Up we go to the most beautiful café J.K. Rowling ever wrote, the Majestic, discovering her adventures and inspirations in Porto. Down to the Atlantic Palace, we'll meet some of the heroes from Porto, as Harry isn’t the only hero featured in this tour. We continue to the Liberty Square exploring the mythical origins the fantastic beast of Porto. The next stop is the Justice Palace, to meet the man behind the inspiration for the founder of House Slytherin. Going on to the University of Porto, let’s discover the Horcruxes that keep the Portuguese soul immortal through the centuries. The experience ends at the world’s most beautiful bookshop, Livraria Lello, to unveil the spells behind magical numbers and its connection with the saga (yes, even after the polemic from 2020!).

I'm a muggle-born Brazilian, proud Ravenclaw, currently living in Porto where I’m studying Communication Sciences at the University of Porto. When I arrived in here, I fell in love so much with the city that I became a local guide! Since 2019 I've been introducing this beautiful city to both wizards and muggles alike in partnership with TakePorto, the number #1 free walking tour in Porto (check my reviews in its TripAdvisor page!). I stopped counting how many times I read Harry Potter books after the 20th reading, so I had no choice but to create a magical tour to connect the saga, J.K. Rowling’s adventures in the magical city of Porto with Portugal’s rich and ancient history.

Very interesting and thought provoking. The connection of the HP saga sheds new light onto Porto and Portugal's history, a perspective previously unknown to me. I recommend the tour to tourists and also locals!

Es una buena manera de conocer más sobre la ciudad de Oporto asociándolo a el mundo de Harry Potter. Si eres un fan de la saga de Harry Potter y sus mundos no puedes perdertela.

Una experiencia mágica , se la recomendaría a toda persona que visitase Oporto, a eso le sumas lo magnífico narrador que es Vinicius ,y es el doble de entretenida , se me pasó volando el tiempo. A parte de los puntos de la ciudad que tienen que ver con harry Potter , te explica y te habla sobre otras cosas emblemáticas de la ciudad . A que esperas para descubrirlas!!!

Yesterday we went on the Harry Potter tour with Vinicius. The experience exceeded our expectations! We learned a lot not only about Harry Potter in Porto, but also about the history of the Portugal itself. Vinicius has a gift for engaging people in the conversation - he asked a lot of questions and made sure that everyone is feeling good. After the trip he sent us the notes about places we should visit and restaurants that were mentioned during the trip. We had a lot of fun and we would definitely recommend doing this experience while in Porto.

Incredible experience, Vinny is a wonderful guide with so much to offer about Porto’s history and Harry Potter. He is very kind and did a wonderful job combining the themes of HP with Porto’s history. He gave great recommendations and is very friendly. Highly recommend this tour!!
