Porto is an amazing place, and with so many biking areas including the beaches and seawall. The bikes we rented were a little dated, but the people running the shop were fantastic and ensured we had everything we needed. The boat river tour was a nice value-add, and if we could re-do anything, it would be to skip Calem Port Tasting as it was a bit too big and corporate for us. We would have preferred doing the other tour option which was Burmester. A smaller and less touristy tasting house. Please note that the city is busy and that biking over the bridge to Gaia means that you will have to bike on the road over the bridge, however, there is so much traffic, that you will have to stop numerous times. Confidence is a necessity.
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!
It was really fun to ride in this mini car. It can go up to 50 km/h and uphill, which is important here in Porto. The owner was very helpful and he gave cleare instructions in how to drive the car. My friend and I had a lot of fun!
