Nicolau is an amazing photographer who is also a great tour guide as well (who also happens to have a good sense of humor). I wanted some sunset photos and he was able to accommodate that request even though our photo session was over. He took my fiancé and I through the hidden paths of Porto for some unique scenery pictures while sharing the history behind the buildings and the spots which we took pictures at. That made the experience even more unique. He was also very patient with teaching us how to pose and where to look for the pictures to turn out nice. I can’t wait to see the final edited pictures. He will also share useful travel tips for Porto as well. Thank you for the memorable experience and Porto will always have a place in our heart!

Such an unique event. Nicolau shows you the real Porto in a really charming way. He is not only a great photographer, he is also really familiar with the history of the city. If you are in Porto you should miss Nicolau and his photo walk trough the city.

The day of our experience it was raining but Nico was extremely accommodating and met us later in the day. My partner and I have never had professional photos taken and are pretty awkward. But Nico made the experience really fun, easy, and enjoyable! Love that he also gave a tour of the city with neat historical facts. We loved our pictures and experience, and would recommend to others!

Nico is a great tour guide as well as a photographer! He knew a lot of fun facts about the places where he took us to take pictures and was able to add that extra level of specialness to the entire experience. He’s a great guy.

Nico is wonderful at making you feel comfortable in a public setting, while also doing an incredible job at highlighting the best that Porto has to offer. These were some of the most beautiful sights I have seen while on my time in Portugal and cannot recommend this experience to everyone enough! It truly is a wonderful time.
