Full description
On this route you will be delighted by the right bank of the Douro River to the sea. Along the way, we will pass through some historical neighborhoods that border the river, from Miragaia, through Massarelos to Lordelo do Ouro. Then we will enter Foz do Douro, a locality that only in the 19th century became part of the Porto municipality. A bathing area by excellence, it was much sought after by the Porto aristocracy. Here we will find the beautiful Jardim do Passeio Alegre and the oldest district of the western part of the city, Foz Velha. Be dazzled by the narrow streets of this neighborhood and with a São João Baptista church on top of it. There will still be time to stroll along the Atlantic, Brazil and Montevideo avenues until you reach the Gonçalves Zarco Square (rotunda do Castelo do Queijo). Here we can see Matosinhos Beach in the distance, famous for surfing, in fact, it is known as one of the best beaches in the north of Portugal for beginners. We go over the viaduct, above Parque da Cidade until Praça Cidade do S. Salvador (rotunda da Anémona), we continue and make our way to the beach. On the way back there will still be time to stop at a special viewpoint, and have a beautiful panoramic view of the Douro River estuary, with the natural reserve and the left bank.

Meeting point

The meeting place is special, it is the oldest part of the city, the Pena Ventosa hill, where the Cathedral was built in the 12th century. The first buildings of the city were built around this fortified building, more than 800 years ago, limited by the Cerca Velha or Primitive Wall. At the access to the Cathedral, there is a statue in honor of Vímara Peres, military noble, who was given the power to populate the region in the 9th century. I will park the tuk-tuk in front of it.

Ricardo was Excellent, enjoyed the “by the water “ tour. Was able to maneuver through the very narrow streets and go to hidden gems. Even gave us good recommendations for restaurants.

Tout était parfait. Nous avons passé un super moment accompagné de Ricardo en tant que guide qui nous a tout bien expliqué sur les monuments de Porto et ce jusqu'au bord de l'eau. Nous garderons un magnifique souvenir de cet expérience. Merci
