Our guide, Sid, was friendly, knowledgeable and charming. He gave us some excellent tips for places to eat and drink. The tour was just right, long enough to give us a really good overview of the city, but not too tiring or hard. Would highly recommend.

We thought Alex was a great guide and the route he took us on was interesting and varied. I believe we covered most of the landmarks within the inner city and treated us to some of the local delights.

This tour was amazing! Maravilhoso! The guide was top. He explained everything and has a very good knowledge about the monuments and the history. Don't worry the hills! Really, the tour got from uptown to downtown about the bridge an back to Porto. We got an overview about the beatiful city and helpful tips. I liked the Porto Bike Tour. A sporty alternative to a sightseeing bus.

Great tour - our guide was knowledgable and interesting and made a very hilly Porto seem pretty flat! The bikes were comfy and we were lucky to find ourselves in a small group. Plenty of time allowed for photos and our guide helpfully took some of my friend and me together. Nice to stop off for a coffee and a Portuguese snack. The tour enabled us to make the most of the rest of our time in Porto as it gave us a great feel of where everything was.

Virginia was a wonderful tour guide! We have taken bike tours in several European cities and have always enjoyed them. Biking through Porto really requires some assistance with the narrow streets and heavy traffic. Our tour started a bit late, but we were notified by text, so no problem. We were able to stow stuff in the van so we didn't have to carry it. The tour covered a large area of Porto with stops and historical information. We loved the Market stop and bough fresh fruit there. It was a wonderful way to see Porto!
