What people are saying about Porto Cathedral

While maneuvering around the many tourists and tiny streets can be difficult, the assistance from the electric motor makes peddling around the entire city quite enjoyable. Teresa our tour guide was great when it came to providing information on the many stops we had and then some. The pit stop for a coffee was an added bonus I did not know about which made the tour even better. I would recommend this to all people who hope to see a lot of the big sites in a short period of time...assuming you know how to ride a bike to some degree.

We had Aurea as a guide, she told us about the history of Porto and the most important buildings. Porto pleasantly surprised us and Aurea showed us all nice places. The electric tuk-tuk was also a success. It was very nice not to have to hear or smell a roaring engine and we were an 'Eye-catcher'. We also had a nice chat and Aurea also told us where we could eat and drink in Porto and the surrounding area. Thank you Aurea! So worth repeating, when our daughter comes along next x!

Our driver Karma was fantastic! Super helpful, got everyone involved and gave us a great tour. I would definitely recommend it.

Had her drop us I Giaia near the water and ate at a Local spot and walked back Loved it

Terese was excellent. Very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions with a smile
