About the tour

Right here, in the vital area of Porto, lets start our tour with a tale of hearts. Learning why the most beloved King of the city made such a generous donation to Porto and its inhabitants. Behind us an exquisite Palace, in front of us the Town Hall, to the right the unbelievable S. Bento Train Station. Where shall we go from here? Want to help me decide?

Meet your local guide


Claudia was born in Porto and in love with it ever since. Because she was raised up there she knows Porto's streets as the palm of her hand. In 2003 Claudia finished her degree in tour guiding and got her licence that same year. She has a short masters in wine and loves to try and discover new Portuguese wine always (of course!) along with the unique local gastronomy. Come and join her walking up and down the streets of steep Porto and be mesmerized by its beauty.

Claudia has been guiding since Jun 2003
