This tour consists of my Walking Tour PLUS ... ALL THE HIGHLIGHTS and ATTRACTIONS outside the historical center of Porto. And ... my recommendation of a place to try our authentic food, driven comfortably around Porto. The morning part of the tour will be spent exploring Porto's World Heritage Site. In the afternoon I'll drive you to discover the "other side" of Porto. Being located only 5 Kms / 3,5 miles from the ocean provides Porto with a natural scenic landscape that'll definitely color this city tour. The gray of Porto's buildings will now contrast with the blue from the ocean and the green of our parks. The first "outside" area to visit will be BOAVISTA. Today one of the fancy places to live in Porto, is in fact a mix between old mansions, new office buildings and hotels, punctuated by modern architecture like the iconic CONCERT HALL MUSIC building or the MODERN ART MUSEUM. Boavista extends all the way to the ocean, surrounded by beautiful promenades, connecting Porto with the fishing city of MATOSINHOS. Driving from the MOUTH OF THE DOURO RIVER, and passing by the old British district, we'll end across the river, in GAIA. Besides the AMAZING VIEWS of Porto that will be carved in your memory, this is the place where all Port Wine is stored. Aging slowly and quietly, inside massive old warehouses, this is the essence and secret behind Port. Your tour will end with a toast in a PORT WINE LODGE.
