What will you find in this free tour?

In this Dark Porto Free Tour, we will explore some of the most unknown corners of Porto and reveal its darkest stories: murders, executions, desecrations, massacres that will give us goose bumps as we tour a city while night is falling.

We will also visit some of the most iconic places in Porto, such as the Clerigos Tower and the Sao Bento Station. But, we will not repeat what you have already heard on so many other occasions. In this tour we will talk about its mysteries, about everything that is not seen, told, or commonly known. Likewise, the legends of Porto will have a special place in our tour, and in this way we will learn why the people of Porto are called tripeiros, where the name of Miragaia neighbourhood comes from, or what happened to the fortune of the richest man in Porto.

Discover the fascinating hidden story of the Jewish community that lived in secret for centuries in its former ghetto, and find out the truth about the enigmatic Armenian community that brought the relics of Saint Pantaleon to the city. Join our tour to discover the mysteries of Porto told through its protagonists: prisoners, ghosts, poisoners, prostitutes and bandits from bygone ages whose names are still whispered in the alleys of Porto.

I was in Porto and came across the free tour by chance. I liked it so much that I also signed up for the medieval one and the visit to the wineries (one of the best investments of my life). I would never know so much about Porto and Portugal if it weren't for Paloma. I have traveled quite a bit and Paloma's personal stamp on her work makes her passion for the city she loves so contagious. His memory and explanations are simply prodigious. If you go to Porto, do not hesitate to try to visit the city with Paloma. You will not regret it.

Ana has been a fantastic guide, she has discovered the hidden Porto for me, telling the stories through its streets and monuments. I have loved his way of maintaining attention and tension at all times, a very good guide, he knows his tour very well and is very pleasant to listen to. He is definitely a tour and guide I would have no hesitation in recommending.

Great. Both the city tour in the morning with Guillermo, and the medieval Porto tour in the afternoon with Paloma, were very interesting. Very well explained and very entertaining. Highly recommended to get to know Porto and its history. Guillermo and Paloma, in addition, are very nice.

Wonderful tour that Paloma has given us in Porto, one of the best free tours I have done so far, the passion is undeniable, and only that is to be thanked but it also accompanies it with humor, knowledge and closeness, in addition to the didactic . My pleasure.

Aníbal González-Arintero Berciano

On Thursday we did the Porto free tour with Paloma, a machine (more guides like Paloma when you arrive in a city for the first time, please).
In the afternoon we repeated the "medieval" with her and on Friday we went to Gaia with Rocío, very nice.
We also met Guillermo, a crack.
Good luck to everyone and a hug, Aníbal and Sergio.
