About the tour

On this tour we will explore the riverside area of Porto known as Ribeira - heart of the UNESCO world heritage site. Here arrived boats with goods of different colours and smells, making this the liveliest part of the city. Here mothers washed their clothes in the river while their children swam in it. Here lived and still do the original "portuenses". Let me explain to you why we are known as "tripeiros" (tripe eaters) and share with you few more of our peculiar yet delicious dishes. If you want to understand the real Porto and its people you will not want to miss this tour. (Include sights as the XIV century customs building, "alminhas" - memorial of the french invasions, the Eiffel bridge - Maria Pia and many more).

Very beautiful place, wished I could have seen more of the pretty houses and less of the quaint dark streets, but overall a pretty tour and friendly tourist guide.
