Things to do in Porto, Northern Portugal: The Best Photography Tours

November 20, 2021 Enedina Augsburger

The town that gave the country (and port wine) its very name, Porto is Portugal’s second-largest metropolis after Lisbon. Sometimes called Oporto, it's an age-old city that has one foot firmly in the industrial present. The old town, centered at Ribeira, was built on the hills overlooking the Douro River, and today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 14th-century São Francisco church is a main attraction, as are the local port wine cellars, mostly located across the river at Vila Nova de Gaia.

We had an unusual custom tour that had to be done over the internet because of travel restrictions. Oporto Moments were wonderful. They were quick to respond to our questions, they were pro-active in making arrangements. Very happy we found them.

Do you know those moments that you wanted to last forever? A family trip, a honeymoon, the first trip alone, a encounter with whom we love or an encounter with ourselves? Well I'll tell you: there is a "magic formula" that is called photography and, with it, we can perpetuate those moments that don't come back. Let's walk the streets of Porto, make amazing photos and share a unique experience. If you've never taken part in a photo shoot before, I can help you look natural and feel comfortable in front of the camera. And look, there's no need to worry or feel embarrassed about participating in the group experience. They are just normal people wanting good photos. ***This experience is private and if you come as a family, groups of up to 4 people or as a couple, you only need to reserve ONE place. If you have any questions, please, contact me :)

Francisco met us at our boat. He couldn’t have been nicer. Drove us to meet Louis, our Tuk-Tuk driver who took us on a 90 minute tour of the city. We went to small neighborhoods and Louis gave us the history and sense of everyday life in Porto. We had been to the cathedral in the past so he suggested the railroad station. There we saw the most beautiful murals of hand painted tiles. I was mesmerized by the detail. Louis explained what these murals represented. Francisco than picked us up and we were off to the Mercado Market in Matosinhos for a delicious lunch where we picked out our fish and then dined on a delicious meal right in the market. Great local experience and wonderful food and service.

We booked a Localgrapher for a couples shoot in Arizona. The results were okay at best, and we regretted not seeking out an established local in the area. For the price, we received 60 very average choices and the ability to select 35 shots. We couldn’t even find 35 framed correctly. The localgrapher website is also a joke which requires a youtube video to figure out. The UI is terrible and the photos will disappear rapidly so do not wait to download (set aside a couple hours - that’s how bad it is). But really, just avoid. Hire someone directly.
