Good

They were very nice and helpful. We had Hurricane Leslie came through so we hit some rain. E bikes were suppose to be used and didn't due to the rain. We got city bikes which was ok. Luckily most people in our group was in shape or it would have been a problem. My arms fell asleep during the ride since city bike handle bars sit up too high. We took a ferry over to Gia which was nice. Our guide gave us grapes on the ferry. That was awesome! Overall good experience by all.

Awesome way to get oriented to Porto!

My family of five took the three-hour bike tour with Antonio two weeks ago and really enjoyed it. We saw many different parts of the city, from the beach to the city parks to the wine cellars of Gaia. All of us plus the 3 other tour participants wore helmets, which made it feel safe and comfortable. Antonio was a great guide and explained things very clearly. He also offered us water and tangerines. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to do an active exploration of the city!

Great morning ride!

Excellent way to spend the morning, including getting a 'lay-of-the-land' around Porto. Glad we did this the first morning we were in town. A couple of medium-hills, but we were given fair-warning. The sights were well-explained, and the bikes were in top-notch condition!
