Wonderful experience! This is a must, especially if your time in Porto is limited. A beautiful way to get an inside view on the city’s most notable sights and Jorge’s outstanding historical knowledge supplements his sense of humor and safe driving-style excellently. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting as you get the inside scoop from a local accompanied by the comfort of a private vehicle. Jorge is accommodating, well-prepared, and a I scored some great snapshots at Porto’s best locations! He complies with all COVID-19 measures and carries hand sanitizer in the car.

Answer from Jorge

Thanks Lara for your review and specially for your company and friendship during our city Tour at Porto. As I told you «Keep your dreams» See you next time you come to Porto.

I purchased this Airbnb experience as a present for my boyfriend. It was a great surprise! We had amazing weather on a warm and sunny Saturday morning. Jorge picked us up from our hotel and drove is with his cool car around Porto for more than 2 hours. We saw the “must-see” places as well as secret gardens and hidden locations. We were told many interesting stories and information. During the whole experience, COVID-19 safety regulations were applied. In the end, we were recommended a great lunch & wine place as well as the best wine tasting venue in Porto. Thank you Jorge for this amazing experience!

Answer from Jorge

Thanks Anna for the nice reviiew and for choosing my experience to feel the city of Porto from another angle, but especially because both were so friendly and such an excellent company for that tour of Porto and Gaia. It is not very pleasant to go around in a convertible with masks on our face and disinfectant in our hands at all times, but the Clean & Safe protocol requires that and we have to be together in this fight against the virus. Best wishes to both of you for making such a nice couple. See you next time you come to Porto.

We had a beautiful and well organized day with Porfirio. He was well prepared for the trip and thought about our children. Surprised them with little toys that kept them occupied on the train. Our kids loved the guide and felt the connection with him.

“Dear Porfirio, Thank you very much for amazing day in Douro valley. We loved every moment of it💚 With best wishes,

Mell&family”

Answer from Porfirio

Thank you very much for your review, but speccially for the day you spent with me . Laura and Mark were incredible children so well prepared and always with a great mood, in spite of their ages. Congratulations to the parents that achieve such an educational level with their children. On the other hand your company and kindness made my day. Best wishes for all your lovely family.

Amei a experiência, graças ao Porfírio já conheci o melhor da região, com o diferencial do imenso conhecimento e simpatia. De brinde um pouco sobre a história do país e dicas essenciais para programar os próximos dias no Porto e região. Foi um ótimo investimento ter feito essa experiência logo no primeiro dia na cidade do Porto. Jorge é uma pessoa incrível. Muito obrigada Jorge, foi uma tarde incrível, obrigada por compartilhar um pouco do seu conhecimento comigo neste passeio tão agradável e ainda com direito aos serviços de fotógrafo. Abraço.

Nous avons passés un très bon moment avec George, il a été très attentionné, disponible. Il nous à fait visiter la ville en nous donnant pleins d’anecdotes, et de conseil pour le reste de notre séjour on avait l’impression d’être avec un ami Portugais. La visite en voiture décapotable sous le soleil c’est le top.

 Merci George pour cette magnifique visite sous le soleil, ce fut une très belle expérience. Vous avez été un super guide. Encore merci Olivier, Alexandre et Sophie

“Fantastic intro to Porto— Porfirio was kind and happy to share his wealth of knowledge about the city, making lots of stops and pointing out details I could have caught on my own. Highly recommend!”

Answer from Porfírio

Many thanks Claire for your review being from someone as you with vast travel experience. It was a pleasure having you with me to share my convertible, and present you my hometown, thanks for being so kind and listen to my historic details. Being so patient with me I owe you two hours of your vacation time, that you could enjoy running around the city. Great appreciation for your running skills and thanks for choosing my experience. Hope to see you in your next visit to Porto.

Answer from Jorge

Hi Melissa many thanks for your review and give also my best to Ryan Andrea and Luka, it was great to have you all with me we laugh and play and I’m very honoured to become your friend. On the other hand I suspended the experience until getting an answer from the Train Company CP regarding the rudeness of that worker that was a bit disrespectful, My claim will have an answer for sure. Apart that strange episode we had a wonderful day blessed with sun and spring weather. Hope we meet again one day. Yes I will send you the photos and hope you like it. Best regards. Jorge

“Thank you Porfirio! What a fantastic afternoon. We arrived via train and met you just shortly after a bakery treat and what an awesome way to kick off our Porto journey!!!! It felt so special and since we chose to have the top town, we loved as two friends seeing Porto for the first time getting to experience from convertible with our blankets seeing the city through your eyes. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and truly giving this 200% effort. Obrigada!”

