Know More about this tour

During your nighttime tour of Porto, listen to the commentary from a guide that highlights the city's monuments and landmarks, lit up for the evening with floodlights. You will drive along famous Avenida dos Aliados, with its monumental architecture and grand open plazas like Liberdade Square.

Porto is renowned for its historic churches, and you will see them in a different light on this nighttime tour. Admire the lit-up bell tower of Clrigos Church, one of Porto's signature landmarks, its Baroque scrolls, and campanile visible across the city. You will also drive past the Romanesque architecture of Porto's cathedral, one of the city's oldest buildings and flanked by two square towers.

See more recent landmarks like the grand So Bento train station visit during the day to admire its blue-and-white azulejo tile panels depicting scenes from Portugal's past. You will also take a drive through Portos scenic Ribeirinha, a port area known for its restaurants, nightlife, and views of the city's lamplit bridges and riverside.

Continue your Porto night out with dinner at the typical Portuguese restaurant in the intimate surroundings, O Fado, with tiled walls and soft lantern lighting. You will be served a traditional meal consisting of a starter, meat or fish main course, and dessert, accompanied by wine, beer or juice.

While dining, sit back and relax as the poignant songs of Portuguese Fado wash over you. The two-hour Fado show introduces you to Portugal's unforgettably moving music, sung by a soloist (the fadista) and accompanied by classical acoustic guitar.

    byrundtur består i at køre over til udsigten på den anden side af Luis broen . Gå istedet selv over , eller tag toget . Fado optræden OK, men maden svømmede i fed olie . Bar præg af at være genopvarmet i denne

    Our driver/guide, Nuno, was prompt, courteous and informative. We heard details we had not heard on two previous tours, so even though it was our last evening in Porto, we enjoyed the sightseeing aspect of the evening. The restaurant was great - very good vegetarian three-course meal made especially for us with excellent, friendly service and regular wine top-ups. The best part of the evening, though, was Fado - everyone should experience this aspect of Portuguese culture; vibrant and emotional music.

    The food was incredible (get the pork chops!) and the music was lovely. Our driver was quite knowledgeable. Great time had by all.

    Enjoyed the dinner and, of course, the Fado music. Lots of ambiance and talented musicians. Wonderful experience, except the delay in transport, which cut some of our night tour sites.

    Great food, enjoyable music, convivial company. If going solo ask to sit with others on the tour, as they automatically seat you alone. I was lucky other guests insisted I join them.
