We invite you to Porto Tour, because without visiting this city, a vacation in Portugal is unthinkable! Porto is the center of the Northern Portugal, the city that gave the name to the country of Portugal and the drink port wine or, as the Portuguese themselves call it, "Vinho do Porto".

The city of Porto is more likely to remind you of northern Europe than other cities in Portugal.

Despite the fact that we are talking about the second largest city in the country, it is cozy here even on the noisy streets of Baixa and the historical center. Busy shopping street Santa Catarina with shops, the Chapel of Souls and the famous bohemian cafe Majestic; pedestrian street of Flowers with numerous cafes and souvenir shops; the Ribeira promenade with restaurants and views of the Luis I bridge connecting the banks of the Douro River; the main square of the city, Square of Freedom, where a monument to King Pedro IV is erected, framed by the most beautiful buildings of the early 20th century.

All these and other large and narrow streets of Porto hide interesting sights, such as the Lello bookstore; Bolhão food market; tiles-decorated São Bento train station; churches of the Discalced Carmelites and Carmo; the monumental Cathedral of Porto; The Stock Exchange Palace, the highest bell tower in Portugal- Clerigos Tower, etc.

Walking around the city, you can take magnificent panoramic photos of Porto from viewpoints, have a bite of traditional Portuguese cakes, or ham "presunto", or salt cod croquets with “green wine”. Also, I will help you with advice in choosing a good dry wine or aguardente (Portuguese brandy) in one of the wine shops.

After a walking tour in Porto, you can visit the port wine cellars in the town of Vila Nova de Gaia and get acquainted with the production of port wine and taste different types of it. In the shop at the winery, you can buy port wine for every taste and budget. I can do a tour of the winery for you for an additional fee.

The cost of tour depends on the number of people, the duration of the tour and the place of departure.
