Very cool concept. By taxi you will visit some tourist and other very nice places where you will sometimes have time to take photos. During the ride you will receive information about the sights and the driver will provide some additional information. A fun and quick way to know if you like something and want to take a closer look.

The bicycles were great! You get to choose if you want to workout or take it easy, since you can choose how much the e-bike helps. The guide was awesome! He has a lot of knowledge and a good sense of humor. He would stop us in various places to give us historical information. He was also very kind and patient.
