What you'll do

Join me on my unique Tuk-Tuk Porto route for an out of the ordinary experience.

It's a journey throughout the historic center of Porto. Through narrow streets in old neighborhoods, and all the way to Vila Nova de Gaia Portugal where we stop at the awe-inspiring viewpoint of Serra do Pilar to observe and photograph the incredible landscape between the two banks of the Douro River.

We will then enjoy the beautiful and romantic right bank to Foz do Douro, where we will visit the historic quarter of Foz Velha, where today, a small English community continues to live.

On the way back, we will take another break in the most western part of the city next to the Douro bar, to observe the Farol de Felgueiras.

This experience accommodates up to the three guests, but don't worry; you don't need to fill all the spots.

If you would like your own private booking, need another date/time, or have any questions or concerns about my Tuk-Tuk Porto Experience, please contact me directly.
Other things to note
It's important to bring a camera. The whole route will be done in a tuk-tuk, and there will be opportunities for some stops.

Hello, my name is Ricardo!
I was born and raised in Porto, so I'm a real 'tripeiro.'
I lived in cities like London, Paris, later Lisbon, and seven years ago, I returned to Porto, my hometown!
I am passionate about its history, culture, and gastronomy.
I have a degree in Fine Arts, so in addition to being a tourist guide, I am also an artist.
I will show you a selection of the main points of interest in the city, the narrow streets of the old districts, and we will pause briefly at a special viewpoint and then follow the riverbank to the sea.

Where you'll be

The meeting place is special, it is the oldest part of the city, the Pena Ventosa hill, where the Cathedral was built in the 12th century. The first buildings of the city were built around this fortified building, more than 800 years ago, limited by the Cerca Velha or Primitive Wall. At the access to the Sé (Cathedral), there is a statue in honor of Vímara Peres, a military nobleman, who was given the power to settle the region in the year 868 AD.

Ricardo was very nice and knowledgeable about Porto. He gave great recommendations for food, exhibits and monuments to visit after our tour. If you’ve just arrived and are looking for a quick way to orient yourself and see the city, this is a great option.

We booked this tour kind of last minute as we were not sure if we were going to be tired or up for a tour. Took the train in from Lisbon and booked while enroute to Porto. So glad we did! The tour takes you all around the city to the main attractions and really gives you a either different perspective if you've been walking around for a day or so or gives you a nice first look at the city. Also, lots of restaurant recommendations for either dinner, pastries or coffee. I definitely suggest booking this upon arrival in Porto!!

Ricardo is an amazing guide. We asked for a French guided tour (which he speaks fluently) but he also provides the tour in other langages . Ricardo is really nice amd cool. Took time to show us many amazing places, secret streets where the usual hop on hop off bus tour cannot access. I highly recommend such a tour to go and dis or rediscover the city . 5 star!!!! Si vous rechercher une belle experience de tour privée en tuk-tuk , n’hésitez plus, Ricardo est votre homme! Super tour guidé de la ville que je recommande chaleureusement.

Une très belle expérience à bord du Tuk tuk de Ricardo qui a su nous faire découvrir Porto à sa façon, en nous parlant d’histoire, d’architecture, en nous montrant des petits coins charmants mais aussi des quartiers moins touristiques mais tout aussi beaux. Ça nous a vraiment permis d’en apprendre plus sur la ville et de la voir d’un point de vu différent. Merci Ricardo ! PS : pour les français, sachez qu’il parle parfaitement notre langue.

It was our 5th time in Porto and we were quite familiar with the main attractions. But Ricardo has adjusted his route and showed us more hidden, unusual and new places. Also he was super nice, friendly and involved. Highly recommend!
