See the city on your terms
A few years ago, our team had to put together a Private Custom Tour in Porto for a very special traveler: Anthony Bourdain.
If you've watched all Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown episodes, you already know that Tony used to connect with the cities in a very unique way.
He was known around the world as the guy who’d eat anything you put in front of him;
He always arrived hungry to the places he was visiting;
He stayed off TripAdvisor and Yelp;
Didn't read any guidebooks whatsoever;
Always trusted locals on his travels... and very often ended up sharing a drink (or five) with a few of them.
By that time, our team of travel designers put together a special itinerary;
Built around particular topics Bourdain wanted to see addressed;
Tailored to his interests, needs, budget, and time constraints.
We feel lucky that we got to meet Anthony Bourdain once. He was an inspiration. He still is.
Today there are still not enough words to express the joy we feel every time we have to craft a Private Custom Tour in Porto.
Traveling to a new city can be one of the most exciting adventures we take on. Helping a visitor make that travel more meaningful and unique is our favorite thing.
Each Private Custom Tour is as unique as the traveler who requested it.

List of measures to keep you safe
Before each tour, your tour guide will proceed to a safe and health briefing with all the information on how to comply with basic infection prevention and control precautions
Since the new regulations were set into place (December 1st), it is required to present an EU vaccination certificate OR non-EU proof of vaccination OR a negative antigen test when accessing restaurants, tourist establishments, and local accommodations
According to the DGS (Portuguese CDC), masks are mandatory indoors (you will have to put your mask on when entering the tasting locations and walking around inside) and they are recommended outside (you may or not use your mask when walking on the street)
No physical contact with guests (hand-shakes, kisses, or hugs), which includes a safety distance of 1 meter when possible; even though we are a nation that loves hugs, kisses, and handshakes, we’ll have to keep a safe distance this time
Disinfection of all guests’ hands with alcoholic gel before entering the restaurants and after a meal - feel free to bring your own hand sanitizer, but please notice that all restaurants will be able to offer you this
Peace of mind policy
Let's imagine that you are unable to make the tour. Can you have a refund? The answer is yes.
- If we are notified within 72 hours of the tour we will be happy to offer you a refund or reschedule you on a tour anytime over the next year. We can also generate a Gift Card so you can book it at a later time - for free. Please note that, unless you are rescheduling for a specific date, we will issue a Gift Card that is valid for 3 years. If you decide to proceed with the refund, a processing fee will be charged.
