What will you find in this free tour?

In this initiative tour we will go into the deep and sometimes unknown history of Portugal. Its birth, the Reconquest and the Carnation Revolution will make us feel the personality of Porto and its citizens through the streets and monuments.

Our Free Walking Tour Porto is the perfect choice if you want to tune in with this colourful city. From the busy and bohemian Galerías de París, a meeting point for youngsters, to the calmness of the bookstore that inspired J. K. Rowling to write the famous adventures of Harry Potter. That’s Porto, a city which encloses itself inside its Roman walls but, at the same time, it opens itself to the world through the Douro river and elevates to the sky from the bell towers of its countless churches. It’s also a city of courageous merchants who sell a worldwide famous wine, of libertarian academics who used to conspire in cafes, of people who moved away to come back again and leave an unforgettable legacy in the ancient Roman Portus Cale, which later would be devastated by Europe’s longest dictatorship.

Porto is a city that will steal your heart, sometimes even literally. Even though Lisbon is the capital city, where the body of Pedro IV lies, it’s in Porto’s Lapa church where his heart ―the heart of their most beloved king, is buried. Join 1·2·Tours’ Free Walking Tour Porto and come with us to discover, hand by hand with our guides, one of the most interesting and most beautiful cities in Europe.

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.
