I was really fascinated about Pedro's passion to explain 'his' city and to learn more about Porto's buildings and population. Even when you are not an architekt, it shows you other perspectives on the city and its history. Pedro opens your eyes and makes you understand why Porto is such a special place. Thank you so much.

If you're interested in gaining a deeper understanding of Porto, its communities and its residents, I highly recommend joining 'The Worst Tours'. Their locals you join really give an interesting insight into the city, its history and the dilemmas it has and is facing. I found the tour so fascinating, that I joined them a second time, two years after my first visit.

4 hours walk with Pedro and a small group of interested people. I live in Porto and even for me the tour was extremely interesting. We took some backroads and got to know the evolution of the neighbourhoods and the city. The tour helps to look at Porto and any other city with different eyes. I hope to join Pedro again when he'll do tours to other areas. Obrigado!

We turned up on a very very wet morning to join six others on this tour. It was fascinating in that we acquired knowledge of the city which we did even have questions for. Margarita was our guide and her knowledge of architecture and urbanism was immense. Tour lasted 4 hours and was rivetting throughout, despite the constant downpour

A group of us booked this tour after the name caught our attention online. On one hand we mostly loved it. Very knowledgeable guide and we learnt far more about the City of Porto during that tour than in the rest of our 4night stay put together. It's an alternative tour so you see the "real" Porto rather than the typical tourist traps, and learn about the history of the city and its architecture. My only criticisms we're it was a little too long (After 3hrs we we're asking her to wrap up as we had other things to do/see) and she did seem a bit keen to impose her political views on us. But overall it was good and would recommend it. Just make sure you set a good 4hrs aside!
