  • We begin by picking you up very early in the morning (it is a 3 hour drive from Lisbon to Porto). On the way there our guide will give you an overview of the city and tour. It is a good chance to learn a few points about the city you will later visit.

    First things first we’ll take a stroll through the city center. You’ll be delighted with the architecture of the multi-colored buildings and old cafes near the river. It was considered a few years ago as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. From the iconic neighborhood you have a perfect view of the Luis I bridge.

    Next up we’ll visit the “Clérigos Tower”, a baroque architectural building with an incredible panoramic view of all of Porto. We head on to visit the main Cathedral, another incredible piece of ancient architecture and a religious landmark.

    We highly recommend that our stop for lunch includes the famously renowned Porto dish “Francesinha”. It is probably the most famous Portuguese dish and came originally from this part of Portugal.

    In the afternoon we will visit the stunning train station, “São Bento”. It is a must-see for all visitors. The train station’s walls are covered with over 20.000 hand painted tiles. It was built to cement trade.

    Another very important stop during our visit is the “Majestic Café”, founded almost 100 years ago. Among others, this café has had many renowned visitors, such as JK Rowling, the writer behind the Harry Potter book series. It is said she wrote part of the first book on that very café.

    Our visit could not be concluded without first taking a tour through the wine cellars and tasting Port Wine. Here you will learn all about Port wine history and production process. There are many other things to see in Porto but likely there won’t be time. Don’t worry because if there is we will have suggestions for you!