Answer from Porfirio

Thank you Jen for your kind words. You were both brave girls facing the cold weather with open roof, it was great to have you with me and presenting you my lovely town. Unforgettable moments. Many thanks for choosing my experience.

Mark Chandler Carolyn Tavares

“Simply amazing! Jorge is one of the most interesting persons I have ever met and his knowledge of Porto cannot be matched. I strongly recommend this tour to all. My wife and daughter actually did a night tour in January with the top down on his car. Totally fun and while different than the day, evening lights are gorgeous too! Jorge takes you where you never would get on your own or with big tours. Worth every cent!! Our evening with Jorge was a highlight of our two weeks in Portugal! We did this tour just as we arrived in Porto which we recommend to give you a great overview. Just do it!!”

Answer from Jorge

It was a great pleasure for me to host you and your family in this little tour at my city of Porto. Thanks for being so kind and allowing me to become your friend. I felt very honoured. Hope you come again to Porto next year.

We just finished a tour of Porto in Jorge’s convertible….and WOW!
I’ve never been more impressed.
That was hands down the best tour Ive had travelling across more than 20 countries.

Jorge is the most heart warming and interesting person we’ve ever met.
He was great at bringing Porto to life and showing us the lesser known but more amazing sides to the city.
He knew all the secrets and was happy to share them with us.

We couldn’t believe how much value and info he fit into 2 hours with us. It was well paced and a genuine joy to experience.

If you’re even thinking about coming to Porto and doing a tour, you MUST book this.
It gave us a great start to the city and allows us to pick how we spend our next days.
Jorge was also kind enough to provide recommendations for restaurants and bakeries.

Thank you for the best tour!

Response from Jorge

Thanks Matt and Mel for your company and kindness. I don’t deserve your quali revue it is my job to do the best I can. Thanks a lot.

Carolyn

 Lutry, Suíça

Five Stars!! J. Porfirio is an excellent guide, and his small convertible permitted us to experience the small ‘ruelles’ of Porto, in places no normal vehicles can access. Jorge is a good driver, knowledgable, kind, proud of his city, quiet from time to time to allow us to absorb the environs. He gave a complete narrative, including historical highlights, but his tour is different each time, gauged to the guest’s interests. A MUST in Porto! Jorge is always early, so be on time for the departure to a perfectly marvelous experience!

Answer from J. Porfirio

Many thanks Carolyn for the great review. It’s very rewarding when our hõtes recognize as you did the details of my type of guiding. I don’t have the enough words to thank you for being such a sensitive person. Best regards.

Carmen Tribolet

Palm Beach Shores, Florida, United States

“Authentic” is the best expression I can use for this tour. Due to the elevated setting of Porto, I booked this tour with my mother in mind being she has walking limitations. We had only a 2 day visit to the area and booked the 2 hour tour with Jorge Porfirio upon arrival and must admit he surpassed my expectations!!! In fact, Jorge went above and beyond to assure that we absorbed as much as possible and even helped us organize (at no extra fee) our next day’s activities upon recognizing my mother’s condition. Everything Jorge suggested was perfect for us. We were able to see Porto & Gaia very comfortably from his convertible and ended up booking him again on our last day for a final farewell ride through the city. We are very grateful and content with our tours and would recommend this tour to anyone who aims for a genuine local experience. All of Jorge’s recommendations to restaurants & sites were wonderful and we now feel like we have made a new friend in Portugal.”

Answer from Jorge

Thanks a lot for such a magnificent comentary. I always do my best to show and help my passengers to enjoy the town not only when I’m with them in my car but also giving tips and programs to do later. It’s a great honour to be considered as a friend, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Give my best to your mother.

Wonderful stories, and places that we could have never discovered ourselves. The convertible car is so elite, I can’t describe the good feeling it gives. Thank you George for your friendship and passion”

Margot Glyn

“With Jorge, we were able to get a wonderful overview of the city. He was generous with his information and time. He took us to the major viewpoints to see the amazing city from all angles; he pointed out all the churches and discussed when they were built, the history and the different styles. He even took us to a secret church which is not on the tourist trail and which “blew our minds away”. He drives very well and knows his city intimately since he was born there. And we felt very stylish in his low-sling Seat convertible. We even had tourists taking photos of us! We highly recommend Jorge, especially if you have limited time to see the city, as we did!”

