We took the three hour electric bike tour with our 14 year old this morning. They were extremely good and patient in ensuring we got bikes that suited us even though it took a bit of time at the start. Our guide Luana (who spoke excellent English) was absolutely fab - she took a lot of care in terms of safety for us on the road and instructions on how to use the bikes as it was our first time on them. More importantly she answered our endless questions about Porto with great warmth & gave us many recommendations for places to eat, visit and things to do. Best of all Luana was friendly, knowledgeable, personable and enthusiastic about Porto. Highly recommended and a wonderfully way to get a good overview of the city as we covered a lot of ground in three hours. Thank you to Luana & staff at Blue Dragon Tour.

The bikes were a great way to get around a very hilly city. They were fun to ride and our guide was great. We made enough stops so it wasn’t too tiring and we saw a lot of the sights of Porto.

Parfaite activité, cela permet de voir les meilleurs endroits de la ville de manière ludique rapide avec des explications sur l’histoire de Porto. La parfaite activité à faire !

E-bike appears to be the best transport for touring in such hilly city. I loved to see how much our guide Diogo loved his city and shared that love with us.

Guide was terrific. Great way to glide by a lot of the city’s landmarks in less than two hours. Fun!
