Lets travel back in time to the 1920's and explore through buildings, squares, stores and stories Porto in a decade of political and social change. Focusing on Sta. Catarina commercial street, we'll pass by the Magestic Café, Nascimento Department Store & Palladium Café, ending our visit at the entertainment square of Porto named Batalha. Not forgetting the two churches in the area that combined hold almost 27.000 tiles on their façades.
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.

Another wonderful tour with Claudia. Her love and knowledge of her country shines through so much in all her tours, and I will definitely book tours with her when I visit Portugal in the future.
