What will you find in this tour?

Immerse yourself in the culture of this country on a tour specially designed for it: we will go through the emblematic Rua das Flores to reach the beautiful Ribeira, and we will cross the iconic Luis I Bridge to get into Vila Nova de Gaia, where we will taste three Port wines together with some of the culinary delights from Portugal as we enjoy a fado concert by a professional fadista.

In our Portuguese Culture tour, we will talk about everything that refers to the culture of the Portuguese country, from its art, its music and its tiles, to its idiosyncrasies and stereotypes, discovering what the people of Porto think of themselves and the rest of the country. We will also learn about the traditional trades and crafts, as well as the deep relationship of the Portuguese with their country: its rivers, its fields, and the sea. Thus, we will see the traces that centuries of seafaring, mercantile, exploring and fishing traditions left in Porto, in the Douro and in Gaia.

As a climax to our visit, we will stop talking about the Portuguese culture to start experiencing it for ourselves. We will taste some Porto’s wine, savouring its different styles; we will enjoy its gastronomy, savouring the wide variety of cheese offered by the different regions of Portugal; and we will admire and overwhelm ourselves with an authentic and touching fado, which will transmit all the strength, melancholy and sausade of Portugal.

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.

Pablo Tuñón Laguna

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.

Paula RA

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.

Andrea Solanas

Guillermo, medieval tour: excellent guide, everything super well explained, dynamic. He advises you about the city, recommendations of cheap and worthwhile places, advice from local people is appreciated.

Marco Antonio

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.

I joined a free walking tour of this company in Porto. Sandra was the best fwt guide I have ever met. She told us everything about the city. She was so kind and friendly. If I come back to Porto, I will join her another tour

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.
