Your evening Porto tour begins by meeting your driver and guide in central Porto at dusk, the most romantic time of day. Settle into your comfortable van and gaze out its panoramic windows as the city unfolds before you. Enjoy a visual overview of Porto’s best points of interest on your leisurely evening drive. 

Listen to informative commentary from your in-the-know guide as you drive past Porto’s iconic landmarks and majestic Douro River glistening from the city lights. Drive along one of the city’s most picturesque streets, Avenida dos Aliados, and admire the stately architecture and grand Liberdade Square. Admire the glowing Baroque bell tower of Clérigos Church and the Romanesque architecture of Porto’s cathedral. Cruise by the rococo São Bento train station and on through the lively Ribeirinha port district, filled with bustling restaurants and riverfront views.

But your night doesn’t end there. Next, head to an intimate local restaurants filled with visitors and locals alike for an unforgettable dining experience. Savor authentic Portuguese dishes amid traditional décor and soft lighting. Enjoy a first dish, a main of meat or fish and dessert. The meal will be accompanied by wine, beer or juice.

During your meal, enjoy the dark romance of Fado. Fado is Portugal’s own singing style, and is a beautiful folk expression of longing that people once performed outside in Porto’s alleys. Listen to a soloist (the fadista) and a classical acoustic guitar during this performance. It’s no surprise Fado is on UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage List.

Fado was great!
Helen_D
, Jul 2022
Our driver/guide, Nuno, was prompt, courteous and informative. We heard details we had not heard on two previous tours, so even though it was our last evening in Porto, we enjoyed the sightseeing aspect of the evening. The restaurant was great - very good vegetarian three-course meal made especially for us with excellent, friendly service and regular wine top-ups. The best part of the evening, though, was Fado - everyone should experience this aspect of Portuguese culture; vibrant and emotional music.

Enjoyed the dinner and, of course, the Fado music. Lots of ambiance and talented musicians. Wonderful experience, except the delay in transport, which cut some of our night tour sites.

Great food, enjoyable music, convivial company. If going solo ask to sit with others on the tour, as they automatically seat you alone. I was lucky other guests insisted I join them.

Excellent tour. Good show, great singers and very good food. Lots of wine. You get to see a little bit of the city at night. Our guide took us to a very high point on the city so we can see the city landscape at night.

This tour is fantastic. Our guide took 4 of us to vantage points on both sides of the river and was incredibly knowledgeable about history and with anecdotes. The experience at the Fado Performance was wonderful with the 2 singers and the 2 musicians giving a performance with an emotional intensity. The food and company was pretty good too.

What a fantastic night tour of Porto and an enjoyable and delicious dinner/Fado show. Our guide Yorick was very knowledgeable and personable. I would strongly recommend this non touristy, intimate show and evening out. Well worth the price for the quality of the meal and individual service. They will also pick you up at your house which is a real plus.

Pedro our driver picked us up from our Hotel on time always a good way to start a tour! He was very pleasant and spoke English well. We did not get much of a tour of Porto by Night, we basically drove across the river to the Guia side and looked at Porto for a bit and then we drove to dinner. The dinner was wonderful! We were able to enjoy two Fado singers this evening. So if you are doing this tour for a guided tour of Porto at Night ... would not suggest, but if you want a wonderful dinner and want to experience Fado ... worth doing.

There were just the two of us, which was great that you ran the tour and didn't cancel it. Guide arrived on time and was friendly with excellent English and informative about the sites and able to answer all our questions. The restaurant was full of atmosphere but the food was a little disappointing. However the Fado was very moving and all in all we were very pleased we had taken the tour.

A really good evening. We were lucky enough to have the fabulous guide, Sebastian, to ourselves and he really knew his stuff. He was very passionate about Porto and answered all our questions. The view from the monastery was incredible, worth the money alone. The restaurant was lovely - busy but with a mix a tourists and locals, typically Portuguese and the food was delicious. We had beef, 2 generous pieces each with a yummy port sauce and a traditional Portuguese almond tart for pudding - well worth the calories! The music was good also, the third singer was incredible and the guitarists were excellent. They also waited for us to have our food before the performers began their set which was a nice touch. Overall an excellent choice for our last night in a city that we fell in love with.
