We will explore the historical center of Porto through the eyes of J. K. Rowling when she lived here as an English teacher in 1992. There are possible Harry Potter influences everywhere in Porto so if you can use your imagination and get creative, this is a brilliant way to spend an afternoon if you’re a Harry Potter fan! Enjoy this unique experience and at the same time, wander around Porto and get to know the city more, take in the atmosphere and experience the magic of Harry Potter!


What we will do
This is the first tour of it’s kind which combines all the places which may have inspired the Harry Potter books and was created by detailed research from locals in Porto. We have a special relationship with some of the places we will visit such as the ‘broom shop’ where the owner is making wooden ‘Nimbus’ broom sticks and magic Harry Potter wands specially for our tour in their workshop.

We’ll meet in front of the Majestic Café

About your host

I am originally from the island of Madeira in Portugal. I am a huge Harry Potter fan and started reading Harry Potter books when I was 8 years old. While I was studying at the University of Porto, I became fascinated by all the obvious connections between Porto and the characters, places and names in the books, so I created this tour about my ideas and discoveries.

The Harry Potter tour was nice! Our guide Kiki was lovely and knowledgeable. She pointed out local hotspots for good food and drink as well. It was an excellent way to explore Porto. Definitely recommend.

Vanessa was very enthusiastic and gave us a lot of information I didn't know before. She showed us a lot of places, which inspired J.K. Rowling and told us a lot about how and where she worked. All in all, it was a very nice tour and a different way of exploring Porto. I would recommend this tour to every Harry Potter fan!
