FIRST YOU CRAWL AND THEN YOU WALK
As babies we first learn how to crawl and then how to stand but our memory only remembers how to walk!
Since the beginning of times, human beings are drawn towards meeting other places no matter their purpose. Pilgrimages are a good example of that as it is something that remains until nowadays because it is believed that will always involve pleasure.
Besides being an outdoor activity, doing a Walking Tour Porto has a lot of benefits not only to the environment but mainly to your health, and the good news is, it is something everyone can do without any special training. Just choose a pair of comfortable shoes, have a quick look at the weather forecast and dress accordingly!
That is why we truly believe that a walking tour will never be old fashioned, and as locals, we intend to show you the best our city has to offer in a leisure pace.
best porto walking tour, why?
You have to ask for days off on vacation, then it is time for you to book a flight and afterwards comes finding the best accommodation that suits your need in thousands of different offers. Transportation is also that cross your mind and there you go checking distances and how you can go from place A to place B. Finally, it is time for packing so, leave the discovery of Porto to us!
We all live in a stressed world where nobody has enough time for everything…
Our local storytelling guides are here for that! We will give you, not only a great introduction to the city but the possibility of knowing more and being more involved in the city lifestyle. We worked hard to find the best stories to tell you, hidden behind every highlight of this UNESCO world heritage city.
You can visit the city by yourself or even on a free walking tour Porto, but on our small groups, we privilege the contact with the locals, to show their stories and what makes them unique in everything they do or offer. We believe that only with this easier interaction between Guide – Traveler – Local, you can feel a part of the city and become a true “Tripeiro”. At the end of the tour, our storytelling guides will share their contact and will be willing to help you with recommendations or questions you might have. This will also allow you to relax afterwards with a better idea of what to do next and how to spend your time in Porto.
Even on our join-in tours we have the philosophy of “slow Travel” which is based on the idea of better knowing a small area well and at a leisure pace, rather than rushing to know a bit of different areas. Our philosophy is to help you to make the most of every moment of your vacation in Porto.
And because during a walking tour we ended knowing a place in a more intimate way, we decided to create different and specific offers always privileging our habit of eating and drinking. You know what they say: When in Porto, do like the Portuenses!
WORRIED ABOUT THE HILLS AND HOW MUCH YOU WILL WALK?
The geography of Porto city Centre allows you to discover the city in this ancient way – by foot! Knowing this, we carefully design our walking tours to avoid going up and down, however if you have any question, please don’t hesitate asking us!
THEMATIC WALKING TOURS
All our three ways of Porto Walking Tour were design for you to walk around easily and at the same time to better interact with the places and the people of this “Invicta City”. An historical walking tour is the perfect choice for the first day in Porto!
You’ll be exploring the city center of Porto with one of our local storytelling guides who will guide you through the narrow streets of Porto, while giving you all the facts, stories and legends of the city, as well as the best insights on why we love living here.
Should you choose our Porto Food Tour or our Porto Bites and Sights, we’ll take you to local places off the beaten path to try their specialties and perhaps challenging you to try our famous “Tripes”!? but not forgetting to have a fantastic Port tasting Porto – considered a juice of the Gods. If your desire is to have a great wine tasting Porto experience, just let us know and we will prepare it for you.
Any of these guided walking tour Porto will take place in the Centre of the city, which will allow you to see the great architecture of this historical UNESCO site in a more detailed way.
None of them are a Porto free walking tour but it will definitely be worth it being in a smaller and non-crowed group. Join us and get to know Porto from the local’s perspective. Walk the same streets that helped shape what Portugal has become and learn what it truly means to be a “Tripeiro”. If your idea does not match our offer, we can customize a Tour just for you, including private or public Transport Porto if necessary!
We are tripeiros, Carago!
