We were greeted by Diana, our guide, who took us for three hours to discover Porto, and she was very professional and ready to answer all our questions. Particularly interesting was the fact that, in her presentation of the city, Diana did not limit herself to talking about the monuments or works of art, but tried to get us into the spirit and history of the society of this city. Also very appreciable is the fact that, although the visit was in English, the guide took care to make himself understood even by those who had not had a total command of the language. It is definitely an experience to do!
