It is an incredible way to see and understand Porto in a day. Directions and suggestions provided were superb. My only complaint is that the port tasting which I thought was part of the fee was an additional cost so I deferred. I also paid for a bag lunch which they forgot to give me after noting I was supposed to receive it. Very nice people and I had a great day. Could use the libre port now!

Freedom of organization for the boat that we chose to do in the morning then visit of enfurada then swimming in the lagoon and hearty snack (several small dishes) and very well located at the edge of the Douro! The sports afternoon with more bikes and we were able to stop at the Serralves museum and park. We also took the time to stop for a coffee or a drink from time to time! Recommended +++

Nice ride

We rented the bikes for the day, it was very nice! The meal was finally canceled 'because the restaurant was closed but the person reimbursed us the equivalent when arriving. The recommendations on the tour were very good. The boat tour has explanations in all languages so top. The tour of the cellar is fast but well explained. I recommend compared to the quality 'price!
