1. Porto: Guided Tuk-Tuk Tour by the Water

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.

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.
