This pack consists of a 6-hour tour of the city of Porto
10 a.m – This tour starts next to Café da Porta do Olival, the oldest café in Porto. (Coffee break ).
This is a special tuk-tuk porto experience that will combine a passage through the historic centre of Porto, through the narrow streets of the old quarters. Our first stop it will be at S. Bento railway station and then we will walk through the streets of Terreiro and the Sé neighborhood.
12. a.m. – [Stop at Lello & Irmão Bookstore. Famous bookstore, considered the third most beautiful in the world. It inspired J.K. Rowlins to write the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001).] We are very sorry, given the circumstances of COVID – 19, it will not be possible to visit the bookstore during our tour.
To compensate, we will replace it with another (surprise) point of interest of the city.
1p.m. – Stop for lunch (1h/1h30).
2. or 2:30p.m. – We will then enjoy the beautiful and romantic right bank of the river to Foz, where we will visit the historic district of Foz Velha, which to this day lives a small English community. We continue the tour, through the avenue Brazil, Montevideo, until Matosinhos, land of fishermen.
We return to the city centre, without stopping, to observe the Douro bar, the Foz (Felgueiras Lighthouse).
Along the way, we will take another break at a little-known viewpoint to observe the estuary of the Douro River, where more than 500 years ago, a small fishing community lived, which built one of the oldest chapels in the city, which would serve as a “lighthouse” for fishermen’s boats to enter the fearsome Douro bar.
From here, we continue to the other side of the river, crossing the famous bridge, Luis I (XIX century). We will stop at the viewpoint of Serra do Pilar, in Vila Nova de Gaia, to observe and photograph an incredible landscape on both banks of the Douro River.
Still in Vila Nova de Gaia, we will take a tour around the Porto Wine cellars to the left bank of the Douro to Afurada, a small fishing community.
