What will you find in this tour?

Your stay in Porto isn’t complete if you haven’t visited the other side of Douro river, where Vila Nova de Gaia stands majestically. This town is full of ancient wineries and it’s defined by Dom Luís I Bridge and topped by the great Serra do Pilar monastery-fortress.

During our Tour of Gaia we will show you the history of this town, which gives its name to the country along with Porto. We will cross Dom Luís I Bridge upper part, which has superb views, get to Serra do Pilar and Jardim do Morro and descend through the beautiful viewpoints until we reach the emblematic boardwalk of Gaia. There we will stroll among wineries and Rabelo boats as we tell countless stories about wine and get a taste for what’s coming next.

We will visit one of Porto’s famous wineries and do both a guided tour inside and taste two different Porto wines.

After trying the wine we will resume our tour in order to know Gaia’s art legacy, from the great baroque architect Nasoni to one of the most famous street art exhibitions in Portugal: Bordalo II Half Rabbit. We will also visit Beira Río traditional market and show you the relationship between Gaia and the greatest Portuguese love stories.

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.
