Private RUNNING tours with a local guide-runner: if you are visiting Porto (Oporto), either for leisure or as a business traveller, there's no excuse not to run. Do it while enjoying the best sights of Porto with my cheerful guidance!
Tours are private - only for you or your group - which means I can adapt each tour to your available time, desired pace and preferences. Even stop for photos. Just make sure you pack your running gear, let me care about everything else!
On weekends it is possible that I am participating in a race, city or trail running, somewhere in Portugal, so please email me in advance to confirm availability.
Tour guide services/sample itinerary:
My aim is to provide a sightseeing experience in an environmentally friendly way, by means of an healthy and ancestral activity called running!
I have the luck of living in the fascinating city of Porto and therefore respect its built and cultural heritage, as much as I respect people with inquisitive minds who visit and want to dive deeper in Portugal's history or present social and political context. I'm here to help you to have the best experience possible in your stay here! Welcome to Porto, you are now my guest!
Transportation by tour guide:
Yes, transportation can be arranged upon request. But, being a small sized city, in almost every case it is possible to meet at your Hotel/Apartment front door, for your convenience.
