Porto, Portugal: Historical Walking Tour

I absolutely loved Porto in Portugal. It was a treat to take pictures of this spectacular city. The colourful buildings and the amazing display of the tiles were something to look for. And the pavements were even more beautiful. The city has an amazing vibe to it and anyone, I mean anyone can fall in love with this city.

I strongly believe that there is no other way to explore a city than by walking around or taking some of the walking tours. And hence, I took a 3 hours walking tour to cover most of the important landmarks within the city centre.

The walking tour was organised by ‘Living tours Viagens e Turisma Lda‘ (+351228320992) tour agency and the cost of the tour was 12 Euros. I booked the tour through Viator website or one can just walk into their office which is also the starting point of the walk and book it.
