What to do in Porto with children?


Travelling doesn't have to be a challenge when you have kids. There are many answers for the question "What to do with kids in Porto".

At 1-2-Tours, we've thought about families planning a visit to Porto and have put together some alternative plans for exploring the city. If you are travelling with young children or teenagers, a fantastic idea is to visit the Discovery Museum. This place offers visitors a very interactive tour in which children are the absolute protagonists, and the tour time averages just over an hour. Walking among elephants and monkeys, jungle and boat simulations will delight not only the little ones.

The schedule of activities is adjusted so that they can be combined with other unforgettable experiences, such as the Free Walking Tour Porto or the trip to Guimarães. Which can be another great option for spending time with children.

Guimarães is a small town located north of Porto, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It's a must-see destination, and the castle in Guimarães is perfectly suited for young audiences. A photo with the helmet and sword in the locker is a must for those who visit Porto with children and decide to do this little outing.

Similarly, walking around the city is very accessible for young people as it is full of events and street performers, especially Rua Santa Catarina and Rua das Flores. Both streets are pedestrian-only, allowing families with children to stroll freely.

Our Porto Free Walking Tour is perfectly designed, allowing you to bypass the natural and architectural urban barriers that make walking with a baby pram difficult.

Do not wait any longer and enjoy Porto with us, book one of our free walking tours and let our guides guide you.
