What you can expect

Within the city of Porto there are highlights worth seeing and hidden gems ready to be discovered, and thanks to the help of a friendly local, you and your family can now enjoy the best the city has to offer.

Ready for a one-of-a-kind highlight? Visit the Bank of materials, a unique tile vault that contains all the tiles you can spot around the city. Here you can appreciate more up close these local masterpieces and through the amazing storytelling skills of your new local friend, your kids will enjoy the stories behind the ‘azulejos’ and why they decorate the city of Porto.

Uncover hidden gems along the way like the cute little surprise you can find between two churches at the Carlos Alberto square. Or the magical vibes at Lion’s fountain, also known as the ‘Gryffindor fountain’ by Harry Potter fans. Porto was an amazing source of inspiration for J.K. Rowling and your kids & you can find the magical resemblance throughout your private experience.

A highlights tour in Porto has to include its precious landmark, Clerigos Tower. But not only that, the area surrounding this must-see is equally interesting and worth exploring. See the city walls, a cute garden with olive trees and spot the old city’s prison. In this area you can also find more magical inspiration when you discover the ‘Lello bookstore’, a place loved by the local kids! Want to be part of a local tradition? Take a look at the wax shop right in front the church and be surprised by what the locals “mold” here as an offering.
Feeling hungry? Take a refreshing break at a local bakery, enjoy a cup of coffee and for the kids a tasty pasteis de nata! Follow the beat of the ‘heart of the city’ in Avenida dos Aliados and surround yourself with beautiful baroque buildings & other architectural styles where even a Mcdonald's is featured in an Art Deco building. Or how about the most beautiful train station in town? See the history of the city through its tiles at Sao Bento station.

Cross the Luis Dom I bridge and step into Gaia where you will find a nice garden & park where the kids can play around while you chat with your new local friend. They will give you personalized recommendations for you and your family to finish off this incredible day. So just remember, the only thing you have to do to see the best the city has to offer is to pick your favorite local and they will create a unique tour around your family’s interests.
