    Ana Paula knows her her city and country! Her historical knowledge is extensive and detailed. She answered our questions comfortably and easily. We mostly wandered through and around the Jewish Quarter and Riberia Square and ended with a lovely River Cruise.

    Ana Paula is amazing. -- That day she was not feeling well, but she came at the rendez-vous with a bright smile. --
    History creates stories -- Between Henry the navigator, The São Bento Railway Station, Sé do Porto Porto Cathedral and the Palácio da Bolsa Stock Exchange Palace, my friend and I, we had a great times even if that day, it was raining. --

    The Private Porto Secrets tour was very enlightening! I compared what I learned with some colleagues who took a larger group tour and many things I learned were not even included in their tour! And I had pictures to prove it! I would HIGHLY recommend this tour! Ana, the tour guide, spends the extra time and effort with you!

    Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable. We learned so much about this history of Porto but also Portugal. This really is a trip to discover things off the beaten path. While our guide pointed out certain sights and explained about them, she left a visit to those places on us while showing us hidden gems of the city. We saw things I know we would have never found on our own. This tour was worth while and a highlight of our time in Porto.

    Bruno was amazing!!! he took us to various places and gave us a history lesson regarding each place. It was a lot of walking but it was well worth it. Thank you Bruno!

    Learned lots!

    The walking private tour was exactly what we needed! You can see monuments and museums from the deck of the bus, but you cannot see intricate details of small secretive places. Our guide Anna was knowledgable and passionate about the city she lives in. At our own pace we walked along the river, went into old quarters and breathed the unique atmosphere of the place. It was a great tour that exceeded our expectation.

    This was a disappointing tour due to the fact that we expected a private tour, and we were joined by another person who was not quite so fit to keep up with our party of six. We thought we were supposed to be having a break for lunch, which never happened until the end of our walk and we only had a short stop for coffee in a not very salubrious café.
    We would definitely not recommend this tour to others.

    The tour didn't last quite as long as advertised but this ended up being ok with us since we saw and did everything we wanted to. Our guide was wonderful: friendly, helpful, very knowledgeable and we couldn't have asked for anything more. She was also very flexible and allowed us to choose our own way and see what interested us. She also gave us great tips on what to do/see/eat after we left her and for hte rest of our trip. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone travelling in Porto.

    Nice private tour with a guide passionate about the city and its offerings. Would recommend doing the optional boat ride along the river for some beautiful views. The tour was long but covered a lot of ground. Being just myself and my friend on the walking tour, it was adapted to our own pace too. Ana also kindly provided us with lots of stories as well as tips for good places to eat and drink.
    Thanks for a lovely day in the pretty city of Porto!
