What you'll do

Join me in this tour about the Contemporary Porto. Let’s find out why local people and tourists love this city. Maybe will you become one of them, like me? This charming and historic city has changed a lot along the last two decades. I’m eager to show you the main changes while we stroll around visiting some sightseeing spots in downtown and also traditional neighborhoods not so touristy. The goal is to discover not only how those changes are affecting the city but also how Porto can affect each of us, personally. To do it, let’s mix the walking tour with some breaks, when I will give you some resources to awake your senses: a lunette and a travel journal and some simple tasks will help us to discover Porto in a different and enjoyable way. The tour is available in Portuguese or English. Let me know if you have any doubts.
