The tuk tuk tour with our guide Helena was brilliant. Helena made sure to show us and tell us about so many interesting and historical places, plus negotiated some really steep roads that on foot, would have been tricky. I definitely recommend the tuk tuk city tour... well worth it.

Super moyen de découvrir la ville et d'en apprendre un peu sur son histoire. Cela permet de faire un tour sans se fatiguer pour repérer les lieux à explorer à pied. Le guide nous a également recommandé des restaurants sympa et typiques. Je recommande cette expérience

we had a great guide - Ines! Friendly, informative and she took time to stop and share stories with us. brought us to a quiet but strategic site to catch sunset. that was a great surprise for us! Thank you for making our one day in Porto memorable & enjoyable.

This was the perfect way to get the overall feel of the city. Andre was a great guide, and the small TukTuk is the best way to travel to small streets.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time on tour. Our guide also gave us directions for after
