Catia & David
I'm the Co-founder of C&D Porto Local Tours in Porto. I studied tourism and entertainment from 2006 to 2009. I went to travel and work around Spain in Hotels and Resorts, but i came back to Porto in 2013 because i missed my family and city. I started to work as a guide (History, food and wine) since then and i love it. Now together with AIRBNB i want to provide a quality experience with a local feeling.
4 Port Wines (Rose, White Tawny and Ruby LBV)
The train station "São Bento" is considered to be one of the most beautiful train stations in the world thanks to more than 20 thousand tiles decorating the walls telling us stories about the country. Porto's Cathedral is from the XII century. We walk around admiring the view points from there. Barredo's neighborhood is the oldest area, where we will walk the narrow streets until we reach the Port Wine houses across the river.
Legal age to drink in Portugal is 18 years old. The tour is limited to 10 participants, but for bigger private groups please contact us.
