About the tour

Are you ready for amazing pictures?! Porto's most beautiful postcard is its river front, the famous medieval "Ribeira". The best way to see it is from the other side of the river, in Gaia. Photography lovers will definitely like this tour: we'll walk the riverfront and see the old hilly city from a distance, understanding its evolution and history throughout the centuries. Seeing the old "rabelo" boats, we'll talk about the famous Port Wine, its creation and how this business changed the local economy. While you learn about it, why not taste a Port in the confort of your sofa? And also see the Cellars, the river Douro and the iconic Luis I bridge, among other surprises! Everyone has their cameras ready?

Sara is a wonderful guide - she is enthusiastic and knowledgeable . She obviously has a great love for Porto and this comes through in her commentary. Her time working in the Port company gave her lots of specialised information which enabled her the bring the history of Port to life. Highly recommended.
