What’s the relationship between the child and the city? They walk through it continuously, they live it while playing, but could they also learn it in a fun way?
Urban Safari is a city tour for kids that includes some of the most famous and important buildings of Oporto. It’s a tour that brings the child closer to the city, teaching him/her about the history of the place they live in. It’s also made in such a way that the child can understand the dimensions of the buildings, comparing them to the size of a real life giraffe – as if it was truly an Urban Safari!
