I have mobility issues, can I still do the tour?

In total, the tour covers 3 kilometers/1.9 miles. However, this is walked at a leisurely pace over the course of 3.5 hours. During the tour we have 6 stops and at least 3  of them will have opportunities for everyone to sit down and rest a bit while eating. By far the longest distance from one sitting point to the next is during the second half of the tour and it is a stretch of 1.2 kilometers that we walk in about 40 to 45 minutes. This is not a straight walk, as we do have one tasting stop, which is standing, and three points were we pause for some historical explanation and picture taking. That said, please allow us to offer an overall warning for the city. Porto is a medieval city with cobblestone streets and can be hilly in places. At Taste Porto Food Tours we do our best to accommodate all of our guests and have designed our tour to be accessible to people of all ages and mobility levels.
