About the tour

Gardens have the ability to stand as references of some of the most important moments of our lives. Who doesn't remember picking flowers for mum? Sharing a giggle with grandpa while rolling down the grass? Playing ball with a brother at the park down the road? In Porto's case, the Crystal Palace gardens retain a special place in the inhabitants' hearts. Allow me to share them with you. To explain what motivated their creation, how they were conceived and together with the Crystal Palace how they have been transformed and adapted to new times and needs. Hopefully at the end of our journey you'll understand the importance of this historical place to Porto and its people.

Come and join her walking up and down the streets of steep Porto and be mesmerized by its beauty.

Claudia is a lovely tour guide who puts lots of research into her tours. Judging by the title, I thought we would be seeing the old crystal palace instead of just the gardens & surrounding area. The scenery was lovely but for me, the content wasn't as rich as some of her other tours. Thank you.

Another guide who never rushes but is informative, able to read chat and respond, whilst covering wide area on a tour! Guides like Claudia make you realise that ‘speed’ doesn’t necessarily mean seeing more
