We had Aurea as a guide, she told us about the history of Porto and the most important buildings. Porto pleasantly surprised us and Aurea showed us all nice places. The electric tuk-tuk was also a success. It was very nice not to have to hear or smell a roaring engine and we were an 'Eye-catcher'. We also had a nice chat and Aurea also told us where we could eat and drink in Porto and the surrounding area. Thank you Aurea! So worth repeating, when our daughter comes along next x!

Very good welcome with a French-speaking guide. Hugo makes you a visit of Porto with small onions in picturesque and unusual places. We highly recommend.
