Vini creates such an amazing and truly magical experience for the tour participants. He intertwines Potter references in the city with the general history of Porto and Portugal. He goes above and beyond to create a memorable experience. A must do for all Potterheads and people interested in a 'more than your regular city tour' experience!

Learning a city in foot gives one a different perspective than reading about it or even driving around. This tour was small enough and long enough to highlight several important places and leave the participants with enough knowledge, curiosity and energy to continue the journey in their own.

Cannot say enough ..good things!!! ..Vini was FANTASTIC...FULL OF fun facts and an amazing sense of humor and infectious was pouring down and we still had the best time ever!!!book now!!!..and don't let the muggles get u down!

it was lovely. Vini was very passionate about the subject matter. he was great and engaging. it was fun walking around Porto and learning history as well as having it tied into Harry Potter.

The guide, Vinnie, was a very likable guy that made this tour fun and informative. Even a huge Potterhead like myself got some new information and interesting stories. Thanks a lot!
