Olá! Hi! I’m Izzy! Thanks for coming to my page and hopefully soon, Porto!
Originally from Lisbon, I moved to Porto in 98 to get my college degree in Biology. So quickly I fell in love with this city, its people, its food and wine - Porto is the homeland of the famous Port Wine and Francesinha, one of the best sandwiches in the world - its rich diverse history and world-renowned cultural treasures that I have been living here since then.
After University, I lived in Paris for one year, where I got a graduate degree in Image, Communication and Protocol - communicating with people is my passion – and I have been working in Tourism and Hospitality for the past years.
Traveling is all about exploring and understanding the place you visit, its people, history, culture and heritage diversity, as well as experience their traditions and gastronomy. Only this way you’ll be able to make unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime. As your guide, I´ll show you the city of Porto beyond the standard and conventional tourist-made itineraries, with all the well-known highlights, on tailor-made experiences, often along unexpected routes.
Whether it’s a Walking Tour through Medieval Porto, a Culinary Tasting at Porto’s most iconic restaurants, or a Guided Tour in the North of Portugal, for small groups, couples, families, students, business professionals or solo travellers, anything is possible. Just choose from one or more of my predesignated tour options or contact me and I will create the best itinerary based on your interests and needs!
See you soon!

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!

Dear Mr. David W., it's been a great honor for me to get to know you and your wonderful wife! It's been an honor to show you Porto! Thank you! I wish you all the best and a great time here in Porto! Best regards, Susana A.
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!
