we thoroughly enjoyed this activity. The people in charge of renting the bikes were extremely kind and did everything to satisfy us by anticipating the programming of the visit to the cellar with a French guide and then the boat trip. The visit to the cellar was also great and the guide extra. We enjoyed ourselves! Small flat on the visibility of the pier of the boat from the docks.

Nice introduction to Porto

We did this bike tour on the first day in Porto. This enabled us to explore the entire coastline along the Douro. Blessed! You do this at your own pace, because you can use the bike all day long. Friendly people when collecting the bikes. We did the boat trip and the port wine tasting on the same day. Definitely recommend this arrangement!

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!
