Meeting Point

At your hotel in the city center

09:10 AM

Fernandine Walls (Old City Walls)

As the city began to expand, in the Middle Ages, beyond its ancient roman primitive walls, King Fernando ordered the construction of new walls, almost 10 meters high, to enclose and protect the city and its people. A few sections of these Fernandine ramparts still exist.

09:40 AM

Santa Clara Church

Tucked away within a courtyard in the Batalha district, this 15th-century church, built as part of a monastery complex to re-house the nuns of the Order of Saint Clare, is famed for its magnificently opulent interior which every possible space is covered with carved and gilded woodwork. Today it's considered one of the finest examples of Portuguese Baroque and Rococo architecture.

10:30 AM

Porto's Cathedral

Built in the highest part of the city, next to the walls that once protected the city, the Cathedral is the most important religious building in Porto.

11:30 AM

São Lourenço Church

Compared to most churches in Porto, which are excessively decorated, its simplicity makes it a very enjoyable visit. São Lourenço Church, as well as being a convent, it also houses the Sacred Art and Archaeology Museum.

11:40 AM

Medieval Quarter

In the oldest part of the city, this quarter is one of the most colourful and picturesque neighbourhoods of Porto, known for its intricate group of high houses that seem to bend and narrow medieval streets.

12:10 PM

Ribeira

Located on the riverbank of the Douro, with colourful and wonderfully decorated façades, Ribeira is one of the most beautiful and liveliest districts in Porto’s historic centre.

Fantastic Walking Tour

Susanna was fantastic! Her vast knowledge of the city enhanced the tour and gave us one of our best experiences in Porto. She added a personal touch with stories to the tour which everyone in the party enjoyed and took us to a few of her local favorite stops. At the end of the tour she provided us with maps, guides and recommendations to help us keep exploring. I would highly recommend her to anyone visiting and will look to utilize her services when we return! Thanks Susanna!

Incredible Tour of Porto

I booked a private tour with Susana for a group of 17 people. We were in Porto for a company offsite and the tour was the highlight of the trip for us. Susana shared many incredible facts about the city and mixed in her own personal stories that made us feel at home in Porto. She also helped us with a last minute reservation in an incredible restaurant. Susana is lovely and I can't recommend her enough!

Dear Mr. Caleb, Thank you so much for your kind words!! I really enjoyed meeting you and your group and the time we shared! Wishing you and your group all the best and keep good care of my (now yours) sardine!! Best regards, Susana A.
