Slow Motion Tours

Slow Motion Tours develops alternative touristic tours and programs with the aim of providing a different way to get to know and get involved into the local realities. Our main focus is in allowing our participants to get to know the local reality in a deep and significant way instead of “entertaining” “passing by” tourists

So our tours are not conventional touristic tours. They are focused on social, ecological and cultural aspects, in spite of the fact that history is always a very relevant element.

Therefore we guide participants through the less well known side of Porto. Old rural farms, abandoned ancient houses, city gardens, sublime panoramic views… and a lot, lot more. Above all, a Tour that for sure will surprise you at each step.


Slow Motion Tours is developed by Casa da Horta – Cultural Association, a non-hierarquical, a non-profit alternative association/spot based in Oporto Historical Centre and by Terramote351 Project, an independent cultural project based on the development of alternative tourism and social education.
