We had a fantastic time with Susana as she gave us our first introduction to Porto on our very first day in Portugal, she was knowledgeable, friendly, and fun! Highly recommend this tour!
Context tour guides never disappoint and Jelena was no exception. She was absolutely incredible - so knowledgeable (she has a PhD in architecture and city museums) but also so warm and engaging. She had prepared materials to point out Portuguese history, geography, culture and politics at every stop. She made a special effort to engage my 16yo son with fun challenges that he enjoyed and appreciated. She even treated us to some delicious pasteis at the best bakery in town - above and beyond! We had the most amazing introduction to the beautiful city of Porto and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide - thank you Jelena!
Ricardo was excellent, very knowledgeable, well prepared and a delight to speak to. Very informative.
