We fell in love with Porto! A major factor in our affection was the wonderful setting of the Guest House Douro, right on the famous river. The view was charming by day, magnificent by night. The guest house is within easy walking distance of many of the city's must-see sites, not to mention good restaurants and bars. Hosts Carmen and Joao grew up in Canada. They are exceptionally attentive and helpful, quick to make dinner reservations and recommendations for sightseeing. My husband, a great lover of fresh fruit, will never forget Joao's wonderful breakfasts. We are long-time travelers: the Guest House Douro was an exceptional experience.
