Your private tour begins at Porto Se Cathedral, where you’ll greet your guide and discover why the grand, Gothic landmark, built in the 12th century, represents liberty and power.
As you stroll through Porto’s cobbled streets, your history teacher guide transports you back to 1809, when French and British armies were battling to occupy Porto in the First and Second Battle of Porto. As you walk along the banks of the Douro River, visit historic landmarks looted by Napoleon’s soldiers and learn about Porto’s cultural traditions.
See, too, popular Porto attractions such as Torre & Igreja dos Clerigos and Carmo Convent (Igreja do Carmo), both of which played a significant role in Porto’s history. Entrance tickets to all landmarks are included.
After three hours of exploration, bid your guide farewell near your original departure point in central Porto.
