A bit of a rough tour for our group. Luis is clearly knowledgable but we struggled to weave the threads of his commentary together. He also assumed a sophisticated starting point for all members of our group but that wasn’t the case. Simply put we felt there was too much lecturing and not enough context. This is in stark contrast to our Intro to Lisbon tour the week prior.
Francisco is a terrific is obvious he loves Porto, Portugal, and is extremely proud to share its history
Ricardo is a wonderful and informative guide who we found very interesting and most importantly fun to be with. His love of the architecture and history of Porto as well as Portugal shines through. Ricardo went out of his way to make sure we had a great tour and a great experience in his city and he went above and beyond our expectations in so many ways for us.
