What you'll do

Lumos!

This wizard will fly you through Porto using pre-recorded videos + images starting in the beautiful train station of São Bento, to discover why train stations are so important for J.K. and Harry Potter. Up we go to the most beautiful café J.K. Rowling ever wrote, the Majestic, discovering her adventures and inspirations in Porto. Up next, the Atlantic Palace, as Harry isn’t the only hero featured in this tour, so let’s meet local heroes. We continue to the Liberty Square exploring the mythical origins the fantastic beast of Porto. The next stop is the Justice Palace, to meet the man behind the inspiration for the founder of House Slytherin. Going on to the University of Porto, let’s discover the Horcruxes that keep the Portuguese soul immortal through the centuries. The experience ends at the world’s most beautiful bookshop, Livraria Lello, to unveil the spells behind magical numbers and its connection with the saga (yes, even after the polemic from 2020!).

There will be curiosities about Porto and a quiz to test your Potter knowledge with a reward, great for team-building!

A 1-hour version of the experience is available for private bookings.

Available in English, Spanish and Portuguese. The price is per person attending. Feel free to contact for further questions/private groups.

I'm a muggle-born Brazilian, proud Ravenclaw, currently living in Porto where I’m studying Communication Sciences at the University of Porto. When I arrived in here, I fell in love so much with the city that I became a local guide! Since 2019 I've been introducing this beautiful city to both wizards and muggles alike in partnership with TakePorto, the number #1 free walking tour in Porto (check my reviews in its TripAdvisor page!). I stopped counting how many times I read Harry Potter books after the 20th reading, so I had no choice but to create a magical tour to connect the saga, J.K. Rowling’s adventures in the magical city of Porto with Portugal’s rich and ancient history.

I had such a fun time with Vinicius!! It was great to see streets and landmarks of Porto while learning very interesting facts of the city’s history that undoubtedly correlate to the Wizarding World and Joe Rowling’s personal story. We laughed a lot and spoke easy, like old friends. As a Harry fan since the age of 9 and as a Portuguese American, I loved this experience. Loved the quiz at the end!

Hice caso de dos amigos que conocían el tour y ha sido un verdadero viaje. Nunca pensé que una experiencia on line pudiera ser tan completa. Vinicíus muy atento y dominando español con soltura. Lo recimiendo con total seguridad. Obrigado!!

Foi uma experiência muito engraçada, gostei particularmente de ter participado num grupo com as minhas amigas, onde existiu grande familiaridade, ambiente leve e descontraído. Definitivamente, recomendo!

Super recomendado para aqueles que são fãs do Harry Potter ou não. É perceptível o cuidado que o Vinícius teve para produzir esta experiência de qualidade. Achei bem interessante a conexão feita com a cidade e o filme. Uma experiência leve, divertida. (Ri bastante). Conto com o dia para conhecer a cidade presencialmente.
