My running tour of Downtown Porto and World Heritage was the ideal introduction to this beautiful city – how fantastic to be shown around Porto by a local and get a workout and some photos at the same time! JP was a great guide, full of interesting fun facts about various points on the tour. He was always very attentive to traffic and adapted the tour to my level (and to the glorious spring morning!). If you enjoy running, I highly recommend starting your visit to Porto with Porto on the Run – you won’t regret it!

I can very much recommend the tour. we choose “Downtown Porto and World Heritage” – but we enjoyed very much the flexibility of our 2 guides João Paulo and Vitor! They knew so many secret running paths and all the best photostops! After the tour we had a good orientation of the city which was not only helpful on the afternoon but also on next days marathon! Thanks again!

 Thank you for showing me your beautiful city during our run together.

It is amazing how much I saw, and learnt about Porto while we were jogging together. I got a lot of information,a super work-out, and now I share your enthusiasm for this picturesque ‘pearl’ on the Douro and its friendly inhabitants. This was a unique experience (for a very moderate price!) Best regards, and best wishes from Luxembourg.

Porto on the Run offers a unique way to see the city that trumps all the rest. No other tour allows you to see so much in a such a short amount of time, converse with a friendly local, and put in a great workout. Keep the car in the garage and lace up!

Today run was a great and inspiring experience. To run through Porto with a guide is a great way to see the different sights and to get an overview. My guide gave a lot of interesting information about the city and Portugal which inspired me to explore the city further. As running is one of my interests I appreciated especially the information I got on running races in Portugal. Porto on the run, hereby recommended.

I had a great run through the city and saw lots of great sights. The guides were knowledgable, funny, and helped keep me safe from traffic. I’d do it again in a heartbeat!

This morning, Hortensia and I did our first running tour ever.  It was a fabulous experience!  Victor is a great ambassador for Porto.  He showed us with great pride his “Invincible City”.  From the Porto train station ‘azulejos’ to the thermometer in the wall, he showed us hidden jewels in this beautiful city.  It was also great to get oriented with the main attractions.  Our only regret was not to have done this tour earlier during our stay in Porto.  Bravo to Porto-on-the-Run, and thank you for being so flexible to all our needs before the run and during the run!

A fantastic way to see a beautiful city. It’s the first time I have done on of these but I would highly recommend it, it was worth every penny. I ran with JP who was very knowledgeable about the city and took me to see the best parts whilst providing a commentary. On top of that he was a really nice bloke and we had a great hour. This is a must if you are a runner and have an hour free in Porto. Thanks JP – keep in touch.

Thank you for this experience. I normally run on my own when I’m abroad, but now I know I’ve been missing a lot.

Nosso grupo adorou a cidade e a forma como o cara da Porto on The Run no acompanhou. Escolhemos o percurso marítimo e ele nos levou por locais que não conseguiríamos nunca encontrar sozinhos. Ainda bem que fomos correr nos primeiros dias porque ficamos com vontade de lá voltar e voltamos mesmo para ver melhor esses belos locais que a cidade tem. A corrida nos deu fome e o bacalhau ao almoço estava uma delícia.

What a great experience. It’s the first time I do a Sightseeing of this kind and I really recommend it. I saw so many places that otherwise I would never know about. I ran with Paolo and he was fantastic. Please send my regards to him.

My running tour certainly worth both the money and the time I spent. I didn’t notice the time passing by, so I felt that it was so short. We were lucky we catch god weather and I could take some fine pics. Let me just suggest longer runs. I would have done it if you had that possibility. Thanks for the experience you provided me.
