Full description
Make the most of your time in Porto by exploring it on 3 wheels. This full-day tour mixes riding with some walking to take you to some of the most beautiful sites in and around this Portuguese city. The day starts with a visit to the Sé do Porto, a cathedral that dates back to the city's medieval origins. Admire the cathedral from the outside before venturing into the surrounding Sé district – the oldest in the city – which remains faithful to Porto's traditions and customs. Continue to the São Bento train station, one of the most beautiful in Europe, to appreciate the approximately 20,000 hand-painted tiles lining its interior. Next, pass the commercial Bolhão area, home to a traditional market with local products, shops of all kinds, and the busiest street in town, Rua de Santa Catarina. Here, the guide will point out Café Majestic – the most luxurious café in Porto. Photograph the emblematic Liberdade Square, the Avenida dos Aliados and the Carmo and Carmelite churches. Then, cross the Praça dos Leões to make a brief stop at the Lello bookstore. Built in 1906, this shop is a must-see and is considered one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world. Reach new heights at the Torre dos Clérigos, an 18th-century tower offering 360-degree views of the city center and surroundings. Explore the verdant Cordoaria garden before breaking for a typical Portuguese lunch. After the break, head to the Palácio de Cristal Gardens, a botanical garden with unique views of the Douro River. Explore the narrow alleys of the iconic Miragaia and Vitória neighborhoods before proceeding to the Praça do Infante, home to the Palácio da Bolsa, São Francisco church, and the old Ferreira Borges market. Photograph the buildings in the Ribeira neighborhood before crossing the Dom Luis I bridge to enjoy a glass of Port wine with a view at the Serra do Pilar monastery. Continue along the Douro to the Atlantic ocean to see surfers and fishermen enjoying the waves near the Parque da Cidade.

A great full day excursion. It's easy to get around the city by tuk tuk. On foot, the same would have been really heavy and would have taken many days. Carlos was a great guide. He was relaxed, friendly, understood our special needs, knew his stuff both as a guide and as a driver. Lunch in an authentic restaurant was an experience. I felt good about the trip. It's really worth the price. We strongly recommend it to everyone.

Drivers were friendly and helpful. It seemed that there was not a planned agenda and we circled around a lot through side streets and back alleys versus going directly from point A to point B. Drivers were informative if you asked questions but, there was limited presentations at the various stops, otherwise nothing was offered.
