What people are saying about Mercado do Bolhão

The tour was excellent as was out guide. She explained much about the history of Porto as well as the various sites we visited along the way starting at the Cathedral and making our way down to the river and then back up into the center of town and ending at the bookstore. All in all it was a very good introduction to Porto and have us a good sense of the city as a start for our visit. I would recommend this tour to anyone new to the city as a way to get oriented.

Ricardo was an excellent tour guide. Gave us many great insights into the history of Porto along with lots of info on food and drink as well. Much appreciated and entertaining on a rainy day in Porto.

Great experience! Started with coffee and move to a host of wonderful food and drinks. Great group and fabulous guide. We are thrilled to have done this

Really great guide and a small group size. I liked that all the places were hidden and unassuming but delicious

Excellent and knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended.
