What our guests are saying

Wonderful tour of Porto from a local perspective instead of a repeat of a travel book itinerary. We were treated like royalty wherever we went, especially at a boutique wine lodge that we would have never found on our own. Fantastic wines! Rodrigo also gifted us some delicious empanadas at the local market and took us to a stunning church that we never heard of. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Porto and wanting to go off the beaten path.

We have taken plenty of tours around the world but the one we took in Porto was truly exceptional. What sets Portoalities apart is how unique their itinerary is (from a local market to quaint medieval streets, an exclusive wine tasting to the most fantastic lunch stop), everything was clearly thought of from the beginning to the end. Also, the guide Pedro went the extra mile to ensure we got a personalized experience, from giving us a great seafood restaurant suggestion to making a detour so that my wife could buy some shoes. Thank you Portoalities for ensuring a great start to our week in Portugal!

Tommy is an incredibly knowledgeable guide – we felt we could ask any question and get an informed answer, not only about Porto but about the Portuguese culture and political situation. He is also sweet, fun to be around and handled our youngsters like an ace. He took us to an amazing Port wine cellar, followed by lunch at a traditional restaurant (amazing tapas!) and a tour in the city. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for an authentic experience in Porto!

All your questions answered… and then some!

What if I need to cancel my reservation?

We understand that sometimes things don’t go as planned when you’re traveling, and you may need to cancel your reservation. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

Our cancellation policy allows you to cancel up to 48 hours before the tour starts and receive a FULL refund. That way, you can book your tour with us without worrying about unforeseen circumstances.

If you need to cancel your reservation, just send us an email and we’ll take care of the rest.

What if I want to change the date of my tour?

We understand that plans can change, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request. If you need to change the date of your tour, please let us know as soon as possible and we’ll check our availability.

While we can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to change the date, we’ll do everything we can to find a suitable alternative for you. If we have availability on the requested date, we’ll be happy to reschedule your tour.

Why should I choose your Porto tours over your competitors, if they are cheaper?

At Portoalities we believe that if you prioritize excellence over price, you should choose our tours. Here are a few reasons why:

  • With almost a decade in the business, we have established a strong track record of satisfied customers and have built a reliable network of partners to ensure a seamless tour experience.
  • We have the most knowledgeable guides; people who have a solid background in history, spend months in training (unlike other tour operators, that feed very inexperienced guides to the lions!) and have years of experience. They have lived all their lives in Porto, are passionate about our region, and unapologetically geeky about Portuguese culture, Port wine making, and Porto’s history.
  • We provide a comprehensive and immersive experience, including skip-the-line access to all monuments on the tour and a freshly ground coffee and snack at the famous Bolhão market.

So, while we may not be the cheapest option, we strive to provide exceptional value and ensure our customers have an unforgettable experience.

What benefits do I get by choosing the full day tour in Porto instead of the half day tour?

The full day tour offers an enhanced experience, combining the highlights of the half day tour with exclusive access to a renowned wine cellar, a delicious lunch at a traditional Portuguese restaurant featuring authentic local dishes, and a tour of the iconic Ribeira neighborhood, recognized by UNESCO. With the full day tour, you’ll have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the sensory journey of Porto’s cuisine and wines while discovering the hidden gems of the city that you would otherwise miss.

Can I customize the itinerary for this tour?

This tour follows a set itinerary that covers the city’s highlights and hidden gems.

However, we would be delighted to design a fully customized tour that fits all your travel needs and desires!

Please note that customized tours are always more expensive than booking standard tours.

If you’re interested in a customized tour, we’ll be happy to provide you with a quote based on your specific requests. Please email us at sara@portoalities.com to start planning your dream tour.

What if it is raining?

We always run our tours rain or shine, but we understand that some people might not feel comfortable walking in the rain. If that’s the case, we have a few options to make the tour more enjoyable for you. We can stop at a cozy café for a warm drink while we wait for the rain to pass, and we can also spend more time inside monuments.

We do recommend that you come prepared for the weather, as Porto’s climate can be unpredictable. It’s a good idea to bring a waterproof jacket, comfortable shoes or boots for walking, and a scarf to protect yourself from the wind.

If the forecast is for heavy rain and you prefer to reschedule the tour for another day, we’re happy to accommodate your request (subject to availability). Just let us know as soon as possible so we can make the necessary arrangements.

Are restrooms available?

Yes, there are public restrooms available throughout the city and your guide will be happy to direct you to the nearest one during your tour.

Is this tour in Porto appropriate for children?

While our tours in Porto have a history-focused content that may not be ideal for very young kids, our guides are warm, funny, and great with children. We welcome families with kids to join us on our tours and make sure that everyone feels included and engaged.

Additionally, we always make a stop at Porto’s best ice cream shop during our tours, which is a hit with kids (and adults too!). So, bring the little ones along and let us show them the best of Porto!

Is transportation provided?

We don’t offer hotel pick-up services for any of our walking tours of Porto. However, we carefully choose meeting points that are easy to find and conveniently located. You’ll receive all the details about the meeting point in your tour confirmation email. If you have any questions or concerns about finding the meeting point, please feel free to reach out to us and we’ll be more than happy to assist you in any way we can.

What if I get tired during the tour?

This is a private walking tour in Porto, and we understand that the city is quite hilly. However, we can customize the pace according to your needs, and take as many breaks as needed. If you need to rest or take a break, simply let your guide know and they will be happy to accommodate your needs. We can also stop for coffee or refreshments at any time during the tour. Our goal is to ensure that you have an enjoyable and comfortable experience exploring our beautiful city! 🙂

How many people can go on the tour?

This tour can be booked directly for groups of up to 8 people. If your group is larger, please contact us at sara@portoalities.com for pricing and availability. We have experience accommodating larger groups – our largest group to date consisted of 60 people!
