Very nice tour for a first overview

Our guide Valter was very nice, accommodating and also super flexible. We spontaneously changed the route a bit and he gave us many good tips for the further stay in Porto. Very sympathic. Anyone expecting a classic city tour with a lot of historical information is wrong here. But for us it was perfect.

Very nice!

Along the river from Porto we cycled towards the coast with Tanja, originally from Rotterdam. We turned out to have a 'private tour' because we were just the two of us. Very nice addition to our lightning visit to Porto. After seeing the coast we had coffee with a 'pastel de nata' and we cycled back to the river via the richer neighborhood and a beautiful city park. We turned out to have time left and crossed the river by boat and cycled back through the fishing village on the other side. It was a good trip of at least 3 hours but very worth it !!

Fantastic bike tour of Porto

The trip through the city of Porto by bike was fantastic. The guide - Valter "Zenga" - is a splendid guest: welcoming, knowledgeable, funny and very communicative. During the 3-hour tour with very good bikes, he skillfully brought us to various amenities of the city, explaining us the history behind, and then took us to the ocean. We also had a nice coffee break, after which we went through the big park and finally back to the shop. As a resident in the Netherlands, where we use a lot the bike, my girlfriend and I found this tour a must. Go for it!
