Francisco was an absolute pleasure to be with. He was super friendly and his local knowledge was just what we were looking for. Our 2 hour tour was excellent, and the e-bikes very new and well maintained. We saw many things we just wouldn’t have known about. We took the tour on our first full day in Cascais and now we have a great idea of what we want to go and do and where it all is. Would recommend these guys to anyone. We are a couple in our early 60s and we had no difficulties at all with the bikes and the route. Bravo Francisco!

A fun loving, informative and beautiful ebike ride along the coast. We covered about 25km, and stopped at a beautiful cafe on the clifftop overlooking the sea. Stephen guided the tour and stopped at off the beaten track places and gave a little piece of history. He was very personable and did a great job. 100% recommended. Highlight of our trip!

We received the most amazing tour from Stephen and can’t recommend this enough. He knows all the best spots and shares a great deal of history. You’ll stop along the way and have some time to walk around and check the place out. This tour far exceeded all my expectations and would do it again in a heartbeat!

Francisco was an awesome guide! Beautiful route to parts of the area we would have missed if we hadn’t done this tour. Highly recommend!!

Excellent experience. The guides were exceptional!
