Free Tour of Porto

The original FREE walking tour of Porto's most visited attractions with a local guide

ABOUT THE Free Tour of Porto

Housing many of Porto’s major landmarks, the stunning historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On this 3-hour walking tour, your local expert guide will help you to tick off many of Porto’s must-see sites, such as the iconic Dom Luis bridge and the world-famous Lello bookstore, and you will also enjoy some truly stunning panoramic views.

 

Your Porto FREE Tour meets every day at the Bishop António Ferreira Gomes, opposite Clérigos Tower. 

 

One of Europe’s most beautiful city centers

You’ll be amazed by the stunning Porto city center, and won’t be at all surprised to learn of its status as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Starting at the iconic Clérigos Church with its 75.6 meter tower, you’ll want to keep your cameras at the ready as your expert local guide leads you past the beloved Porto Cathedral, the amazing tiles of the renowned São Bento station, and past the 14th century city walls. You’ll even get a chance to see the world-famous Lello bookstore and hear how its connection to Harry Potter has made it one of the most popular bookstores on the planet today.

The sites and tastes of the Douro River

As you make your way through the twisting ancient streets and out of the city center, you’ll be faced with amazing panoramic views, and will encounter the impressive Douro River. Not only does the river host the iconic Dom Luís I bridge (built by Eiffel’s protégé Seyrig), it’s also the home to Porto’s famed Port wine industry.
