We had a very nice morning. Our guide, Teresa, took us on a nice bike ride along the river and through the city. Teresa was an enthusiastic guide and was willing to give us all kinds of tips about good restaurants or other interesting places in Porto. Highly recommended!

Diego guided us patiently and appropriately for our small group. It was a leisurely tour, we can only recommend the trip along the river to the coast. Diego loosened up the stops with anecdotes, and the pasteis were delicious. Thank you again!

An excellent and insightful tour by the best guide that my girlfriend and I have ever had, João. The view was spectacular, the guide was on point, the Portuguese pastry was on point. Recommend %
