    Fabulous way to see the City - highly recommend
    This was a really enjoyable way to see the city. Fabio was our guide and his love and knowledge of the city shone through. We were in a group of 7 people of mixed ages and abilities but this didn't matter as the electric bikes made the hills so easy to climb.

    Bike tour Porto. An excellent informative tour. Our guide Jonas made it a very enjoyable fun tour.
    Our guide Jonas was very informative, he also gave us lots of tips that helped us get the most out of our weekend in Porto. The electric bikes were a godsend, we didn’t realise that Porto had such steep hills! Would thoroughly recommend doing this tour!

    Great guides.. but know the bikes are not 100% electric.. you must always pedal .. some very steep hills both up/down
    Be advised some very steep hills and also going downhill. The bikes are not 100% electric, the do assist but you must pedal up steep hills. You also must maneuver on busy main roads with traffic. Not for everyone, guides are lovely and knowledgeable

    Good fun way to see Porto on E-Bike
    We really enjoyed the tour of Porto on the electric bikes. We saw a lot in the three hours, more than we would have on a walking tour. Our guide Fabio Santos was very knowledgeable, being a local! I had never used an E bike before but soon got used to it. Happy to have it as Porto is quite hilly! It was a great balance of the cycle and the stops for the information. Thoroughly recommend it.

    Best way to see the city!
    We had a very memorable tour guided by Fabio. Got to see all the sights we wanted to in Porto in 3 hours including stopping for coffee and pastel de natas! The electric bikes make climbing the hills of Porto very easy

This was an excellent walking tour and we had Fabio as our guide. He was great and very passionate about the city. We got an overall great tour of the different areas of Porto and were with a nice group of people. Fabio gave us some great tips and interesting information about Porto and even talked about his family. You could tell he really loves the city. He even gave us a guide at the end of great restaurants and things to do. I highly recommend this tour and Fabio was the best!

Fun and interesting tour , we did not go down into the historic center as there were some people with mobility issues. This was a shame but the places we did cover gave us a sense of the upper city

This tour is an excellent way to see the city and learn of the history. Our guide, Chris, was a delightful host. He was very knowledgable, funny, engaging, and made all of us feel welcomed. This is a full 3 hour walking tour so wear comfy clothes and shoes. Porto is very hilly and this tour takes you up and down the hills and through narrow alleys to some of the most beautiful historical sites. About two hours into the tour we stopped at a bakery for a treat and coffee which was included in the cost of the tour. I highly recommend taking this tour at the start of your time in Porto as it's a great way to see all of the city and give you context when planning your own adventures.

Our guide, Christobal, was terrific. He was knowledgeable, and made 3 hours go by quickly, showing us major areas of Porto, including the many historic churches, buildings, walls, statues, parks, etc. The pace was perfect.

A great introduction to the city. We returned the next day to some of the places we were interested in seeing. We booked a private tour so moved at our own pace.

This is how to do a tour, from start to finish it was very enjoyable. Fabio Santos was brilliant, I highly recommend him. Fabio really made an effort to accommodate everyone as my husband has a phobia of heights, he really made him very welcome. Lots of interesting facts he told us that otherwise we will miss if we just go about ourselves in the city. So, anybody thinking of a walking tour in Porto use this company and if your lucky you get Fabio that will be a bonus as he is very good, friendly, professional, informative and accommodating.
