What you can expect

Want to experience Porto like a local? Come with me and I'll show you the best of my city while discovering all the corners, the secrets and the magic of my city!

Being a writer and architect student, it's easy for me to lead you through an adventure that could end at the top of an old wall with a romantic story or in deep underground tunnels full of mystery & secrets.

With a mix of the city's history, the local landscape & some delicious food along the way, you'll see how the beautiful story of Porto unfolds in front of your eyes. Explore places like the Sao Bento station, the Majestic Cafe, the Bolhão Market, and more, where the local vibe is truly present!

I'll also show you spots only known by the locals, like a bakery where you'll enjoy a tasty treat. Throughout the whole experience, I'll help you feel like a local. I'll show you some of our local traditions, like a uniform tradition that is simply magical.
