Your magical in-person experience starts at the beautiful train station of São Bento, to discover why train stations are so important for J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter. 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!).

There will be curiosities about Porto and a quiz to test your knowledge with a special prize!

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.

A experiência foi excelente, recomendo vivamente esta visita. Vinícius para além de ser um óptimo comunicador consegue aliar, de forma encantadora e encantatória, a jornada heroíca/épica de Harry Potter com a história da Cidade do Porto. O seu profundo conhecimento sobre ambos os temas é acompanhado por uma extrema simpatia que torna esta experiência absolutamente inesquecível. Sem sombra de dúvidas, o melhor guia que conheci! Parabéns e obrigada!

Vini has done a great deal of research on JK Rowling, Harry Potter and Portugal and we learned a lot from his tour. He was organized, engaging and receptive of our questions and comments. Even if you’re not a HP geek, you’ll still appreciate the information he shares about the city. Great job, Vini.

Highly recommended tour! Vini combines Portuguese history and explains symbols found in Harry Potter in a very engaging way. We were thoroughly entertained and enlightened with his explanations and storytelling. The tour was engaging and went at a great pace.

We attended the visit with our grand daughter who does not understand much English, Vinicius gave us time to translate his presentation into French. He managed to interest Nora by asking her questions about Harry Potter’s books. The presentation was very lively, linked to Mrs Rawling’s life in Porto. We also had some interesting elements about the history of Portugal . Congratulations and thank you Vinicius

Mi novia y yo hicimos este tour porque nos gusta mucho Harry Potter, ¡lo que no esperábamos es que nos gustara mucho más después de hacer este tour! Vini es espectacular: como lo vive, como lo transmite, como lo prepara...da gusto. Parece raro estando en oporto recomendar este tour pero sin duda es una experiencia inolvidable que estamos super felices de haber podido vivir. Recomendado 100% para todas las edades.
