We had a great tour with Ricardo. His enthusiasm about Porto's history was infectious. It was so interesting to learn about all the different architects involved in the various attempts to do city planning in Porto. Ricardo had books of historical photos and maps to illustrate his points. We went way over our 3 hours. It was a lot of fun.
Ricardo was a joy to have as our expert guide on Porto’s religious, political and mercantile history through the expression of it’s architecture. Well stories at a fast pace with perfect inflection of points re-iterated to bring the whole together. Surprise diversions included a walk into a classical guitar shop to explain the history of the ukulele; and a coffee break to experience the influence of Brazil on Porto’s food scene. Would highly recommend Ricardo Manuel as a guide to any friend visiting Porto.
The tour and explanations were great, but we were tired at the end of the tour and we are accustomed to a lot of walking (I run every day). Maybe another break should be incorporated.
