It looks god but instead of day trips why not visit Evora overnight? And stop by Obidos? That area has so much to see. Nazaré, Alcobaça, Batalha. And it would be good to include Coimbra en Route to Porto. Renting a car will make your trip easier and will give you a better view of the country.

Obidos is quite small, so you probably can manage to see one or two other places that same day.

Not a bad plan.
You can see Porto in one full day if you wish. Consider a day cruise up the Douro or taking the train up the valley, the rails are right next to the river. The Douro Valley is amazing.

The In Patio Guesthouse in Porto is the most amazing B&B we have ever visited. Book early, it only has five rooms.
