Porto: Douro River Sailing Boat Tour

Firstly the quality of the e-bikes was very good which isn't always the case when you hire bikes and secondly Valter our guide was good fun and both knowledgable and passionate about his home city of Porto. Porto is very hilly but the bikes dealt with these easily. Valter took us along interesting streets and passages stopping at points of interest or where the views were amazing. It was really interesting to learn about Porto's history but also about the culture that exists today. We would highly recommend this tour.
This was a fantastic two hours tour, really informative and perfect for navigating all the steep hills which we would never have managed on foot Our guide was Dutch and spoke perfect English We certainly felt we got our money's worth It was good fun and we covered a lot of ground The meeting point was a little difficult to find because they are currently recovering from a fire and the signage was not very good Lots of stops for photos and general questions
Our family of 5 enjoyed every minute. My kids Ages 4,6,9 loved the little cars And the open air and the fast paced. We saw many more sights than what we would have seen on our own. Our kids would have been too hot, tired, and hungry for us to try to navigate and park and walk to all the locations. We also got to venture off the beaten path to some great photo spots that were not packed with tourist.
Our guide Patricia is very knowledgeable and super friendly. We loved the history and stories she would share about Porto and brought us a very memorable last day in the city. The pride of Porto would come alive through The Age of Discoveries and why invincible is on Porto’s coat of arms. She knew each street and the right places for the best views. Thank you Patricia!!
Phillipa was amazing. She made sure we were comfortable before taking off and always made sure we were good. She taught us a lot about Porto and we feel like we made a friend. She even took us to a little restaurant that was only Portuguese speaking and told the owner what we would like. Thank you Phillipa!
