Souvenir of PORTO: City Portraits

Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal

Experience hosted by Inês

90 mins
Includes drinks, equipment
Up to 4 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

The best view of Porto is in Gaia, so why not start our experience there?

We'll meet in Jardim do Morro and walk our way trough D. Luiz Bridge to enjoy the stunning view of the city as well as the sounds of its habitants.

While in Porto's side, we'll make our way through the distinctive and authentic spots, cross the typical narrow yet very colorful streets and, of course, we'll be stopping occasionally to take pictures and talk a little bit about the city's history and chronological record.

And then, the best way to end our little trip, we'll go down to the Jardim das Virtudes and have a drink while watching the sunset in the glorious Douro River.

It's a very laid-back walk while I talk as we go and create amazing portraits of you in the city. The perfect way to remember the heart of Portugal and keep it forever in your mind and soul.

I studied photography at EASR, in OPO, in my teenage years, and then I moved to London to make a 1 year course at LCC where I started experimenting with cinematography and lighting. After that I moved to Lisbon to attend a BA Course in Cinema/Directing, where I also had the opportunity to execute Direction of Photography in several projects. Now I'm back in my hometown and inspired to share my knowledge and vision of this beautiful city. As a traveller myself, is always a pleasure to meet new people around the globe and create unique portraits while watching the sunset in Douro River.

I really enjoyed this experience with Inês who is really easy going make you really conformatble. You don't even think a lot of the picture because you talk a lot about the city and other things as well which make feel like you were with a friend. Inês has good tips about the city as well. This really is worth doing. Even if i haven't yet the picture the experience was really great and no doubt the result will be great as well. Thank you Inês.

This was such a wonderful experience! Inês is incredibly friendly and talented, so don’t worry about being uncomfortable. It was really nice to hear about Porto from a local too! I already got my pictures, and they are absolutely lovely! When my boyfriend comes with me next time, I will definitely book this experience again. Thank you Inês!!

Inês was fantastic and the experience was so much fun! We had quite a few questions and Inês answered all and also told us lots of other things about Porto and also lots of cool stories. Looking forward to see the pictures. :) On the day of the experience the weather was really bad, so Inês was so kind in letting us reschedule it for the next day, which was awesome!

As a solo traveller I’ve booked quite a few photoshoots on the way, to document myself on my journey as selfies just don’t do it for me. But I must say that this one might be the best I’ve been to so far. Inês was just the sweetest and most motivating photographer, there wasn’t any akwardness at all, it was like hanging out with a friend for a few hours. A bonus: she is also a great guide because she knows a lot about Porto’s history,... I would 100% recommend booking her, even if it’s just to get to know a fun Portuguese girl!

When you do what you really love, the result is this passion that Inês really has. Her passion is contagious which made this a really incredible experience. I would have loved to have spent more hours and hours doing this.
