Nico

4/5
Lia is a very open-minded person. She knows how to combine the interests of her fellow travelers appropriately. As a tour guide, Lia is very well prepared and seeks out varied activities for the trip that make everyone feel included. Nevertheless, the trip is not overplanned and there is the necessary flexibility for a trip that should also offer relaxation.

Porto

Day 1-2
On our first day, after checking in our beautiful apartment, we will explore Porto by strolling through the streets, going to the famous double-decked bridge and check out the quarter of Ribeira. The natural stone houses with red roof tiles were crumbling away but today the waterside neighbourhood of Ribeira has been beautifully restored. Let`s enjoy our first authentic dinner in a local restaurant.

We will be picked up in the city to go on a wine tasting tour and get to know different vineries in the Douro Valley.

The car will take us back to the city in the late afternoon.

Last day and last breakfast together, before checking out of our cozy apartment. Depending on your further travel plans and agenda, you can spend the day as you like. Explore the city individually, take a boat trip, go back to your favorite spots or cafes. I'm sure we'll catch up somewhere in the world again.
