Meet your guide in the office by the river. Listen to a comprehensive safety briefing, then put on your helmet, hop on your bike, and set off on your way. Following your guide, ride along the river where the streets are flat and enjoy amazing views of the city, river, and beach. 

Pass through old neighborhoods and learn about the intimate connection between the Porto river and the sea, and understand their importance in the growth of the city. Make plenty of stops throughout your ride to soak up the sights and relax. 

During your coffee break, savor the famous pastry, the Nata, with Portuguese coffee.

The 3 hours bike tour was amazing. Carolina, our guide, was interesting and super nice to talk to. She made the experience amazing. We went away from the center and saw some places that we wouldn’t have venture on our own. The parc and the beaches and the waterfront. Biking was very pleasant and Carolina was full of facts for everything we saw on our way. Would definitely recommend! Big thanks to Carolina

A great way to see the city! Walter was a great guide who took us on an absolutely amazing trip along the river and beach of Porto. The views are great, it, the vibe of the places you will visit is more relaxed. It's a nice alternarive for the city center and Old Town and fastest and most pleasent way to see the city.
