Porto City Tours by Train

Porto, Porto District, Portugal
15 Kudos
Flag
Porto is a fascinating coastal city located in the northwest part of Portugal. There is a lot to see and explore in the city and one of the best way to do it is via Train Tours. These fun touristic trains usually include a comprehensive tour around Porto city as well as the tour of Porto's famous wine cellars where you can enjoy tasting the best Port and Portuguese Wines. There are many different tours available each day, most are either for 2 hours or 4 hours. Our tour departed from Porto Cathedral and included a train ride through the historic city center of Porto and a visit to some of the oldest wine cellars in Porto.

Points of interest

Real Companhia Velha Degustação
I highly recommend to choose a tour that includes a visit to wine cellars. Regardless whether or not you drink port or wine, the tour itself is quite fascinating inside the cellar caves.
