The perfect tour!
We started our tour in the morning with Diana, our guide. Despite the weather, a bit foggy, everything was perfect. We were 4 tourists in total in the van, we kept our chosen seats social distanced and we had alcohol gel available every time when we came back to the van.
We had enough time to take pictures, for a bit of shopping and to get lost (not literally 😄) between the narrow and colourfull streets.
Diana is a perfect driver and she explained everything in details, answered all our questions and it was a pleasure to spend half a day with her. 😊
I totally recommend a tour with Living Tours!

Easy and interesting half day trip
Oct 2019
We wanted to see outside of Porto and a half day suited us with a 10 year old in tow. Paulo was a great host, knowledgeable, helpful and courteous. Aveiro is an interesting little town, not sure it's comparable to Venice however!
