WHY DOWNTOWN PORTO AND RIBEIRA?

We chose these two districts because of their strong identity within the city and their unique atmospheres, delicious food, famous wine, and interesting culture.

We'll step back in time to explore the city's 18th, 19th and 20th century areas as well as the medieval area, classified by UNESCO.

Through the narrow streets of the Ribeira neighborhood, we will find the magnificent scenes of the Douro River crossed by the famous iron Dom Luís I Bridge.

The booking fee that you have to pay is up to our ticket provider and we can't change it. All our clients need to pay for it upon booking. The booking fee charged contributes to the cost of the ticketing system to provide an excellent service to our customers.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
