Política de Turismo Responsable

Here, at My Ribeira Guest House, we face the good habits of sustainability as a way of being, of building a better future either for our company as for our employees, families, guests, suppliers and society in general. Being aware of the importance of maintaining a sustainable touristic development and undertaking the specific principles adopted by the World Sustainable Tourism Letter, My Ribeira Guest House is committed to a sustainable management in its activities, making a pledge to improve social, economic and environmentally.

Therefore, we underlie all our policies and values on that perspective and are committed to:
motivate and train our employees in the awareness of the principles of Responsible Tourism

  • promote good environmental practices
  • participate in external activities and inform both internal and externally about our progresses and company environmental actions
  • fight against any form of exploitation and commercial harassment, particularly involving children, teenagers, women and minorities
  • include our effort to create accessibility measures for people with disabilities (sensorial, physical, intelectual and psychic ).


At My Ribeira Guest House we seek to welcome our guests with familiarity and proximity and accompany their stay in a way that gives them access to a more original and genuine Porto. We favour local habits, traditions and products and are more than happy to share our knowledge as born inhabitants of Porto.


We are proudly from Ribeira and from Porto and seek to merge the traditional with the contemporary by offering unique and genuine experiences where the guest is the main character.


The values that regulate all of My Ribeira Guest House’s activities are:
  • Proximity and familiarity
  • Quality and availability
  • Face to face communicatio
  • Exchange of experience
  • Respect for the rhythm and interests of each guest
  • Attention to details
  • Slow living
  • Innovation
  • Sustainable practices
This Responsible Tourism Policy will be updated whenever circumstances require it, adopting and publishing in both cases new sustainability objectives.
