I cannot begin to describe how wonderful this tour with Jose Manuel is! I loved every single minute. Jose is very passionate about photography, his beautiful city Porto, and is an incredible guide. It’s a great opportunity to see this magnificent place through his eyes. The views are stunning and many postcard moments! Highly highly recommend this tour.
Jose was a fantastic guide and tour leader. He is a pleasure to spend time with. Helped a lot with composition and other settings. I contacted him the day before to ask about catching sunrise and he had no problem adjusting the schedule for me. Picked me up early and we went to a great spot near the hotel. I spent two days with him and enjoyed it all.
I spent two afternoons with José.
José’s love and passion for his city is contagious, its is a total delight to see Porto with him, whether you are old, young, a photographer or not, he is so dedicated to what he does that everybody will have a great time with him. Please do yourself a favor, book a tour with José and see magic unfold.

José Manuel lives and breathes Porto, the city where he was born in 1960. He has traveled up and down Portugal both by car and on a motorbike since 1980, always with his camera in his bag. He is not only a deep connoisseur of his country, but also a skillful storyteller. Photographer since 1987 when he had his first Canon EOS 650, is recognized for the beauty of the landscapes he captures and for the originality of his urban photos.
He photographed in Portugal with renowned international and national photographers. He participated in several exhibitions in Portugal and abroad and saw some of his works awarded and published in book.
