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.

Made a varied tour by ebike through Porto with our enthusiastic guide Teresa. She knew a lot to tell, took the time for the various sights and involved the group in the tour in a casual way. Such a tour is highly recommended for a first acquaintance with and impression of Porto.

Very pleasant this visit by bike. A good way to visit a city. Comments perfectly adapted to our group (with children). We have been by Vini, very friendly. We were able to ask him all our questions. He was concerned about our possible problems with the bikes. Recommended +++

We had a great Ebike tour with Diego! We saw so many sites and learned a lot about the city ! The e-bikes allow you to effortlessly climb the hills and cover most of the city attractions in 3 hours! Highly recommended for all ages, we went with our young teenagers.

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