Special walks in Porto
with Algeth Adeline Weerts
(translation to be completed)
Here the Douro meets the ocean. This city lives from a subtle and ever-present tension of contrasts.
I am fascinated by the interplay of river and sea, of light and shadow.
A nation rich in tradition and modern life, that's what Porto combines.
I am impressed by the contrasts of old and modern, poor and rich.
I love my walks and I am always discovering new and incredible views.
Would you like to go off the beaten pathes and see hidden treasures and wild places?
Would you like to get to know secluded and less known parks?
Okay - I would love to take you with me!
For your stay in Porto I would like to offer you guided walks of different duration and length. You can choose individually.
Maximum number of participants: 6
The meeting points for a walk are prominent locations.
The requirements of the walks vary and are partly indicated in the descriptions here. Public transport is also used for the walks (e.g. for the way back).
By th end of a morning walk I like to go for a group lunch!
Cost for a walk: 12 € per hour and person (costs for meals and public transport are not included).
Please also ask for individual/ individualised hikes. I am happy to create something special and suitable for your personality, adapted to your abilities and wishes. (Cost 15€ hrs./person).
Duration and level of the walks are suitable for inexperienced to advanced walkers. But the first priority is enjoyment and also lingering and marvelling.

In Porto I am called Adeline

And the famous port wine companies have their wine cellars here.
