 10.30, I think with a break at lunch) but check the website before you go - it might not be available on match days etc
Only downside was that you were not able to take photos and the tour photographer would take as many as you liked but sell them to you at two pictures (in card frames) for 5 Euros - if you could have taken photos yourself I would have easily given this 5 stars.
The merchandising store was surprisingly fairly priced although the replica shirts were the same price as everywhere else in the world!!!

We took a tour of the Dragao while in Porto and thought it was pretty good. Some of the other reviews refer to the strict rule of no photography (there is an official club photographer who tags along so you are expected to pay him for group / family photos) and that's a shame and the tour is certainly very regimented by the guide and the security man. Having toured Camp Nou a few years ago it certainly a more strictly controlled experience, but the guide is very knowledgeable and she is obviously a fan of the team. Putting those restrictions aside, if you are a fan yourself or just like visiting famous football grounds then it's worth it for a look behind the scenes and a sit in the President's seat.
