ABOUT THE 2-hour Porto Highlights Private Tour

This 2-hour private tour is the perfect introduction to Porto and a great way to orientate yourself in the city. Your local private tour guide will take you to must-see spots such as Clerigos Tower, the Cathedral, Dom Luis I Bridge and much more!


Explore Porto’s historic center and look out onto the Douro River

Porto’s historic center was given UNESCO World Heritage status in 1996 and is home to many beautiful monuments and buildings. Crane your neck up at the 75.6 meter Clérigos Tower, marvel at the impressively tiled São Bento station and discover the world famous Lello bookstore and its connection to Harry Potter.

Your private tour will then take you up to an amazing viewpoint over the Douro River - see the iconic Dom Luís I Bridge (built by Eiffel’s protégé Seyrig) and spot the Port wine cellars lining the riverbank.

See Porto up-close

If you and your family or friends are popping into Porto for a quick trip then make the most of your stay by booking a private tour that fits your schedule!

This private tour will show you Porto as it was meant to be seen - walking through hidden alleyways and stopping to take in the stunning views. Your local expert guide will not only help you to tick off many of Porto’s must-see sites but reveal the interesting stories behind the iconic locations.
