Two tales of the same city in a tuk-tuk
Join me on my unique Tuk-Tuk Porto route for an out of the ordinary experience. It's a journey throughout the historic center of Porto. Through narrow streets in old neighborhoods, and all the way to Vila Nova de Gaia Portugal where we stop at the awe-inspiring viewpoint of Serra do Pilar to observe and photograph the incredible landscape between the two banks of the Douro River. We will then enjoy the beautiful and romantic right bank to Foz do Douro, where we will visit the historic quarter of Foz Velha, where today, a small English community continues to live. On the way back, we will take another break in the most western part of the city next to the Douro bar, to observe the Farol de Felgueiras. This experience accommodates up to the three guests, but don't worry; you don't need to fill all the spots. If you would like your own private booking, need another date/time, or have any questions or concerns about my Tuk-Tuk Porto Experience, please contact me directly. Other things to note It's important to bring a camera. The whole route will be done in a tuk-tuk, and there will be opportunities for some stops.
Cruising the Douro with the fisherman
My plan is to welcome you at Marina do Freixo where you will be offered a welcome drink (port wine/sparkling wine) together with some almonds (local product). From here we will begin our navigation always in a very relaxed and safe pace. You will see the Palacio de Freixo, just next to the marina. We then cruise downstream the river where you will see the 6 bridges that connect Porto to Gaia. The first metal bridge that you will see is the one designed by Gustav Eiffel (Maria Pia Bridge), followed by Infante Bridge and the landmark of the city, D.Luis I bridge, designed by Teofille Sierig. Right after the bridge you will admire another Unesco world heritage site since 1996, Ribeira and Gaia riverside, where the port wine cellars are located. Further downstream you will see the very pitoresque fisherman village, S.Pedro da Afurada, the Natural reserve of Cabedelo and the very charming Foz Velha. We will keek up our route towards the Atlantic Ocean where in some parts of the day you can see the local fisherman on their way to the ocean, to start or finish their working day. Sometimes we can even see some fisherman fishing next to the river mouth. The most special part of the day to see the river mouth, Foz, is at sunset, in my personal opinion. During the navigation I totally recommend you to have your cameras ready because there will be fantastic photo opportunities. This experience takes around 2 hours and in this time span you will learn and enjoy this beautiful region that attracts thousands of people year after year. Join me and see Porto and the Douro River in a unique way! Other things to note Since we will be sailing towards the ocean, it is advisable to bring a light jacket or cardigan as it usually gets a little cooler by the sea.

Guided visit to Quinta da Roêda, Croft Port Wines, and tastings.

An 1 hour relaxing private boat ride on the Douro river will take people to see the slopes of the hills full of vineyards from a bottom perspective. A glass of Port will be served and delicacies. And lunch, in a typical restaurant of the region, where we eat the same as the workers who go there, makes us feel one of them, someone who wants to share their habits and feel what it is to be Portuguese in the Douro It is worth noting that in 2001 Unesco classified it as a World Heritage Site. After lunch people head to Quinta da Foz, a small Douro table wine producer in Casal de Loivos, a small village 500 meters altitude where all can have a breathtaking bird´s eye view to the valley and river. Without any rush people will have an explanatory guided tour, 3 wines tasting, as well as olive oil tasting, enjoying the wonders of life seated on a big balcony with the "paradise" under their eyes.

The only night Bridge Climb in Europe
We will just do what a few brave people from Porto did for 45 years: enjoy an amazing night view in the most exclusive spot of the city! The only thing that was added is safety and confort... I will guarantee you exclusive access to the Arrábida Bridge's Arch; since I'm the guy who has the key to the arch (yes, at night I'm the only guide visiting it!), this is a unique and exclusive experience. We'll go up 262 steps to reach the summit of the Arrábida Bridge's Arch, where a quiet viewpoint lays just under one of the busiest bridges in Portugal. Up there, we'll have time to enjoy the view with a delicious surprise, and to celebrate the conquer of this national monument. In fact, this spot was occupied over the years by intrepid youngsters from Porto... the difference now is that we have steps, a handrail, two steel cables and an harness attached to it. This makes the experience suitable for everyone that can go up and down stairs, even if they have vertigo :) There will be plenty of time for sharing stories about the bridge and taking pictures. No one can believe it! Other things to note If you wish, bring your camera, mobile phone and/or go-pro.