Answer from Jorge

Many thanks for the nice review, and thanks a lot for being so kind and such a good company. It’s as enjoyable for me as it was for you, and I just don´t feel like being working, don´t care about time just to give you the all of my hometown, it´s the feeling to travel with friends.

A experiência vale muito a pena. Jorge é extremamente atencioso e profundo conhecedor da cidade. Fomos a diversos pontos de interesse, descemos em alguns e tivemos muitas explicações.

Merci bien d’ avoir choisi notre tour de ville pour connaitre Porto. Un matin avec deux Parisiens trés sympa qui m’on permettre de découvrir un petit détail que même les livres et les habitants de Porto ne connaissent plus, et que est une petite part du mur Fernandina du siécle XIV, qui est vraiment caché de vue. Oui je comprends qu’ avoir un tour avec seulement deux heures pour decouvrir la ville c’est trés court, mais si je fait un Airbnb tour de 4 ou 8 heures avec le prix correspondant j’aurai moins clients interessés, et mon succes actuel pourrai se perdre par le prix. Mais oui  j’accepte votre sugestion et je vous remercie, j’essayerai d’étudier une solution.

“George Porfirio was the best tour guide we had over the course of our entire trip. Our tour felt unique and thoughtful and was filled with his in-depth knowledge of the city of Porto. He took us to neighborhoods and streets we never would have visited on our own, and that we wouldn’t consider typical “touristy” areas (though we did visit the more famous places as well). He has a great eye for photography and took us to the best spot for sunset shots despite the poor weather.”

Jorge reply 

Thanks Jenna and Allie for your friendly and nice company that I greatly appreciated. It was a visit that I would call low profile, due to the late hours we start, and where we found many of the places that I would like to present you already closed, and to exacerbate the situation a rain with the sunset that could not be more unpleasant. Anyway I tried to do my best in relation to the historical reports and description of the architectural styles, and the places that reveal a little of the secrets of this city where I was born. Many thanks for your positive review.

EXCELLENT: Explications de l’Histoire et des lieux historiques bien sûr. , et beaucoup plus, le mot expérience’ est bien mérité : Ce fut vraiment du sur mesure, guide attentif et acceptant de sortir des sentiers battus, et rencontre humaine, partages aussi d’expérience de Vie, Expérience de découverte, sur mesure et très libre/SOUPLE , interactive; curiosité, créativités nous ont accompagnés. Le ‘petit’ plus, c’est le joyeux regard du magicien qui tire un lapin de son chapeau. Pour résumer le questionnaire, le guide fait découvrir et plus, avec coeur compétence et enthousiasme! Et le soin: musique française s’il vous plaît ! Grand merci de cette ‘aventure’ Jorge.  J’ai apprécié ces échanges Jorge, votre côté farceur positif, gage d’inattendu. Ce n’était pas du tout une banale ‘visite’, vous étiez a l’écoute, et ouvert a l’inattendu c’était comme une danse, audacieuse comme dans cette complicité au palais de cristal. Et .. cette fierté de Père Et encore ce brin de conduite qui m’a fait gagner une heure: j’ai eu le temps pour aller voir le ‘village por pequinos’ et revenir quand le soleil éclairait la colline. ps: Les photos ne sont pas sur tablette, je vois ca ce week end, ‘esperante’..

It has been an incredible experience without parallel. Porfirio connects with people easily and shared his passion about travel and life in such a sincere way, you feel you are talking to a friend who volunteers to be your private guide. He has an unique perspective of the Porto and Portugal, which I found intriguing. He speaks perfect English and French as well. He also recommended a lot of places to be explored by myself afterwards, which is very helpful. I guess I will learn Portuguese after all, so I can partake in his passion and love for his country and people. Big kudos!

Jorge was great. Took us to many secret sites our first guide who grew up in Porto didn’t. He was very generous with his time. Had some great recommendations. I’d strongly encourage people to take this tour, plus you can ride in a convertible! Have signed up for 4 tours on Airbnb. This by far was the best tour.

Answer from Jorge

Thanks for all Tim , you were also a great company, I didn’t feel as I was working, just going around with friends. Many thanks.

A experiência é fantástica e diferenciada, recomendo muito! Porfirio te leva por lugares incríveis na cidade e tem muito conhecimento sobre história para compartilhar, fizemos o passeio ao chegar na cidade e foi uma decisão muito acertada, conhecemos lugares que tours convencionais não nos levariam, além disso, Porfirio é uma pessoa incrível e com muita didática para explicar e mostrar os lugares, adoramos!!
Muito agradecido pelos vossos elogios e muito feliz por terem apreciado esta minha cidade do Porto.

