This is a great e-bike guided tour experience. We highly recommend it! Riding along the flat Douro River and Atlantic coastline and through different city parks was a perfect activity to complement our time exploring the crowded/busy/awesome narrow streets of Porto. The office (Sara) and support staff (Tomas) and our guide (Ieva) were all great. Ieva led us through city paths and parks, stopping to explain points of interest. Having the e-bike helped in a few spots with hills when we might need to slow down to dodge pedestrians. Ieva also led us through some major streets, guiding us to the bike path that runs along the center of the street (a different street design for us). This tour would be easy and enjoyable for all levels.

First, good welcome in the bike shop, in french Our guide M. Hélio was perfect with a very high knowledge of the past of Porto, even beyond the three hours . And all in french. The path was very pleasant and varied, historic center, parks, and until the sea.

The guide was very good, despite not offering the route in Spanish, he did. One of the friends did not know how to ride a bike and adapted the route for us. Comfortable and effortless bikes. Recommended!!

Sara was wonderful. We prioritized history, design and culture over merely sightseeing.

Very relaxed pace, knowledgeble guide and a great way to see Porto
