Porto is one of Europe’s oldest tourist destinations and with good reason. Its historical grandeur has left its mark with ornate churches, impressive architecture and a whole host of stories. Nowadays, street art contrasts with the higher-brow Serralves Contemporary Art Museum and Casa da Música to make a city with a lot to offer.

Go! Running Tours in Porto cover all of the key sights of the city. The Ribeira neighbourhood is a feast for the eyes due to the zigzagging alleyways and houses adorned with pastel colours and azulejos — the tiles that Portugal is famous for. Tucked away in the walls are authentic tascas where you can delve into Portugal’s eternally underrated gastronomy.

Like the city itself, Porto’s cuisine has one foot in the mountains and one in the sea. You could spend weeks discovering all that is on offer, but the city’s most famous dish has to be the Francesinha. As an informal non-disclaimer, this is absolutely not suitable for vegetarians or those keeping an eye on their waistline.

No trip to Porto is complete without tasting its famous fortified wine. Follow your nose around the warehouses where port is made, learn the history and, of course, try some for yourself. Crossing the bridges to these wineries is an experience in itself as you get views of the river and the picturesque centre. Of course, you can discover all of this with your private guide on our running tours in Porto.

Whether it’s your first time or you’re back for more, our running tours in Porto are the way to go. Forget the guidebook and see the city from a local’s point of view.
