CITY WAKE UP RUN – 6KFrom: €22.00
Porto is very small and offers lots of charming and lovely spots. Some of these spots are well known and easily found, while the hidden gems of the city, your local running guide will ensure that you experience.
Porto is one of Europe’s oldest tourist destinations and classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Being elected the Best European Destination in 2014, the city is now prepared to welcome a diversity of visitors. From the Port Wine cellars & boat trips to the Douro Valley for the ones looking for a more traditional visit, or the Downtown bespoke stores and trendy restaurants for the youngest, not forgetting the Casa da Música and The Contemporary Art Museum of Serralves for the Art Lovers, Porto is definitely a city in ascension. And now also running tours for the fit, the fun, the curious and nice travellers.
The tours we present cover the most important places to visit in the city, from the beach to the centre, old town and the south other of Douro river, Gaia.
I can imagine a lot of people would hate the idea of running 15km around a hilly city – but for me it was perfect! This was the first time I’ve been to Porto and it was a great experience to run around the city and get to know the sites. I went on the first morning of my stay and so it meant I was able to navigate the city for my remaining stay.
Francisco was a great guide, taking me around all of the major sites of Porto and providing good information on each area. He took a number of pictures and videos during our run and I have a great momento of my trip.
Francisco’s communication was really good and he was very proactive.
Not only was this a unique way to explore the city but also meant I was able to keep up my training. I’d highly recommend Francisco and Ready, Steady GO!
