Our little black book of exclusive services opens the door to Portugal’s fastest-growing and most dynamic city.
Heading to Porto? You are not alone. Portugal’s northernmost city is well on the way to rivalling the capital Lisbon. The city presents a dynamic scene of art and culture, gastronomy and sport, and sophisticated venues, events and services are popping up daily.
Our Concierge Services can tap you into the Porto’s best-kept secrets.
Up until quite recently, Porto was better known for traditional art and architecture - the place to view Portuguese masters and the signature, baroque-style tilework that adorns so many facades and interiors.
But things are changing - fast! Affordable rents are attracting a new generation of creatives - in design, in architecture, and new craft.
While you can see major art palaces such as the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art and Museu do Porto independently, discovering Porto’s private galleries, artisan workshops and street art is more challenging.
Our Concierge Services offer expert private art and culture guides that can tailor-make tours and experiences according to your interests. Whether you are interested in learning more about Porto’s breathtaking architecture and famous bridges, or want to know about the next big thing in the world of design, you will take away valuable knowledge and insight.

The growing level of sophistication in Porto is also reflected in local gastronomy. No longer the sole terrain of grilled sardines and baked cod, local chefs are working with the finest Atlantic seafood and fresh produce to forge new Portuguese cuisine.
Hiring a private chef in Porto is the best way to understand this phenomenon. Whether you want to try new dishes or traditional ones (or both), having a chef in the comfort of your own home affords the opportunity to observe, learn and of course enjoy!
We work with a range of private chefs that cater to food lovers. From ones that combine local cuisine with African influences to experienced caterers who can cook a banquet for a hundred.
For vegans, vegetarians and those with food allergies, hiring a private chef can take the stress out of dining on your Porto holiday, making sure you eat delicious, nutritious meals that adhere to your dietary requirements.
And let's not forget the region’s famous wines from the Douro Valley! Our chefs can pair your meals with local tipples, or even organise a complete, private wine tasting.

You only have to be in Porto for an instant to see that maritime sports and pastimes play a major part in the local lifestyle. Its dramatic location - where the Douro River meets the Atlantic Ocean - fully connects the city to the sea. From the constant river traffic of pleasure cruises to the sleek yachts moored at Porto Atlântico - Portugal’s largest marina - Porto hosts a wealth of sea-faring adventures!
While it’s fairly easy to book river cruises, navigating the plethora of private boats and captains for hire in Porto can be overwhelming and often not cost-effective.
We partner with the most trustworthy operators in Porto and the best craft there is. From gracious yachts to nifty motorboats, they can show you the stunning Portuguese coastline, sail you up to the border of Spain, host a romantic sunset cruise or a fun day out for the whole family!
Did you know that it’s relatively easy for non-nationals to tie the knot in Portugal? Weddings here are big business. But we know that your wedding should be as personal and unique as you are.
Porto ticks all the right boxes for the perfect wedding destination: stunning scenery, coastal views, world-class venues and stellar catering. Not to mention easy access from most major European cities.
We are known all over Spain and Portugal as the ‘wedding experts’ - in fact nobody gets more excited by a wedding than we do! Our Concierge Services go the extra mile to turn your wedding day into a dream day.
