Claudio was a great guide. He not only provided a wealth of information about Porto, but was also great to talk to about Portugal in general. The kids enjoyed riding in the front of the boat, and there was only one other person besides our family on the tour, so a very personalized and engaging experience.

Flavio was an excellent guide!!! He explained to us a lot of history of every street we walked through. The activity did include all the traditional things you wan to do when coming to Porto.

Was a great experience! The crew’s Pedro and Silvia were awesome. Very kind, very respectful and vey knowledgeable about Porto history. I recommend them 💯 %.

Pedro was an excellent guide. Great overview, very informative. He recommended a couple of restaurants and we tried both. Both were great

Porto is an amazing place to visit and getting around on the electric bike is the very best way to enjoy it.
