On The Route of Discoveries

Guided tour which starts with a visit to the Casa do Infante which is one of the most ancient and charismatic building of the city of Porto.
We continue along the Douro river bank to the end of the Foz do Douro Breakwater, passing by places and monuments related to the Discoveries and the Portuguese heroic acts.
Our Guides/Interpreters speak several languages and give a brief explanation on the navigators adventure and mainly of the people of Porto who in land made this adventure possible.
