What people are saying about Foz do Douro

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.

We had the best time on our cruise of the river - we learned so much and had a relaxing time. Our guides were so knowledgeable, kind, and fun to spend time with! This was our favorite day of our vacation and I know we’ll remember it forever. Thank you so much!!!!

Great introduction to Porto. The tuktuk is able to cover a lot of area in the 2 hours, so you get a really nice overview of the city and can then choose where to revisit and spend more time. We really enjoyed it and highly recommend!

Everything was great. The driver showed us so much, took photos of us as we wanted. He gave us as much time as we needed.

A goid driver, comfortable bus and we enjoyed both long and short tours