We got to see a lot of amazing places! The Santa Clara church was absolutely beautiful! Most intricate place I have ever seen! Brought one of the other guests to tears! The host was very friendly and knowledgeable! One in a lifetime tour.

“Our experience with Porfirio was exceptional! He picked us up from our AirBnB and took us on a tour of the city in his convertible. The weather was a little chilly, but we didn’t mind, and he knew about everything we wanted to learn about. We were unable to drive through the city center due to the student parade, so he took us to the outskirts of Porto and showed us beautiful churches, artwork and local areas rich with history and culture. We had the best time and learned so much. Thank you!!!!”

Porfírio answers

I have no words to express my gratitude to your understanding of the situation. On a day that we couldn’t reach the center town neither the historical area due to the students parade you enjoyed the moment and the areas we have discovered together. Thanks you are amazing.

“We had a wonderful two hours with Porfirio! We learned much about the history of Porto and what goes on currently. The morning we met was chilly, with a threat of rain. He suggested we keep the top up, but he was completely amenable to having it open. A convertible is a fabulous way to see the city. Porfirio also suggested two fabulous, and I mean FABULOUS, restaurants, which enhanced our short visit to Porto. We HIGHLY recommend this experience!”

Porfírio answers

 I humbly accept your most rewarding comments that I don’t feel to deserve, mostly because I didn’t do nothing special specifically for your tour and I tried only to do my job with professionalism and nothing else. Of course it’s very good and convenient to have reviews that makes us feel the bestseller author of the novel that becomes any of our travel when we feel a traveller. Many thanks from the bottom of my heart.

The trip is exactly as described. Porfirio was on time and knew a lot about the city. It is definitely a custom tour and you get to go to places that not many tours do. The convertible is conformable. Well done

Thanks Ben for your kind words. With sprinkles is always enjoying even more than without, cause we have something to laugh.

Thank you George for your valuable insights of the Porto . Learned a lot about the history and appreciate the historic city on a perspective that otherwise we would not have if we just walked the city on our own . The convertible is an added boost to the experience !

Reply from George
Thanks Maria for the kind words you honoured me. It has been a great pleasure the happy hours we have been together discovering my hometown.

Mr Jorge picked us up at the airport in his convertible & drop us off because I told him we only have a short layover in Porto and want to see as much as we can in 5 hours and he delivered. Such a kind, passionate, wonderful Guy. He made us a reservation for lunch at a beautiful seaside that serves beautiful meal. We enjoyed every second of our time and we’ll gladly recommend him to anyone we know. Thank you for everything!

Thanks Audra for such a interesting morning, meeting you and your husband, my first contact with someone that has also visited East Timor. Hope to meet your children in the future too. All the best to the nice couple.

“Nosso passeio aconteceu num lindo domingo ensolarado. Porfírio foi intensamente ativo e simpático durante todo o trajeto contando-nos as histórias da cidade, e depois inclusive nos deixando em outro sítio para almoçar após nosso passeio como uma simpática cortesia. Foi muito especial! Aconselho o passeio no primeiro momento que chega-se a cidade e depois você poderá escolher onde voltar e fazer uma visita específica de acordo com seus interesses. Super recomendado!”

Resposta do Porfírio

É sempre um grande prazer receber e mostrar a minha cidade a irmãos brasileiros que adoram Portugal tal qual como eu amo Brasil. Obrigado Mychelle e Ricardo pela vossa simpatia e pelo prazer de passar essa manhã juntos relatando a História comum de nossos países.

“We really enjoyed our tour in Jorge’s open top car, with lots of fun winding through the narrow streets of Porto. We learned a lot about Porto and Portugal’s history and Jorge welcomed our questions. He also gave us some great tips for the rest of our stay. We would highly recommend this tour to get to know Porto! Rebecca and Michael x”

I cannot find the words to thank both of you Rebecca and Michael, for the moments we spent discovering Porto on historical and architetural regards, and having these beautiful town in our eyes when going to the view points we had been.

“Porfirio is a very nice Tour Guide. He knows a lot about Porto and he makes the tour how you wish and you can take pictures where you want. You will see very nice places in Porto in only two hours. Really Great and highly recommended.”

Porfírio reply

It was an honour to met you both just after having accomplished your pilgrimage to Santiago doing «el Camino» You are really brave girls. Thanks for all the good mood you bring in a day that starts with heavy rain and closed roof top and after your arrival we could open roof and have sunshine over our heads.
