Free Walking Tour of Porto

At the chosen time you'll meet your guide at the Garrett Monument, in front of the Town Hall.  From this central point on Avenida dos Aliados you'll begin your free walking tour of the city.

During the next two-and-a-half-hours, you will discover the top attractions and most emblematic neighbourhoods of Porto. We'll pass by the Clerigos Church and its beautiful Bell Tower, the highest in Portugal, and admire great panoramic views of the city from its observation deck.

Walk to the University of Porto to discover if the stories that link it to the Harry Potter books and films are true, and then admire the stately San Bento railway station, famous for being decorated with over 20,000 tiles that narrate the history of Portugal.

Explore Batalha neighbourhood and visit the striking “Sé do Porto”, the Porto Cathedral. The best of the tour is saved till last when you will stroll along the banks of the river and marvel at its colourful houses. You will love this part of Porto, famous for its six bridges.
